Multi-Touch Display

The heart of your Force experience. Launch Clips, browse your sounds, edit MIDI data, manipulate samples, apply XYFX, sculpt synth sounds and much more all from Force’s 7-inch full color capacitive multi-touch display.

Matrix

Tactile control for an unrestricted creative flow. Trigger scenes/clips, step sequence, finger drum in MPC 16 Pad Mode and play note data with an expandable 8X8 clip launch matrix with radiant RGB backlighting.

Control

Discover new ways to enhance your performance via 360-degree rotary encoders with OLED feedback – smart assignments and multiple modes provide immediate real-time access to all core controls or link to any assignable parameter for a truly customized experience. Capture and playback any changes with real-time FX automation.

Command

Experience total control of your performance. Navigate your project, control clip/scene playback and access critical mix control (mute/solo/cue) right from the hardware with Force’s ergonomically-positioned controls.

The Ins

Load your samples from either USB Thumb Drives or SD Cards – there’s even a dedicated SATA drive bay for internal storage expansion. Capture audio with (2) XLR / ¼-inch combo inputs with phantom power, switchable to line/instrument level.

The Outs

Route your audio to two stereo ¼-inch outputs, selectable per track within Force’s UI. Use the headphone out as a cue bus to audition clips / scenes. Take control of your modular gear with four independent cv/gate outputs and unite your peripheral MIDI equipment courtesy of MIDI In/Out/Through ports.

At the heart of Force is an intuitive clip-centric workflow that forms the creative core of your performance. Combine multiple Modes with Plugin Tracks, MPC-Style Drum tracks, Audio tracks, Keygroup tracks, MIDI tracks and CV tracks to define clip types, then sculpt clips via step sequencing, drum pad performances and note data.

Trap Performance and Tutorial

Audio Tracks

Capture Audio from the dedicated combo inputs, load / sequence samples from Force’s browser or resample from another track.

Tutorial - Creating and Recording Tracks

Drum Tracks

Browse the expansive factory kit library or create your own with samples loaded from USB thumb drives or SD cards. With full MPC Sample Editing functionality fused with 16-Pad or Step-Sequencing performance Modes, it’s simple to create your perfect groove.

Plugin Tracks

Hard-coded into the Force Architecture are four premium synth engines, each with full editing capability for immersive sound sculpting potential. Sequence via a traditional piano roll, apply the onboard Arpeggiator or switch up to Note Mode for instant access to intelligent chord, progression and scale options.

Keygroup Tracks

Load multi-sampled instrument keygroups and playback samples chromatically via a MIDI keyboard or Force’s pads. Using the on-board autosampler, create your own keygroups from your outboard synth gear and sound modules for instant recall within your project.

MIDI Tracks

Send your track’s MIDI data to an external MIDI device including synths and drum machines. Connect your peripheral studio outboard to Force and sample your gear to an Audio Track.

CV Tracks

Get the most out of your modular rig. With CV tracks send your track’s MIDI data to external devices via Force’s 4 CV/Gate outputs.
