Purchased at Freehold Music Center in NJ when it first came out for about $900.00. You might be able to get if for less.

All in all, AWESOME! I have to say that I am, by far, no expert in Recording equipment, but I have had two pieces before this one. If you're interested in recording songs in your home and burning them to CD's, this is a great toy. It has built in effects which were better than I expected, a built-in drum kit which is okay, excellent sound, excellent edit features, and it is very simple to use. I have spent hundreds of hours using this thing, and I'm still learning new things about it. No mechanical bugs, no problems like that whatsoever.

My only request would be for the unit to allow more options with percussion. It has a large variety of beats (more than I could ever use)and you can control the tempo. There are some beats though that are in my head that I have not been able to replicate with the machine.


Well worth the money if you're into this stuff. Ten tracks with each having eight virtual tracks is more than enough for me. I can't recommend this product enough.
