Armin Van Buuren is spearheading the latest movement in live production technology. Thalmic Labs new Myo armband technology allows the wearer to turn the music down by making a fist or control stage lighting with a wave of their arms. Compatible with all of your favorite DJ tools i.e. Ableton, Serato, Traktor, Logic Pro, and Garage Band, the armband lets you manipulate songs by acting as a MIDI controller. Grab, twist, turn, and squeeze to adjust pitch, tone, tempo, and volume. DJs and producers can now be hands free and add a whole new element of live performance into their shows.

“I always love to involve new ideas into my show. Crowd interaction is absolutely key to me and the Myo helps me with this. It can create a unique experience for the clubber and it feels like I’m even closer to them.” – Armin Van Buuren
