Overture X4

The Overture X4 is a midi controller and mobile DAW software designed for production and performance with a slim portable form factor. This was a group project between Cory Foster and myself. I wrote, directed, and performed the routine in the promotional video. The video was shot by Jake Magraw.

Screen Designs

The DAW software was designed for mobile devices with performance in mind. The app is built to accommodate many types of music creators with a clip player screen, a drum rack screen, and a clip arrangement screen.

Hardware Design

Hardware Design

The hardware design was an interesting challenge because industrial design is outside my normal skill set, so it forced me to really embrace working with the limitations of physical hardware. The prototype’s housing was 3D printed from a the 3D mockup and then the arcade buttons and knobs were installed.

Branding

Branding

The branding was done in collaboration with Cory Foster. We focused on creating a brand that didn’t overshadow the tool it represented. It was meant to emphasize the simplicity and the ease of use of the tool while still maintaining the sophistication of the brand.
