    No module with a crossfader?

  • Anonymous

    cute toy. i wonder what the brain alone would cost?? DIY a custom mixing desk lol

    It could be worth the money but there are missing some things
    - A module with 4 faders, and a crossfader (add a 4×4 potentiometers module and you have a dj mixer)
    - A module with a x/y touchpad and 4 buttons (the buttons mapped to changing x/y pad layer)
    - All modules with 
    rotary potentiometers should have an option on the website (like DJTT have with coloring your midifighter) to replace individual potentiometers with encoders. This is mainly for Ableton Live devices!
    - A module with joysticks
    - A module with 2×2 mpc pads- All buttons should have at least 3 leds (like the launchpad) for the Ableton user.
    - an Ableton Live effect module: 8 encoders, on/off, next/previous device, next/previous track, a save button, a button to change to the second layer and a button to map layer 1 or 2 to the selected device
    What also misses (only for people who do not want, or do not need to buy the livid racks) is a module with a usb port and midi in + out. There should be a big browsing encoder and minimal 4 buttons

    i’m working my ideas out in powerpoint (sorry, i don’t have better :D) and i will post it here in a few days:

    Just the idea of the Hardware Dev Kit has given me a hard-on. I’ve already designed about 60 modules. Livid are going to overwhelmed…

  • RockingClub

    Missing a module with more than one row of (4) endless encoders…

  • 11kyle Mac

    It’s a good idea in my opinion, Livid has the right idea. Maybe once there is more variety in the modules I’ll consider it. I’ve always like the whole idea of modular setups like this, like modular synths etc. so good idea Livid!

  • Deecodameeko

    all I can say is YES!

  • Brian Bagshaw

    For that price, DIY is still king

  • Woody Aki

    What, no crossfade? :(

    Good idea. However, is it me, or does the “polish” in the engineering look like it is lacking in many ways? I mean, elongated holes in a faceplate are an engineering no-no. The gaps between buttons and faceplate are terribly uneven and ugly. The “mother board” sits slanted at the bottom (at least in the video). Sorry Livid, but you need to get more Steve Jobs like.;)

    I guess Bill Gates will sale his os for this 70 look computer #wtf

    For 950,  I can get 2 launchpads, 2 Kontrol x1, 1 Kontrol k1, usb hub, and probably still have room for something else.  Furturistic and funkier lights.

    • Djmarcdarwin

       I agree but most laptops only have 3 USB ports (4 if you are lucky). USB hubs are messy to use…

  • Campark43

    Seriously, touchscreen control module. Unless u guys r going for the 1980′s geek look which seems to sadly b popular these days.

  • Campark43

    How about a couple joysticks and u can play mortal combat.

      Mortal Kombat*

    I agree with the journalist – I’m disappointed with the variety of modules advertised. Love the idea of modular MIDI setup, but the lack of variety leaves much wanting (MPC pads especially). Hell, Behringer has a better conglomerate of modular MIDI controllers coming, out in my opinion.

      I suppose we’ll have to wait and see if Livid develops a greater variety of modules in the months to come.  I’m sure they will if demand is high enough.  They should have some sort of suggestion box type deal (e-mail account or something) where we can suggest what we’d like to see in new modules.

    yeah i saw this a few days ago,i thought it was interesting but i am very displeased with the design and quality,if dj tech tools teamed up with livid and recreated this product with amazing features than i would absolutely buy it.

    • Rbx

       At the end of the video they did say that there is a hardware development kit (HDK) for third party companies to build onto the system, perhaps that means a DJTT series in the rack sometime in the future…

    JUST TAKE MY MONEY NOW LIVID!!!!

  • Feroxz

    I want a X/Y Touchpad module!

    Great concept!

  • reminixe

    Can you buy without the racks?  if not, that is a complete dealbreaker.

    • awkwerd

      It’s stated in the video and in the aritcle that you can buy just the modules. “~$100 for most of the standalone modules” and you can the use them in your own racks. But I’m pretty sure they are just rack mounts, not small useable modules.

      • reminixe

        i didnt watch the video, but the text said they sold cases in bundles or by themselves, not the modules themselves.  haha, i guess i shoulda realized what they meant :P

  • Rutger Willems

    for me it would be equal to 1,5 midifighter :P
