I have been thinking about buying some sort of control surface for my rig and have been looking at KORE by NI. Can anyone clarify for me what it is and how you use it and is it worth the cash? I thought it was a beefed up MIDI controller/arrange your presets thingy but I see that it also has audio inputs. Is it a sound card as well? Will it play nice with my Echo Layla 3G?

Any insight would be greatly appreciated.


PS i own a couple of NI instruments (Absynth4 and FM8)
