More Than an Awesome Live Performance Tool

A powerful electronic music performance instrument is just one way to look at the Livid CNTRL:R USB/MIDI control surface. Digital DJs at Sweetwater immediately saw its potential for live performance and music production in the studio, but it's infinitely-programmable nature makes it a smart control option for lighting, live visuals, and video mixing too. The best part is that while the CNTRL:R is easy to program, there are thousands of user-made templates available online for all manner of applications. You may be able to integrate it seamlessly into your rig without any programming at all!

Made for live music performance, flexible enough for almost any MIDI control task

The first thing you'll notice about the Livid CNTRL:R (or any Livid product for that matter), is that its aluminum construction feels reassuringly rugged. It's handcrafted in Austin, TX, by people that understand the electronic music scene. While these pads and knobs are ultra-responsive, you can also tell they're built to last. And while all this makes the CNTRL:R the perfect choice for night after night of stage use, its amazing flexibility makes it ideal for your studio and other applications too.

Tap into a community of dedicated control freaks

Musicians at Sweetwater have been around long enough to know that "extremely customizable" can sometimes be code for "you'll spend hours programming this" - not so with the Livid CNTRL:R. It is easy to configure, but the best part is that thousands of other CNTRL:R users have been creating their own custom maps for years. In fact you may find that you never have to program anything on the CNTRL:R, because other users have probably blazed the trail for you already.

Designed by electronic music pioneers

Livid collaborated with electronic musician Richie Hawtin and other artists on m_nus records to create the CNTRL:R, so you know it's been designed from the ground up by people that understand the needs of modern musicians. While everything can be programmed to be whatever you need, the 32 buttons at the bottom are perfect for controlling software-based step sequencers. The pad array in the middle is a natural choice for playing drum samples and software instruments. The more time you spend with the CNTRL:R, the more you realize that Livid really put a lot of thought into how you as a musician want to interact with your controller.
