The only drawback with this controller is that EuCon doesn’t support parameter feedback to the user created “tabs” in the LCD, only those knobs at the side of the LCD…
I were blown away what EuCon allowed me to do… at first… but then i realized i still had to look att the computermonitor while using functions i customized to perfection… loosing all the creativity by stumbling across functions i made making a f*cking mess of the songs and arrangement… bleh!
What i feel is lacking in the otherwise “near perfect” CC-121 is a way to assinging Insert FX like compressors and such to a button on the controller (i.e softwarecustomizable), and WHY didn’t Steinberg make a more versatile unit by letting all those knobs in the center be freely assignable instead of locking them to the built in EQ, which i doubt many producers use extensively…sigh
With freely assignable knobs and the above mentioned function for opeing and assigning insert FX i would gladly pay for this unit… for me, everything else is spot on for getting “that” workflow.
Imagine having the opportunity to step through every insert-slot and at the same time having the current FX all parameters tied to those EQ-knobs for instant tweakability?
Another pricey unit i really loved is the Nucleus, huge potential but lacking layers for the user to customize…
So yes: i’ll vote for Steiny to come up with some new controller possibly that multifader CC-121 someone made a picture of, aimed towards a professional environment
