The DMC-3XL Gen2 is the next generation compact MIDI controller from Disaster Area.
The Gen2 pedals all feature advanced USB MIDI connectivity in addition to their 5-pin standard MIDI ports. This allows them to not only control your MIDI pedals but also to interface with your DAW or other MIDI software, iPad, and more.
NEW! The DMC-3XL Gen2 now ships with our advanced Firmware v2.01!
NEW! The DMC-3XL Gen2 is now available with our gHOST Output, enabling it to control one USB MIDI device such as the Zoom G3, G5, B3, MS-50G, MS-60B, MS-70CDR. The gHOST Output can power small USB devices over the USB cable, but the DMC will require up to 500mA of supply current in order to do so.
One MIDI cable is required for each MIDI device you wish to control. No MIDI cables are included, but they are available separately from our online store.
The DMC-3XL Gen2 is an ideal companion for your pedalboard MIDI devices, combining intuitive program navigation, looper control, and user-definable presets into one small package.
The user can determine which modes are enabled, so only the controls you need will be used.
Scrolling Modes A, B, and C – program up + down for a single MIDI device, including bypass and fast program scrolling
Looper Modes 1, 2, and 3 – looper transport (play / record / stop,) looper FX (half-speed and reverse,) and looper level (volume fade / swell.)
Preset Mode – store up to 24 user presets, combining different patches on all of your devices.
The DMC-3XL Gen2 also features a comprehensive Setup Mode allowing the user to determine the assignment of the expression input or roller, which modes are enabled, and the types of MIDI devices that are connected.
Full MIDI Control Support for the following devices:
Strymon: Timeline, Mobius, BigSky
Eventide: H9, Space, Timefactor, Modfactor, Pitchfactor
Line 6: M5, M9 (also supports M13 but not all 48 scenes are available.)
Chase Bliss: Warped Vinyl, Wombtone
General MIDI: Supports most MIDI devices, sends program changes 0-127 and MIDI CC for tap tempo, expression, and performance switch controls.
The rear-panel expression pedal input is able to control expression, looper volume level, activate a favorite preset or the infinite repeat / freeze, or send tap tempo. An optional side roller is available, which may be used to control expression or looper volume level. The side roller defeats the rear panel jack if used. The expression input may be assigned to control any of the connected MIDI devices.
The expression input may also function as a MIDI output. Use a standard TRS cable to connect to the Empress Phaser or Tremolo2, or a reverse-polarity cable to connect to the Chase Bliss Warped Vinyl or Wombtone. The Disaster Area TRS to MIDI Adaptor Cable also allows the expression input to function as a standard 5-pin MIDI output.
