The unit looks cool in general.
To clarify what I meant about springs: the joysticks used now spring back to center. There are four joysticks and yet I only have two hands. Joysticks without springs would be more useful to me. You could adjust one and then adjust another. They would stay put when moved. Sort of like 4 X-Y pads.
I also notice that a lack of buttons limits how the box can be used. Even two buttons could go a long way towards a more multi purpose control box. I know the joysticks have buttons but standalone buttons are more desireable.
I am but one user. Take my suggestions with a grain of salt. Glad to see something go beyond the where the Axocontrol got us started!
