I have a question to the ETC team, and that is is there any plans for ETC to make the new midi and I/O gateways work with Cobalt?
As a LD and programmer I want to grow and don't want the gear to be my limit. But when I now want to grow in the direction of show control, MIDI and so ETC removed the Cobalt compatible gear and made the new one EOS only.
This on the other hand pushes me away from cobalt quicker, but that's maybe the plan? all you loose is a few 100€ for some gateways when there is no new desks to sell? Hoping we go for EOS?
Hello Johannes -
We are working on feature releases for Cobalt for the next few years. We do not plan to support the new USB MIDI devices in Cobalt.
ok. that's so sad. (The midi part) Not even over network?!
So the only way for us to use midi on the network (With backups or long distances) is to get the discontinued, real expensive Net3 ShowControl Gateway?! :-(
But thanks for all the good things you do with the Cobalt system!
