Ein solides Teil
Peter2707, 19.05.2021
Ich bediene mit dem EC4 alle Arten von Musiksoftware und Hardware. DAW, Effekte, Instrumente.

Andere Controller sehen beeindruckender aus, mit zappelnden Led-Ringen und pipapo. Ich hatte schon einige unter den Fingern und keiner war das Gelbe vom Ei. Die Encoder hatten eine erschreckend kurze Lebensdauer oder waren von Haus aus schon schlecht. Die Software war auch oft völlig verbastelt.

Der Faderfox EC4 kommt zwar etwas altbacken daher, aber da steckt sowohl bei der Programmierung als auch der Komponentenauswahl und Fertigung Einiges dahinter. Ich bin mir ziemlich sicher, dass dieses kompakte Gerät sehr lange auf meinem Tisch stehen wird.

Die Bewertung verlangte von mir, den Sound zu beurteilen. Ich habe 5 Sterne gegeben, obwohl ich den EC4 noch nie gehört habe. Ich vertraue ihm.

Kleiner Alleskönner
TomN68, 11.06.2020
Wer einen kompakten externen MIDI-Controller sucht, kommt um Faderfox kaum herum. Qualitativ gibt es definitiv nichts auszusetzen.

Dank des Displays hat die Bedienung (Programmierung) und Übersichtlichkeit im Vergleich zu den anderen Faderfox-Controllern noch mal deutlich zugenommen.

Das es als Mini-MIDI-Router fungiert (USB/Din-MIDI) ist ein netter Zusatzfeature.

Einzig der Preis ist Wermutstropfen. Aber Qualität kostet nun mal.

Es existiert übrigens ein webbasierender Editor (siehe Hersteller-Seite / läuft momentan nur mit Chrome). Backups lassen sich damit auch leicht herstellen ohne zu einem Sysex-Tool greifen zu müssen.

Beachten sollte man allerdings das nur ein Din-Midi-Adapter mitgeliefert wird. Damit sich die Controllerwerte am Parameter-Änderungen am Gerät anpassen können, braucht man allerdings einen zweiten (also am besten gleich mitbestellen).

Du matos solide qui fait ce qu'on lui demande !
bbxn, 13.01.2021
Dans un univers de controleurs midi qui font un peu tout et n'importe quoi et qu'on balance après 6 mois, ce controleur m'a vraiment fait du bien ! Je l'ai recu il y a environ 3 mois et je l'utilise tous les jours pour construire mon propre controleur midi pour Ableton (à base de control surface script), c'est un gros gros kif et j'ai quasimment arrêté de toucher à mon push2 et à mon octatrack depuis que j'ai ce truc entre les mains (et soyons honnête que j'ai découvert python pour ableton ^^. ps : pour les gens qui sont intéressés par le dev créer sa surface de controle c'est vraiment un délire). Bon je les reprendrai après c'est sur mais je m'amuse de fou avec cette petite boite.

Je trouve que l'ec4 a 2 grandes qualités :

- D'une part il est robuste : les potards fonctionnent parfaitement et la machine dégage une impression de solidité. La connection usb est flawless. Niveau utilisation le petit écran pour gérer les assignations cc / note / program change etc .. est vraiment bien pensé, j'ai pas utilisé l'éditeur logiciel une seule fois. Honnêtement avoir un controlleur midi où on peut aussi facilement changer les messages envoyés sans aller dans 45 sous menus ou faire des vieux mappings avec midi-ox ca fait plaisir.

- D'autre part et c'est vraiment le game changer pour moi il a un rayon d'action ciblé mais le gère très bien : à savoir envoyer du midi via usb point barre. Ca donne l'impression d'outiliser un outil plutôt que l'outil nous utilise si je puis dire ! Créativement c'est plutôt rare, d'habitude j'ai toujours l'impression de les machines m'empêchent presque autant de faire des trucs qu'elles me le permettent.

Bref, pour ceux qui comme moi on juste besoin d'un couteau suisse midi qui fait le taf sans rajouter de fonctionnalités bidons c'est lourd :)

Toll verarbeitet und sehr gut einsetzbar
ztok, 01.02.2021
Sehr schöner Controller, zwar etwas teuer aber definitiv sein Geld wert - man findet zur Zeit nichts vergleichbares auf dem Markt.
Universell einsetzbar und wertig verarbeitet und das Display ist hilfreich wenn man mal die Übersicht verlieren sollte ;-)
