Love it!

Nice rubbery buttons that have a good tactile feel to them and the LEDs are surprisingly bright which didnt seem to be conveyed in the video or others I have seen.

I didn't think much of the bundled version of Live and it wasn't able to (Ableto ? Ableton?) use complex warped clips. Still, a good freebie.

Works excellent with Live 8 also.

All thats required now is an Abletenuri-on Max For Live instrument :)

As much as I like pads.

How the F, if you had every pad triggering something, is anyone going to remember all that?

Lack of velocity sensitivity is a feature. Now I understand! Seriously, as long as they are up front about it. Novation does not need to apologize at that price point. Looking forward to the MKII version with velocity sensitivity for those few musicians who might use such an option.

not being velocity sensitive is good? um ok.

You misunderstood Velocipede, flux302. Read his post more carefully.

It's a massive relief to learn that the MKII version will include velocity sensitivity. This is imperative for any real musician.

And I just realized I misunderstood Velocipede as well. You were referring to a completely different controller.


I was actually excited about this device. Without velocity sensitivity in SOME form (make some of the pads velsens, or toggleable velsens, or a firmware upgrade, or a new version - READ NOVATION - I AM HAPPY TO PAY FOR IT), this is not something I will be adding to my studio.

The search for the ever-elusive, perfect controller continues.
