    Default What discontinued controller/gear would you like?

    We live in a time were in almost every aspect of our lives is growing at exponential rates.
    The new and cool trends come to replace the old antique corky stuff at a very high speed.
    Many companies have ceased to existed, some merged and some changed their approach to the market resulting in ths discontinuation of various pieces of equipment.
    However in this domain of forgotten products there are a few crown jewelry items.
    Some people are lucky to own some of these while others are craving that they are produced again so that they also get their hands on them.

    The question is simple.
    What controller, gear, equipments, etc that has been discontinued would you love to have back in full production? And why?

    Personally I would love to see again:
    Evolution UC-33e
    Why? Its cheap and accesible price, its versatille interface which can suit a studio and live setup and high programabilty.
    Korg Microkontrol & Kontrol49
    Why? Great metal quality build with lots and lots of controls, faders, encoders, light pads, keys, pitch and modulation, banks, lcd display.
    Korg Zero 8
    With korg trend in going nano and ultra portable they forgot of many of their great product such as the zero8.
    Full 8 stereo channel mixer, with firewire, usb, analog, digital, midi, effects, soundcard. great look and almost every button is customizable letting you to integrate the digital & analong world perfectly

    Technics 1200 series. No explanation needed.

    I'm sure there are mixers I would like. Ive always thought the vestax PCM Carl cox was neat and wanted to give it a try.

    Strictly controllers?

    Alesis Master Control. If it worked. Only recently saw it, and it's about the best thing I can think of for DAW control if it worked…and a lot cheaper than the Avid/Euphonics Artist stuff and the right kind of more limiting than the Mackie MCU Pro. Again…if it worked.

    Other than that, the Technics sl-1200, though I understand why Panasonic did it. And the PMC-CX……probably the most gorgeous mixer ever.

    Are we limited to DJ gear?

    Because obviously there is a massive amount of synths, drum machines, samplers, etc that I would love to see back.

    I don't believe it was the sound card as much as it was floor noise from the DACs. Also they arent built very solidly, had problems with both my Zero8 and now a 4 (although I suspect the 4 was not taken care of very well by its previous owner).

    Would definitely take another one though
    Cheers!
