We’ll have details as they become available.

Livid Instruments has introduced the new Alias 8 MIDI Controller.
Here’s what they have to say about the Alias 8:
The Livid Alias 8 delivers the quick and dirty control you need in a durable, compact package with high-quality controls. Perfect as a portable mixer control, the Alias 8 is designed to satisfy the essential needs of every studio or a live rig.
Eight “channel strips” of knobs, faders, and buttons, and a full-size master fader easily adapt to traditional mixing. The dual-function encoder makes it easy to change the MIDI channel (up to 15 channels), instantly extending its reach to control more of your software, while always keeping track of any LED feedback on the other channels. The encoder can also be used as a MIDI control for flipping through tracks or adjusting your cue volume – just push the encoder down to change its function.
With the Livid Elements system, you can create a custom controller layout by selecting and combining the modules that you need. Each module connects to the Elements Brain for plug-and-play configuration and setup.
Elements modules are housed in custom Eurorack cases for plug and play integration.
