MusicLab RealStrat : seb.petit1's user review


Value For Money : Excellent
No particular concern, the interface is relatively clear and the controls are intuitive or explicit manual (pdf) who appeared well done because I quickly found the little info that I had to look.

1 large month of use, he replied quite to my needs:
- I play music at best a once a week, especially prog rock, with guitar or there is a need

160 euros on their website, very good value for money, especially if I compare to my dilemma out: software or real guitar, amp and some real progress ... no photo.

I would do this choice unless I had enough time and money to invest myself in the guitar, the real ...
