The boundaries of what you can do with complete customization and hundreds of LEDs are infinite.

if the MPD32 is roughly £230, i reckon this will cost quite a bit more, possibly £400. Is it available to buy though? I think there's gonna be more to this (software wise) than we know at the moment.

Buttons - Pads - whatever, I want to use those lit up buttons to play notes!

but looking at the labelling it doesn't look like it.

Bwah I want pads!

What's the estimated cost? £200? £250?
At the very least, I think. I'm betting somewhere between 400 and 600 euro - 600 would be the death sentence for this rig, though, wouldn't it?
£400 I'd pay, at top whack. Any more and they'd have to go down on me to get my cash!

LoLz. I think that my better half would have something to say about either of those things tho... spending £400 on a new gadget, or getting my junk messed around with!

It does look bloody lovely though. Exactly what I've been craving!

I'm guessing it is not velocity sensitive, as it would make their entire range of mpd controllers moot. Side by side, they'd be a pretty impressive setup, visuallly. So, I'll hang on to my PadKontrol, however, ANYONE WANT TO BUY A NOVATION REMOTE ZERO SL?

Best bet will be to bug the people who don't use Ableton, I believe everyone here will be GASing for it too. XD

I'm keeping my MPD 32.

I plan on sitting a APC 40 right next to it.

Couldn't have placed an order for parts on a better time than this.. :lol:

*Goes off on a search for transparent arcade buttons with bi-color LED's in them, because the APC just isn't big enough*

Hehe, you probably can emulate it with three or for ipodtouchs.

Who will wait for the APC80?
