The No.1 Website for Pro Audio


CME’s MIDI controller Bitstream3X is the result of co-operation between CME and Wave Idea. The suffix ‘3X’ stands for 3 Axis because the Bitstream offers full control over the 3 Axes – X, Y and Z. A joystick gives you 2 axes control (X and Y) while a ribbon controller is used for the Z axis.
