The Smithson Martin KS-1974 Kontrol Surface is a 4-point, multi-touch, glass MIDI control surface that allows you to customize your own controller setup. The unit is housed within a 1970s-era wooden console, and can be used for studio production, video editing, DJing, VJing, lighting, and any other application that involves MIDI.

The controller uses Smithson Martin's Emulator Pro software that allows you to customize and calibrate your controller setup with virtual touch-sensitive objects such as sliders, faders, circular knobs, buttons, jog wheels, and graphics. The parameters of these objects such as angle rotation, opacity, and color may be edited within Emulator Pro.

A variety of templates designed by both Smithson Martin and the Emulator user community are available for software such as Ableton Live, Traktor, Arkaos, Torq, Mixvibes, Resolume, Serato, Traktor, and others. You can start with an existing template, modify the control parameters to your liking, and then share it online

The unit features a hard-wired combination HDMI/VGA/USB cable for connecting to a computer's video output and sending MIDI over USB.

Custom Engraving

For an additional fee, Smithson Martin will laser engrave the endcaps of your 1974 Kontrol Surface with your name, logo, or image of choice.
