  • Web Based desktop applications that control hardware are cancerous. And yes, I'm looking at you both I-Cue and G Hub.

  • The company should learn from your ideas resend you a new and improved unit and then hire you after the fact because they don't know what they are doing and likely lost 10,000 sales due to just this video. But some CEOs have no clue +1 . Great Video DONT BUY, DONT BUY .. and i won't buy .

  • The wheel is enough for me to not get it for video. I want to love colored screens/buttons but NOTHING comes close to my JLCooper stuff. Give me at least a proper shuttle come on bros. For soft keys I just use Macrodeck server on an old laptop.

  • Well at'least we know its for people who wanna struggle with this and they can instead just get the stream deck XD

  • This definitely had to have been beta. I purchased this recently. I decided to spend a day to just learn the device, within a just a few days I can’t imagine editing in final cut without it. I also had the loupdeck + and this takes it to another level. Please do an update video. I’d like to know what your thoughts are 5 months later.

  • More Taran productivity videos please!

  • I wonder why they made the app a chromium-based app? At first, I thought compatibility but java could have done that just as well and better. I think if they made it in c++ and fixed the bugs it would be something work considering. C++ would basically ensure it won't break in the future if they just used windows API calls. I have a feeling in a few years when they go out of business and stop supporting the software it would become a paperweight.

  • On an unrelated subject, do Hasu USB to USB converter/controllers behave the same no matter which keyboard you plug it into, or do you have to program them for each keyboard? I'm still not exactly clear how that functions. Is it essentially a prosthetic brain for your keyboard?

  • His haptic feedback comment...who holds down a key perpetually? Push and lift your finger. Not sure what the problem is. Unless you're experiencing a stroke or a surge of electricity is coursing through your body, sounds like he had a bone to pick even before he opened the box.

  • Looked really good when you grabbed it out of the box, like these touch sliders (which turned out to be just screens, cool either way), good looking probably remappable keys, a bunch of knobs on the sides, and also this one big touchscreen knob, a usb-c connector is a nice touch (even tho it should be a standard). Even a nice, clean looking box. But I actually don't do much editing... It just looks really cool, and I would probably find a good use for this, but... yeah, it ain't cheap. Software looks kinda bad from what I can see, and from what you've said tho.

  • The most honest review yet, and I hope that all reviews on IRworld were as honest as this one instead of full-hype reviews that later shock the consumer when they actually buy the product. I was very close to buying this one, but some of the things that Taran mentioned as downsides were actually a big deal for me. Glad I didn't go for it, hopefully they do better in their next product. Honest reviews like this are crucial for both the consumer and manufacturer.
