    Novation Launchpad - "Not quite as simple as it looks"

    09/08/11

    Features. Well it's very basic here. It's a USB midi controller for Ableton. 64 buttons. How it works is another feature entirely. In essence, you can control almost any aspect of Ableton with this device using a bit of clever programming and so…

    Digidesign C24 - "Ridiculous control surface"

    06/17/11

    The Digidesign C24 is one of the ultimate control surfaces out there. Simply put, it has pretty much everything you can think of and then some. Starting off with features, this thing has 24 bankable strips, touch-sensitive motorized faders, 16 high…

  • Akai MPD24

    Akai MPD24 - "Almost perfect."

    05/03/11

    What I like most about the MPD 24 is the super great feeling knobs on this machine. I know that the most important aspect should be the pads, but I will get to those. The knobs are endless encoders and feel like they belong on a unit three times th…

    Akai MPD24 - "Quality Product. Good Choice. "

    04/04/11

    Great for bangin out some drums, samples, or whatever you choose to put on the pads. It’s even a pretty useful midi controller when you take advantage of the faders and knobs. I got a great product for the price, which isn’t too bad either. …

  • PreSonus FaderPort Classic

    PreSonus FaderPort Classic - "The basic needs"

    12/24/10

    I've had it for three weeks. I just looked at the bcf 2000, but I did not need as many faders. I like: the motorized fader, the fact that it takes little room, the whole "all in one" concept, its simplicity, robustness, its look. I dislike: having…
