JimboSpins's review"Rhizome LE vs Rhizome SXE"

Feeltune Rhizome LE
The Feeltune Rhizome LE is more of a watered down version of the Feeltune Rhizome SXE. It cost less than the SXE version but it lacks some serious options that the SXE has. With the Feeltune Rhizome LE you are still getting your 32 knobs and 16 velocity sensitive pads, but the main difference with it is you must use it with a PC or a Mac. It does not even have a quad core drive in it nor does it have the i5 processor which makes it slower than the SXE version is. The price of the Feeltune Rhizome LE is much more appealing than the SXE version is because it only cost 1200 dollars. The Feeltune Rhizome LE was the original unit that I was interested in until the guy at the store told me just to go with the SXE instead.

UTILIZATION

Using the Feeltune Rhizome LE is a lot easier than trying to figure out all of the functions of the SXE. I pretty much understood how to use the Feeltune Rhizome LE in the hour that I spent messing with it.

SOUNDS

You can still use your VST’s with the Feeltune Rhizome LE but in order to really use it to its full potential you will need to have it working with your computer. That was the main reason that I didn’t want to get it because I wanted a unit that could work stand alone without the computer if needed.

OVERALL OPINION

The Feeltune Rhizome LE is well built and has a very clean design and look to it. All of the knobs and pads are well made and I don’t see any issues coming up with this unit at all. I do suggest getting a good case for it because it seems to be very fragile. So if you are a DJ make sure you take good care of this when moving it around.

stompboxjon's review"Great software / hardware combo"

Feeltune Rhizome LE
I have recently started using the Feeltune Rhizome LE; it is great for a stage performance or for a studio session. It has 16 buttons that you can use to control your session and all of the buttons are backlit. The Feeltune Rhizome LE is VST compatible and can work great with both your Mac and your PC. It comes with rhizome OS2 software, which I do not use that much. It has a built in sequencer, drum machine, synths, and plenty of effects to use. The display screen on the Feeltune Rhizome LE is pretty big; it is a full color screen that makes navigation a breeze. All of your controls are in real time; it is pretty much letting you forget about your mouse. Just start tweaking knobs on the Feeltune Rhizome LE and let the fun happen.

UTILIZATION

The software that comes with it does install easily and quickly. It does seem to operate a little different on my PC than it does on my Mac. On my PC it installed quicker but runs a little slower and on my Mac in installed a little slower but runs quicker. But it has never crashed on either of my systems and works great.

SOUNDS

The effects are pretty good for the price range that it cost. I use them a lot now every since I got a chance to own the Feeltune Rhizome LE.

OVERALL OPINION

The Feeltune Rhizome LE is a great hardware and software integrated unit. You can assign all of the buttons and switches to whatever you want them to control in your software. I have used the Feeltune Rhizome LE with about 4 different DAW programs and it has never given me an issue with any of them. The Feeltune Rhizome LE does cost a little more than a lot of other units that are similar but it is more user friendly and better built.

SOUNDS

the sound is nikel! the stereo effect that integrates the mixer mas rhizome is wrong, I like it!!'s equalizer and compressor do their job! the pir if we do not like it but a vst

View site.
The rhizome consists of an output USB3 which liaises with the computer, but also for the source video screen embedded in the rhizome. That's it.
The rest ultimately depends on the computer you have (sound card and various ports)

UTILIZATION

The configuration is quite simple.il must install some apps on pc or mac, these apps will then scan your folders VSt to make your plugs accessible from your Rhizome.
The machine is simple enough to grip with many features. It really is a mix between the feeling of boxes in the old rhythms), Korg, Yamaha and other current and softs (Abelton, etc. ..).

This gives a highly ergonomic and truly complete.
Being ableton live user since a while, was really a pleasure to play on the rhizome. It really is much more fun and creative than live with any soft controller.

SOUNDS

It all depends on samples and Fx you use, however, namely that the Rhizome includes a comprehensive mixer with Fx insert, bus etc. ..

OVERALL OPINION

How long do you use?
Few months, but I had versionUXE before (I went to the LE version because I'm used to the Universe Mac)

Have you tried many other models before buying it?
korg electribe ES1, EMX, EM1, Yamaha rs7000, Jomox airbase, fruity loops, reason, ableton and launchpad with controller Vcm600 kaoss pad

What feature do you like most?,

I found new features compared to Ableton hand and it changes your life:
First re-move each pattern can be composed of vst samplers or completely different (at the expense of Abelton). One can for example have pattern1 composed of a sampler with 1 Kicka a line of hat, a snare, and 2 with a massive plugin preset A and B then pattern2 totally different (eg with a different sampler kick B ( Kick A Sampler is no longer present), with four massive presets CDEF, a discovery, pro ..) This leaves playability unheard.
More when we pass from one pattern to the other positions of the "mute" or "solo" each pattern is totally independent of each other (we just start with the kick patt ern1 mutated and pattern 2 it will Kick enabled, but the mutated synth for example).

Ability to synchronize the machine with Ableton Live or route audio from ableton to the rhizome and vice versa.

Ability to edit directly from the machine Vst (also possible using a mouse on the screen) and change the bank directly from the rhizome.
Opportunity to play two simultanéments project and ancer in patterns / parts of each.
It really is possible to dispense completely screen pc in 80% of cases!

The least?

The software is not a vst .. shame, no rewire (it takes a little tweaking to sync)
There is no possibility to load the samples if desired with the mouse or edit patterns and the piano roll with the mouse (it could be a time saver in some cases no doubt ...)
Vst some name recognition.
Personally I would have added a series of button / knob further as a midi controller with direct access to effects.

How would you rate the quality / price ratio?
Really correct, but the software that are very innovative could be even better, with for example the possibility to choose colors for parts / paterns, the ability to take control with the mouse if necessary directly on the computer, the possibility of choose the position of parts ...

May be a small latency buttons? (I'm usb2, usb3 machine is ce'st it may be ..)

With experience, you do again this choice? ...
Without hesitation, this is by far my best purchase! I know of no equivalent to this day. You dreamed, they did ^ ^! MErci and!
