"get it while it's hot."
the only thing i wish this had was the drumpads they put in the new, smaller, SL Compact. other than that, amazing.
not applicable
automap. it's amazing. period.
Ease of Use
it is somewhat confusing to set up at first, but definitely worth the time to sit down and read the manual.
very sturdy little piece of kit.
a little on the expensive side, but if you want a fully fledged controller with automap, this is the way to go. for those with a tighter budget, check the SL Compact.
Manufacturer Support
heard great things about their support, but no experience first-hand.
The Wow Factor
very sexy.
