About

What is it? 

Mixology is a solution for audiophile gamers who need control. Using Windows OS, this device allows users the ability to change a program's volume without leaving a full screen environment.

The device is simple: 5 faders, 4 OLED screens, 1 button. 

How does it work? 

Mixology allows you to control every aspect of the Windows volume mixer without ever having to leave the game. If you want to change the volume on up to four programs, you can do that without missing a single creep.

As you open programs the icon will be loaded onto the device. When you move the fader on the device, the volume changes. Four of the faders can be linked to programs and the fifth acts as a master control & mute/power switch for total control.  

Mixology allows you to control every aspect of the Windows volume mixer without leaving the game.

Colors!

We hope to provide Mixology in Matte black and white.

Risks and challenges

Full disclosure, this is my first Kickstarter project. There may be setbacks and things to learn but I want to share my idea with fellow gamers who share my musical frustrations.

Other challenges that lay ahead include:
- Not meeting production deadlines.
- Issues with assembly or ordering of parts.
- Unforeseen technical issues.

However, I am here to share my idea and do so at an affordable level. If you would like to help with the project please feel free to email: Veridianaudio@gmail.com

We will keep all lines of communication open with our backers, to give you frequent updates on the progress we make. We will sure update more with photos or videos. Thank you for your support.
