Looking for a compact midi controller with no pads, keys, potis, faders etc. but with (ideally 8 or 16) user programmable buttons.
A few years ago, I used a wireless num-pad and KeyRemap4MacBook, so I could map important key shortcuts to an independent, wireless device and so could control my DAW from anywhere within my studio. A compromise tranzport if you want.
This can be an alternative again, now... however, I first want to see if there's anything in the midi world that I could use for Ableton's midi learn thingy.
