    I purposely bought a DAW with an old school control surface so I don't find this earth-shattering in any way. Mine has a big enough screen to see what I need to see and I prefer to touch and use real controls, sliders and pots. Feels right to me.

    If you're going to use an old school setup as the template, why not just offer the real thing? It's like a circle jerk...goes round and round.

    Here's my Yamaha AW2400, it has 24 tracks and can be found for $600-$800 used now.

    It exists. It's called V Control and it has worked very well for me. Great to be able to tweak mixes from across the room

    Thanks! Checking this out now...

    It looks very cool - I'm also reading good things about DAW Remote HD, and that one is only $15.00. Hmm... :hmm:

    I'm more impressed by the iRig Pro I think.

    While I can see some advantages with this, I had a recording rig several years back with a touchscreen monitor for DAW controls... It's just not the same as having mechanical faders under your fingertips...

    It certainly didn't need all the hype Musicians Friend created.

    No. $2500 for a multi-touch monitor. Equally as stupid, when you can get one of those for under $500...

    who the fvck wants a touch pad fader:facepalm:

    touch screen problem?
    forgot about the mix or turning off that feedback.

    i guess future generation will not share the joy of sliding up a SSL console fader...



    edit: holy fvcking molly that POS doesn't even have preamps!!! so what you buy is actually a huge expensive touch screen.

    It's just like the thing they have at Burger King where they punch in your order.

    I have nothing against digital recording and I would love to own an old SSL or Neve board, but sadly I don't have the budget or the room for one. I like the idea of being able to manage basic transport chores remotely over an iPad for $50.00, but the idea of spending $2500.00 on a big touch screen mixer is laughable. At that point why not buy a nice Mackie controller with motorized faders?
