Staalklang: "This App Rock !!" from Norway

Rober Handline: "If you are looking for a very useful midi controller this is it! Highly programmable, and it has every known scale / mode. Slide Control is extremely responsive as a core-midi device. I have all the top rated controllers, and while each have interesting spins on midi control, Slide Control is hands down my most used because of the customization. You can choose where you want control information sent while playing the notes based on where you slide your finger on the note. You pick the key, you pick the note range, you pick control values, built in bender, (Even more fun with ibend on your iPhone) I mean what more could you want. If you are a pro keyboard player, or a person that wants to sound like one buy Slide Control you will not regret it!" from US
