I fell in love with this controller from first time I saw the pics from NAMM, it was perfect.
It has everything you would want in a small form factor midi controller.
Then I ordered it, waited...then it arrived. The first thing I noticed was the fake wood sides.
Seriously??? I would have easily paid the $129 price tag, if I knew I was getting actual wood sides not this cheap sauder furniture "faux wood" crap.
Being a wood worker my entire life, I just cannot deal with faux wood.
So I went about and made my own sides out of some mahogany I had around down in the shop.
So, now with actual wood sides I can finally start exploring this new controller.
It might be petty, but to me it made a big difference in how often I now use the controller.
I have big plans to mod the heck out of this controller and make it how I see fit for my use.
I have pics of the complete dis-assembly if anyone is interested.
Here's a pic of the new "real wood" sides.
