    their price-politic is awkward but i like the controllers also, looks nice.

    but i am afraid that i don't have too much money so that i don't know where to spend, so it will be just for snobby rich-kids or artists which are already earn a good amount of money out of their performances.

    its nice - not sure about the two bottom rows of buttons - so many - would need an overlay to label. looks like they can be colour coded though too.

    price doesn't surprise me at all.

    I was really considering the livid block but this would make a better sequencer while maintaining usable drum pads and a control surface. There's just something about the block though that attracts me just as much or just under this new livid "cntrl:r"

    Sure the pads arent as big a say maschine or even the akai midi controllers but people enjoy the launch pad for making music, don't see why this can't satisfy either

    Price is fair for the amount of control and feedback you get and how well it could adapt for both Ableton and Traktor.
