Why is this simple unit so expensive?

Post by Robingardner » Mon Jan 07, 2019 2:36 pm

Hi Steinberg!

I'm wondering since this unit offers very little true change and its almost like 10 years old, etc. Why is it still so expensive? Isn't it by time to lower its price quite a fair amount? Like half it at least... It goes for like 400 Euro as of now, that's almost as expensive as Cubase Pro 10 that goes for about 550 Euro. And it has many counterpartsm like the Presonus Faderport (different versions) that goes for like 200 Euros...

//Many regards from Robin Gardner in Stockholm, Sweden.

1. The BIGGER question is why is this unit NOT PROPERLY SUPPORTED with updates, improved features, user requests etc.

2. It is WAY overpriced for what it does

3. I wouldn't buy one now

All of that is true. However, I still really like mine. I'm on C8 and I love it. Yes, it could be better supported. Is still a great single channel controller.

I agree it should be updated and cheaper, but I do love mine...

I love mine too. Though I would love it lots more if the LED's could be dimmed!
