Default Re: 10.5 iPad Pro support?

If you take out the current detachable support back, the angle is as low as it could be for comfort of the knobs and view.

The Dock is used for more than Pro Tools. The wheel needs to stay as it is. The dock isn't a fader box -- that's what the Mix or S3 is for. The dock mimics the S6 control section.

The only thing I never see get used "right" are the touchstrips. Those could have just been more addressable buttons. (which is how I see they get used anyway).

And "Input" needs to be added to the fader (for every Eucon device that's missing that)

Your opinion of “viewing angles” is outdated, modern LCDs like the current generation of ipad look just fine when they are viewed from above.

The form factor of the artist series was just fine, and you can even raise up the back a little bit. The problem with the dock is that it blocks the main monitor, you would have to raise the monitor up a lot, or put it off to the side, and that sucks.

As for giant wheels, have a look at the Akai MPC X for example, or the current generation NI Maschine controller. The wheel is out of the way and just as accessible and useful.
