    Well, I had the pleasure of reviewing one, but for me it was an overrated experience.
    Too much money for too little.

    Sure built quality was awesome, sure the faders felt great, but somehow it kept missing out on something. (And send me crying back for my BCR!)

    But hey, that's me.

    If you want to go and buy one, try it out before purchasing. Only you should be the judge when deciding to buy the controller!

    It's the overall look and feel when operating, that was a bit of a let down for me.

    I have one and I'm very happy with it. As mentioned already, the build quality is very good. I also like the way the lay-out looks like a mixer. Keep in mind that the knobs in the mixer area (EQ, filter, sends) are a little bit close to eachother. I have the filter and send knobs mapped as FX, so when I'm using multiple knobs at a time, it can get a bit crowded, but definately not unbearable.
    Overall, I'm very pleased with the mixer. Although I got it for a bargain (500 euro for a showroom model, never used), the 800 euro they're asking for it at the moment is fair for what you get I think.
    It really depends on what you're looking for. I was looking for a mixer with a lot of midi functions, or a midi-controller with a mixer lay-out. My choice was between a Korg Zero4 or the Vestax VCM-600. I heard that there were a lot of problems with the DSP chips in the Zero4, and because I was not afraid of going fully digital, I went with the VCM-600 and haven't regretted it one bit...
    Check out my work!
