K-Mix Review

K-Mix Review

K-Mix by Kieth McMillen recently hit the streets. Luckily, I was able to have one sent over to review. I dig in immediately and found that the K-Mix is actually much more intuitive than I initially thought. I mean the signature KMI design on a mixer  left me to wonder how easy or not so [...]

CME XKey 37 Review

CME XKey 37 Review

The CME Xkey controllers are among my favorite for their sheer sleakness. They just seem to fit into any situation (literally). I may have mentioned on my previous review of the 25 key version that the design of the CME Xkey is rather masterful. I don’t know if I would’ve imagined before that there could [...]
