This is a pretty good contender as being a much liked mixing controller. It has some decent "freebies" it comes with to work out of the box and it isn't too hard to setup in most DAWs. The one thing I really wished it could do (or more easily integrate with), is work with other Plugin companies. Still though, I really love this thing and use it on every project. Using a mouse and keyboard can be tedious and really time consuming, but what this does is it gives you the feel of having a multi-track console, and the ability to adjust on the fly, without the expense or needing to draw automation and use your mouse and keyboard to dial it all in. This helps shave a lot of time off my mixing. It was one of the best purchases I made in my studio in a while. If Softube ever decided to branch out and work with other plugin providers, I think this would really be a no brainer for a lot of people, especially those without the means to be able to get their hands on say a Neve. Something to think about.
