A Kickstarter campaign from 203 Electronics is appealing for funding to create an all-new ultra-compact MIDI controller named Matrix.

The main features of this controller include its customisable control panel, sequencer and tracker mode, RTPMidi support, DAW integration, 2.4GHz wireless support and more.

The Kickstarter claims that Matrix will be available in June with enough backing.

In a statement, 203 Electronics write: “We appreciate your support for this project. It has been a journey to get here, and we look forward to where we will go next.”

It continues: “If you are a backer, let us know your plans for using Matrix. If not, let us know what you would like to see on it. We will continue to provide updates based on everyone’s interests.”
