Which would you be looking at? I'm just curious... I've given some thought lately to having an actual surface from which I could work in a more tactile fashion, as opposed to "mousing" every command, particularly when it comes to the mixing end of things. I'm woefully out of touch with what's out there these days when it comes to control surfaces. I'm not an Avid guy, so I don't see the need in spending multiple-thousands of dollars on what amounts to an overblown - and proprietary - surface for PT, when I don't use PT. I'm using Samplitude ProX Suite, running on the W10 OS. I'd like to keep the budget to around $1800-$2000, and to be able to mix in a more tactile fashion; levels, EQ, etc. as well as having the device act as the central hub for monitoring and I/O; maybe I'm asking for too much for the money I want to spend ? If you were looking at a control surface that could fill these needs,, and this was your budget, which model would you be looking at? I don't really have to have the additional pre's /input channels, but if that was available within that budget, I wouldn't turn away from it, either... so then, does that now open up the range of choices to the possibilities of something more like one of the Presonus StudioLive desks, or, maybe something like the A&H Zed Series? Or ...would you not even try to get something for that low amount of money, and instead, keep biting the bullet with ITB mixing until you could get what you really wanted? And if so, what would that be? If you had, say, $5000 to spend - is there something in particular you'd want in that price range? Thoughts? Suggestions?
