Quality
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
Quality is questionable. It froze up a few times with first few productions. You have to manage your samples and uploading samples directly from folders that have been downloaded from sites, CD's or any other source is not recommended. Modify your sample and cut it to its smallest form for the best run quality. There is nothing worse than to be making a production and the thing freezes without you being able to go back and save it. Did a little research, the freezing was supposed to be fixed with the new OS 2.0, but IDK. Other than that the quality of the machine is great!!!
Features
What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could?
Sample chopping is amazing. Have not yet tried the time stretching. The effects feature could be a little more in depth. The actual pads and controls are great. The sound quality is as good as you make it. As long as you have quality samples, you will have a quality sound! I'm just now breaking it in so I have only scratched the surface.
Ease of Use
How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be?
I was a software guy so the switch took a little time but once everything was recognized, a 10 year old could use. If you understand and recognize sound samples, then you can use this machine
Sound
How is the tone?
Sound is wonderful!! enough said
Value
Was this item an overall good value?
