Tinami is a custom MIDI controllers laboratory, who have been in touch to tell us that their hardware startup is focused in the development of their first product, the MD-1: a 16 components (4x4 layout) fully customizable MIDI controller that will start shipping next year.
They say that the difference between a typical MIDI controller and the MD-1 is that this last one can be individually tailored through Tinami's website by just dragging and dropping the components you need. Knobs, buttons and faders are available for users to design their own controller layout. This allows them to configure a unique controller that's the best fit for their live set or studio needs.
The company says that, aesthetically inspired by 'analog synths golden era' devices, the MD-1 includes a sturdy black metal case and real wood panels. Sebastian, MD-1 designer, told us, "Our idea is to give back the analog touch to software instruments and effects with a portable, high quality and good looking MIDI controller."
Pricing and Availability:
Tinami MD-1 is still on its development stage and the first units will be available later this year through a crowdfunding campaign.
