I have using a PCR30 to control B4. I want to move to a better unit. I need 61 keys, easy to program for B4 II. Any help would be appreciated.

After much research, I decided on Axiom61 for my B4'2 and other software in my Receptor.

An excellent controller with a good feel.

Thanks for the replies.
I'll look into all of them.
Bernie9, Is the Axium easy to program for the B4 software?

Hi Smokey
I can't answer that from experience, as I just got it and have not learned how to use it beyond changing patches and channels. This is easy.

What convinced me was the degree of control you have. For example,by using templates, and user programs provided,one can quickly match control parameters to many programs. You can download Enigma for free, and get all kinds of help from their forum. http://www.m-audio.com/products/en_us/Enigma-main.html

Also, by getting the Axiom 49 or 61,you don't have to go through layers to get to your control parameters, as you have a wealth of buttons,pads,sliders, and dials.

Like I say, I am new to this,but know I have the proper controller .

Bernie
