A new way of mixing!

Palette - A Freeform Interface That Controls Any Software



Palette is a Kickstarter project, that is trying to reach
100,000$ to make there product in to reality.


PALETTE is the first FREEFORM hardware interface that offers hands-on control of your favorite software.


 Every Palette module comes with built-in RGB LEDs you can control.

How does it work?

Palette is designed with ease of use in mind. To create your own Palette:
1) Plug in the Power Module (included in every kit) to your computer's USB port
2) Connect as many modules as you'd like in any shape or size. The Palette Desktop App detects these modules on the fly as you add and rearrange them
3) Use the Desktop App to easily assign module inputs to software functions, using presets or mapping them individually.
It's simple. Now you have a professional tool that is personalized, will increase your productivity and it even looks great.

What makes Palette so different?

Feature 1: Modularity and Customization
You are unique. Create an interface that fits your workflow and style. An expanding lineup of modules gives you plenty of input options as your needs grow.
DJs and Music Producers
  • MIDI mode lets you use your favourite mixing software
  • Start small and add more modules as you progress, instead of always buying and selling your old gear
  • Ever wanted just a few more sliders or dials? Add Palette to compliment your current equipment
  • LED halo light for status and visualizations in the dark

My dj-setup

What is a dj-setup?














Way back a dj-setup was built on  
2 Vinyl Record players, 1 mixer and 2 speakers (basically), 
but now everything is pretty much done digitally. 
(Meaning that you have a controlling system that
tells a computer what to do.)


What hardwear are you using?

I'm rocking two cdj 350(silver), one djm 250(silver)
and I'm connecting them to my asus ultrabook.
And for sound I've got a pair of nEar 05 by ESI speakers,
and my headphones are called akg k518dj.

What sofwear are you using?

Traktor is my softwear of choice, iv tried most
of the softwear on the market, how ever Traktor
is one of the only once that supports my rig.

Your perfect controller

``You design, we build. Your perfect controller.´´


is one of the slogans that Umidi a dj-tech startup uses. 
The controller is a close match to Dj Techtools "Midifighter", 
So what's different about the Umidi
 
Well first off it's highly customizable, with alot more fetures then themidifighter
you could also argue that the Umidi is better looking but that is highly personal. 
 
 

So how much dose they both cost? 

 
Well since the midifighter is the only one out on the market at the moment, 
and taken in count that the midifigher also is customizable,  
the absolutely cheapest version is priced at $175.00. 
And when the Umidi is released the price will be $1050 incl. international shipping.
