We designed and produced the first-generation TONE Shifter Mega controller in 2005, and it was just a simple MIDI controller used for popular desktop multi-effects at that time when software effects are not so popular. The next year we produced the TONE SHIFTER 2.0, which can directly be used for controlling software effects and hardware equipment.
MIDI COMMANDER is a unique control device in the market, and it is a very special control pedal in the Tone Shifter series. It is convenient for the guitarists to control and switch the tone by using foot switch when they use the high-end devices (such as Software effects, advanced multi-effects, rack equipment and tube Amps with MIDI control).
TS MINi is one of the hero products in Tone Shifter Serials. As a high resolution audio interface, it combines many useful functions for recording and live playing in its potable size and simple connection. Instruments like electric guitar and high-end condenser microphone can be used at the same time connecting to TS MINi.
A: Only in Windows system that we need to install proper ASIO drivers to achieve low latency recording and monitoring, or software effects. The device can be used on Mac OS, iOS, and Android just when plugged.
A: For all the iDevices with lightning connector, we need a cable which called “Lightning to USB camera adaptor” (May also be called as Apple OTG cable) to connect the standard USB plug with the lightning connector. After connecting, enable the MIDI control in the Apps. It can work together with any other audio interface to use software effects, you can connect by a USB Hub to join the audio interface and the MIDI Commander. An anther way is connecting to audio interface through MIDI IN jack (Such as TSMINi in Tone Shifter Series). It should be noted that，for most Lightning OTG cables, it is required that the external device current should be limited.
A: MIDI controller is the build-in function for many high-end gears and software. Only with MIDI commander, it can greatly play the function of gears and realize new usage scenarios. We can say MIDI commander is a creative tool for every electric guitar player, electric bass player, musician and producer.
A：Let us check the problem in several aspects. Firstly, check is the hardware connection valid, including whether the OTG cable or MIDI cable works. Then, if the MIDI channel for receiving equipment matches with the commander. When controlling software or hardware, please check whether the MIDI function of the HOST enabled or not. Last, check if the footswitches respond correctly, and the screen display shows normally.
A： Yes. The guitar input is also perfect for bass. You can find lots of bass effects in Apps like JamUp, Bias FX, etc.
