You seem to have confused the s8 with the kontrol-s keyboards on that last video. Not the same ting.
Thanks for the feedback!
The term “all-in-one” gets thrown around too much these days.. If you need a computer to use it; it is NOT “all-in-one”.
Totally agree. When and if they do come up with an “all in one” controller, I would definitely be interested, and wouldn’t be bothered by a high price tag either.
NI hardware has the worst build quality ever. It’s basically made to last until the next big DJ revolution comes out …
And I wonder how well crafted the firmware & drivers are?
Some real ugly issues with Maschine MkII – known issues to NI that aren’t about to get fixed.
Very cautious about purchasing any hardware from NI in future.
I’m sure they will continue to support and develop this, much like they did the Kore controller, into the far, far future.
