Based on your other thread about the Gaia vs. Akai, I would still pick the Akai since it's a better general purpose controller.
Air Hybrid 3 apparently is not available by itself (!!??) only bundled. It is fully programmable (unlike Analog Lab) and focuses on "modern" sounds rather than the vintage sounds of Analog Lab. You can always buy the Analog Lab software separately for $90.
I listened to Hatfield and the North at Rainbow. They were very wonderful and they made my heart a prisoner.
