Livid Instruments is proud to announce Ohm, their latest hardware instrument. Ohm is a real-time MIDI control surface designed to give digital audio and video performers an innovative interface for performance and presentation.
Livid custom manufactures their controllers with the same techniques used in traditional instrument building. The Ohm is designed for performance and features a bank of thirty-six buttons centrally located over a DJ style cross fader, eight faders with button triggers, ten rotary knobs, twelve function buttons, and a BPM tap button. Ohm offers easy USB connectivity and also has a standard MIDI out connector for both digital and analog MIDI integration. All of the controls on the instrument are fully LED backlight for performance.
Ohm includes a free, fully functional copy of the all-new Livid Union 2.5 VJ software, completely integrated to match the controls of the instrument. Ohm also comes with demo versions of audio software titles Ableton Live, and FLStudio for complete audio and video performance. Ohm also makes an ideal companion for hardware such as analog synthesizers, video mixers, DJ software, lighting equipment, and other musical instruments.
The Ohm is available in two models, handcrafted mahogany and rugged rack-mount metal. The wood model is ideal as a portable instrument and studio controller, while the metal model provides a convenient 5u rack-mount design for easy rack integration. The Ohm can purchase it directly from lividinstruments.com for an introductory price of $790.
