  1. -I wonder how s@*#t these things can get … I’m sorry bat there is no feeling when it comes to “controlling” music.
    -Somehow I get the feeling that I’m getting old :-)

  2. I really dont understand why fader fox wastes the time building these. No one really buys them. Maybe a handful or so of people in europe. I mean I understand “Form follows function” in this case. But really they could use the time to create a control that does better and is still up to their standards. From a buisness standpoint though It seems pointless to do this.

  3. Yes, pointless market entry that only serves to saturate…atleast he wasn’t doing the ‘these knobs are HOT!’ Motions every time his finger leave a knob…
