I've just upgraded to Mixcraft 8 - which is fantastic. Was thinking of investing in a control surface and wondered if anyone can tell me if these options work well with Mixcraft and have any experiences to share in using them?
The options I'm considereing are:
iCon Qcon Pro X
iCon Qcon Pro USB
Behringer X-Touch Universal Control Surface
Presonus Faderport 8
All comments gratefully received.

Did you get around to purchasing one of these yet? I was looking at the same options and was planning on the QCon pro X. I know the X touch has no midi learn ability and a lot of the features won't work with Mixcraft. The QCon seems to be the most versatile if you aren't using Pro Tools or Cubase. Let me know what you think.

Looking for a control surface, do any of those listed above work fully? (e.g. controlling parameters in virtual instruments, full automation of the software) Any to avoid? I can get other things to make my transport work! Please advise!

I don't know about the Presonus Faderport, but the iCon units and the Behringer unit should work.
I don't know if any of those units would provide multi-track recording capability, unless you had an additional audio interface that comes with its own ASIO drivers. It depends on what you need.
