XIO patches load into the X ( i'm sure they sound 'not the same', but close at least)
XIO inputs can't route thru the F/X (boo!)
XIO has 1 XLR 1 1/4" jack...??? (X has Neutrik combo jacks...!!!)
MIDI in is needed for the other controllers i use (Launch Pad, OctaPad)
Bass station template (no deal) or Bass station soft synth (deal)?
I agree totally.
No Midi is a bummer imho. I'm also looking for a Midi Controller and Synth in ONE and X-station is the best solution for me.
Microkorg can do the job maybe even better as Swan mentioned and that for a low $399
I have read alot about experiences and saw the diffrents between XIO and the X-station. If you don't mind the midi go for the Xio. There where you have a lot of features and tweaks on the X-Station, I'd be bored with the XIO in a hartbeat. That's my opinion.
@ Dano; have you also compared, maybe tried the X-Station for comparison?
