I bought the Lv1 internet via a store in Manchester. 200 euros plus the shipment costs by UpS. I use it for two months now.
- What is the particular feature you like best and least?
The particular feature I like most is its small size and its total compatibility on Live. There are some pre-recorded configurations according to our needs and there is no waste of time to set the faders and pots. Everything works smoothly. Faders, 4 buttons ..... what I like most is undoubtedly the small joystick which allows to play on Live effects of original fawn.
what I like least is the little information there was on this product and the fact that it is not in usb, because with my laptop powerbook I have to lug around a midi case in addition to the hook up.
- Have you tried many other models before acqurir?
Before, I mainly used my master keyboard (1 Dirol phr M-1) and to control my microkork Live. This was much more cumbersome. This does not prevent me from even using the combined Lv1, which then makes a maximum of automatiss parameters.
- How do you report qualitprix?
I find the report qualitprix reasonable, although I think this little machine could be less chre. But the quality is at the appointment. The machine robust air, slide faders good (but there are better) the pots are not cheap and it responds my requirements (total compatibility with Live). For the price, they could have put a power adapter, but hey, I was already a .....
- With the exprience, you do again this choice ..?
I can not say too much about it. For the moment, I use it mostly for my Gnral mix (faders) and tweak the effects (especially the joystick hearts I), for the rest, I use my master keyboard. again, I mastered that part of the machine, which I must say, is sometimes a bit complicated because everything is concentrated on very few buttons.
For the price, I do not regret my purchase, but I think a good little master keyboard with pots and faders are largely the case.

Coda's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
I know a lot of us wonder what these three Vallent p'tites machines from Germany. Until a few months to have a user reviews on this site, I was ordered to launch two modules (the LV1 and LX1) and do it myself the exprience. I do not speak here only of the LV1 since it is the one I currently use the most.
After a few per dialects in English (thank you online translators), and a small waiting weeks by taking all options for shipping (20 euros per machine), I received a few days ago the two machines.
Outwardly, it looks smaller than I expected, but if one does not have hands of loggers, all goes well, there's just enough space.
The stuff in looking more prs shows a beautiful finish, the knobs too much junk (but that can be seen especially with time) and robust enough faders. on the other hand, do not find here, finesse and precision of a good mixer fader. (I do not know if it's the same fader on the DJ1, but if so, you must have some strength in the fingers).
By connecting all this on Live, it gets really interesting. I use a Toshiba P4 2.8 Ghz with 1MB of RAM and an M-Audio Firewire card Audiophyle.
The game is really nice, we see that these machines are designed to t Live, the latency is acceptable trs. I use a console dja Tarcktor Hercules, CA s'tait rvler a disaster due to lack of raction of the machine, cuts or dgueulasses impossible.
Here, it is of course not on the precision of an analog desk but I've seen better and more importantly, to control Live, you do not request a Vestax.
It is still regrettable that these modules are delivered with batteries, you can of course connect to mains but that is not provided in the package.
[/ b] How do you report qualitprix?
A priori, the machine for 200 Euros (postage included), it was worth the money. It's small but tough, you should see a APRS use and distance. Mathias, the contact that we have the net is fun and shopping.
I think this is a good solution to control Live importantly, me anyway, I did not get any better, knowing that I have two machines, which I think is the minimum to control the Beast.
