If you're a DJ, you'll want to pay attention to this one. umidi has started a Kickstarter for their new custom DJ controller, which they're calling the "world's first" — probably because they let you design it to your exact needs and will ship to anywhere in the world. Promising unmatched customization, you can choose up to 36 components on the 6x6 grid, which includes knobs, faders, encoders, jog wheels, and aluminum push buttons. You can even choose an image to be laser etched on the background!
There are nine different colors available for the components, allowing you to create whatever scheme you want. There's even nine light pattern styles, each one unique. With 288 RGB LEDs, umidi promises that you can do whatever you want with their control, including visualize your mixing and create custom start-up sequences. You can even dictate what the lighting shapes around the components are — if you like dashes, maybe little dots or full blocks of color, go for it!
