I just upgraded from a wacom intuos to a xp-pen star 06 wireless Drawing Tablet . I was really missing a scroll wheel and now I've got it, as well as 6 customizable shortcut keys. The stylus behaves a little unpredictably at times, like when I double click on an audio plugin, normal. But when I double click on an instrument plugin, nada. So I created a keyboard shortcut for the second button on the stylus to toggle instrument plugin window. The scroll wheel resolution is not customizable and is pretty coarse. I hope that may change with updates, but it's workable as is.

The xp-pen star 06 drawing pad 10x6 inches active area size works well with my double side to side monitor setup. The price is right on these, especially compared to wacom stuff. I was very happy to discover this brand.Some other options I'm working with are ipad apps: Logic Remote, Touch OSC, and Mobile Mouse.

In the video for the Surface composing app it says "Play your score back. In lifelike detail." I wonder what orchestral library is in there. Certainly not the complete VSL, right?

But I've been thinking about getting a Wacom since I saw Stimming using it.
