That looks fucking excellent. I want one. Bring it in under 300euro and I'm having it.

Come on.. seriously. I like the 8x8 grid, the step sequencer grid, mixer section/dj section, and the pots but everything is really overboard together. Even then all these could hold their own as independent devices. I don't get the four white buttons above the mixer section and the mpc pads just take up space for no reason.

the more specialized/customized it would be, the less it would satisfy everyone

YES!!! I ordered some MidiBox 64 stuff a while back. I am trying to finish up an animation job I am before I get to work on in. I will actually build somethings a little different, but eventually a 32step seq would be AWESOME.

this framework is very powerful.
they released the core32 (usb support, OSC native support etc etc!)
my protodeck is core8 (2x core8) but works fine ;)

I got the Core32 and about 40 pots. Like I said it's been a few months and I have just been too busy with everything to really get going. I made that APC6000 thing for fun after reading some forum posts about the APC20. It' had me laughing as well as everyones ideas about it needing this and that. I figured I would just throw as much together as I could in a way that would benefit my "Live" set.

HOWEVER the controller I want to build is more of a controller for a GarageKey25. I use an older Novation ReMOTE 25, and I am going to replace it and build a new console/case kind of thing. I want to build the GarageKey25 into the console and make it look real nice. That particular keyboard has NO knobs though, so I want to build something specialized for it, & for Ableton! Seeing stuff like your protodeck is very inspiring, and very impressive! After I get the synth controls done, I would like to move on and do something like a 32step sequencer, similar to what I did on theis APC6000 render.

SO I will be blowing up your mail, when I get to building!

Not sure how much it costs Euro???

i like the addition of the a/b buttons, but you seem to have left out the bank select buttons.
and don't try to make this an audio interface. ditch the headphone output. keep it usb and ac adapter powered. too many people have firewire interfaces and laptops don't usually have multiple firewire ports.
great design, though. you got skillz!

looks awesome but $200 or euros is unrealistic.
