Subject: [fruityloops] Re: Midi controller = sweet goodness > Thanks for the info. 8 knobs eh? That's impressive ;) AND a keyboard ... whaddya want for $130.00 bucks? Besides, with Fruity's "learn" mode of assigning knobs, it is very easy to switch the knobs between parameters .. Maybe eight knobs isn't much for a live performance, but I only have two hands, so in the confines of my bedroom, with a little time to work, eight is twice as many as I ever really use at one time... Native instruments make a wicked little unit with TWO super-smooth, super sensitive knobs .. Honestly - this thing is nice - it is so small and light you could easily carry it around in a backpack.. My dream is a sooped-up laptop, one of those keyboards and me sitting on the beach kicking out the tracks. Well... maybe not the beach (too sandy), but under a tree, on a bus, backpacking around Europe ... whatever .... Ah to dream!
