Strictly speaking hardware probably Push 2.

Music Radar just posted an article on the 21 best high end hardware synths on the market.

Just ordered a MOTU Micro Lite MIDI hub so I can add five MIDI ports to my studio desk. But that's just the first step....

I need MIDI ports on the desk so I can move my filter bank and drum machine over to the desk, to make enough room for a fourth row of Eurorack in my studio rack. :lol:
Win7/Intel i7 rig | Live 9.7.5 | Yamaha, Korg, and Novation synths, and 12U of Eurorack | Mackie Onyx 1620i mixer/interface | various outboard gear | Dune 2, Circle2, Enzyme, Kontakt |

I've spent weeks convincing myself I don't need a DSI Pro2, and it's not working very well :(

i just bought a playstation to usb adapter so I'll probably buy some knockoff game pad and figure out a mfl patch to use it. I have no inclination to get a push. doubtless they're great but for me they're too big and heavy

Well after i got rid of all my stuff, I got two korg volcas, the beats and bass, to experiment with when i want to be away from the computer. I'm over my GAS, partially because I'm am so in love with bitwig. To me it's the best computer DAW/sequencer/synthesizer/sampler. Yes they still have work to do in terms of development and refinement. But I'm pretty satisfied with it in terms of its concept, workflow and potential.

Next music gear purchase might be the successor of the Analog Keys from Elekton. Now that they have overbridge, they have my attention. But I really miss the sound of my old Yamaha CS01 so next purchase might be something that can remind me of that sound.

A Push has to be lighter than a playstation though, no?

Actually, I'm just about to start using my latest purchases - a Behringer Xtouch Mini and a Keith McMillen K-board. I've come to realise that a cramped workspace is a big no-no to me, and for a controller to be useful, it needs to fit between me and the computer screen while also accomodating for a mouse and a keyboard. Push is too bulky, so it's been relegated to the back of my desk. I'll set up the Xtouch with some clever ClyphX actions and use it in combination with the K-Board and my Launchpad Mini, which uses NativeKontrol's LPK2 script. I've only just tested the K-Board, which seems like a ton of fun (I kind of half expected it to work two-ways, so that the keys would light up when an existing clip was playing on the active track in Live (as I've grown used to with Push), but, alas.

EDIT: goddammit, the Xtouch is such a piece of crap. Why is it that no one has made a proper compact controller with eight endless encoders and some fricking buttons? The K-board is pure awesomeosity, though!

you know about the DJ Tech Tools Midi Fighter Twister? 16 endless knobs (which have push functionality as well) with led rings around, bank buttons on the side.

I have a MakeNoise Zero Coast on preorder. It'a Buchla-styled analog modular for $500.

Kind of looking at Volca FM. Cheap and cheerful and I like the Beats and Keys I already have.
