Keith McMillen Instruments QuNeo Multi-touch Programmable MIDI Control Surface at a Glance:
More hands-on controls than you'd ever imagine
Like most pad controllers, the QuNeo gives you 16 pads to play with. However, each of the QuNeo's pads gives you continuous pressure response and X-Y control as well as 127 levels of velocity sensitivity. That means you can use a pad to trigger a note on a soft synth, control its pitch bend with the Y axis, modulation with the X axis, and level with continuous pressure... 16 times over. But thats not all. The QuNeo also gives you a pair of rotary sensors (complete with angle, pressure, and radius sensitivity), which you can use for anything from scrubbing to scratching and more. Add to that multi-touch sliders and smart switches, and you're never going to run out of available controls when you perform with your Keith McMillen Instruments QuNeo.
Integrated multi-color LEDs provide critical feedback
Having a ton of controls at your fingertips is great, but it can be more than a little daunting if you don't have the right kind of visual feedback. That's why Keith McMillen Instruments equipped the QuNeo control surface with 251 multi-color LEDs, which you can easily program to provide you with the critical visual feedback you need. There are even dedicated LEDs beneath the QuNeo's faders, which act as VU meters, allowing you to keep track of the volume and intensity of your tracks.
Pack-and-go footprint lets you take your rig on the road
With all of these cool controls bolstered with an army of LEDs to keep you on track, you'd probably expect the QuNeo to be a fairly sizable control surface. Not so! Keith McMillen Instruments designed the QuNeo to have the approximate footprint of an Apple iPad. In fact, the QuNeo will actually fit in many iPad-specific devices, such as mic stand adapters and desktop stands. That also means you can stick your QuNeo into just about any bag, without worrying about space. And since the QuNeo is totally USB bus powered. you're ready to pick up and go anytime.

I have also tried it with SSD4, Traktor Pro, Reaktor, Absynth and a few others, They are instant best friends usually.
The Quneo software is easy to understand and not too time consuming.
I am only breaking the ice of our new friendship but I <3 it already.
The one thing that might bother people, is that you have to hit a LITTLE harder to finger drum, than Maschine. close [-]
by David from Los Angeles, CAA One of a Kind controller. A must have if nothing else for reference. But this machine is the problem with "Pre Order" as it couldn't be revued by anyone but KMI and endorsed DJ artists up till 8/30/... read more [+]12. And real usability compared to the APC40 or IPAD touchable is still to be seen. While pressure control is great, controlling XY on the pads and basic up down on the sliders seems to lack accuracy. All the same the price is set to deflect returns.. close [-]

Not only does this product take a while to install and activate, but the user manual is a miniature novel loaded with confusing terminology that I don't have time to understand (as there are 35 others on my shelf that I don't have time for either). In this day and age, I need something that doesn't take hours and hours to learn and figure out, so i'm returning this and going with NI Maschine. close [-]
