Best in it's price range!
Pros: It was a quick set up, i had it running within protools in under 30 minutes. Motorized faders for 8 tracks, the ability to link with other control surfaces via midi. It appears to be durable (if treated properly) and is lightweight. It's also a small footprint, making it ideal for a studio on the go! This thing has great qualities given that it's under $200.00.
Cons: loud faders (fortunately no sound runs through the board so as long as you have a decent set of monitor speakers/headphones it's no big deal. The faders also sit kinda high (0db isn't halfway on the fader track). Doesn't have a transport control or a jog wheel.
Other Thoughts: Honestly i had to jump on this deal because it works with both pro tools and logic, its separate from my interface (so i can use whatever i want). It also is the only control surface in this price category that has both 8 faders and the ability to write automation. Good compromise for those who want the control of say a d-command or digi 003 (which is no longer available new).
