Disaster Area Designs MIDI Baby

Notify me when this product is available:

MIDI Baby is perhaps the smallest fully-programmable MIDI controller ever made.

It features one footswitch, one multi-color LED, and a lot of personality!

Connect MIDI Baby to your computer using the supplied USB cable, then launch our intuitive web configuration tool. You can then configure MIDI Baby to send a wide variety of useful MIDI messages, configure its inputs and outputs, and even change the LED colors for each function.

Send program changes, continuous controller messages, MIDI notes, and more. Special “meta” commands allow you to change how the MIDI Baby works on the fly, so you can invert or re-order messages. Finally, a built-in MIDI clock option allows you to send clock to your connected MIDI devices.

Compatible with practically every MIDI device ever made. Programmable to meet your needs. And did we mention it’s tiny?

Grab the gHOST Adapter option if you’d like to interface your MIDI Baby with USB-MIDI devices like Zoom MultiStomps or the Source Audio C4 Synth.


Our web-based editor application makes configuring your MIDI Baby easy! Configure your hardware options in Global Settings, assign the messages for each foot switch or expression pedal, save and go. Want to switch between multiple configurations for different rigs or pedalboard setups? Use the Import / Export from File option to create a library of configurations for instant access.

If you have a specific MIDI requirement and don’t see it listed, feel free to contact us and ask about it! We may be able to add some support for your special settings.
