Oslo, Norway (October 30th, 2016) - Aalberg Audio recently launched their Kickstarter campaign for the MOON switcher. The MOON can control any MIDI supported equipment, as well as effects pedals and guitar amplifiers, giving the musician instant wireless control.
To control the MOON, the musician can either use the Aalberg AERO remote controller – a small, lightweight device that offers mobility and can easily be positioned wherever it suits the musician – or the free Aalberg REMOTE App; an app for tablets and smart phones.

In total, the MOON provides four different modes: MIDI control, ABY switching, FX-looping and footswitch functionality. Using the AERO or the REMOTE app, up to eight MOONs can be controlled simultaneously. This combination gives the possibility of controlling MIDI equipment, routing signals, adjusting effects parameters and switching amplifier channels with the single press of a button.
With the AERO always within hands reach, a guitarist could control their entire rig instantly. A rig that could consist of anything from Ableton Live and a Kemper Profiler, to Strymon stompboxes and Marshall amps. All within the AERO’s wireless range of 100 feet (30 meters).
The REMOTE app provides an overview of all connected devices, as well as multi-touch parameter control and infinite storage of presets. This could be useful e.g. for a sound engineer that needs remote access to the audio equipment on stage during a performance.
“Using the same generation of Bluetooth technology as the iPhone 7, our system has no dropouts or latency, 30 hours of use on one charge, a range of 100 feet, and with one click you can change your whole sound,” says Aleksander Torstensen, CEO of Aalberg Audio. “Previously you would have needed some very advanced and expensive gear to achieve this.”
“Now the musician has complete freedom. They have control and flexibility that brings new possibilities to how a song is played. It also enhances instruments in new ways not previously possible.”
