It’s cool

Product Review

I mean it’s cool for what it does, I definitely does what it says with no issues. I wish it was more customizable. If I would have known now before I purchased I just would have gotten an MPC. Don’t get me wrong it sounds amazing but what you can do on an MPC is far more and honestly easier.

Bangin' sounds, user friendly, classic beats!

Product Review

This is one of my fave drum machines, ever. It's heavy on the classic hip-hop beats, but with so many kits available it's easy to dial in something unique. I like to mute/unmute the synths and one-shots in real-time to build patterns. Each pattern has two loops (verse/chorus) plus a fill. Transitioning between parts is easily done with the touch of a single button, or use a footswitch if you have a guitar in your hands. It is SO FUN to play through the PA in the practice room, keeps the human drummer tight. I love this thing and will recommend it highly.

BANGING sound

Product Review

This thing makes FL Studio and Reason sound like girl farts. If you're looking for your drum sound to have that extra pop and hit that you can't seem to get through EQ and compression plugins in your DAW, this is the way to go. It sounds professional, crisp and LOUD. I only left off one start because there is no velocity sensitivity in the pads, which I really wish it had. But even without that, THE SOUND, man. Makes it worth it. I got this thing because I got tired of endlessly auditioning drum hits out of sample packs, I just want to make good sounding drums and be done with it. If you're in the market because you're tired of your beats not banging, give this thing a chance. Within minutes of taking it out of the box, years of problems are just over like that.
