and from their new midi controllers:
Is a joystick more your style? We’ve got you covered. Our innovative ClickPoint™ performs double duty, as either as an X/Y joystick or as a USB mouse to navigate through your softsynths or DAW software. This dynamic controller is a 3-axis, spring-loaded, fingertip joystick-trackball that is difficult to describe, but easy to use.
seems like there's always people wanting chiming in here who don't want to have to use their mouse while performing... this might be a good option.

The Radias looks like a whole lot of fun. Between the new VA from Roland and the Radias I would pick the Radias but then again, who wouldn’t? The Roland VA would be so darn easy to program though and I guess there is something to be said for that. A problem I see with the Radias is that I am guessing that the polyphony of a maxed out patch is probably down to 8 or even 6 voices. I decided that I wouldn’t buy another analog or VA that was less than a minimum of 16 voices ever again years ago and have stuck to that ever since (excluding mono’s of course).

lol, so i just called those lunch-boxes at Guitar Center to ask them when we could expect stock of the padKontrol. The guy was like "well, m-audio has a pretty good grip on the market. i wouldnt expect to see us carry something like that from korg anytime soon. although i might be able to special order it"
ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME. lol, these guys are sooooo god damn stupid. If they honestly dont carry them, i will never even look at a guitar center again.

Bloody brilliant. Absolutely bloody brilliant. This company never ceases to impress me.

I found the MS-2000 series to be the easiest synths to program that I have ever laid hands on. It looks like there's a lot of similarity between the MS2000s and these Radiases.

Very impressed. The pad kontrol jobby is pretty sweet too, kind of makes me regret my MPD-16.
