Whether you are mixing in the studio, performing on stage, or travelling to a gig, the Ds1 is designed to fit into your setup and lifestyle.

Use the Ds1 Integration Guide for project templates, setup instructions, and other resources to get started with Ds1 and your favorite music production or DJ software.

  • 44 rotary knobs with single-color backlighting.
  • 4 push encoders.
  • 25 RGB backlit buttons.
  • USB powered class-compliant MIDI.
