While I'm bugged by it being leather, i would still ask why it needs leather if it were to turn out to be faux leather. Flavor? I've never been a fan of shallow flair (including leather, long before i was vegan).

Some great posts here, both serious and silly.

My appreciation for Nine Inch Nails grew 10-fold by the time I finished listening to all of the "Industrial" music that came out of the 70's.

From everything I've come to understand about "industrial", Nine Inch Nails isn't. i can see why people make the association, though. NIN is also my absolute favorite "band" of all time. Trent Reznor's influences are in my own work. The things that influenced him are totally different from my own personal tastes, but it formed his tastes and his productions are to my liking. Therefore, the stuff he likes that i don't like was still very important in forming the stuff i do like.

If that made any sense at all. I've spent way too much time blabbing on the internet today. I need a real human being to interact with, sheesh.
As for this song... yeah... the tattoos... and the first line put me right off. Oh well.
What an unfortunate genre/fad. It was apparently named for SunnyDay Real Estate (fantastic band and music, even with the sudden change in style between breaks). I'm not sure why sincere and deeply emotional lyrics and expression needs to have a genre and a specific sound, but that (not narcissism and tattoos) seems to be the strongest delineation between this and other official genres. Frankly, i hate genres. I get the need to classify things, and i surely participate, but music genres have gotten to the point where they've defeated the purpose.
I know we vegans are hated and all that... but leather? The device seems kind of full featured and thoughtfully designed. But leather? Why is that necessary? This is an audio interface. Why does it need leather?
At least they used a sort of new shape in their flat and dull GUI design...

"Rest In Peace in peace"...?


As for the lawsuit threat... just wow. I hope whatever court they go to for the next suit notices that they only just started to care about this particular clone as of 2017...
I can't wait for the developers' inevitable rage posts on audio forums about how much it sucks to make software on iOS... They think it's a lot of work to keep up with macOS...
I've been watching the Seaboard discussions on KVR and seeing lots of problems with the Seaboards put into customers' hands. I keep hoping Roli gets the manufacturing reliable and consistent. Many users say they ultimately ended up with units that worked better than their first, second, or (sigh) third units. So far, I'm not willing to even think about putting money away for one of these things, especially if it will involve multiple warranty replacements... but they seem really cool when they work. I really want an expressive controller and this one seems to have the features I was hoping to see, just not the reliability.
