Faderfox has introduced the LV3, a compact controller for Ableton Live.

Faderfox LV3
The device controls track volumes by faders, rack parameters by encoders and joysticks and important global things like tempo, quantization & cue/master-volumes.

Further you get a total track control by 24 programmable buttons, organized in 3 rows. You will find a very convenient way to select and fire scenes & clips by a dedicated encoder as well.

Last but not least the two joysticks give you the special feeling of controlling a model aircraft. Fly away…
