  • The MOJO

    24th April 2012

     

    The MOJO is a performance MIDI controller designed by Moldover. Scroll down for more details. Scroll even further for a sales pitch where we try to build & sell you one.

     

     

    The MOJO has gone open source. Everything you need to build your own MOJO is contained in the following file:

    MOJO Open Source Archive (94MB .zip file)

    What’s inside?:

    • A brief instruction guide and Q&A. (Note: BRIEF being the operative word. There is no 100-page step-by-step guide to the various technical and electrical challenges behind completing this build.)
    • ORIGINAL design files for Laser Cutting and Milling.
    • Full Parts list.
    • MIDI Mapping reference: overlay pictures and programming files.
    • Two Ableton Live templates mapped to the MOJO. Use them with your own MOJO, or just steal the incredible effects chains.
    Also, check this video for an in-depth look at a typical MOJO build.

     

    “Don’t mistake it for a shiny, well built box with fun buttons. This is a true instrument, I approach and play it in much the same way I approach my horn. There really is nothing quite like it.” — Geoff Countryman

    “As a musician/instrumentalist, I had been frustrated by controllers that lacked an expressive interface — button grids simply did not do it for me. Then the Mojo came along. With its combination of ribbons, switches, buttons, and ergonomic design, I was in controller heaven. Playing with sound had never been so much fun!”
     — Goyopod

     

     


    “The Mojo is the single greatest controller in the history of MIDI. If it had a vagina I would never leave the house.” — Ill Gates
