With the recent introduction of the Rocktron MIDI Raider, the switch is on! Known for the most widely used professional touring MIDI Controller, Rocktron has supported countless artists for decades. Iron Maiden has been a longtime user of the All Access controller, but the All Access has now been retired and replaced by the newer MIDI Raider. "We recently received one of the Iron Maiden All Access units here at the Rocktron office," said a Rocktron staff member. "You can tell it has been on a long journey!"
Iron Maiden has taken control now with new MIDI Raider controllers that they have added to their touring gear. Look for them on the road.
