This wireless remote for DAW is a real timesaver. It's compatible with ProTools, Logic, Cubase, Sonar, Digital Performer and others. If you want to record your own performances without having to walk back and forth from the control room to the drum room every single time, this machine is invaluable. I like it because you can use it from anywhere within a reasonable range, and it will still work. I've heard that other remotes of this nature need to be directly lined up with the computer, or that there can't be any obstructions in between. I am happy that this isn't the case with this one, as there's not always a direct line of sight in the studio I work at from some of the iso booths.

Even if you aren't in a studio, but still want to record something that's not able to fit in your bedroom, you could set up the remote to work from your piano or drum set. You can do more than just start rolling, too. You can arm tracks, set markers, control panning and faders, as well as control other functions. It also indicates signal levels so you know you can tell if you are peaking, which helps and is a constant problem when tracking live. That alone might be the best feature about it, as there's really no way to know if you're too loud while tracking until after you've recorded, at which point it's generally too late to really do anything about it without serious editing, which is not ideal.

This thing is pretty great for people who perform and record. Certainly worth your money if recording is taking up too much time, which it would for me if I didn't have this. I'd recommend it if you don't pay too much for it. We only paid about $200 which was a good price in my opinion. I'd recommend just going with the best remote controller out there instead of buying cheaper and being disappointed.
