Doepfer R2M V2 MIDI Ribbon Controller

Doepfer R2M V2 MIDI Ribbon Controller V2 (controller with manual and power supply), now equipped with a much more sensible pressure sensor and the improved sensor works even along the entire manual, generates control signals by moving the finger on the ribbon manual. The output signals are generated as Midi and CV/Gate control voltages simultaneously. Consequently R2M allows to control both Midi and CV/Gate based equipment (e.g. analog synthesizers or analog modular systems).

Excellent Midi Ribbon Controller

Mark3381, 20.04.2014
I bought this device to use with my modular synthesizer (mostly synthesizers.com modules) and Moog Little Phatty, to control the pitch of the synth or the filter cutoff for example.

The R2M is a great Midi controller. It is both position- and pressure-sensitive. The position-sensitive output is Midi note data. It can output any specified octave or range of octaves of Midi notes, and if desired, it can also output pitch bend data when you are between notes. It also sends note-on and note-off data when you touch/release the ribbon. The pressure sensitive output can send aftertouch, or pitch-bend, or any Midi CC, or nothing.

The r2m also has Control Voltage outputs. Personally I found that these did not work as well with my modular/phatty, as the voltages do not seem to be powerful enough to work with my analog synths, for example the Gate voltage does not seem to be powerful enough to gate my phatty. Perhaps the voltages work with doepfer eurorack modules better. When using the R2M to control my analog synths, what I usually do is send the Midi from the R2M into my Kenton Pro Solo Midi-CV converter, and use the voltages from the Kenton into my synths. This works really well, for instance it gives me really wide-ranging and at the same time precise control over the filter cutoff of my synths, if I send the position voltage of the R2M into Filter Frequency of my analog synth (before sending it to my synth, I also put this voltage through a slew limiter / lag processor, to smooth out any glitches as I go between notes on the R2M, since it seems to send note-off message for the note it is on, before sending the note-on message for the next note I glide to).

Overall I am very pleased with my purchase of the R2M and might get another, as a second controller for my modular. I feel it is worth the money and I would certainly replace it if it were lost or broken. I also own a vintage-style "Walking Stick" ribbon controller, which has expression-pedal-style outputs. The Walking Stick has a very nice "vintage" look and feel, but mostly I tend to use my R2M. It has the advantage that, when you release your finger from the ribbon, it holds the position voltage output at where you left off. My Walking Stick is not able to do this, when I release my finger from it the Position value jumps straight back to zero. The Pressure Sensitive output of the R2M is not highly accurate, for instance you would not want to use it to play notes, rather it can tell whether you are pressing lightly, a medium amount, or harder onto the ribbon. So for example it is useful if you want to use Position output to control the Pitch of your synth, and Pressure to control volume, or filter frequency.

Doepfer pack The controller Dangerously

13.04.2015
The only thing which I wanted to comment on, is the packaging of Doepfer.
The manual and controller roaming free inside the package..The controller box has a very sharp corners, and he wrapped only in Plastic bag. What happened in my case is that the controller "Stab" the manual with its sharp corners, and made a number of small holes in the transparent coating of the manual (the playing area).
Luckily it does not effects its function, but the finger 'scratched' a bit when playing in the holes area. It also does not look so good, and definitely annoying.

Besides that, the instrument itself is very cool.
