"The Bitstream offers a plethora of tweakable parameters
and comes with an advanced software application that allows you
to set it up in exacting details"
"The Bitstream offers a unique Low Frequency Oscillator
function that, again, can be assigned to any CC or user defined
MIDI event, and gives you frequency, amplitude and offset controls,
along with three available waveforms : triangle, sine and square.
This is a great little function that can be used, for example,
to continuously modulate the filter cutoff on any typical soft
synth and easily add accurate movement to any parameter you desire."
"Bitstream Pro comes packaged with a neat application that
allows you to set up the device to your specifications quickly
and relatively easily"
"Each parameter can include a CC or a 24 character user-defined
MIDI string, maximum and minimum values, and a 16-byte description,
which displays on the LCD so you know exactly which parameter
you are currently tweaking"
"Bitstream Pro is a very useful and relatively inexpensive
MIDI controller that does everything in one box and does it well"
"The setup software, which works brilliantly and really
allows you to get deep into any function and assign it to anything
"The LFO is an intriguing addition, and the push switches,
when assigned to your transport controls, really help with using
any sequencer package, keeping your hands well away from that
"Bitstream Pro is a worthy piece of kit and would sit proudly
at the heart of your music setup for years to come"

"The Bitstream is the only programmable MIDI controller
that has enough knobs and faders to keep all my fingers twirling
while still letting me perform (instead of counting ‘eight over,
"I must say that whenever setting up for a show or entertaining
a curious onlooker, the Bitstream gets the most curious glances
compared to all my other gear "

"I use the bitstream mainly for playing live with a laptop
using ableton live or similar looper patches built with max/msp
- it really helps to keep the orientation because of it's mixer
like layout - i control 8 channels/loops with it and per channel
I have some fx send, filter, bitcrusher...”

"I'm a software synthesiser addict - I have Reason, Rebirth,
Reaktor 3, Fruityloops 3, Cakewalk and more. Not only does my
Bitstream Pro work perfectly with all of them, but I'm absolutely
convinced it helps me get far more out of them, creatively speaking,
than I would if I was slowed down by using a mouse. It's the
one piece of equipment in my studio that I absolutely could
not do without."

"To control the specialist program we created to produce the
live video for Massive Attack's forthcoming
tour, we needed a midi controller with 8 channels and midi through
and midi merge. This kind of funtionallity exists only in the
Bitstream Pro. We spent ages looking out for a controller of
this kind, until Wave Idea were recommended to us. We lookforwards
to putting it through it's paces on tour"
