My friend has one and I've messed around on it a little bit. He uses it to input midi into Reason. Any more specific questions?

um, I can't say if it's worth it or not, that's up to the individual, but, it is nice. Lots of assignable sliders and knobs to tweak, which is cool when working with soft synths. But, in order to do anything REAL cool with it, you need to have some good software as well. I don't know any dj programs, but the keyboard is real fun to play around with.

G FYAH, that Radium49 is a great little controller. M-Audio has the USB thing down so there isnt really any hassle getting it up and running. And indeed it works great with most any soft synth programs as well as anything that will accept midi input. You can use it as a control surface as well as a keyboard controller. And the price is excellant as well.

Project 5 from Cakewalk has a function that will do what you are talking about and it comes with a truckload of softsynths and soft drum machines as well. It is made for creating loops on the fly just as you spoke of, as well as using it ReWired to Sonar or whatever program you might use.
