Guido the developer of the VB3 II and other wonderful VSTs has been working on a new project and I am holding in my hands the result.

I am so honored to be able to test the new D9X Drawbar MIDI controller. This project is based on the open source Arduino platform and can be customized in many ways if the end user wishes. Here is the official project on Github: https://github.com/ZioGuido/GMLAB_D9X

As many of you are using different virtual  tonewheel organs I can tell you this makes playing them a very satisfying experience. There is nothing that can replace reaching out and adjusting physical drawbars and controls in my opinion. Not only can it be used to control organs you can use it in virtually any situation where you need a hands on control and your virtual instrument supports MIDI controller mapping.

It is available now from the My Rig Shop here http://www.myrigshop.com/ as a kit ($239) or   pre-assembled ($329). 

Here is a hands on first look demo:

The official G.M. Lab website is now online: http://www.gmlab.it/

This will be the home of not only the Drawbar MIDI controller projects but some other interesting MIDI hardware devices as well.
One that I find interesting is the MJU which is a customizable MIDI event filter, pedal/switch interface you can customize to fulfill many interesting control possibilities.
