Introducing Base: a new foundation for all your creative productions. Combining the technology of drum machines and touch screens, Base delivers a sleek new pressure-sensitive surface that doubles up the MPC's fabled 16 pads and opens up your hands to freely mix. With 32 pressure-sensitive pads, nine touch sliders, eight touch-sensitive buttons, and eight momentary buttons there's plenty of controls to play and control your set.
Illuminated throughout with RGB lights and a simple character display, Base provides plenty of novel ways to give you feedback for playing drums, synths, loops, step sequencing, changing presets, and even navigating your set. Customize all the settings and internal presets using the Base Editor web application to best fit your workflow with your favorite DAW, VST, plugin, or application.
The touch faders on Base offer a lot more than your traditional analog fader. The LED feedback keeps you updated with the current value, and can adapt when you dynamically reassign the faders to your software. But these faders can also deliver a note and velocity when you touch them, potentially acting as a switch for instantly engaging effects, or playing a sound when you touch the fader. And because you can access any value at any time, you can instantly jump to new values as well as make smooth, continuous changes.
When we set out to make our first pressure-sensitive controller, we wanted to give musicians more than just a way to make a drum louder. Pressure is the original modulator, whether it's from breathing through a saxophone or a feathery touch on a violin string.
With 32 pressure sensitive pads, Base breaks open new possibilities for playing drums and synths, and new capabilities for squeezing new sounds from your existing gear. Set up a bass synth next to the drum pads so you can access more of your production at once. Turn off the notes on some pads, and use the CC values from "aftertouch" for modulating filters and effects. Setup four mini-kits at fixed velocities to give you the exact sound you need for your production. Because the Base is completely editable, you can reconfigure it for new creative possibilities.
With no moving parts, the Base puts the "solid" in solid state. An all-aluminum body and extruded aluminum frame makes it extra sturdy and exceptionally sleek. A rubber-coated bezel adds strength and comfort to the faceplate. No sliders to bend, no knobs to catch: at under an inch thick and a face that's probably smaller than your laptop, Base goes in and out of your bag from studio to show.
There’s no need to reinvent the wheel: with Base, we've made a better cockpit. With Base, you can focus on playing and tweaking with just enough controls to fill your hands and just enough options to fill your head. And because it's a Livid controller, we'll be coming out with new interesting templates, patches, apps, and videos that will help you learn new ways of freeing your Base.
No matter what application you are using it for, Base is totally configurable to suit your needs. Load up the easy-to-use web-based editor in a browser to edit all of the controls on the Base. Choose different fader display modes (walk, fill, eq, and spread), change the velocity sensitivity of the pads, switch buttons from momentary to toggle, customize the colors, and of course, edit the MIDI output. Save settings to the internal memory banks and instantly recall and display the presets with a press of a button.
