"Wow Stephen,

"Good luck, it's really great once you get used to it.  It travels with me to the studio also, since i am a recording engineer as well.  Can't stand using a mouse, and it needs no extra space to move around."

"You won't be sorry.  For me it was a bout a day or two.  It's a little weird at first, but believe me, you will never go back to a mouse after using a good trackball.  There are sites online that you can pick one up for about $70.  Kensington is…"

"Hi Chris,

I've tried them ALL...lol and a few they don't have in stores I am interested in also.  My curiosity is what are people using on this forum in terms of a controller for their strings?  And DAW control as well.  because aside from the keys…"
