Promising tactile controler for anyone, Palette connects knobs, faders, and more as easily as LEGO. A look at its design - and the incubator behind it.
nay-seven's insight:

Thanks to peter kirn ( http://createdigitalmusic.com) here a new " lego style" quickstarter to add knobs, buttons and faders to your set .i feel it's a bit expensive ( 99$ for 1 knob,1 button, 1fader..) and sadly you have to group all of them in one block , but can be a good configuration for some minimal uses

Joe Bruce's curator insight, February 10, 2014 11:39 AM

This is awesome.. I like the fact I can have an easy and fun controls for my music programs. The customization of the Palette is the best thing about it. The universality of it is a huge plus considering you would want to use it outside music programs. Using this to edit video would be great. Being able to customize the Palette for each program makes it desirable. The website was helpful and credible for such information.
