Despite the level of customization and personalization a DJ needs to perform, most DJ mixers and interfaces typically come ready-made and are sold ‘as is.’ Capitalizing on this gap in the market, umidi is a custom DJ controller that provides a visual platform for mixing music, complete with music-driven lighting, button effects, and color-changing knobs.
DJs can visit the soon-to-be website so they can design a personal device and customize it to their liking. This would include unique ways of organizing how and where it lights up in addition to where the knobs, faders,pads, and wheels are placed. Customers will also have the option of etching images and text into the face plate. Check the promotional video below to see the gadget in action, and see more images of the custom device.
According to designboom, Umidi’s Kickstarter is slotted to launch in December and will be sold for around $1050 including shipping.
