Stick-on Knobs Allow iPad DJ’s To Mix With More Control
Tuna Knobs aim to bring the control of mixing consoles to tablets.
Music consumption has become basically instantaneous since the advent of digital production and Internet technologies. Music producers now have the option of using built-in electric and acoustic instruments, multiple audio and MIDI effects and other production effects with music sequencers and digital audio workstations like Ableton Live. Also, the vast popularity of tablets has given rise to the iPad DJ. Catering to the needs of high-tech DJ’s, Tuna Knobs aim to bring the tactile control of mixing consoles to tablets, with attachable knobs that work with multiple DJ apps.
The product was created by Dutch design startup Tweetonig and resemble radial sliders typically found on conventional mixing consoles, except that conductive rubber suction cups attach the knobs to the tablet touchscreen. When placed over a corresponding control, the knob moves the apps digital slider at the Dj’s prompt.
The concept is to make tablet music mixing as much like its conventional counterpart as possible, without the heavy equipment. Watch the video below to learn more about Tuna Knobs:
Tuna Knobs are available for pre-order via Kickstarter for about $20 Dollars.
