You need this!
This 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, you 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.
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.
