Adam Dzak’s Apollo 13 midi controller is a recreation of DJ Sasha‘s “Maven” which is Sasha’s personal, customized controller he uses for his sets.

The Maven is a one of a kind, unique, controller that you’ll never be able to personally see or touch (or much less have access too). It’s the one off controller that you only wish could play with. It’s the kind of device you know there is absolutely no way you’ll ever get to use. If you know what Ableton is and you see this controller, you should rightfully flip out over it.

I thought that way too, so I built one.
