      You’re welcome. :)

      Not planning on getting an Impulse controller, tbh. I use iOS devices to control Live, but the Impulse controls iOS apps. Sorry!

      There’ll be a review next week. Also thinking about making some video tutorials if I can manage. I can only borrow the Push over the weekends.
