- The installation is done it without problems?
Few clicks and go!
- Have you experienced any incompatibilities?
None yet.
- The general configuration is easy?
The configuration tabs are very explicit and grouped in a single window, the parameters are small but there really is not need more.
- The manual is clear and sufficient? ...
You read the manual? Seriously, there is no manual but there is no need either, when the pointer passes over each button, a help text is displayed and if not found, configuring shortcuts to find happiness.
A small problem to find the channels MIDI, one little button to access it.

- What is the configuration of your computer? (Motherboard / CPU / Ram / Disk / sound card ..)
MSI, Intel Sempron, 512 MB, 150 GB, 202 Emu
- The software works he correctly on this configuration?
The software works fine, however it is necessary to be careful at the instruments
virtual tend to be too high by default, which causes distortion
very quickly. (You just have to lower their volume)
- What performance? (If quantifiable)
Very fast, Live in the playing of virtual instruments (no effect) with the MIDI keyboard was causing latency impressive having reduced the size of the buffer maximum problem I have yet to meet with energyXT.
- This software + hardware is stable?
No crashes encountered some problems are still present, the reverberation is preserved from one instrument to another, simply play a note and change the instrument of the track to see the ripple effect keeps crumbs of the above instrument, so I recommend you remove the instrument while playing,
the note will remain on hold throughout your session ...

- How long have you use it?
3 days is not much but I had time to tour the main features.
- What is so special that you like most and least?
The price the simplicity of handling and excellent interface of my expanders (JV1010 and Orbit V1), you can edit all MIDI CC with curves like that of the velocity of notes and the program also supports the change of instrument.
- Have you tried many other models before buying it?
Yes, I tried FL Studio 8, Ableton Live 4 and 8, Steinberg Sequel ...
- How would you rate the quality / price?
Huge, it's really great for beginners and others.
- With experience, you do again this choice? ...
I guess, but it's still too early to answer ...
