Loupedeck or Streamdeck?
There have been a few contributions in the past few days, with glowing tribute to Streamdeck.
I wonder if I have made a mistake in buying a Loupedeck CT. For anyone interested, after wrestling with understanding MIDI (I use SSDR for MAC on my PC), I have actually managed to get the Loupedeck to work to what I think is a really great degree. I have the main dial to control frequency change as per the main dial on the 6600M, and can also select volume, or any other variable parameter I choose to program. The buttons I have made to command anything from Bands, Slice selection, new Panadaptor, Mode, Bandwidth, and all sorts, thanks to the list that Marcus has provided in SSDR for MAC. The side knobs are programmed to change AGCT, Mic gain, Slice Volumes, Audio bandwidth, Slice Zoom, etc. Works brilliantly, with the extra benefit of an Apple TrackPad 2 for example super-quick slice frequency changes.
However, the recent Streamdeck examples shown on other discussions leaves me to wonder if I could achieve the same or better for less outlay...........
I rather think that the Loupedeck CT is more suited to use with the 6400 or 6600 as opposed to the 6400M or 6600M. It is a matter of choice, I suppose. In fact I hardly use the front panel of the 6600M except for meter viewing, or recording transmissions/playback.
Perhaps the only real advantage of owning the Loupedeck CT is that it can also be used for Photography Apps such as Photoshop etc, for which it was originally designed.
I have actually really enjoyed playing with the Loupedeck and have learned a lot besides, so maybe it was not such a bad idea after all!! Just my thoughts.......
Cheers. Mike G4GWH.
