    Not sure if Effects is the right place for this. Has anyone tried the QuNeo? Anyone compared it to the Akai APC 40?

    Never tried the Quneo, but the APC 40 works awesome in Live settings.

    IMO

    Oh no doubt, the APC40 is great. I'm just wondering how the QuNeo compares performance wise. It's $100 cheaper, half the size and has velocity sensitive pads with 4 locations per pad.

    just keep in mind that all those control messages it sends will have to be mapped!

    Mapping is not that hard.

    What I hate about the apc 40 is no template editor, so to re-map controls you have to use a max patch. Other than that it's nice for the price for sure.

    What I hated about it was that the faders where not automated.
    Clear deal breaker & sold it.

    I still have mine, it's pretty comprehensive otherwise.
    And disposable.
    My favorite controller is touch o/c, because it has character feedback so you really never look at the computer....um....
    you look at an ipad instead.... d'oh.
    Ipad is still an amazing touch controller though.
