Unless I'm missing something, the main innovation here is that it looks like it will automatically map knobs to parameters, but only in software that supports it.

AFAIK, Ableton does not support this yet....any known plans for them to?

er, is that an innovation?
Thats like the way my edirol maps pots to different parameters logically in Reason? IE if I have the mixer selected the first pot is volume, if I have the subtractor selected the first pot is filter cutoff.

or perhaps they mean an innovations like mackiemode?

I'm baffled by this marketing mumbo jumbo.

I too am a little confused by exactly what's so innovative about this -- could it be that Mackie more or less has a "canned" set of things it will automate, while this will respond to a larger range of possibilities, and it will be a bit more interactive?

While I would enjoy seeing a common standard for this sort of thing emerge, it will be a shame if the standard is proprietary.

I must be missing something here. :(

Other than the fact that it dynamically reassigns its knobs (with supported software packages only), why is this product so significant?

Thanks
