Re: Alt controllers

After a somewhat frustrating hour with Hipno and my
Panasonic camcorder as a webcam (The Panasonic
PV-GS300 works great as a webcam, btw) I gave up on

I found the best way to make it work was to have very
good lighting, but usually I can't attain this in my
studio... or I should say I don't want to attain this.
 Also, the plug-ins themselves seemed similar to other
Reaktor ens I already have. (though pretty damn cool)


My Christmas present to myself was the Alesis Photon
X25.  Found a store on ebay selling them for $129
refurbs.  Hopefully the issues they had were repaired.
 I figure for $129, how could you go wrong?  Even if
all it does is give me 3 CCs from the IR sensor array
it's worth that.
