RJM Music Technology Releases the MasterMind MIDI Controller

MIDI Foot Controller Designed for Touring Pros

Vista, CA (August 22, 2008) -  There''s a new foot controller solution on the market -- here''s the scoop, direct from RJM Music Technology:

Do guitarists need a new foot controller solution? RJM Music Technology is betting on it.

RJM Music Technology has just introduced the MasterMind, a new MIDI foot controller promoted as the ideal controller for touring guitarists - durable and powerful yet compact enough to be carried in a gig bag or inside a rack.


“This really fills a hole in the market,” says Ron Menelli, President and Chief Engineer of RJM Music Technology. “Until now hasn’t been a truly professional quality MIDI controller of this size.”

We’re changing the minds of a lot of MIDI-phobes,” says John Pegler, VP of Sales. “This system (the foot controller as well as the RG-16 or Amp Gizmo) is a complete solution and it is so incredibly easy to use."

"I was skeptical at first," says rig-builder Chris Kamp. "It''s comfortable to use and the buttons are spaced far enough apart that I’m not hitting more than one at a time. The thing is built like a tank!"

RJM Music Technology is confident that the MasterMind will appeal to both amateurs and professionals. It requires virtually no setup or configuration for simple rigs, yet has many configuration options available if the user needs to control a large, complex rig.

Some other noteworthy features are phantom power support and the ability to connect multiple MasterMinds and have them synchronized together.

The MasterMind is now available from RJM Music dealers worldwide.

King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard started out as a “joke” band. As guitarist/songwriter Joey Walker says with a grin, “Now the joke’s on us.”

With their 26th release, Flight b741, the prog-rockers make it hard but highly rewarding for fans to keep up. Behind that drive lies a wealth of joy, camaraderie, and unwavering commitment to their art.

There’s a dangerous, pernicious myth, seemingly spread in perpetuity among fledgling artists and music fans alike, that when you’re a musician, inspiration—and therefore productivity—comes naturally. Making art is the opposite of work, and, conversely, we know what happens to Jack when there’s all work and no play. But what happens when the dimensions of work and play fuse together like time and space? What happens to Jack then? Well, behind such an instance of metaphysical reaction, undoubtedly, would be King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard.
