QuNeo was the first Kickstarter project I ever funded and I just got mine in the mail a couple of weeks ago. Â I’ve only had a few hours to spend with it, but that’s been enough to get a feel for what it’s capable of and what it will do for my setup.
I play live laptop/keyboards/synths/drum machine in a rock-tronic band called Thrillouette in San Francisco. Â The setup is primarily Ableton Live on a laptop with some midi controllers plugged into it for live control. Â The controllers include a Softstep from Keith McMillen, the people who make the QuNeo, as well as an Akai MPD32. Â The QuNeo is expected to replace the MPD32 so I’m going to do a quick comparison of the two.
