Jomox Alpha Base..?

Can anyone confirm that the Alpha Base will send MIDI CC to a DAW? What I want to do is sequence the Alpha Base with Logic Pro X then tweak sounds by recording the Alpha Base’s knob movements. Seems that this should be fairly easy to to but I want to confirm with a...

Product Description

The Alpha Base is Jomox' 2017 drum machine. It takes improved circuits and sequencer from the previous drum machines and combines it with an MBrane synthesizer voice. Kick Drum The center instrument still is the analog kick drum which has gotten a facelifting again. The legendary punch and assertiveness of all Jomox kicks is convincingly continued. LFO, pitch envelope, metallic noise and gate time are famous features that may not and do not miss out. MBrane As a second analog instrument, we have put in a complete MBrane voice. It covers a gigantic spectrum of analog snare drums, percussions, cow bells, claves, glasses, toms, bass drums etc. etc. It uses the technology of the Mod.Brane11. Of course, this instrument has 2 own LFOS, pitch envelopes and metallic noise as well. Samples+Filter The succeeding six instruments are built hybridly and consist of samples that are run through real analog filters and VCAs. Each analog sample channel has an own metallic noise that alternatively can be used as a signal source or being mixed to the sample. With metallic noise only, it becomes a pure analog instrument again. Four channels make use of a multimode filter that is capable of resonance - again they can be used as true analog instruments with the self-oscillating filter as the only sound source if you wish. Features 11 Instruments: Kick Drum, MBrane, Cl HiHat, Op HiHat, Clap, Rim Shot, Crash, Ride, X Sample 1, X Sample 2, FM Synth. Real analog Jomox kick drum. Real analog Jomox MBrane voice with 2 coupleable F-OSC for complex analog snare, percussion, bass and tom sounds ranging from 16Hz to 20kHz. 2 sample based instruments with analog VCA ADSR envelope and/or HH filter, optionally with metallic noise mixed as extra sound source. The HH filter is 2-pole, HP/LP/Res each separated parameters, peakable but not oscillating. 4 sample based instruments with analog VCA ADSR envelope and/or resonating multimode filter (LP, HP, BP) with ADSR envelope, optionally with metallic noise mixed as extra sound source. The multimode filter can be used as a signal generator in order to generate analog toms or sticks etc. 2 sample based instruments with external sampling input and pure digital playback. 1 FM synth with 4 operators and max. 6 voices for percussive sounds. Effects delay, reverb with send per instrument, also insertable into analog signal path on CH, OH, Clp, Rim, Ride.
