    looks very nice not really aesthetically but it looks like it has some capabilities but for the price egh probobly better off buying an analogue mixer and some x1's or 1d's

    From the website,

    152 Led's different colors to display various informations

    but I don't think they're going to sell very many of them at $1600!

    Woouuu
    I don't really like the design (faderbox style)...the blue lighting buttons are missing compared to the prototype version... only small leds around the buttons...

    but what a huge number of controls, it's crazy !!!!! total control for each 4 channel with direct access...(4 fx controls....!!) and the unit seems to be very solid... 4 band Eq ?!

    price is very high but I think it's top quality

    will to try this monster

    Yeah the prototype looked well nice but I don't like this version - and it's totally overpriced in my opinion.

    What a shame, I'd been waiting for news on this controller ever since the first Youtube clip appeared but now the details are out, it looks ridiculously overpriced compared to the S4. The control layout isn't particularly "clever" in my opinion either - too many buttons and too busy, they seem to have just mapped every available Traktor control to a button/knob without thinking about ways to make better use of space or to do something a bit innovative - e.g. the S4's loop length knob/display.

    The S4 isn't perfect by any means either, but it's more interesting than this.

    I'm still not totally sold on the idea of one huge integrated controller though - all well and good if you only use it in your studio, but once you start playing out in clubs, it's going to be tricky unless something (e.g. the S4) becomes an industry standard (which I can't imagine it will - it's a bit too toy-like in the photos), most places I've played at have struggled to fit in a laptop and a BCR2000, never mind something 50x30cm. I'm still more interested in doing interesting things with smaller controllers and e.g. my (not spent enough time with it as a controller to figure out how big a loss the lack of tactile controls is, but I can think of some pretty interesting layouts, and as long as you have a proper mixer/MIDI controller for volume and EQ, I think it might be OK).

    Rant over

    Oh yeah, and the styling looks horrid - always thought Faderfox stuff looked really ugly. Such a shame, I did think it might be the controller of my dreams!

    Protoype ported into open source has been a win, ported into Faderfox is a FAIL (imho).
