"Great idea, poor execution."

I tried Console i MKII using Studio One V,3 and V.4. The hardware is fine, although I had issues with it interfering with USB communications. The software sounds fine, but not spectacular. The controller does not update the plug-in to tracks selected via mouse. The plug-in does not read / learn names of tracks, you have to enter manually. The track number buttons on controller pertain only to the instances of the plug-in, not to the track number in the DAW. In other words if your first instance of the plug-in is on Track 17, you have to push 'track 1' on the controller, not 'track 17'. That is why the tell you to put the plug-in on every channel, so the numbers line up. The encoders are pretty stiff, although that makes them precise. Over all, great idea, well made hardware, but software (as of August 2018) not up to speed yet.
Mostly rock, but anything that comes in.
