Default Advice for new user migrating from Avid S3

Hi Folks,

I have almost decided to move my facility away from Avid Pro Tools to Reaper and am now focusing on what control surfaces I should consider. For the past decade I have been on Euphonix/Avid surfaces, most recently the S3 and a Transport, but the limitations of the Avid ecosystem has made me look at Reaper.

The past few weeks I have researched and trialled a number of Reaper extensions to get my S3 to be a workable option, but it appears that a proper MCU/HUI device would be better suited that using the S3.

For the production work I do, 16 faders is a must, and a couple of banks of rotary encoders would allow me to use use Reaper to map common plugins. I have played with using a DJ Twister with the ReaLearn / LBX SmartKnobs and this is great.

Having the ability to create some custom actions to change a channel select button on a surface into a Select and Set Automation Mode would be the icing on the cake.

Any thoughts on what options I might have? Thanks in advance. tdc
