The Competition

The Competition

22nd November 2010, in Highlights, News/Blog ( Comments)

This is a nascent market, but 60 Works does share it with a few others. Here are some alternative outlets that could help contract a custom controller:

  • custommidicontrollers.com: I know little about these folks, but the owner is a friend of a friend, and said friend (Moldover) vouches for him.
  • Livid Industry: This is the OEM/Custom arm of Livid Instruments, maker of VJ/Music controllers and DIY MIDI brains.
  • Craig Dorety: Another friend of a friend (Moldover strikes again). Craig has taught classes on making MIDI controllers.
  • The Midibox Forum: The Midibox folks are staunchly anti-commercial, but you may be able to finagle a relationship with a forum member for a custom project. There are some hoops to jump through to acquire permission.
  • DJ Tech Tools: They offer customized versions of their popular MIDI Fighter controller.


Why are you sharing this information?

60 Works is trying to attract motivated, educated customers. Comparison shopping is a business reality, so we will not stifle it.
