While details are slim as of right now, Livid Instruments has posted pictures on Twitter of a brand new controller, named BASE, that they’re planning on announcing next week at NAMM 2013. Judging by the layout, it looks like this controller will be focused around an Ableton Live workflow. Pictures tell a thousand words, so check out the image below!

I really hope this has actual buttons with a tactile response unlike those of the QuNeo. At that point it just becomes a less configurable iPad.
definitely interested in this. I’ve been eyeballing some livid controllers for a bit now, trying to figure out if one will fit into my setup. but i’ve been down the touch controller road before with the Stanton SCS series and it was pretty sketchy. Hopefully Livid does it better.
Can you ask them when/where I can go check this out at NAMM?
Can you ask Livid when their mapping software is going to allow more than one MIDI message per controller? Are they ever going to jump on the “Smart Fader” train or are their users forever going to be using software remappers? Plus, how are they doing feedback through the lights – do they have patterns as well as just colors?
