KMI rogue softstep NAMM 2014

We have been fans of the products Keith McMillen Instruments (KMI) has been putting out for a long time.  While we have, unfortunately, still not posted our review of the QuNeo (and it probably has to be updated because so much has changed), I can assure you were are huge fans of it here.  They have two new products that are very exciting: the Rogue for QuNeo and the new Softstep.

The Rogue is a wireless add-on for the QuNeo, allowing up to 60m range with almost 0 latency due to their proprietary wireless technology.  Complaints have been coming in that the price is a little steep at $399, plus $199 for the QuNeo, and while it isn’t a cheap purchase for an add-on, it is a powerful addition to a very performance based controller.

The Softstep has been completely updated as well, based on a lot of the community feedback on the original controller.  It looked great before, but now the LEDs are a lot crisper and the buttons feel a lot better.  They also did a huge update to their editor, which I only could see screen shots of, to make it more streamlined and easier to use.  Much like every other manufacturer at this event, I am getting rumors and hints that big things are coming, and if any company can do something to shake up our little corner of the industry it’s KMI.



Commenting Etiquette

Welcome to DJWORX. It’s the most engaged community around, and we have a handful of house rules to keep it that way:
  • • Be polite and constructive.
  • • Treat others as you would expect to be treated. So please disengage keyboard warrior mode before hammering in a full caps rant.
  • • Stay on topic.
  • • Consider your tone of voice. Telling someone that they’re wrong comes across better as “I don’t agree and here’s why”.
  • • No links to copyrighted or offensive material.
Life is way too short to waste time policing comments. So break the rules and you’re out. It’s just the internet, and  the DJWORX community is way more important than catering to the fragile egos of ranting trolls. I trust I have been crystal clear.
