MIDI... But portable

Bridge4 Perspective Shot

The Bridge4 is a next-gen MIDI foot controller with no compromises. It packs all the power of the Bridge6, with only some space-saving connectors and two less footswitches. A lightning fast ARM processor and plenty of storage means ongoing firmware and feature updates = future-proof investment

Connect everything - your gear, apps, and plugins - and control them exactly the way you want with RGB colour feedback and an easy-to-read display.

Configure to your needs with our sleek, intuitive desktop app. Export your layout, and use our huge device library to save you hours of programming time.

COME OUT OF THE DARK AGE

Millions of Colours

The dual-zone RGB LEDs allow for powerful visual feedback.

Use colours for instant recognition: you might use blue for reverbs, red for amps, green for drive, or match the colours of your gear for a great aesthetic!

You can change colours on the fly with the onboard menu or select from millions on the desktop app. Each switch has a primary and secondary LED. Make them the same, or split them for even more detail.

OLED Graphic Display

No annoying backlight in sight here! Crisp, clean, and easy to read, our 3.2" OLED graphic display shows text labels and icons while allowing you to navigate menus and banks with ease.

Easily readable from standing height and completely customisable labels for each switch on each bank.

There is an in-built icon library for displaying secondary switch function - or just for a little extra flair!

ALL THE SAME CONNECTIONS

Harness the Power of Flexiports

One of the most exciting features of our Bridge controllers are the flexiports. 1/4" TRS jacks that can be used for:

Expression Pedal Input - up to 2 per flexiport
CV Input
Switch Input - up to 3 per flexiport
Switch Output
MIDI Output
Tap-Tempo Output
Device Link - Join two or more PIRATE MIDI devices to expand inputs and outputs.

Flexiports will take you through an automated setup process when you plug in a TRS cable, they'll also remember the configuration of the last device that was plugged in.

Switch inputs and outputs can be used to control your non-MIDI gear, like the Auxilliary Footswitch on a delay pedal, or channel switching on some amplifiers.

Seamless Power Switching

The Bridge4 can be powered by USB or by a standard guitar pedal 9v DC center-negative jack. Both can be plugged in at the same time, and you can remove one or the other without interrupting the Bridge6.

Jacks for a Lifetime

We use only the highest quality, rugged jacks that can stand up to constant use over years.

Throw away your MIDI CC lists - Our MIDI device library has over 374 effects pedals, synths, amplifiers, and apps totalling over 25,000 MIDI commands.

Can't find your gear on the list? Don't worry, many plugins, apps, and hardware have "soft-assigned" MIDI commands, which means there aren't defaults in our database, but it will still work with the Bridge4!

We love finding new devices that work with the Bridge4. If you notice something missing from our list that has default MIDI commands built-in, let us know so we can add it.

16 COMMANDS PER SWITCH?
TRY HUNDREDS!

100 Banks

4 switches, multiple expression pedals or external switches - all with their own different stack of MIDI commands in each bank. That's thousands of MIDI commands in just one pedal!

Windows & Mac OS App

A beautiful, intuitive config app is nearly ready for beta testing and will make adding features, updating firmware, and managing your MIDI messages super easy. Stay tuned for more info.

Stackable MIDI Commands

One press can send a burst of MIDI commands, allowing you to change all your gear with just one foot. Use press, release, double tpa, hold, hold release, toggle, or sequential modes to give each switch even more power and flexibility. 128+ Messages per switch!

Send or Receive any MIDI Command

Program Change (PC), Continuous Controller (CC), Note On/Off, SysEx, MIDI Clock (incl. Tap), Bank Up/Down, it does it all.

All features can be externally controlled - just connect the MIDI 'in' to the MIDI 'out' of your gear, and never get out of sync.

Bridge6 Pedal with All LEDs on and Screen showing "Bank 100"

NEVER LOSE TRACK OF TIME

2 Independent MIDI Clocks Onboard

There are two separate tap-tempo MIDI clocks at your disposal. LEDs flash with the tempo, and a long press (hold) will send start/stop clock messages. Icons and secondary LED colour help you keep track of whether your last message was start or stop.

Send Tap to non-MIDI Devices

Use the flexiports to send your tap-tempo to a non-MIDI device such as a delay pedal which has a tap switch input.

Automate and animate with LFOs

Create evolving soundscapes and textures with the powerful LFOs. These are really cool! Every switch in every bank has it's own dedicated LFO (Low Frequency Oscillator) which allows you to send any of the available stacked messages as a modulated output of MIDI data.

You can customise the waveform, trigger mode, define minimum and maximum value limits. Most excitingly, there are several global LFOs which can be used to create FM (Frequency Modulation) synthesis of the MIDI data streams. You won't believe what you can create.

MAKE IT YOUR OWN

Available for Pre-Order Now!

Dreams Becoming Reality

We've spent 12 months designing, prototyping, and working all our special MIDI magic to bring the Bridge4 to market with a flying head start.

There's truly no other controller like it available. In order to put a Bridge4 in your hands, we ran a super-successful Kickstarter campaign during December 2020. We're now hard at work to deliver the Bridge4 by October 10th, 2021.


The Bridge4 is now available for pre-order - we have a limited quantity available that will ship in October alongside our Kickstarter rewards. No extra waiting!
