I realise that the MCU-support in Podium is a very recent addition, but has anyone tried Frontiers AlphaTrack control unit with Podium?
Information seem to be lacking, but from what I can tell, the AlphaTrack should be able to run in emulated mackie-mode. And as such, nearly all functions should be functioning.
Anyone had the opportunity to try it yet? A full version of Podium is looming for me 🙂
* = the Behringer doesnt really appeal to me as it lacks a “real” LCD-display, showing track/mixer parameters. The Mackie Universal Control is the most appealing to me since it holds both time- as well as parameter LCD-displays. Unfortunately though, they have removed the standard MCU and now currently only offer the PRO-version. Both this as well as the Yamaha 01x and M-audio Projectmix are a bit on the costly side though.

I purchased my MCU (non-PRO) from a German shop that still had a batch on stock. I think you should be able to find shops that are selling the older model cheap. I paid 800 Euros (ex. VAT) for mine. I bought the older model because I prefer the dark/round button design over the new white/square button design.
