I noticed that the Maestro is not longer listed on the buy page.  What has happened?

    In the meantime. You can still buy the dust cover and tilt hinge feet and set them on your desk and pretend

    Why delete if it's just on back order? Very odd indeed!

    There has been an issue with the product database for our online store.  We are working on the issue.

    The maestro mostly duplicates the front panel of an M model flex. The non-M 6400, 6600 do not have a front panel with controls, and require a separate pc,Mac, iPad, iPhone or maestro for control.

    with one exception, no internet is required to operate a flex. The pc, maestro or whatever plugs directly into the flex with a cat 6 Ethernet cable. The only time the flex must have internet connectivity is to validate purchase of a new major version of the flex software (e.g from version 3 something to version 4 something).

    From my perspective, if someone really needs knobs to fiddle with, the preferred combination is a maestro and a non-M radio. The radio can be mounted in one location, and the maestro in another, for a lot of Flexibility

    With all the support software available, I have never felt the need for legacy knobs.
