Dubspot and Livid Partner on New MIDI Mixer
- Words: Glenn Jackson
NYC-based production school Dubspot and Austin-based controller designer Livid Instruments have combined their varying expertise to yield a new MIDI mixer, called DS1. The new unit is billed as a "portable solution for computer-based mixing, production, and performance," the features of which include nine high-quality, 60mm faders, 44 rotary knobs with single-color backlighting, 25 RGB buttons, and one push encoder. The DS1 is said to have been designed with Dubspot's classrooms in mind—as the school's founder and CEO puts it, "We could never find a single complementary controller on the market to meet our functionality and durability needs, so we decided to simply build one ourselves."
While there is no exact release date set for the DS1 at the moment, those interested can find more info on the forthcoming MIDI mixer and sign up for email updates here.
