That seems way more interesting than M-Audio Xponent

The zero 4 seems to have an onboard sampler??? Are my eyes deceiving me? Or will someone concur?

The Zero8 looks like 8 knobs per channel, which is nice. Maybe even ten, if those two above the divider are assignable.

However, I'm left wanting buttons. BUTTONS per track people!

Let's see.

Clip Launch (in selected scene)
Arm Record
Mute
Cue
Xfader assign

Admittedly, I see Xfader assign and cue, so that's handy, but without assignable buttons for clip launch, arm record and mute, it's not the solution for me...

this and 2 trigger fingers. one on each side in place of the turntables/CDJs...

If the price is right this might be my setup.

this is from the korg site:

-The ZERO8 has a total of 122 mappable controllers when being used as a control surface!

-The Controller section has four assignable buttons and eight assignable push/encoders for total realtime control over effects parameters and much more.

-- color coding gives a lot of feedback for the knobs. If the input type was set to MIDI then all controls would show blue and could be mapped to CC#'s to control softsynths and DAW parameters on your computer.

This is looking better and better - anyone find a price? because I need to know how much to start saving!

Yeah, I'm guessing $1800-2000 easy.

Korg tends to hit lower price points with their more recent stuff. I'd say $1400 US street. No doubt won't be as solid as an Allen-Heath unit but hopefully good none the less!
