Fixed! :mrgreen:

I'll take a well designed midi controller, too. The Launch Control isn't far off in my opinion, but yet falls short in an important way (midi channels).

Andy,
+1 for the Tardis closet, as long as it could have an automated storage retrieval and hookup system for pedals, amplifiers, outboard, etc. Like a great mechanical cloud (without the rain).
I'm working on it. At present I'm on my 830th design modification. My, but this sofa is comfy!
Regards, John

Maybe with wooden end cheeks and a wrist rest.

You've almost described the Frontier Tranzport. It is a pity they stopped making them.

A hack that causes any software designed to cover up deficiencies in vocal or playing ability
(which contributes to the perpetration of musical mediocrity and stifles 'musicianship') to immediately self destruct. The same could apply to any product with '808' or '909' in its designation.
Further development of materials used in subwoofer/speaker cabinet construction to reduce weight even further.

Just a computer that doesn't crash, ever. Not much to ask, surely? (Logic just crashed my Mac completely so this thread sprang to mind.)

The people that made the Tranzport (Mountain something were they called?) made some really good products, but maybe it's their marketing. I had the Tranzport and used it a lot, what was missing for me was an undo button. But it was very well made, installed in seconds, always worked flawlessy

An app that can scan whiskey bottles and tell you if the current batch has reached that elusive Nectar Of The Gods status.
(This falls under the topic of inspiration to describe this threads subject heading!)

I don't want or need all those other features and dervices like the faderports buttons are too small, the CMC's are too rubber and the others come attached to a huge midi mixer thing....

Me to I want this...

And a mini inline console without preamps like the SSL X-Desk but cheaper... or the little one Audient made a few years back (focusrite sold it as well under their name)

Sigh...

This is probably doable, if the market was large enough to merit the investment.
There is a lot of interest in the authenticity of high-value alcoholic drinks, and this has led to development of various methods for analysing their composition quickly and easily - the same techniques could be fairly readily adapted to look for particular levels of various compounds and compare these against a reference database to decide when it's "ready", and it'd probably be fairly simple to define a profile for your own particular preferences.
Something like this linked up to a partner app would do pretty much what you're looking for: http://www.perkinelmer.co.uk/product/torion-t-9-portable-gc-ms-instrument-ntsst090500
"Portable" is relative of course ;)

Seems they call the police when one is sitting on the floor surrounded by open bottles in the liquor store!
(Notice I didn't go for the more obvious phallus comments. Gold star to me!) (you haven't seen my nose)
