oh yeah. . .

I'm gonna get one of them I reckon. . .
I slipped into a daze, whilst I was there I heard the most startling music, it was at once familiar and alien, reassuring and unsettling.

wow, if this is USB powered, then THIS is down my alley!

great!

i knew it's a good thing to wait! APC my arse, big bulky monster.

EDIT: KILLER IT'S USB POWERED, YEAH!!! i'm sold, completely sold!!!

and thanks god it's not made by Akai... i get one, i need to get one.

and you can daisy chain them 8O , someone was thinking!!! thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!

so, does it have a hole of the size of a turntable spindle in the bottom like a PadKONTROL, so you can place it onto a turntable platter in a busy and overfilled DJ booth? then it's perfect and they get all my respect.

let's see how close they are to reality!!! :mrgreen:

Glad I held out on the APC. Wasn't keen on not having dedicated knobs for things like eqing and such. And for $200!! I'm in.

Bet it would go on the bay for only $15-$20 less than you paid.

Looks good.... However in practise switching through so many different scenes like this guy does is gonna take an absolute age to learn and then you cant launch a clip whilst you effect the volume/filter of another... It's good as a lauch pad (and looks better than the APC for that but it's got the same challenge as every controller in that it won't be enough for some and it'll be too much for others....

Would love to know if it'd work in addition to the APC and then you could have two red squares, which'd give you most of the screen to be able to launch from!

Cheers

daisy chain them... one or two for the mixer and others for launch, etc. if you are a heavy power user.
that is i think by far the best control surface for session made.
