    I don't post outside Tech Talk often BUT I thought it time to venture out once more and especially since the reshuffle and forum renaming.

    Many of you may know of this site.
    Is anyone here an active member there ?

    While surfing there recently I found this link in their forum.

    Does anyone know about this and what do you make of it ?

    As for accessories in general.

    Do any on you guys have handy little units that you just can't live without ??
    One that caught my eye was this ...
    (Dead Link Removed)
    Not sure I have a use for this right now one but still, it did catch my eye.
    I am looking for a MTC and Song Pointer display. Large enough to be seen across the studio floor ... or small enough to be put on the music stand.

    I may have to make one ... see the original site above.
    added to that could be a visual metronome thingo.
    Probably just midi to LED converter so I can write a midi sequence to suit the rhythm of the track.
    Perhaps arrange the LEDs in a V pattern with a different and brighter colour at the point for the downbeat.
    Suggestions please.

    I don't know if this is what your talking about, but I'd love to get hold of some USB or MIDI device capable of starting the Pro Tools LE transport. So just a transport remote really, can't justify the expense of Mackie HUI or digi's Command 8.

    I guess it does fit the profile.
    However it is not directly what I had in mind.
    It annoys me that this type of thing isn't already in great supply as this is something I'm sure many people would be interested in.

    The Shuttle Pro my just be the trick for your needs.

    Korg have just released a controller and although it doesn't directly have transport controls, the buttons might be programmable.

    EWvolution have a number of controllers but I'm noty sure that any of them have transport controls.

    Digidesign have a new entry level controller which does look and feel cool but I don't know the cost.

    Excellent, Thanks fot that. If that shuttlepro is compatible with PT LE (Win XP) then that's exactly what I'm after, and like you said surely it could be programmed as a transport control. :D

    I think you will find that both of their products have good support in XP with PT5 and PT6.
