Musikmesse 2007: JazzMutant Dexter

Lots of great stuff seems to be coming out of this year's Musikmesse. A lot more hardware (especially live hardware) then we saw a NAMM a few months ago. This is good news for all of the live musicians out there, and I will be trying to sort through all the stuff on the web to filter out the best live gear.

First up we have the Dexter, which is a new product from JazzMutant, the fine makers of the uber cool, but uber expensive Lemur. The Dexter is supposed to be the next evolution of the Lemur with much more "out-of-the-box" usability. This includes templates for all of the major DAW workstations, as well as what appears to be more traditional slider and fader interfaces. No word on pricing yet, but the original Lemur always struck me as a great opportunity for as a live tool.
