I was wondering what everybody else thinks about this thing. As someone who really wants to play and perform live, I'm trying to figure out what would be one of the most useful bits of gear to acquire with that in mind. I'm really set on getting the Allen and Heath Xone 4D as a DJ mixer, having played around with one at a Guitarcenter and loving the living shit out of it. But I was thinking what people thought of this, it looks pretty interesting and portable enough to take just about anywhere. Without spending 3 grand on a DJ mixer would this be a suitable live companion?

It seems Ableton is really wanting to put out a lot of their own hardware to compliment their software, which I'm all for. Thoughts? Rants? Discussions?

I think it would be more entertaining and look better than a mixer for live performances.

I'm loving that Ableton is finally taking advantage of the uniqueness of their DAW. Both the Launchpad and the APC40 make me really excited about using Ableton and I'd love to get one of those pieces of gear in my dorm studio but I don't have the space/funds.
