USB Powered and Plug-and-Play
The OhmRGB is a class-compliant plug-and-play MIDI device. This means you don't need to deal with any drivers or worry about your operating system: simply connect it to your computer and start playing. Power comes from the USB port on your computer, so no power adapters, cables, or power strips fill up your gig bag. Just one USB cable is all you need to power and play your instrument.
All the buttons on the OhmRGB have multicolor LEDs with seven different colors. The colors on the LEDs can be changed by sending it MIDI messages from your software or using scripts like the one for Ableton Live. Use the editor to set different color states to create visual maps and indicators for use during your performance.
Expansion Jacks and MIDI In/Out
The OhmRGB come with our expansion module for added adaptability, flexibility and control. Two 1/4"” jacks allow you to connect Roland-style foot pedals and single analog controls. Put your feet in the mix for additional controls, or experiment adding different sensors and switches. If that’s not enough, you can add up to eight more analog controls with the pin header connection. Accessorize your setup with the XPC Expansion Controllers using a single cable to connect to the expansion jacks. Of course, the OhmRGB's Builder series BYOB boards can also be easily integrated for a totally customized and modular setup.
The OhmRGB also has standard 5-pin MIDI In and Out ports, giving you the ability to control other instruments and devices. Analog MIDI gear, sequencers, samplers, sensors, or custom-made controllers can all be controlled with the OhmRGB. Other MIDI devices can also be connected to the OhmRGB MIDI input allowing you to easily integrate the OhmRGB into your existing setup. You can also control multiple computers at once by using both the USB and MIDI output connection simultaneously.
The OhmRGB Editor provides an interface for changing the MIDI assignments of the OhmRGB buttons, knobs, sliders, and LEDs. Sliders and knobs can send out a variety of combinations of control and pitchbend data. Buttons can send out note or controller messages. LED colors can be customized and set to different states. Multiple presets can also be created and stored internally on the controller for on-the-fly changes.
