Code is a flexible and stylish control surface for computer music creation and performance. Its compact grid of 36 endless encoders with LED rings have built-in pushbuttons with addressable LEDs let you "think outside the grid." Code sends and receives MIDI, providing endless possibilities for use with software such as Ableton Live, Max/MSP, Properllerhead's Reason and Record, and NI Traktor, just to name a few. Class-complaint, bus-powered, and completely reprogrammable, Code is an ideal companion to hardware and software for music production. Open source firmware (licenced under GPL v3) provides developers with new avenues of exploration and the potential for users to try out different configurations.

Weighing in at only 2 lbs and 6" x 11" x 2" (WDH), Code is extremely portable and adaptable, so it will easily integrate with your existing hardware and software. Each encoder on the Code has an LED indicator ring that provides visual feedback on its position. Every encoder also works as a push button and has an LED indicator button below knob, opening up creative possibilities for use as a grid controller and knob controller at the same time. The minimal design and adaptability of Code make this controller a true instrument. Code is crafted at our facility in Austin, TX from sleek anodized aluminum with hand finished mahogany sides for style and performance.


Code v2 is now upgraded with more knob encoders and buttons (36 knobs/49 buttons vs. 32 knobs/45 buttons on v1) and now utilizes standalone MIDI I/O via DC to USB converter.
