miniMIDI JOYstick  Logo

A few years ago, with expert help from London MIDI guru Tim Jacobs, I released the Mini PitchBender: a small 4-way joystick unit intended to add accurate pitch bending to the new Lekholm DM48 MIDI harmonica. It proved popular among DM48 owners, and all the initial batch sold out. In response to demand, in 2021 I partnered with Professor John Shirley of Massachusetts University Lowell to launch a new product called the miniMIDI-JOYstick (Patent Pending). Outwardly it looks similar to the original Mini PitchBender, but its capabilities go way beyond mere pitch-bending alone. It is now a user-programmable MIDI controller with 16 Presets - including pitch-bending, modulation, and many other kinds of expression. It can be fitted on virtually ANY musical instrument, whether acoustic or MIDI. That includes brass and woodwind instruments, bowed and plucked string instruments, percussion instruments, all kinds of harmonicas and accordions - and even vocal microphones! As long as it’s plugged into a MIDI-capable interface of some kind (eg. an iPhone), a huge array of expression can be added to enhance any audio or MIDI signal.
