OVERVIEW

Fully customizeable MIDI controller, with pressure sensitive pads, sliders, and buttons.

Livid Instruments knows MIDI, and their BASE controller adds to an already bustling line of fully customizable MIDI controllers. BASE is a sleek control surface with 32 pressure-sensitive pads; nine touch sliders, eight touch-sensitive buttons, and eight momentary buttons, for plenty of ways to play, perform, and create music. All parameters of the BASE controller are illuminated by bright RBG lights and a simple to read character display that all provide plenty of necessary feedback while playing drums, synths, loops, step sequences, preset changes and even navigating through your set. It’s a Livid controller, so everything is completely customizable to your preference and workflow using the included BASE Editor that works with your favorite DAW, VST, plug-in, or application.

More Than A Fader
The touch faders on Base offer a lot more than your traditional analog fader. The LED feedback keeps you updated with the current value, and can adapt when you dynamically reassign the faders to your software. But these faders can also deliver a note and velocity when you touch them, potentially acting as a switch for instantly engaging effects, or playing a sound when you touch the fader. And because you can access any value at any time, you can instantly jump to new values as well as make smooth, continuous changes.

Under Pressure
With 32 pressure sensitive pads, Base breaks open new possibilities for playing drums and synths, and new capabilities for squeezing new sounds from your existing gear. Set up a bass synth next to the drum pads so you can access more of your production at once. Turn off the notes on some pads, and use the CC values from "aftertouch" for modulating filters and effects. Setup four mini-kits at fixed velocities to give you the exact sound you need for your production. Because the Base is completely editable, you can reconfigure it for new creative possibilities.

Leave The Moving To You
With no moving parts, the Base puts the "solid" in solid state. An all-aluminum body and extruded aluminum frame makes it extra sturdy and exceptionally sleek. A rubber-coated bezel adds strength and comfort to the faceplate. No sliders to bend, no knobs to catch: at under an inch thick and a face that's probably smaller than your laptop, Base goes in and out of your bag from studio to show.

But I Like Knobs
There’s no need to reinvent the wheel. With Base, you can focus on playing and tweaking with just enough controls to fill your hands and just enough options to fill your head. And because it's a Livid controller, there will be new interesting templates, patches, apps, and videos that will help you learn new ways of freeing your Base.

Edit Everything
No matter what application you are using it for, Base is totally configurable to suit your needs. Load up the easy-to-use web-based editor in a browser to edit all of the controls on the Base. Choose different fader display modes (walk, fill, eq, and spread), change the velocity sensitivity of the pads, switch buttons from momentary to toggle, customize the colors, and of course, edit the MIDI output. Save settings to the internal memory banks and instantly recall and display the presets with a press of a button.

    Comments about Livid Base MIDI Controller:

    I bought this for the touch faders but was super impressed by the performance on the pads. Even better than my beloved MPC!
