Before that, I have not tried a lot of models, but I liked the compact size, while keeping a high number of possibilities, and easy control.
Purchased new in balance DéStock, 2400 € in June 2014, we had a lot of problems the first time to use a small Titan Vaio laptop. The app turned pretty good, but a problem launching asked to re-license the software each time you restart the PC. For a short time, we invested in a PC windows 7 touch dedicated solely to lighting with our Titan Mobile (this is not also a beast of competition ...) and NO MORE PROBLEMS!
Titan software is very well thought out! Once the pallet of colors, positions, gobos and beam shapes are created, everything goes very fast and it is a pleasure to create scenes.
We do not have a large stock of equipment to manage but still use two DMX lines, and this is a perfect console for managing small events & resources.
We are currently working on a musical. We comply with 500 rooms, and control lighting or Auto Trad not pose any problem.
That said, it still fails beaches fader to control lighting Trad live, regardless of the show.
On Shapes & Effects included in the software, I was a little amazed that we can do with the pixel map, but at the same time, it fails effects on shapes color / dimmer (unless I have not found yet ...).
Last thing for the creation of fixtures does not exist in the database (which would still be relatively up to date and well stocked) IS A CALVARY !!! The Avolites personality builder is very difficult to handle. And when you think you understand everything there is still problems, which often end up resolving themselves. In short, some work to do on that yet!
On the price / quality ratio, I find it quite good! Without breaking the bank and having to buy the TigerTouch was a small and relatively powerful system by its possibilities.
With experience, of course, I would rather choose a console that is still essential and pose fewer problems with respect to the PC, however for small business grants and, if the budget allows the purchase of a touchscreen PC + TM rather than a DMX console multifunctionality low end, do not hesitate!
