Definitely worth the buy


This is perfect for my beat production! I use it for sampling. I love how compact it is, makes it easy to throw inside my backpack and go.

Amazing i would recomend this product


Pretty easy to use



Never tried before.


I was originally going to use this product for a podcast as something to input sound effects when the time came. Sort of like a soundboard. Well, that didn't turn out what I thought it would. To start with, this product was easy to setup on a Mac. Plug it in, follow the directions. Quick and easy. Even brought me to a web page to try it out. On a PC, it was more of a struggle as I had to find drivers and even setting them up didn't work as well as I'd like. it's doable, just more of an annoyance. The next trick was getting it to work with Ableton Live. This gives you a lite version, with only 8 tracks available to make at once (8-track?) but it does detect it. Just, not as it showed on the screen. The keys part worked as it emulated a keyboard successfully. But, the drums were odder in that I still had to use the keys setting to have access. The drums had all the sounds mapped in odd locations. Ableton is a bit daunting for those used to things like Garageband or Audition (speaking of which, I find it odd this device can't be used in Audition). For someone who has never used one of these before, I had a lot of fun setting it up and experimenting with it. I even use it now to make some hip hop beats I can study with. It's also nice and portable, easy to take with you, and it doesn't seem like it's fragile. I enjoyed it, and the help I got that day was fantastic. Thanks a bunch!



I will definitely buy again!!!


Awesome purchase and customer service!!!



I would 100 percent buy this product again


I have zero complaints about this product there are no negatives that I have came across yet . Super easy to use and a lot of fun
