Control Surface Time

    Hi folks
    I'm moused out and need a control surface for PT. I do not want something as big as Control 24 or Pro Control and I'm planning to stay within the PT Mix domain for the foreseeable future.
    I read Kevin's point that HUI has a higher than usual midi fader resolution-so that could be worth a look. I don't really want to be paying for mic-pre's that I don't intend to use. So that's a downer on the HUI for a start. I read on the DUC that the SAC 2K is a bit flaky- shame as it looks cool. I don't want the Motormix as it's clunky appearance also matches it's apparent touch insensitivity. I want to be able to work withplug-inson the controller-will this be possible? SSC? Soft synths in the background plumbed in via Direct Connect?
    I really don't know what's possible? Can you cut and paste audio with these units?!!
    Any advice massively appreciated :)

    Thanks

    I hate you guys! :)

    Of course I dream of Pro Control but now I'm a-hoping my dealer is correct in informing that Logic Control will be PT ready this summer.
    An expandable HUI for £999. Ha Ha.
    So you know what you can do with yer Vegas Mode!!

    I think you should at least get hold of a SAC-2k and try it....I had one for a week and it was NOT flaky....everything worked like it should.

    Or you can wait for an upcoming HUI profile for the Logic Control...which will be the BOMB for $999!!

    Hi Renie.
    I don't know whether you've seen it, but in the
    February 2002 issue of Mix magazine there's a feature article "Complete Control" which reviews and discusses features of many of the current
    "New Work Surfaces for DAW-Based Mixing". Might help.
    Kind regards
    Stedel

    Maybe I'll give the SAC a go then it certainly looks nice but yes the logic Control could be The One, thanks.
    No i haven't seen that thanks for the tip.

    Hi Stedel

    I was experiencing a touch of RSI but since rearranging how I work, sit etc it's been fine, so a control surface is not a priority now.
    If I was going to buy one the Logic control looks the best bang for the buck at this point. Hopefully by the time I get a control surface the market will have got even better!
    Thanks
    Renie
