I'm no noob when it comes to MIDI controllers, mapping, etc. 20 years in the business. I figured worse case scenario the Samson Conspiracy was worth its price in parts. Plus, every music store I have bought from allows returns. Well, Sam Ash, the actual manufacturer of the unit ( which is why it's so much cheaper buying through them) does not accept returns on MIDI controllers, even though it came with a ready to go return label. It will just not work at all in any way.
About This Item
The core of the Conspiracy is made up of 25 velocity-sensitive trigger pads with aftertouch for sequencing melodies and rhythms, as well as launching clips, loops and samples for live performance. The pads also feature 3-color backlighting, which enables more comprehensive visual feedback and less reliance on a computer screen. Additional control is provided by the Conspiracy's 14 detented knobs, 10 backlit function buttons and six precision faders. All of these controls can be custom assigned via a backlit LCD navigated by a master encoder and four directional buttons. From here, you can program the type (Note/CC#), mode (Momentary/Toggle) and MIDI channel number of the pads, knobs, faders and buttons. Finally, the Conspiracy's X/Y touch pad is especially adept at manipulating effects or transitions within applicable software instruments.
The Conspiracy is an incredibly versatile controller that's equally as effective at home and in the studio as it is on stage. It also features a DJ section with a 2-channel MIDI mixer, crossfader and dedicated transport controls. The trigger pads and knobs are great for live remixing in applications such as Virtual DJ, Traktor and Serato. The Conspiracy is also optimized for clip/scene launching in Ableton, FL Studio and Sonar, or dialing in effects settings for racks in Reason and VST plugins. It can also Save and Recall more than 15 presets created on the controller to quickly jump between your different software applications.Samson Conspiracy description
