The MIDI GUN is a novel handheld midi controller. This gun shaped interface was especially designed to remotely control real-time music softwares, including Ableton LIVE and Traktor DJ.
The MIDI GUN simultaneously replaces the classical DJ mixer and the keyboard. Because of its practical shape and easily accessible knobs, buttons and sensors, the MIDI GUN is very easy to use.
The user of the MIDI GUN can trigger and control sounds and effects on a PC without watching a monitor or using a mouse and keyboard. The controllers and sensors can be individually customized to fit the connected software or to serve individual user preferences. The MIDI GUN offers 16 different controllers which can be incorporated in 16 switchable sets. This allows for a total of 256 independent sound and effects controls at the reach of the user’s fingertips. Additional lighting effects and a visible distance measuring laser beam guarantee the attention of the audience.
