Livid Builder Series

Projects > Livid Builder Series

The Livid Builder series is a line of DIY circuit boards and components that can be used to create your own MIDI controllers. Using ribbon connectors, users can connect a wide variety of analog input devices like buttons, knobs, joysticks, and faders without soldering. Input from these components is controlled by Livid’s user-programmable Brain V2 or Brain Jr., which converts analog or digital signals to MIDI information. Enclosures with minimalist designs are also available to house projects for a professional look.
