Cute, Frivoulous Fun.

Your general opinion of this product.
OK, I admit this was an Impulse Buy... I didn't expect much in useful sounds, and that' what I got: Not much.
It's fun. But I'm having a hard time finding any real use for it.
Perhaps if I was a live dance act, it would have more use.
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
All the controls are solid and smooth functioning.
But note that although the description says "aluminum construction" it's only the top plate that aluminum, the rest is good old plastic.
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?
It's pretty easy to figure out. The minimalist "manual" (one sheet) is enough to get you going.
What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could?
Basically this takes vocal/mic input and either distorts or pitch-changes it beyond human. By mixing dry and effect you can get some more subtle sounds. But it's character gets lost in a big mix.
There really aren't a lot of "features," just sound options.
How is the tone?
Sound is OK. The synthetic voice sound is not as detailed as more high end gear. This one remains more on the "fuzzy" side of the spectrum.
And it's character gets lost in a big mix.
How has it stood up over time?
So far, so good. We won't know until it's been around a while...
