I picked one up from a friend, gently used, a few months ago. It sat on touched on my desk for nearly all of that time while I dithered over controllers that I’m taking to a festival in Europe in July. Yesterday at noon I sat down with it for the very first time, without opening the manual, and by 6 PM I had a full concert rig running like a champ.
If you haven’t looked into the possibilities inherent in this box, you really should. It’s well-built, responsive, very customizable, easy to set up, feels rugged and comfortable, and has one literally hidden feature that made a huge difference to me. Virtually all of the photographs of it on the Internet, including on the company website, only show it from the top or at an angle. None of them show it upside down, which is how you have to look at it to realize that it’s not a gigantic solid box. It’s actually deeply indented in the center. As a result, it weighs about half as much as you think it should, and it’s very easy to hold in your hand rather than simply sitting on a table.
All in all, well worth a look.
