"Its benefit is its draw back....Gladly returned it to B&H n bought Taktile- the best hybrid keyboard....So though I was happy I could play piano witn iPhone- it is so small that I rather record my melody ideas on piano apps....May be iRig is good for no players or DJs but not a pro gear for live n studio performance."

"Great choice for a beginner!...The MPK Mini has velocity sensitive drum pads, with a great price tag, but there was no control function with Ableton Live....I was flip flopping between the Akai MPK Mini and the Akai APC 25, but then discovered that the Launchkey Mini was the best of both worlds....The Launchkey Mini blows both of them out by having the ability to control Ableton Live and launch clips with Incontrol, keeps the velocity sensitive pads, and is a really affordable price for how much it's capable of."

The Hot Hand USB from Source Audio is designed to bring the functionality of Hot Hand control to your DAW or MIDI-compatible host sequencer, allowing you to control parameters within Ableton Live, Logic Pro X, Pro Tools, and more with a wave of your hand—as a conductor would influence an orchestra from the podium. The implementations for this are vast, from quickly achieving effect modulations in the studio, to influencing tracks live, visibly and in the moment, during a DJ set. One can imagine that the implications of this live technique are aesthetic as well as functionally creative: Gestures and dance moves can now impact—and moreover, be seen to impact—a live performance.

The ring-worn accelerometer works just like traditional Hot Hand devices, changing assignable effect parameters along a 3-axis plane. Thus, moving your hand in one direction can modulate a specific effect, while moving it in another can affect an entirely different parameter. The USB device plugs into your computer or compatible host sequencer and translates the motion-sensing control into MIDI messages.

The whole setup can be configured and worked to your liking with an included software editor, which allows you to select specific ring axes, adjust the range and depth of modulation, assign control signals for MIDI, choose MIDI-message types, and more. Indeed, with this software, you can change MIDI modes as well, accessing Continuous, Trigger Single, or Trigger Double, explained in the feature section. An included AC power supply charges the Li-ion battery nestled within the Hot Hand’s ring, giving you 6 hours of run time off a 1.5 hour charging period. No drivers are necessary to run the Hot Hand USB with Mac or Windows computers.

The Behringer X-TOUCH EXTENDER is a MIDI controller suitable for both studio and live applications, allowing you to forego the mouse in favor of a more traditional, console-based approach. It can complement your existing X-TOUCH Universal Control Surface, or it can connect to your host computer all on its own.

The X-TOUCH EXTENDER provides eight faders, and each fader gives you a rotary control, an LCD scribble strip, and a set of control buttons (select, mute, solo, and record arm are offered). Furthermore, each motorized and touch-sensitive fader gives you a 100mm throw, while the rotary control up top provides a 13-segment LED collar to show you your exact placement of specific, selectable parameters (for instance, panning). Other visual indicators abound, such as 8-segment LED metering on every channel, clip indicators, and colorful scribble strips with easy-to-read parameter displays.

The X-TOUCH EXTENDER supports standard MIDI control protocol, as well as Mackie Control and HUI. Thus, it may be used with every compatible piece of music-production software. It is compatible with Mac and Windows computers. The unit can also function as a USB hub, with two USB 2.0 ports that supply 5V of power. Through these ports, you can grow your setup with additional X-TOUCH Extenders or the X-TOUCH Universal Control Surface. A full license of Tracktion—a fully functional DAW—is included with this device.
