You haven’t got long to make the Tinami MD-1 customisable MIDI controller a reality

The Tinami MD-1 is a customisable MIDI controller intended to extend your current setup and has limited time left on Kickstarter to reach its €35,000 goal.

The product is designed to give users the choice to create a controller that works for them, be it all with knobs, or knobs and faders, or even knobs and buttons.

Pledges for the MD-1 start at €5 to have your name mentioned on the website, rising to €25 for a t-shirt. However, it's at €200 where the fun begins, which will secure you a MD-1 with knobs and buttons, with two skins for customisation. €250 will get you the knobs, button, and faders version and includes the two skins.

Further pledging options include multiple MD-1s with extra gifts, with the top option being two MD-1 (fader version) and a t-shirt all for €500.

Time is running out with only a couple of days left of the campaign, so if you want t get involved, we suggest you head on over to the Tinami MD-1 Kickstarter page now.

Video Producer & Reviews Editor

I take care of the reviews on MusicRadar and Future Music magazine, though can sometimes be spotted in front of a camera talking little sense in the presence of real musicians. For the past 30 years, I have been unable to decide on which instrument to master, so haven't bothered. Currently, a lover of all things high-gain in the guitar stakes and never one to resist churning out sub-standard funky breaks, the likes of which you'll never hear.
