Livid Instruments has announced the Ohm64 Customizer - a new web-based service that lets you style and customize your own Livid Ohm64 MIDI Controller.
Here's what they have to say about it:
This simple web-based Flash application lets you style and customize your own Ohm64 with over 100 different combinations.
Custom finishes have been something we have been doing for a while, and you can see some of our past efforts in our St. Ohm64 and Diablo Block, Halloween Editions, and many of the custom finishes we have created for artists in the past. We’ve always thought of our hardware as “instruments,” and an important difference between instrument and “control surface,” is that an instrument accommodates different styles and use.
We obviously back that up with technology, but, since style is something that is of high importance to us (and probably you if you are reading this), we have spent a lot of time trying to figure out how to make controller customization as part of our assembly line (see the “meet your makers” blog post to see the people making your controllers”).
The Customizer lets you design, preview, and order a custom Ohm64 and have it made-to-order and shipped in ten days. Custom options include multiple color body finishes, LED colors, and faceplate colors.
Pricing and Availability
Each custom element is currently $10. See the Livid site for details.
