CNTRL:R is an innovative, new MIDI control service from Livid Instruments, designed and field tested for over a year with electronic music pioneer Richie Hawtin and other artists on his Minus record label.
CNTRL:R comes out of years of experience, playing and performing live and is designed for next generation DJ and producer. CNTRL:R is class complaint MIDI device that supports a wide range of software digital audio work stations.
Create rhythms, sequence and perform drums, launch clips, mix tracks and have complete control over your performance with CNTR:R’s advanced set of features and controls. Its sophisticated Max 4 Live step sequencer comes with CNTR:R and was designed and developed by Richie Hawtin and Livid, creating and performing beats live or in the studio.
With scripts available for Ableton Live and Native Instruments Traktor, the CNTRL:R meets the needs of anyone looking to create and perform electronic music. The body is constructed form light weight aluminum and small enough to fit in a carry-on bag with only a single USB cable needed to power it up and perform. Every detail was taken into consideration when designing the CNTRL:R – from the soft-touch rubberized knobs, to the responsive keypads – CNTRL:R uses only the highest quality faders, push button encoders and knobs.
The colorful RGB backlit buttons provide endless possibilities for a feedback and allow you to create your own intuitive mappings. Expansion jacks allow you to connect additional devices such as foot controlled expression pedals, XPC, do-it-yourself expression controllers, sensors, accelerometers and other analog devices. Standard MIDI in and out jacks allow you to easily integrate it into your existing set up.
