    Great Idea, this is definitely something I would do for the forum.

    The connection is USB and will be shipping from United States. (Updated the post)

    The device has a 7mm gap between the fader knobs.

    Edit: This is dependant on the type of fader knob used. Currently the device has 13mm SSL ALPS Metalized Touch Sensitive fader knob. So if you decide to change fader knobs, it may be larger or smaller.

    Please excuse my ignorance, is there something special about this one that I'm missing? (Don't mean any offence either)

    I like it a lot. Minimalist design, small footprint. My only questions:

    How will one edit the MIDI CC assignments for the faders? Presumably some sort of app - hopefully for both Mac and PC?

    Is it by any chance based on a Livid Instruments "Builder" engine, so we'd use their "Livid Builder Editor", or what? Just curious about that aspect.

    Thank you for your question. This was going to be addressed when production was confirmed, however happy to answer this now.

    As this device was built for the intent of one user, changing the assignment of the CC's is done through the Arduino platform. It is very simple, and utilises two programs based on that platform that accompany each other through the process. Considering this device will now be manufactured for more than myself, I most likely will look at integrating an user friendly app that assists in assigning the faders.

    All those who have reserved their order, will receive additional information of this process.

    Hope that answers this question.

    thanks for letting me know. i believe you have something going here, this looks really interesting. i have a new DAW controller on order and i might need to wait a little until i find out if there's still the need for an extra box. in any case, do you plan to have a second run later, of course depending on the "back order" situation at this point in time?

    If all goes well, would definitely plan to produce more, and most definitely continue development.
