First Off, this is an awesome controller. It has 8 motorized faders with encoder knobs above them. The encoder knobs can be assigned to different functions using the "Encoder Assign" section. This controller also has built in transport controls, with a large knob for moving the playhead. The only thing I don't like about this controller is the fact that it is not recognized by Apple's Mainstage 3, So i am unable to use it for mixing my livestreams.
