Not just for the Maschine software
I originally purchased this to supplement my Maschine controller, but it actually makes a brilliant control surface for Cubase too. The included Controller Editor allows you to map the buttons to a MIDI CC or MIDI note, and you can also emulate Mackie Control (MCU) too. So for example, I can set the rotary encoder up as a jog wheel and use the sliders to control MIDI CC's for my Kontakt instruments.
Probably the only two downsides are that the lights aren't particularly bright in daylight; my Novation Launchpad Pro is much brighter. And the pads don't have any touch sensitivity. But otherwise, it's a flexible little unit that still serves a purpose even though I've long since abandoned the Maschine software.
