Awesome controller !!!

23.01.2016
I use this controller to send MIDI data to Ableton Live and it does the job quite good. This controller has a good quality-price ratio because you have a lot of controls in a small package for a low price !!! Despite the fact that the rotary knobs are short (less than 1 cm) so it is not easy to grab them and that there is no momentary/toggle functionality for buttons in the Midimix Editor software, this controller is very robust (ideal for transport) and gives you a handful of controls (faders, rotary knobs and buttons) for your DAW !!!

Great product

09.10.2015
Midi controls:

Plug and play product (only tried it with ableton live 9), with an ease of immediate midi mapping. In theory, it born as equalizer for channels of daw, but the midi mapping allows you to do everything, also using the mute and rec arm keys you have the ability to control the keyboard midi, having the ability to map anything with all controls the necessary commands at hand, configuring the various knobs and the various fader with your favorite controls.

software:

Download the midimix editor from dell'akai site is easy, not to mention that in the product box you will find a gift ableton live lite, giving the possibility to upgrade to live 9 standard or suite with an additional discount. As for the midimix editor is easy to use and instant understanding: the ability to control the left and right banks can give you total control over your daw (obviously not opening a project with an excessive number of channels).

defects:

The only flaw, volendone find, is the lack of any encoder to be used as a selector and knobs are a bit low, sometimes difficult to make.

conclusions:

Beyond this flaw, it is a product (in my opinion), essential in their set up.
