that looks like a pretty rockin device.
If it really is $399.00 when it comes out, I will definitely be picking one up.

I don't think Gerhard, the CEO of Ableton, is wrong when he says it ;)

I think they're going to sell a boatload. $399 is a good price!

dv247 €447/£399 i hate it when this happens $399 does not equal. wasn't convinced until i watched the video now i really want one. have a question though, do you reckon the crossfader curve is programmable? and is it replaceable?

Well, the crossfader is probably just a midi control to control Live's crossfader - so I'm guessing yes, you can change the curves. I read somewhere on the Akai site that it's replaceable, yes.
