ROBOTRON is a MIDI controller that looks and feel like an analog synthesizer! It is hand made in France, with the highest quality material, it's very robust and durable, like the vintage machines that made history. Robotron has 26 potentiometers and 6 momentary switches. They are all assignable to any CC you desire. By default the layout of ROBOTRON gives you the essential commands of pretty much every synths that exist.

Robotron comes with a Max for Live plugin that allows you to map your virtual synths on the fly and save the mappings once and for all. You can download it here. A VST version of the plugin is coming in 2024.

Robotron has 9 sections. Oscillators, mixer, filter, 2 enveloppes, a volume, LFO, a MIDI channel selector and the free to assign knobs. Every knobs and buttons are assignable.
It works on all DAWs.

With its 16 MIDI channel selection directly available on its panel, you can quickly switch from one instrument to another, without touching your DAW. You can also control all your hardware synths using the MIDI OUT of your computer.
For those who work without no computer, a very small USB to MIDI DIN converter is coming in 2024 and will be included with Robotron at no extra charge. When you order now you'll receive your converter as soon as it's available.

The assign section has 6 aluminium knobs, the same found on Sequential Circuit synthesizers. The other knobs are made of Bakelite, an extremely solid plastic invented by Leo Baekeland in 1907. Bakelite can resist extreme temperatures and chemicals. Those knobs are the same found on Moog synths.
The top panel is made of anodised aluminium with a beautiful brushing effect to it. The wood sides are made of exotic Sapelli, often used on boats for its robustness and beautiful look.

  1. Not quite sure that the current economy needs a luxury boutique device. One could get five Novation SL Zero for the price of one Robotron.
