Bartosz Kowalski and Joseph Chehade have launched a Kickstarter project for umidi, the world’s first custom DJ controller.

umidi is a custom DJ controller you design. Using our design interface, you can choose up to 36 components on a 6×6 grid including knobs, faders, encoders, jog wheels, and aluminium push buttons.

You can choose the way your components are positioned, colored, and the lighting shapes around each one. To personalize your controller further, you can have a custom image laser etched onto your umidi. You are able to build a completely unique controller.

We build your design and ship it directly to you anywhere in the world. Every controller is assembled and tested in our workshop.

The project aims to raise $20,000 AUD by Saturday Jan 18, 2014. You can pre-order the umidi controller by pledging at various levels.
