    Default Why do NI knobs/encoders feel so awesome?

    seriously, do they make custom knob post or potentiometers or whatever?

    I seriously want just a 4 channel mixer made by NI, but JUST the mixer section.

    I love my scs.1m and all bc of all the functionality but the whole thing originally came out at something like $1200, but it doesnt have the feel of a $200 X1..

    Are there knob/posts/whatever they're called that have the feel of the X1?

    I think it's because the knobs are rubberized. When comparing rubberized knobs from NI vs. other rubberized knobs (say, Kontrol X1 vs. VCI-100 SE), I can't say that the NI product has the better ones.

    I rate some of the Denon gear, it should be alongside the quality of the NI knobs

    I love a good rubber coated knob.

    I love the slogan they have on the one at the student pub on the campus in exeter, just says 'roger more' written in condoms

    Come on NI. Make a 4 channel mixer/transport control style midi controller free from jog wheels and extra fluff.
