Merry Christmas! 

With the end of the year upon us and the season for gift-giving just around the corner, we've decided to run not one, but TWO giveaways! 

Review Giveaway

To enter, you must be the owner a PIRATE MIDI product, and submit a legitimate review for your products to the relevant product pages using the "Write a review" button shown in the screenshot below. 

There are no multiple entries for this draw. If you review two or more products, you will still receive one entry in the random draw.

There are no requirements on the content of the review, but please note that the review should be made as a genuine entry to be helpful for future customers. 

Survey Giveaway

This giveaway is open to anyone - you don't need to own a PIRATE MIDI device. It's a 10-15 minute survey with questions about our service, devices, and asking for feedback and suggestions for updates, development etc.

There are only two or three mandatory questions in the survey, all the others are optional. Email address is not mandatory in the survey, but it is mandatory for being entered into the prize draw. 

Entries will close on the 31st of January, and 3 winners will be drawn. "Donkey-votes" (i.e. submissions with nonsensical answers only) will be disqualified from entry.

New Products! CLiCK & uLoop

Posted by Simon Glover on

Let's give a warm welcome to the newest, skinniest kids on the block!

Both 22mm thin, both able to be used as USB MIDI interfaces, and both able to be controlled by just connecting a triple Aux switch - no MIDI actually required! 

The CLiCK is a relay interface for switching anything - amp channels, aux jacks, external switches etc. It will fit just about anywhere and with two relays (one for the tip, and one for the ring) you can control two TS jacks, or one TRS jack. Super cool! 

µLoop is different. It's an audio product - our first released at PIRATE MIDI, but not the first that we've ever built. It's a MIDI-controlled relay bypass looper with 2 stereo or 4 mono channels and it's the smallest thing available by a long way. To be able to fit 4 mono bypass channels under a Pedaltrain Nano is insane. But here we are anyway! 

They're both open for preorder now, and they will ship in December/January - just a couple of months. 

Bundle 2 and save $20.

Australian retailers will also be getting stock when they're built. 

Thanks for all the support. It's awesome to make devices you need and want to use.
