The combination of almost any type of control:
3 octave keyboard, 8 faders, 8 knobs, 16 pads

12 programmable scenes

And tap tempo

UTILIZATION

The sensitivity of the keyboard seems pretty random and keys are slim.

Endless encoders knob is actually impractical live to advance to the desired value.
The faders are not very good.

The scene setup is practical. A name is assigned to the scene from a defined list. Each fader and knob also has a name from a list. The display above the knob moving indicates ca. The backlight turns orange for a fader, knob and green for a (configurable colors).

Midday configuration can easily from the table by advancing through the menu with the rotary knob and arrows shift octave keyboard. The software works well.

OVERALL OPINION

And not two years of intensive use, the knobs have all passed away and faders become unusable. The values ​​sent are random.

I got it half price at the time (Model Expo) and happily. I would not put € 300 in this machine. Unlike my CME Bitstream 3X still holds up.
Apparently, refurbish components back almost at the cost of the table.
