Nektar Technology Pacer MIDI Footswitch Controller

Nektar Technology has introduced the Pacer, a MIDI footswitch controller that comes preconfigured for the most popular DAWs and MIDI guitar products. It also offers standard amp switching.

“The sturdy metal case features 10 programmable footswitch controls with RGB LEDs and an additional Preset footswitch for recalling presets and navigation,” Nektar writes. “Additionally, Pacer allows the connection of 2 expression pedals and up to 4 external foot switches. Even non-MIDI amps can be integrated into setups by using the 4 relays to switch channels or effects. Due to dedicated presets and icons for transport and track control as well as eg. MIDI LED feedback for MIDI CC messages, the pedal’s handling is fast and transparent.”

The Nektar Technology Pacer will be shipping in April for $229.99.
