ICON sent me some midi controllers a few weeks back and I just finished this review of the i-controls. It is a great alternative to the korg nano, which seems to break a lot on me. Here are the videos I made on reviewing it, and an instillation help.
A week ago i-CON sent me one of there new MIDI controllers called i-creativ. It is a fantastic MIDI controller with tons of cool and unique ways of controllin Ableton Live for a live set or in production. Here are two videos on the i-creative. The first is a review of the device and then how I use it in ableton live.

i-creativ with Ableton Live
Here is the Ableton Live set used in the video as an example.
Over the past few months I have been using a new Free Plugin VST I found and it's been amazing. Its from the company called Flux and the the VST is called Stereo Tool. This Plugin is amazing for dialing in your elements to get a great sound stage and placement. Its supper easy to use. Here is an image below.
This lets you increase the stereo width, pan the element, gain the right and left seperatly and more. I am now getting in the habit of putting this on every track in my production. Supper useful and wanted to share it with you all. To download it for free follow this link: http://www.fluxhome.com/products/freewares/stereotool
