Great bit of kit - integrates with Ableton seamlessly and worked straight out of the box - literally plug and play. Packed full of features and barely opened the manual so far (3 weeks in) as its so intuitive. This is the first control surface I've used so I don't have anything to compare it to but really pleased so far. Makes mixing and working with Ableton much more creative and hands on - which is what I was after. Top class service from djkit.com too - especially as it was purchased AND then delivered between xmas and new year - fantastic!

Great product
A really great update from the original. The MK2 is USB powered, has RGB clip buttons, and the flat profile design makes it way more portable. If you are looking for a all in one Ableton live controller I highly recommend this.

I used to have this as a midi controller to control all my lighting at my gigs before changing it to the APC Mini but now I have this in my recording studio and what you can do with it is never ending
