Hardware controllers for a software brand

In 2005, Native Instruments (NI), the pioneer in software instruments for computer-based music production, turned to Pilotfish to venture further and create a complete line of hardware controllers for their software products. Starting from scratch, Pilotfish developed the hardware design language as well as the overarching style and award-winning individual product designs for the entire NI controller range. Today, NI is the fastest growing company in the industry, offering fully-integrated hardware and software products that regularly push technological boundaries and open new creative horizons for music professionals and amateurs alike.

Behind the Scenes

Pilotfish created more than 12 physical interfaces for NI’s audio software tools. Intuitive, stylish and sturdy, they perpetuate the company’s brand image of providing outstanding tools for musicians, producers, sound designers and DJs of all styles and genres.
