The Next Generation of Hands-on Music Creation and PerformanceIf you're ready for a whole new approach to electronic music production, then step up to Feeltune's Rhizome SXE groove production workstation. The Rhizome SXE merges the power of a dedicated audio computer with the hands-on creativity of a hardware unit, to create an exceptionally playable production environment that's actually just as capable performing on stage as it is in your recording studio. You can go from playing your software instruments (via MIDI controller or the 16 touch-sensitive pads), to creating sequences all the way to arranging a complete track, without ever missing a beat.
The Rhizome SXE gives you access to every feature you need to create music, right from the front panel. You have 32 endless rotary encoders and 16 backlit buttons to control your project, and four large displays give you immediate visual cues as to what each knob and button is controlling. It's the ideal host for your VST instruments and effects, eliminating the need to change settings with a mouse - just grab a knob and turn it, just as you'd expect from a hardware unit. So with the hands-on immediacy of hardware, the power and expandability of a computer, and worldwide acclaim from top producers and artists, the Feeltune Rhizome SXE groove production workstation could be just what you've been searching for.

You need this!
by MoMo (runningoutofspace) from Chicago, IL, USAThis is a complete production / performance solution. If you have a computer and use programs such as Ableton Live, Maschine, Logic, Reason, etc. with plug-ins, soundcard(s), and Midi controllers, y... read more [+]ou need to know what the Feeltune's Rhizome SXE can do. Make no mistake, this is an so-called 'ITB solution' but the alternative is about fifty different components that need eachother to work. The Rhizome is a killer of that old multi-component concept. The Sequencing Mode area is where I spend most of my time but the other layers, such as the keyboard are just complete time savers.

Music Background: DJ/Producer, Engineer
Feeltune does offer 64bit versions so the sky is the limit but what you get here is great start. And even though you may be want to put in all of your favorite plug-ins, don't neglect the factory installed plug-ins. VSTs such as TRBOB are free, but sound and work amazing on this.
- It is big but it's size makes it serious and better for you to handle without compromise. There's an SKB case that fit's this perfectly and you might be able to take it on the plane due to that.
- In the studio, you will need a monitor, PC keyboard, USB mouse/trackball, 8GB USB key, external hardrive, and external DVD drive to perform all the functions you need (OS updates, plug-in installs, visual editing of plug-in GUIs, etc.) before you take it on the road.
Recommended, if you even looked at anything else out there that tried to accomplish this, nine times out of ten it looks like a keyboard. close [-]
