Do you really want to control the browser selection with the side buttons? You'll have sore fingers at the end of the evening :)

I did a six hour session on this a couple weeks back and didn't notice anything with my fingers. It repeats when you hold it down (ie, scrolls when you hold it). I found it really easy to control the browsing and previewing with the side buttons, even after way too many drinks. ;) The idea is to make the controller work like a rotary mixer. The A&H V6 is the specific inspiration. I just realized I have an update of this where the bottom and middle side button functions have been swapped. Feels more natural since it groups the browsing/previewing and makes accidental tempo changes less likely.
