Re: Use of controllers

it really depends on a lot of things.  What's your
instrument?  When I'm playing keyboard I have buttons
programmed on the controller to control my loops.  For
guitar, buttons suck, so it's all on the floor. Some
functions like loop volume work best as a expression
pedal, others foot switches.  I find the Handsonic
funny because a lot of the presets use the D-Beam
(Infrared beam of light) to trigger a sound, and it's
nearly imossible for me to make it work in any
accurate way.  However, it's great for controlling
pitch and effect/modulation controls.

Really you can do anything a million ways, the most
important thing is becoming comfortable and intimate
with your hardware interface so it becomes second
nature to use.
