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)

- 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.

“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
