Yeah right!

Try to use that when you are a bit drunk or high on stage, and you'll see the result. Few multi controllers to control a lot of parameters can only have bad results.

Also so many lights, colours and blinking can only distract or confuse you. Don't even think of doing acid with it...

Are we trying to ease or complicate things???

are you kidding, that's going to be a blast to play on acid, especially with the trippy lights!

Impressive first product. Cheap but stylish and unique. The stand-alone aspect and programmability are two very strong points. Good luck to them!

M,M,&I, how bout you just program the controls to only operate within pleasing ranges. Not hard to dummy proof something like this. You kids today. I used to run a whole set of live electronics off a standard midi keyboard with a ridiculous amount of splits and workarounds with no LED feedback and nothing for modulation but a couple wheels. Practice, memory, and creative programming made it work.

What this does is bring the hardware up to the capabilities of the software, getting us closer to the kind of expressiveness you get with a traditional instrument. Subtlety in programming is part of the key IMHO. The ability to have slight differences in pitch and filtering alone does a lot towards getting that human feel. Perfect imperfection.

And this is not their first product, they already have a great track record with the SoftStep and other controllers. I'm expecting build quality to be excellent since they are used to developing for the dangerous land of foot controllers.
