I was really excited to add the N1 to my rig so that my laptop could do a little less work but so far I cant find any advantages to using the console version over onPC
the NX1 dosent support adjusting the resolution on any of my external screens to acurettly match my on PC setup. Becuase of this my 27 inch monitor has huge clown sized buttons that make the added screen space actually a hinderance instead of an advantage. The same buttons are unreadably small on the small screen with no middle ground or ability to customize.
most all 2d views and CITP imports are impossibly to view on either screen even with the zoom set to 0% making the touch select functions in these views usless.
the NX-1 has litterally no ability to recieve timecode with out added expense. I have to run my console in session with an OnPC setup as a secondary to use the Timecode coming out of Reaper or Resolume. And when doing that the Timecode wont display on the console.
Also the ability to open up virtual playback windows is removed on the console version.
For software designed for a touch screen i have been hugely disappointed by moving over the console series. you can get an Nx_Touch and 2 nx_nodes for less than a quarter of the price and honestly get more functionality and customaization than the console.
Is the console experience every going to be comparable to the onPC version?
Locking operators out of things like this is really keeping ONYX out of the viable touring hardware category. I usually just bring my M-Play and use the venues 10 year old PCs at this point because the NX1 is more of a hassle than an improvement
I cant ever imagine myself purchasing one of the higher tier consoles when a shitty Lenovo laptop has more ability to run a high level show.
