My insight

I would have to say it’s a must have if your using any kind of decks. It utilizes the new features that can’t be mapped with a third party controller. And having the loop display length is something we needed back in scratchlive. You could actually rock a gig with just one of these, but to avoid error. I would go with either one of these and a deck. Or just get two afx’s so you don’t have to change pages for the decks.

The pads feel real good, only thing I don’t like is where the touchstrip is located. Trying to pitch bend and have the touch controls on at the same time. Is something you have to get use too.
