But no MIDI yet! Useless for RB3!
Still, there is hope...
I'd drop $700 in a heartbeat if I could use them for RB3. I can build whatever MIDI translation is needed.
regarding MIDI triggering: no, it will definitely not be in stores this June. We're probably looking at NAMM 2014 announcement and Q2 2014 shipment. I can't go into any detail about the exact form the product(s) will take
