This is a USB MIDI hardware device that comes in two versions, with or without integrated sound card. It can be used to control any software that supports MIDI on MAC/PC/iPad.
This project was in fact two projects, one for each version of the console (U-Mix Control Pro and U-Mix Control 2 that had no sound card). It was a complex project that required a multitude of software tools which in the end enriched my skills by huge margin. The design of the jog wheel was a nice challenge. I proposed several solutions from which the final one was agreed upon and we can see it today.
The people involved were from different parts of the globe with different time zones.
This project like many of my other projects was done without interacting or touching any of the actual physical samples.
