Maybe so, but it would definatley keep the grilfriend in check AND make M4L devices I tell it too via speach recognition.
true since I already have the apc and a kontrolpad give me the step sequencer stand alone please!n8sum wrote: Even then all these could hold their own as independent devices.
about potentiometers vs encoders.halley wrote:I've often seen the words potentiometers and encoders used

Whatever, what's with all this hate for endless potentiometers...
ehm sorry encoders
if you want to control many parameters and avoid jumps
endless encoders, motorized faders and touch strips/interfaces
are the only ways (...that I know of, but I'll love to learn about something else).
Sure there are a lot of situation where potentiometers (so... non endless)
have a good use: when you often use a single instrument, when you have built
a specific patch, when you 'auto-impose' certain song-set structures in your
workflow, when you have already built a song and you know which are the
parameters you will use more often on stage... still, even in these situations
you often experiment with different parameters and controls until you
reach the setup you want... and in these situations where you are exploring
endless encoders are still more useful then fixed ones, don't you think?
Somebody says that it's about feeling the end of the rotation, but even if
the endless rotation goes on, the controlled parameter doesn't go over the maximum
value you've established for it, so what difference does it make anyway?
Personally, I prefer to use the APC when I'm building a set, choosing devices and parameters,
patching in Max/M4L... even if I'm 100% sure sometimes I'll be forced to use the UC33.
step sequencer built in could be nice.squelcht wrote:Awesome Its funny---I was just imagining of a super modified APC controller the other day & was visualizing there being a 64 step sequencer built in...And now I see this with a 32 step & Im all like BADASS
