Introducing the DS1 MIDI Mixer

The DS1 MIDI Mixer is a portable solution for computer-based mixing, production and performance, constructed with only the highest-quality parts and materials.

This intuitive and versatile controller is the result of a creative collaboration between Livid Instruments and Dubspot, forged from a shared desire to bring classic audio mixer design to the digital world.

Dubspot’s student workstations in NYC (and soon LA) are equipped for a wide variety of uses, whether it be mixing, production, sound design or DJing.

We could never find a single complementary controller on the market to meet our functionality and durability needs, so we decided to simply build one ourselves, with Livid Instruments as the perfect partner.

- Dubspot Founder & CEO Dan Giove

By combining Livid’s design and command of high-quality materials with Dubspot’s years of experience teaching enthusiastic students, the DS1 is designed to get work done.
