Beat Bars EX3 Programmable MIDI Expression Pedal
Make a real difference by streamlining your creative process.
Now you can make your ideas come to life even faster.
Unparalleled flexibility when using MIDI and working with a DAW.
EX3 converts your foot’s movement into a stream of MIDI messages, making it an essential tool for controlling thousands of VST plug-ins.
The pedal provides extensive configuration options for controlling parameters in DAWs and virtual instruments.
As a keyboard player, you can modulate any sound parameter. For guitarists, it makes controlling effects such as a wah-wah or pitchshifter much more comfortable.
If you are a DJ, it can replace a knob or slider which you will be able to control with your foot, thus freeing your hands.
A great tool for setting the tempo and syncing.
EX3 provides instant plug-and-play connectivity.
Power it from your computer via the USB port or via a standard USB adapter*. No batteries are required.
Get the most out of your equipment by not having to use your hands.
EX3 is more versatile than most expression pedals.
In addition, it has a beautiful, durable, aluminium design.
