wow, those look like some neat controllers for the price.

That big LCD display looks nice.

I wonder if it accepts CC feedback and/or SysEx sequences to send custom Text to it ? If yes, this would be an extremely good controller to use with Reason (after making a proper Remote Codec+Map for it)

man, I really need to stop lusting over controllers -.-' 8 should be enough by now (or start selling some on eBay).

I've been trying to resist the urge to buy an iPad, investing rather in getting more out of the gear I already have. Then I read something like "the innevitable integration of your iOS device." Ouch. You all really know how to hurt someone.

Is there a soniclab review planned for this contoller? The reviews online are one extreme to another. also like the novation impulse but am not sure it's worth the extra $100.
