I think this will become a dinosaur very fast. I would not spend money on something like that. IMO, here's the future (for controllers anyway: touch-screen): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iKSXPsLJ ... r_embedded

I do not see the controller taking off at all (the touchscreen one). why waste money on that when you can get a multitouch lemur controller?

I think those computers for daw use are cool, but they are very overpriced and also... what happens when your hardware is outdated? In a computer you can simply swap a part, here I doubt you can.... Another flaw is that it's kind of poorly laid out. I would much rather have one of those mc like groove boxes that you can hook up a monitor to.... or for example one of those HARDWARE vst hosts sequenced by an electribe or something.

I'm very hardware based and really don't go for many of these controller doodads, but the dragon kind of looked cool. But I'm very against buying anything that doesn't make a sound of its own for some reason. I guess the main reason is that I can always get software to fill in the blanks.

look at some videos of jazzmutant's lemur controller. Dexter is pretty cool. They are similar to dragon but a ton better.
