Midique Kontrl9 DAW Controller


Midique Kontrl9 looks classic but, the Kontrl9 has an alternative.


The Kontrl9 made in Berlin from oak and aluminium, and this eschews the flashing lights and large displays of many of its rivals in favour of a minimalist design that provides 27 knobs, nine faders and nine LED indicators.


The knobs are made from stainless steel, and promise a “great sense of space” and haptics so that you can make precise adjustments. They are sturdy enough that you do not have to worry about them getting knocked.


In addition, the Kntrl9 can connect to your hardware and software via USB or a standard MIDI Out port. The mixer-style layout indicates that it could particularly useful as a DAW controller, and a MIDI remote script for Ableton Live comes supplied. And, the LEDs correspond to the track colour in your DAW.


Regarding sustainability, Midique says that care is taken to ensure that the oak comes from “well-managed” sources and that, when possible, recycled wood is used. And because there’s next to no plastic involved in its construction, we are assured that the Kntrl9 is as sturdy as it looks.


You can find out more and place an order on the Midique website. The Kntrl9 costs €315 plus shipping.
