    Something tells me that I doubt we would ever see that unless NI really starts getting into financial trouble. NI created this infrastructure so make us addicted to it and NEED the hardware.

    Thankfully it's not 2005 anymore so there are more players in the game so maybe that will push NI to give their users a bit more than they have been.

    I'm curious where this "3rd party" rumor came from.

    The last days i the Akai Fire. It is the oposite to Maschine. FL Software is top notch. But the controllertested is Not well implemented. So nothing for me. I stay with Maschine.

    Any particular area where you feel it falls short? Or you just didn't like that you need to use keyboard/mouse a ton more than with Maschine?

    It's a great thing that FL got it's first (official) controller, but I gotta admit that JAM demo was good af. damn :eek:

    the controller is too cumbersome, far too many two button comandos.
    And the controller is too fiddly for my big hands. In addition, I am faster with mouse and keyboard (also in machine). Using the mouse and the keyboard does not bother me. That was natural since I used FL from the beginning. It was rather that I had to force myself to use the controller. Also, I work almost exclusively with the piano roll in FL, but this is supported rudimentarily. I mean, the FL piano roll is the most extensive one ever integrated into a DAW. And the controller limits these possibilities to a minimum. FL supports the best features of the controller only rudimentary or not at all. All in all a nice entry for beginners who do not know FL yet.
