    I don't understand yet how useful it could be to modul8, but sound-wise it surely is useful.

    The price kills it though. I rather buy a Korg padKontrol.

    I just played with one of these today at the Maker Faire in San Mateo.

    The price may seem high at first, but I had the pleasure of talking to one of the developers, and learning why. These are all hand-made locally - you are not paying China Labor prices, but living wages. You are investing in a company that believes in keeping their product adaptable and open to modification by its customers. You are supporting a small group of motivated innovators, much like the folks at garageCube.

    Isn't there a big difference in the openness and support we get from the garageCube peeps versus [INSERT LARGE BRAND HERE]?

    I'm very excited by what I've seen at the Faire - hope some of you have been able to make it out!

    You are right about that, man. I'd be interested in reading about this "open-ended" architechture you speak about. How configurable/modifyable is it? That could make it worth the cash (besides the hand made origins, I already knew that, though I really don't pay much attention to that sort of details)
