Default Expressive E Touché and my case of the sadz

This comment from Mike in another thread hit home for me. Last week a friend of mine sent me a video of a very cool midi controller called the Expressive E Touché. I was sold immediately and was about to order it. Then I thought I should check the manual to see if I needed to order any cables that I might not have to connect it. Looking over the manual I noticed they had a section for just about every DAW except Pro Tools. It works with just about everything but it doesn't work with Pro Tools. A week later and I'm still kinda sad about that because I think this is a pretty amazing piece of gear.

Anyway, some of you that use a DAW other than PT, you might like this...

I don't use ProTools but I'm surprised that this isn't compatible with it. It's simply sending CC (control change) MIDI info. Are you sure it won't work?

That the manual has a section for just about every other DAW but PT made me investigate further. I saw incompatibility mentioned in a few places. I don't remember which now but a quick search found this one...

"LIMITATIONS
Requires a flat surface. Works only with VST instruments. Incompatible with Pro Tools."

Too bad, but glad you looked to foresee any issues. My self-learning for home recording involved reading a lot of manuals before buying anything. Saves time once you get the gear, too!

Dang, I thought this was going to be a MIDI pickup/controller for acoustic guitars.

Anyway, it's a cool item.

In the video, the guy says it'll work as a standalone with a MIDI keyboard, which is probably how I'd use it anyway. No DAW required.

I'd want it as a VST controller to use within PT.
