Overall Rating 5 (1 reviews)

So far really easy to get along with, the setup part was a breeze. Feels and looks quality. I love not having to reach for the mouse as much and it makes me feel more immersed in what i'm doing. Also, worth adding that SSL will be supporting it with improvements. I'm using it with Pro Tools.
