elliot, thank you for your postings!
i rarely see a company of this size where developers are so close with the user base like here. since i'm a user too, i really appreciate that!
and on a side note: i love my vms. absolutely. i've been waiting for an analog/midi hybrid soooo many years and whenever i'm spinning with it, i'm just happy having it. my traktor controls are simply where i need them: on the mixer. and i still can use my beloved timecode.
p.s.: any plans to make it a little bit lighter? i love the rubber corners and i love that it's made from metal, but my complete gear i take to a gig is now at 20kg on my back... :-/ is it possible to reduce the plates thickness about one or two milimeters?
