Great info, Richard. But I hadn’t heard that the DM-48 supports Bluetooth, and all the demos I’ve seen show a wire (which I assume is the USB wire) attached to the controller. I also don’t see any reference to Bluetooth on the website (http://www.lekholminstruments.com/ <http://www.lekholminstruments.com/>). Am I missing something?
