Hot on the heels of their amazing new Plugstation, Kenton have now released the CONTROL FREAK LIVE. This latest addition to the Control Freak (see forthcoming review) range has 16 knobs instead of sliders and 8 buttons, plus a further 8 buttons available by using shift - all the functionality of the Control Freak Studio Edition, but at the same price and with the compact size of the Control Freak Original. The Control Freak Live is available to purchase now.
While they're at it Kenton have added several exciting new features to the Control Freak with a software update. These include a scene memory (256 scenes), a program erase function and a control channel which allows you to change the Freak's internal program location from a MIDI master keyboard using program change commands. All new Freaks ship with these features as standard, and software upgrade chips for older units are available for 15.00 pounds Sterling + VAT.
