Access Analog were at the NAMM show this year, showing off their Analog Matrix. This is analog hardware that is being control via a plugin over the internet. Access Analog provide a service where you can download their plugin for free and then pay for time on specific pieces of hardware.
At about $6 an for half an hour on one piece, we think thats pretty reasonable.
