In our recent Intech Studio Grid review we praised this unique modular MIDI controller solution for its innovative approach and quality build. Today Intech Studio, the Hungarian company behind Grid, announced TEK2, a new Grid module for the controller equipped with double infinite rotation potentiometers and eight separate buttons.
According to Intech Studio, TEK2 is made for multimedia creatives boasting a distinguished
audiovisual skillset, aiming to broaden their horizons through new ways of tactile
The TEK2 adds to the fine-tuning experience with a pair of ergonomically designed knobs, equipped with a two-state switch (pressed & released) and a smooth endless rotation.
In addition, both potentiometers are equipped with 5-point LED feedback, creating a brand new perspective among Grids. These full RGB multicolor programmable LED lights can be set to several animation modes configurable with the Grid Editor’s toolset. Such a ‘5-bit display’ indicator is perfect for giving feedback on centered or starting value positions and highlighting parameter states.
The large knobs are accompanied by a set of 8 tactile buttons which can act like shift buttons, toggles or triggers – easing the way for quick mode switches, dynamic settings navigation and active function changes of the two massive knobs.
TEK2 preserves its compatibility with all pre-existing and future Grid modules, forming an ecosystem both in design and software. While it remains a MIDI and HID-compliant device, the company plans to expand Grid’s controlling possibilities through new Adobe and DaVinci software integrations requested by their community.
