    Dude, that's insane. Be cool if it became the norm with a reasonable price. ONe can dream right?

    Personally I'm a bit tired of foot controllers based on 30+ year old technology! (Yes I'm serious)

    I'd be very surprised if that came in under $900.

    Very cool but more than I would ever spend for a MIDI controller.

    ...wellit must be at max at the same price point of the MFC101 in order to compensate for the lack of an Axe-Mode with the extra features...

    my honest opinion is that i dont like it one bit...its too big and bulky....the screen is too small....its must weight a ton...the letters for the presets looks too small. They need to make the design more appealing...at least to me it looks to square and cold.

    It's just an early prototype. I'm quite sure the finished production units will be much more refined. If you read the second link I posted, you'll see that RJM has been testing several different types of touch screens & each have their advantages & disadvantages.

    Looks like it would put my Ground Control Pro to shame.

    thats just a proto. Ive have seen and know whats coming from RJM and it will be ground breaking. The question will be if it can be brought in at a decent price

    Yes, that is definitely just a prototype - we wanted to have something to show at NAMM, and there was only just enough time to get it up and running. The final product will definitely look a lot better.

    No, it's not going to be cheap, but it really is going to raise the bar on power and ease of use in MIDI controllers. It's too early to be able to quote a price, but we'll have it on our site as soon as possible. We're looking at a release date toward the end of this year.

    For those interested, we have a blog and forum on our site where I'll be posting updates as things progress.
