Following on from the success of the G2M, the B2M brings affordable and reliable MIDI capability to bass guitar. With ultra-low-latency, and unmatched affordability, the B2M breaks new ground in MIDI performance for bass players -- it will even track a low B (which is only 30Hz)!
The B2M™ is a simple-to-use, highly effective, bass-to-MIDI converter. It is “Universal” because it doesn’t need a special pickup mounted on your bass guitar, but instead simply connects to your instrument like any other effects pedal or tuner.
It is a true plug-and-play solution for monophonic MIDI bass guitar designed to give accurate triggering with very low latency. It can be used to sequence bass lines and add an edge to your live performances — it opens up many creative possibilities.
No modifications are required to your bass guitar; no special pickups to install; and nothing needs to be “stuck” onto your instrument. It works with all electric bass guitars without any setup or tweaking.
The B2M™ universally appeals to all bassists from novices to seasoned professionals. Keenly priced to fit any budget, with the robust reliable performance expected by the finest players.
Incredibly simple to use:
1. Plug your bass guitar into BASS to power-up the B2M™
2. Enable CHROMATIC if you don’t want to send pitch-bend information
3. Connect your MIDI device (or computer) to the MIDI OUT
4. Play notes on your bass and MIDI will be sent directly to your midi device!
Powered from a single 9V battery, its long battery life combined with small size makes the B2M™ the ideal accessory to keep with your bass. Not only does it provide fast and precise tuning, but it also gives you instant MIDI capability for any electric bass guitar!
Research has shown us that the most important aspect for pitch-to-MIDI conversion is reliable and reproducible triggering of notes. While low-latency is important, robust triggering is the key to usability — you can easily adapt to some latency, but you cannot adapt to random, spurious notes.
By virtue of the unique, inherently robust technology used in the B2M™ you will be able to reliably generate accurate MIDI quickly and easily. Notes are generated exactly as played, and the nuances of your performance are captured with fast, accurate pitch-bend data. What’s more, you also get very low latency!
The built-in tuner uses our PULSAR™ tuning technology where the power LED doubles as a tuning indicator. This innovative tuner gives you a fast and accurate way to tune your bass guitar.
Featuring a high-impedance input circuit, the B2M™ won't sap your tone when using it "in-line" before your amp, or other effects pedals. You can then easily combine MIDI sounds with your normal bass sound for some exciting musical possibilities.
