Easy to master and use MIDI footswitch for quick programs changes.

Whether you're a MIDI-meister or amongst the MIDI-mindless, the Tech 21 MIDI Moose is a super simple, stage-friendly alternative to access 128 patches. Tech21's intuitive engineering eliminates the intimidation of trying to decipher an encyclopedia-sized manual just so you can change a darn program. Like its MIDI Mouse cousin, the MIDI Moose is also battery operable and provides a minimum of 200 hours usage. Its sophisticated battery-saving feature turns off the numerical display after 5 seconds. What if you forget where you were? Just hit the footswitch of the individual patch LED that has remained lit, and it will wake up the display without making any program changes.

Housed in a sleek aluminum chassis, there are Up and Down footswitches to select groupings of 5 preset programs. Individual silent-switching, custom actuators instantly engage each program change directly within the selected grouping.

Operable with standard 9V alkaline battery (not included), optional power supply (Tech 21 Model #DC2) or phantom power via the MIDI cable.

Actual size: 17"L x 3.6"W x 1.5"H.

Returned because buttons were too loud

By Forest

from Oregon

About Me Professional Musician

Comments about Tech 21 MIDI Moose Footcontroller:

I loved this item in terms of its simplicity but returned it because the buttons were too loud. Even though both the site and the box say "silent-switching", the buttons are literally louder than a normal stombox, especially since the alluminum case is basically hollow, so you get a loud, resonant click. In an intimate jam setting or for any recording application, that is obviously unacceptable. I asked for MF to pay return shipping and the guy on the phone said since it's not defective he couldn't and also argued with me about the symantics of "silent-switching". It still seems to me like silent means silent - but I didn't have time to argue with him all day. Regardless, that was very poor service.
Also note: I am writing this for the second time since my first wasn't "allowed through" I guess. Not sure why; and seeing as I've spent countless thousands of dollars on this site, I'm more than a little offended.

    Comments about Tech 21 MIDI Moose Footcontroller:

    The Midi Moose worked with Eleven Rack right from the box. I didn't need it to change effects on the fly, but to instantly access factory and user presets. I'm using it in a home studio, but can imagine how well it would work live.
    I was worried that I'd have an extensive midi programming task ahead of me, but there was nothing to do with the Midi Moose but plug and go.
    If the stomp switches hold up, the thing might last forever.

    Simple, easy, solid

    Comments about Tech 21 MIDI Moose Footcontroller:

    In my decades of professional playing, I have used a bunch of Sansamp (Tech 21) products. All of them are superb. This midi pedal is no exception. The main features are: simplicity and ruggedness.In case you haven't seen them in person, Tech 21 stuff is built from heavy-gauge steel, not plastic. And it is obvious that the designers who work at Tech 21 are guitarists, or at least understand our needs. All their products are easy-to-use. This pedal has the shortest manual for any midi controller I have ever seen. You can literally plug it in an use it in just a few minutes. Also, if you have the PSA1.1, this is a perfect complement. It allows virtually instant switching between preamp settings, and (depending on what effects you use) instant switching of any outboard effects. Another nice feature is the phantom power through the midi cable. That means you don't have to hassle with an extra power supply, AC cord or batteries. Although this efficient little thing will operate MANY hours on batteries, (and I keep some spares around just-in-case) I love the simplicity of unwrapping the single midi cable, placing the foot-switch, then PLAYING!Even though this is an American made product, it is not too expensive. Compare it to other foreign midi pedals that sell for one or two hundred dollars more. This one works, is built like the proverbial tank, and won't give you a headache trying to figure it out.

    Well built

    Comments about Tech 21 MIDI Moose Footcontroller:

    My only concern when ordering this was that the switches seem close together, but they are actually perfectly spaced. you may have a little trouble if you cant look down to change patches because you're singing etc.
    very easy to use. virtually no setup time. pick your midi channel when you power up and youre good to go. im using is it with a tech 21 psa 1. powered by adapter ,9v battery , or phantom power through 5 pin midi cable if your device supports it.
    Built like a tank! Style of battery compartment dosen't seem very well thought out though.
    Not cheap but a better value than most of the larger midi controllers.

      Comments about Tech 21 MIDI Moose Footcontroller:

      I purchased a used amp that had a non-working footswitch so I thought I'd try this since the amp is midi enabled. I made a good choice.

      I'm new to midi but it's so simple even a drummer could use it! You can set up 128 programs and you can bank up or down in groups of ten to find the program quickly. The switching is instant and no pops are audible through the amp. The switches are easy to push but are solid feeling and the housing is aluminum so it's rugged enough to use on stage. I couldn't be happier.
