Well, mine finally arrived but so far its not much of a success unfortunately..
It started with the DVD being not getting recognized. Turned out that my drive didn't grok the copy protection, but an old Linux box could read it. So well; ended up with imaging the entire DVD and using the image to install (brilliant copy protection scheme indeed
Yet now it turns out that knob 4 has a live of its own. iow; when you try to raise or lower the pitchbend of a pad the value is extremely jittery and its impossible to turn this to the maximum value without the value shooting up and down.
Same applies when you're using it in the browser to select a subtype; its sometimes impossible to make a direct selection...
Has any of you ever had issues like this, or experienced oddities with the dials as well? So far the dials are the only part I don't fancy; they don't feel very solid for some reason..
Anyway, apart from the dial issues the device itself looks and feels very slick indeed, I already managed to setup a template which gives full control over a Live drumrack whenever you switch to midi mode which makes it really fun (and easy) to use both Maschine and Live.
And yes; the pads respond a lot
better than those of my mpd24, man what an extreme difference that is..
Anyway, thanks for any insights you can provide me.
