"We teach our students on a wide variety of software platforms, styles, and genres”, explains Dan Giove, CEO of Dubspot. “For years we’ve been searching for a universal controller tough enough to meet the demands of our workstations. We never found exactly what we were looking for, so we decided to partner with Livid and create our own. The DS1 combines the style of portable controllerism with the ruggedness of a full mixer and can be used with every DAW we teach on.” Founded in 2006, Dubspot is one of the world’s leading schools for electronic music production, DJing and performance, with campuses in New York City, Los Angeles, online and dubspot.com
