Although this is very well made etc. I find the sounds too synthetic two dimensional and the myriad of presets is just too much. But hey, that's just me, I'm sure others think this is amazing and record with it all the time.
really inspirational bit of kit. can play straight out of the box and get into the groove with no fuss. super easy to navigate and some fantastic original drum sounds. pads are responsive and bouncy. solid construction- feels well made. I definitely need to get a kick pedal to go with this though. this is going to take my productions to a new level I think cos being able to add the feel of playing live will make the programmed beats feel more organic. I wish it had 6 audio outputs though!
great everything i expected
