The new Faderport8 is a bit of a gem. I'm not really making the most of all the features yet but it’s already saving time when tracking. The integration with Studio One is amazing, right down to very cool control over plugins. Also it doesn't hurt to have a splash of colour in the studio… not everything has to be silver and black eh!
It's a Tech21 FlyRig!! I grabbed one at the end of the year and over the Xmas break finally got around to doing some direct recording tests. Very versatile and 'vibe-y'.
