Who said patch bays were just for analog gear? … well someone at some point did, I think. Mike’s styling MIDI controller sports a re-reoutable panel full pots and photocells fed through a MidiTron board –

The controls on the instrument include 20 assignable potentiometers (knobs), 5 assignable photocells (at varying resistance), and a patch-bay allowing the user to decide which knobs or photocells are linked to which pin outs on the MidiTron (you can basically choose which knob (or light sensor) controls what function in your software, allowing you to change control over software parameters physically, without going into code.

A fresh approach to popular software controller interfaces and aesthetics. – MIDI controller
