The SoundForce SFC-5 is a class-compliant boutique USB MIDI controller dedicated to the U-he Repro-5 and the Arturia Prophet V. The 2020 V2 model offers fantastic upgrades compared to the original V1 model: 100% sheet metal case, wobble-free metal shaft pots and walnut side panels.
With 32 rotary pots and 28 switches, you can finally control your virtual instrument in an instinctive and fun way. Create better synth sounds easier and improve your overall experience. A couple of extra “user” controls let you control for instance your external FX plugins. The controller sends out standard MIDI cc messages and can be used with any software that is MIDI-mappable. A web-based control panel app allows the user to change the cc messages number for each control and save or load different configurations.
The enclosure is made of 100% sheet metal and is manufactured by Grawart in Poland (http://www.grawart.pl). The case is made of bent steel and powder coated in black. The front panel is aluminium, also powder coated and screen printed with scratch-proof white ink. Walnut wood side panels of 8mm thickness are fitted to both sides of the controller. The sides are made in Amsterdam by Rob Gould (http://www.gouldcaseworks.nl/).
The SFC-5 V2 is a boutique-manufactured product assembled in small quantities in the Netherlands. A lot of operations are still performed by hand and automation is used when possible to improve quality and processes.
