Hopefully the R+D will trickle down to a more affordable plugin version :)

Has this thread been trimmed? I recall it was 4+ pages yesterday.

Yes it seems so, there was a lot of off-topic posts in here. We have to start over. :D

Ugh. The trimming continues. I don't enter the forums too often but, wasn't the usual procedure to lock a thread/ban people that went too far? I've seen much harsher shitstorms and product bashing here that didn't necessarily cause the removal a whole thread. Just my 0.02$

I simply trimmed off the OT bits, but people keep adding more. Yes, it was trimmed, let's do move on please.

...why?
No one cares, no one sympathizes,
so you just stay home and play synthesizers.

Whoops, looks like someone accidentally copied the monitor dimensions in there. Unless the QWERTY keyboard is almost a cube. :)

I must say after looking at the NAMM photos that the keyboard looks pretty sexy. It would likely make a sweet master keyboard. As for the apparent iPhone dock, my only concern is with the different shapes they come in. It appears to have an iPhone 3G/3GS docked in the shot I saw. Do they use interchangeable adapters? OR do they supply you with the proper version at that price..? :lol:

Look at the first and fifth photo.. Is that the blue Windows window-line at the top of the screen? The computer looks like a standard pc tower lying down with some custom rack box on top. It is clearly a normal motherboard, with PS/2 and the standard audio jacks. I wonder if you can choose "Realtek Onboard HD Audio" as your main audio driver..

Seriously, is this nothing more than a powerful Windows PC with custom software and a "Crystal Core" card or whatever the hell it's called?

And that qwerty keyboard.. Seeing as the "PC" has your normal PS/2 and USB ports, are anyone at all gonna use that keyboard?
