  1. For sure! I could put something together. And hopefully I could get a lot of input from everyone. I'll DM you
  2. Someone should make a website, sticky forum post or database of all the software and hardware that companies have decided not to support anymore… maybe call it the Pro Audio Graveyard or something. I know this kind of info can be found by googling. But this would be a nice consolidated resource to see which companies are just all about the dollar bill. Just a thought Would definitely help customers make more informed decisions on what products to buy and which companies to support.
  3. Not that I’m aware of. I think they keep that in-house.
  4. Yep! I’ve been keeping an eye on those. Might just get one for the right price
  5. Good to know. Sounds interesting. As for faders, unless they’re recallable/motorized, it’s literally just a weird experience(for me, at least… I’ve got those faders on my Arturia 61 keys). Also, for such a compact and portable product, I can only imagine those faders breaking off at some point if you transport in a not-so-secure backpack.
  6. If Arturia didn’t add the faders, I’d be all over this. I could use a portable controller. Endless rotary encoders are waaay more useful than faders IMO.
  7. I’m currently invested in Arturia(and Korg). I own the Keylab Essential 61 MKII and it’s my main controller. Kinda irked by how soon the MKIII was released. But, no biggie. It seems as though Arturia maintains and updates drivers for all their old products pretty well. Time will tell. When I was looking for a new midi controller, one of the main factors was longevity(how long a company updates drivers) and an “undo” button(sounds basic, but critical for me). I was basically looking for the RME of midi controllers. From the little research that I did, I found that Korg, Arturia and Nektar ticked that box. If memory serves me correct, Novation too. For reference, my Korg KONTROL49 was from the mid-2000s. It’s just amazing that Korg has maintained drivers to this day. That really makes me gravitate to their products more. One of the things that turns me off about NI gear is that you have to fill-out a form to transfer ownership. Not a big deal for some, but for me it is. If you buy NI gear used/secondhand w/o transfer of ownership, everything still works… it just doesn’t show up on your NI account(for potentially discounted sw upgrade perks and free sw downloads). Stay away from M-Audio like the plague. I’ve purchased a few of the controllers over the years. They don’t maintain their drivers. Luckily, I’m a windows user. So, I’m able to use old drivers on Win 10/11. Be wary of which company you buy your next USB product from ⚠️
  8. I think you made the right decision in going with NEKTAR. They don't have too many product offerings. And their bread-and-butter are midi controllers. So, I'm pretty sure they'll keep updating their drivers for years to come.
  9. That's a bummer. Out of curiosity, what other dead hardware do you still have? Me... I paid about 1200 dollars for a brand new M-Audio Projectmix I/O in 2006... amazing control surface. Drivers are definitely not updated anymore. It's a glorified doorstop now, lol 😬

    Sweet freebie 👍
  12. Yeah, might want to sell it while it has some value. Less of a headache later on.
  13. Dang, I miss my KORE soundpacks. NI makes some of the best HW and SW, but sometimes they just end up not supporting them any more. Too lazy to update their software/drivers, they want you to spend money on their latest gear =/ Money rules, customers drool 😢
