If you have a home or semi-professional studio and you don’t like that kind of gear that limits your possibilities by its own limitations you should take a look at Livid Instruments Ohm Limited Edition, an audio and video interface device that is specially designed for real-time tasks but can be also used as a mixer, synth, DJ gear or even as a lighting controller.
The specifications of the Livid Instruments Ohm Limited Edition are backlit controls (with on/off switch), 36 pad buttons, 9 function buttons, 8 slider and trigger/mute buttons, 8 high-quality faders, DJ crossfader, 10 rotary dials, MIDI and USB (only compatible with Windows and Mac) connections, 12V DC input (to use with the included adapter) and works with any MIDI-learn compatible software. The package includes Livid Union 2.5 VJ Software and some demos (Ableton Live, FL Studio and AMG One).
This device is available in 2 versions color (natural, simply red, basic black, night blue and dark green) mahogany and rack-mountable metal formats, but the limited edition colors (all but natural) will add $100 to the final price. The Livid Instruments Ohm Limited Edition is now available and its price is $790.
