    So I have a device that switches channels via MIDI (and only that way), but I find cumbersome to have a full sized MIDI controller in my studio around just for that. My audio interface doesn't have a MIDI in, so I was wondering if there is some sort of "mini" device just to browse MIDI presets. The preamp has 128 MIDI presets stored which I can't access without my ENGL Z12 (which is freaking big).

    Any ideas for a compact and clever solution to this issue?

    That looks about perfect. Shame it costs more than the device it would be controlling, though :lol:

    I'll keep an eye to see if I can find one used :yesway:

    What about the Tech 21 Midi Mouse or some of the smaller Disaster Area controllers like the Midi Baby or DMC series?

    Those look awesome and totally in the ballpark of what I'm looking for (and willing to spend). Thanks! :woot:

    Keep em going, guys! I'm a total newbie about these things! :erk:
