[quote="Rx"]I have seen that, but is it worth the cost?
For $150, you get the Niche Automation Station with 16 sliders and 4 knobs - not sure if you can switch midi channels or not (anyone else know?).
Niche----- yes you can switch midi channels.. it has 16 midi channels and each fader is able to be assignable separatly.. you can do much more also, you can assign groups of faders or mutes to one 'master' fader/mute so you can control multiple samples with one switch.. it also has snapshot capablities, you if you have multiple preset fader values you want to change on the fly, its got 16 banks to use.... the efx knobs(altho clicky) can also be assigned to 16 midi channels..
so that makes what...
16 x 16 faders- 232faders
4 x 16 knobs- 64 knobs
not bad for 150?
now what i am disapointed at is the oxygen 8, it has 8 knobs with no internal memory.. so there are no grouping for the 8 knobs, so your stuck with only 8 knobs
unlike the evoulution counterpart(forgot the model number).. also in osx, you do not need a separate midi driver for the evolution keyboard.. i saw a post earlier about the new oxygen 8 having internal memory... must be a rumor, havent seen one yet...
