Introducing the DS1

The DS1 MIDI Mixer is a portable solution for computer-based mixing, production and performance, constructed with only the highest-quality parts and materials.

This intuitive and versatile controller is the result of a creative collaboration between Livid Instruments and Dubspot, forged from a shared desire to bring classic audio mixer design to the digital world.

We teach our students on a wide variety of software platforms, styles, and genres. For years we’ve been searching for a universal controller tough enough to meet the demands of our workstations.

We never found exactly what we were looking for, so we decided to create our own. The DS1 combines the style of portable controllerism with the ruggedness of a full mixer and can be used with every DAW we teach on.

- Dubspot Founder & CEO Dan Giove


We’ve focused on producing only high-quality and innovative products for electronic music, and Dubspot has transformed the way music is taught. This product has been a result of the years of discussions we’ve had together.
