Overview

Adaptable
The OhmRGB and OhmRGB Slim are designed as an adaptable instrument and can be used for music, dj'ing, visuals, lighting, and presentations, in the studio or on the stage. The bi-directional communication keeps the controller in touch with the software, and keeps you focused on your performance. Completely reprogrammable MIDI settings let you set up the controller for any situation.

Scripts and templates are available for many popular software titles like Ableton Live, Propellerhead's Reason and Record, Traktor, Arkaos, Cuelux, and many more for total plug-and-play performance. No drivers are required and all power comes from USB so you can dive right into OhmRGB's "open-minded" nature and discover endless possibilities to push the boundaries of computer music and digital control. Our growing library of open source applications and patches for programs like Max/MSP, Max for Live, and PD, that open up new creative possibilities. As you expand your skills, get new ideas, and try out new software, you can be confident that the OhmRGB will be ready to work.



Whether you are launching clips in Live, mixing tracks in Traktor, or cuing visuals in Arkaos, the OhmRGB provides an incredibly flexible interface for switching from one application to another.

USB Powered and Plug and Play
The OhmRGB is a class compliant plug-and-play MIDI device. This means you don't need to deal with any drivers or worry about your operating system: simply connect it to your computer and start playing. Power comes from the USB port on your computer, so no power adapters, cables, or power strips fill up your gig bag. Just one USB cable is all you need to power and play your instrument.



Multicolor LEDs
All the buttons on the OhmRGB and OhmRGB Slim have multicolor LEDs with seven different colors. The colors on the LEDs can be changed by sending it MIDI messages from your software or using scripts like the one for Ableton Live. Use the editor to set different color states to create visual maps and indicators for use during your performance.


Expansion Jacks and MIDI In/Out
The OhmRGB come with our expansion module for added adaptability, flexibility and control. Two ¼” jacks allow you to connect Roland-style foot pedals and single analog controls. Put your feet in the mix for additional controls, or experiment adding different sensors and switches. If that’s not enough, you can add up to eight more analog controls with the pin header connection. Accessorize your setup with our XPC Expansion Controllers using a single cable to connect to the expansion jacks. Of course, our Builder series BYOB boards can also be easily integrated for a totally customized and modular setup.



The OhmRGB also has a standard 5-pin MIDI In and Out ports, giving you the ability to control other instruments and devices. Analog midi gear, sequencers, samplers, sensors, or custom made controllers can all be controlled with the OhmRGB. Other MIDI devices can also be connected to the OhmRGB MIDI input allowing you to easily integrate the OhmRGB into your existing setup. You can also control multiple computers at once by using both the USB and MIDI output connection simultaneously.

Editor
The OhmRGB Editor provides an interface for changing the MIDI assignments of the OhmRGB buttons, knobs, sliders, and LEDs. Sliders and knobs can send out a variety of combinations of control and pitchbend data. Buttons can send out note or controller messages. LED colors can be customized and set to different states. Multiple presets can also be created and stored internally on the controller for on the fly changes.

High Quality Build
Handcrafted in our Austin, TX facility, each OhmRGB and OhmRGB Slim is carefully assembled using only high quality parts and materials. Every detail has been considered when designing from the hand finished mahogany wood end caps to sleek aluminum bodies. We only use high quality fadesr and knobs for use in the most demanding circumstances.

 

Community
We have a growing library of applications, tools, scripts, and open source patches available for the OhmRGB. Our growing user community have contributed to this library with Max for Live devices to custom Remote Scripts for Ableton Live. All of the people building and designing our controllers are also using the live and supporting them, and our active community continues to expand the possibilities and uses for the instrument. The OhmRGB was designed an evolving instrument with a ever expanding list of uses and will grow with you as an artist and performer.
