Perfect for use with Ableton Live and Traktor, the Killamix-Mini is a compact USB controller housed in a sturdy brushed aluminium case with solid aluminium knobs. It is the perfect companion to your laptop, whether you are using a sequencer, DJ-ing or VJ-ing, just plug in the USB cable and go. Despite having only 9 knobs, 9 buttons and a joystick, the Killamix-Mini can in effect be 144 knobs,144 buttons and a joystick. By pressing a single knob you can select any MIDI transmit channel from 1 to 9, or, with a combination of two knobs, select the remaining channels 10 to 16. When you select a new MIDI channel, the current values of the knobs for that channel are stored so that they can be restored when you next select this channel, thus avoiding any parameter jump difficulties typical of units with traditional knobs and faders. When the values are restored, the LED rings around the knobs indicate their new positions.

  • The controller communicates via USB, has 9 endless rotary encoders, 9 push buttons and a joystick. It is USB bus powered for convenience
  • A single press of one of the 9 encoder knobs will select any MIDI channel from 1 to 9, (or pressing two knobs selects channels 10-16) LEDs indicate which MIDI channel is currently active
  • The encoders also 'remember' where they were when they were last used on that channel and display their position on the ring of leds around each knob, so you can change channel without fear of data jumps
  • The self-centering joystick can send information on the currently selected channel, and can be used for bending pitch or modulation control, or any other operation you wish to assign it to. Can be set as either two controllers with centre position 64, or as 4 controllers with centre as zero
  • The 9 push buttons send data on the selected MIDI channel and can 'remember' their on-off status, which is shown by internal LEDs. Each button can be set as one one of three modes - on only, on and off, or toggle
  • You can enable controller update mode so that information changed on your computer will update the values stored in the Killamix Mini
  • With the 9 channels available at the push of a single knob, you effectively have 81 endless controllers and 81 buttons at your fingertips in a very compact unit. (or 144 at the push of two knobs together)
  • The whole unit is attractively styled in a sturdy aluminium box, finished in brushed aluminium and with matching solid aluminium knobs
