they're kind of fragile... yeah, i'm usually fishing in my gear bag for knobs that fall off when i unpack after a gig, but i really like the pressure sensitive pads... find them very useful for generating control signals during performances.

What software are you using with it? Is it not sending midi signals or dropping midi in the middle of things?

and have you tried configuring it with m-audio's enigma program? mine would get wishy-washy before i went in and told it what to do. sometimes you gotta assert yourself among the machines :wink:

Trying using a USB hub with it. Plug in the USB hub, then plug your trigger finger and whatever other midi devices you use(if any else) in too. Should straighten it out a bit.

Korg Nano Series is pretty useful in any situation.

The Novation Nocturn looks useful but the Akai APC, oh christ that looks awesome.
