Just wondered if anyone has had one of these relics from the past ?

It is exactly what I want as a midi controller, as many vsti etc have the learn function this could be so useful.

Only problem is no drivers for modern os. Is there any way I could get this working or a work around of some kind ?

Do you have one, or are you thinking of getting one...?

Personally I'm done with faffing around trying to get unsupported hardware to work. It's not worth the aggro when there are relatively inexpensive modern equivalents like Novation Launchcontrol.

No drivers necessary! It's just a standard MIDI controller, so you just need a 5-pin DIN MIDI input somewhere and you'll be good to go.

There are some more modern alternatives that work over USB though, which might suit your setup better? Can't go too far wrong with a Behringer BCR2000, which has endless rotaries and a ring of LEDs so the knobs don't need to be 'manually' set to the real position of whatever parameter you're controlling.

Or there's the Korg Nano range?

Hey I didn't realise I could use it ! That's great news, thought it may need drivers. Best I dig it out and connect it up ;)

Those Kenton controllers are also built like tanks, and should therefore last for years and years and...
