It’s the return of the PatchMate…..but better!! Rocktron fans hammered us for years to bring back the PatchMate, which enjoyed a well-earned reputation as possibly the best device ever used to help control rigs and assorted gear. We’ve updated the PatchMate with exciting new features, and proudly release the new PatchMate Loop 8!

The PatchMate Loop 8 is easy to set up and program with real time user controls. Program the unit from the front panel using the lighted buttons. Recall presets using MIDI program changes. Control any loop in real time using MIDI Continuous Controllers.
The PatchMate Loop 8 supports intelligent Latching and Momentary switch sensing which allows the user to use any Midi Continuous Controller number without any other programming effort!.
The PatchMate Loop 8 has buffered Active and Passive inputs, with Passive/Active and Active outputs on the back of the unit. The PatchMate Loop 8 may be set to any MIDI channel and is programmable from the front panel. It may also be configured for use on any of the 16 banks of controllers via the front panel switches and has MIDI In/Out/Thru and is an ideal addition to any rack setup.
