In collaboration with electronic music pioneer and creator of the m_nus label Richie Hawtin, the CNTRL:R comes out of years of experience playing and performing live and the evolution of music production controller technology. Along with the design team at Livid and the artists at m_nus records, they created a controller to meet the demanding needs of the performing artist. After a brief meeting in 2009, Richie and Livid started brainstorming on an all around portable, yet powerful device for creating, producing, and performing electronic music. The body is constructed from light weight aluminum and is small enough to fit in a carry-on bag with only a single USB cable needed to perform. All of the essential controls along with the expansion jacks give you everything you need for even the most demanding situations.
CNTRL:R uses only the highest quality fader, encoders, knobs, and pads. The colorful RGB backlit buttons provide endless possibilities for feedback and allow you to create your own intuitive mappings. Standard MIDI jacks let you integrate it with other analog and digital gear,as well as controlling additional computers. Expansion jacks allow you to connect additional devices such as foot controlled expression pedals, XPC expansion controllers, sensors, accelerometers, and other analog controls. Our Builder series BYOB boards can also be easily integrated for a totally customized and modular setup.
Constructed from black aluminum with a extremely durable protective coating, CNTRL:R was designed for expressive tactile control. Every detail was taken into consideration when designing the controller, from the soft touch rubberized knobs to the responsive keypads. Each instrument is completely home grown and carefully hand crafted in our Austin, Texas facility.
Adaptable CNTRL:R is an adaptable controller that can be used with any software that supports MIDI. The multicolor LEDs and buttons have two way communication that allow it to talk to the software, and the software to control the LEDs. A growing library of template and scripts are available for Ableton Live, and Native Instruments’ Traktor. CNTRL:R is completely reprogrammable and can be edited using the CNTRL:R editor on Mac and Windows.
CNTRL:R was specifically designed to fit into a backpack for a completely portable setup. With a size of 14.25 L X 9.75 W x 1.75 H it’s small enough to fit in a carry-on case with the rest of your gear.
CNTRL:R is designed to be a complete performance device. The quality of the controls, the size, and the adaptability make it the ultimate instrument for the modern electronic musician.
