Great gear

Urmuz, 17.09.2014
It depends on the features you want. I say its a very well done gear..it doesn t look cheap. It has cool features, and once you get the hang of it it will be peace of cake.
Still waiting for the firmware upgrade and Fileloader.

I am using this product fro a month or so and managed to see all the great features.
With every sample you can eve a lot of parameteres to change , if you want of course - volume, pan, reverb, midi note change, velocity, play mode [1 shot, hold, loop], filtes, envelope, track start and end..and other more.
It has the features to recod and use those sounds in your pads. It has seperate main outs as well as recording ports. Volume and REC gain.
The big disadvantage is that it take some time to load the samples from the SD card.So when you change from one kit to another and the samples are from the SD card it take up to 10-20 seconds to load - according to the samples ofcourse, but for the sounds that are internally its instant :)
Great finish and good materials.

Decent sampler for a low price.

Hatcho, 25.11.2017
+ Cheap
+ Overall sound quality is ok (not amazing)
+ Pretty hands on, not hard to get the workflow
- Factory samples included are pretty poor and/or boring
- The built-in reverb is atrocious

Once you've uploaded your own samples into the machine, this is a very decent 16 pad sampler for a nice price. Nothing more, nothing less.
