After we exposed the world to the EKS Utus, there was a lot of buzz but no word as to when it might actually come out. That is until news came across the desk today that they are in full production and will begin to take orders as soon as tomorrow. It’s still too early to report on performance but we should be getting one into the office shortly and will make a full report as soon as we do!
According to EKS the pricing will be:
EUR 649 (+ VAT 22% in EU countries) +shipping & handling
The webshop will open during the weekend or Monday at the latest
This is an exciting controller and we are anxious to put it through the paces. Personally, I wish they had released the Otus RAW at the same time which is equipped with cue point buttons and a sliding pitch fader. That release is apparently scheduled for some time in 2009. Nonetheless, this first version is going to be a hot commodity as well if they managed to nail the performance.
