Asparion has announced the D400 DAW Controller – a scalable DAW controller that can offer up to 64 motorized faders and ‘countless LED push buttons’.
The D400 system is built around two modules:
The D400T forms the basis of the system.
In addition to basic functions like “play”, “stop” and “record”, you can control settings like volume and panorama with the rotary encoders surrounded by an LED ring.
By use of buttons 1 to 8 you can assign several functions to the rotary encoders. With the four additional rotary encoders you easily control an EQ.
The Jog-Shuttle combination takes you to the correct spot in a matter of seconds. The available sockets to connect a sustain or expression pedal even lets you use your feet.
You can connect up to 8 extensions to the D400T which gives you up to 64 faders at the same time.
The D400 F offers a combination of 8 precise motorized ALPS faders with 3 LED push buttons each, with an accuracy of up to 4000 levels per fader.
Each extension can be connected to another extension, so there are sufficient USB ports at any time.
Details on the Asparion D400 system are available at the company’s site.
