This controller is really really nice. It's well built with the hardest plastic possible for a controller which is a better idea because it's not super heavy. It is still heavy enough that it's planted solid on a desk. The design is really well thought out, it's an improvement on previous models for sure. Every button, knob, pad and fader feels solid and the key bed is top notch. I like that there is no wasted space on this. It is just big enough for all the features on it. The documentation is really good as well. The T6 comes with a quick guide and you can also download a more detailed PDF manual on the Nektar website. Last but not least, what makes this controller unbeatable is the software integration. The integration with a DAW has no comparison once you download the file specifically developed for your DAW and install it on your computer. Cubase, Logic, Ableton and others will be happy with this controller. When i start Cubase, the display shows Cubase as it recognizes which DAW I'm using. If you want to go deeper and have it control your other plugins, download Nektarine and you're set. There's just no controller that has thorough integration like this one. Other controllers lean towards specific plugins or DAWs but the Panorama series can be tailored to most major DAWS and plugins. If it cannot, you still have the option of easily mapping controls with the Learn function. The icing on the cake is zZounds customer service. I contacted zZounds about a concern on Sunday read more afternoon and by end of day Monday I had communicated twice by email with an agent and my concern was addressed and i was satisfied.
