that's cool.

what's missing though is a display at the knobs that would show you which device in a chain you are controlling actually. but maybe this is being displayed in the the live gui itself? blue hand?

seriously pic worthy...

wait a sec... perma-assigned controls?!?! does it come with a template .als or does it use OSC? IMO that's am excellent choice of control to assign. I could see that being USB powered, there are LEDs on it to power, but not that many.

what's 'detail view?'

a google search brings up n-o-t-h-i-n-g. 8O price guesses? $250.

btw 'stop all clips' is for pussies.

in the interview, he also refers to the ableton/ cycling 74 partnership as "max for live". guess that's the big surprise.

oops. beans = spilled:

GB: It’s quite fortuitous for Live users that’s we’ve worked for Akai at this time, as it coincides with our product partnership with Cycling 74, Max for Live.
