size is main thing. I love it to have a small device in front of me.
i don;t need all functionality.what i can do with A4 is more than enough.
the ergonomics of my a4 and ar together is amazing... I can mute channels from both devices with one hand only.
I don't have any ambition with making music. have been on stage a lot a while ago. Also don't feel like I have to go to any party (but I will see headless horseman soon when he plays in Nijmegen). The Analog four is most fun when I am hanging on my couch or in bed, playing and disappearing. The best music I made with only an A4 or with this combination
one more thing... my creativity blocks from too many possibilities and too big equipment. i don;t use many things and i ony start to scratch the surface. I love this 'limited' equipment.
