Wondering if anyone's using one of these?

I tried a couple of freebies, one wouldn't connect, another had horrible jerky knob behaviour (...), one looked interesting (design your own layouts) but no demo only paid version.

Any recommendations?

Just need simple midi ccs out for ableton and reaper, wired or wireless, doesn't matter.

Cheers.

I use TouchOSC. I've not used it for sliders / knobs, only buttons, I'm afraid. With Reaper and a few of my own scripts. It's mostly reliable. (My mic toggle sometimes goes weird, sending the whole thing dizzy. Before I added that, it had been fine...) It's a shame Reaper's OSC support isn't more flexible, really. As with so much of Reaper, it feels (good but) unfinished.

Thanks. I tried a different osc app last night briefly but don't think I had reaper configured correctly, loads of messages received, probably had a feedback loop :) I'll try again when I have time to concentrate properly.
