  1. At currents rates that's like what $150 usd ? They look like excellent controllers as well.
    iCon please get some Windows 7 64-bit drivers going. I don't wanna have to run these on feeble single core XP machines, or worse yet skip them altogether because of a lack of OS support.

  3. Actually Icon is really, i mean really cheap construction. Dead keys, cheap off-axis connection and very poor quality usb cable. Maybe i was not lucky on that one but…

  4. I've seen the i-key, i-pad and i-controller in the flesh, and they look very poorly designed. I can't say whether they perform badly or not, but lookswise they're certainly ugly imitations of other gear.

  5. Be carefull if you want to buy this I- stage/creative/DJ because, if you know what your doing you can handle them, but if you never ever worked with such MIDI-controllers… well it's not as "plug and play" but more like "Plug and Pray"
    Further, i'm working with the icon ipad and icontroller, and i'm glad i bought it!!
    As i said, when you know what your doing, it's like a dream-controller!

  6. i really want to use the istage with reason5 and my mpd32 i need more buttons for more control. all live drumming and drone plus tons of fx. 64 buttons for triggering samples and other things. i own a nano pad and it”s kinda finicky. i hope the istage is a little more reliable. i checked out the software and it seemed similar to the korg editor software.
