Using an Evolution X-session; mainly as it's really well built, small and powered~MIDI by USB. Although I've replaced the annoyingly small knob caps & cross fader with ones off an old Pioneer DJM600. They now point upsidedown but at least they're a decent size.

I don't use a controller for my Ableton DJ sets, I just mix with whatever DJ mixer the club has typically. Easier to set up too, as I don't need to find space for it in the smaller clubs.

For my Live sets, I use a Korg MicroKontrol.

Oh yeah, here's my newest Ableton based DJ set:

like drush said - whats the point? when you can use the uc 33 at a fraction of the price. one for the big spenders.

it's not an ableton controller as much as it's a way to integrate ableton into the ~standard dj environment. so if you're not trying to tie all that audio + midi together from different sources, no, it probably doesn't make much sense.

they might do a special limited sale run. they've also been saying that months, so it's a big maybe. i've asked him about price and he doesn't really know or isn't saying. but if you look at the cost of the xone92, assume it'll be a good deal more than that....

Very good build quality, very good musical eq and....very expensive.

Also... there are more than enough eq possibilities to do all the mastering and "eq"-ing in Live so why pay for a very expensive external mixer if you also can use a simple midi(evolution/behringer/remote25) for the job.

A shame that they didn,t put a (4 or 6) firewire or usb audio interface on it then it realy would be more interesting.

But it shure looks rockandroll but dododon,t believe the hype!!!(haha)

The 92 offers a way to sync up Live to a traditional dj set-up as well as having clip launch etc. straight from the mixer.
When I spoke to A&H at Plasa they said there are 5 CTRL's in existance and it is unlikely to ever see production unless there is a big increase in demand. Never say never though!
