    I'm excited. I'm dirifting away from PT and happy to announce, Sequoia 11 is being shipped to me.

    If anyone over the next year or so learns of the best controller for Sequoia, please let me know. I've seen Mackie might be the choice but would love to see this topic grow on that.

    I was under the impression that those Euphonix boards are Mac only. Beautiful console though.

    isn't it! I'm told it now supports Sequoia 11 but not Samplitude yet. Not sure why it excludes Samplitude as I thought they were the same core really, excluding some plugins and mastering features.

    Its beyond my needs but isn't it beautiful.

    I need a simple controller. My wrist is getting mouse fatigue.

    have you seen this little gem?

    Sorry. It's a little off topic.

    Thought I'd bump this topic. Are you using a controller with Samplitude?

    I have been using Samplitude since it came out. I have yet to find a good controller for it. I have tried about six different controllers but have yet to find one that works well. Most of the controller have a lag or latency especially when using more than one channel at a time. If I push up three faders one goes up and then the next and finally the last. I will be interested in knowing what you get. I too looked at the EuCon controllers but was told they work with Mac only.

    Kind of makes me wonder if the DAW will ever be what the console gave us. I mean, every time the computer gets up to speed, we increase the processing demands for plug-ins, thus we keep chasing the the dogs tail.

    I imagine touch screens and Tablets are going to the next substitute. Which I hate because its just more artificial light.
    During a recent eye exam the doctor told me he is seeing teenagers with eyes worse than people in the 60's. He said its related to Smart Phones. If I spend more than a few minutes on mine, my eyes are screwed. Tablets = cool world? I'm not so sure anymore.
    Naturopathic Studies predict the next 20 years there are going to be a lot more brain cancers directly related to all this wireless technology. But is so damn fun I say!

    Have you jumped up to Sequoia 12, Thomas?
