umidi is the world’s first custom & visual DJ controller. It gives DJ’s a way to build their perfect midi controller by offering unparalleled choice in both hardware and software.
￼Using umidi’s website, design your own DJ controller however you want. Your design is then built and shipped it to you anywhere in the world. Customisation ￼includes different components, many colors choices, lighting shapes and even ￼laser etching a custom image onto the face plate.
￼The umidi also introduces a new visual element to DJ controllers. At the heart of ￼umidi lie 288 RGB LED’s that can be controlled to do whatever you want. This ￼allows for music driven lighting, button effects, visualizing mixing, millions of ￼colors and more. You can even create your own lighting effects. This is easily ￼done using the umidi editor.
￼The umidi can have the up to 36 components, which include:
- ￼Jog Wheels
- ￼Aluminum Push Buttons
- ￼Drum Pads
- ￼Silicon Buttons
- ￼& more coming soon
￼Each component comes in nine different colors varieties. Select from green, blue, ￼red, yellow, orange, pink, purple, white & black.
￼Using umidi’s website umidi.co, you can use the design interface to drag and ￼drop what components you want, select colors and upload your own image to ￼build your perfect controller. This means you will have a one of kind controller, ￼specifically designed to your needs.
￼umidi’s enclosure is milled from a single piece of high grade aluminium, is only 1 ￼inch (2.5cms) thick and weighs less than 3lbs pounds (1.4kgs). You can chose ￼the anodized color of either black, white, blue, yellow, pink, purple, red, orange ￼and green.
￼umidi works with all midi DJ software including Traktor, Live, Scratch Live, ￼Virtual DJ and more. It’s compatible with Mac OS X, Windows & Linux (plug & ￼play, no drivers necessary). It uses a 32bit ARM 120Mhz for low latency ￼optimization.
umidi will be available on kickstarter.com in December of this year starting at an introductory price of $1050 including shipping and handling to anywhere in the world.
