  1. The keys on this thing are superb (on a midi controller)! Pads are ok, knobs are nice.
    All in all I would have say that this controller is worth the money.I love it!

  2. I actually got the 25-key version about a week or so ago, and I like it a lot! I echo Tvirus’ comments on the keys. For some reason Live doesn’t want to let me update to 8.2.7 though 🙁

  3. Bought it, returned it day later. Looks cheap, feels cheap, well it is cheap so can’t expect the same quality as Remote SL I guess.

  4. Whappen to sonicstate? Nick got snuffed by industry goons and they installed a sales robot instead?
    There’s really really really really nothing that could go wrong with this amazing offering then? I’m flabbergobsmacked beyond becomprehension!
