UTILIZATION

The general configuration is it simple?

Yes, relatively intuitive

Editing sounds and effects is it easy?

Via the software is rather simple, we must live to learn, but the handling and quick.

The manual is clear and sufficient?

Clear enough to read once.

SOUNDS

The A / D converters and D / A are transparent?

Digital and no more.

The effects and filters are effective?

According to taste, too digital for me.

The dynamics are respected? the distorted sounds is a bit destructive.

OVERALL OPINION

How long have you use it?

3, 4.

What is so special that you love the most, least?

the +
Very good machine to play loops, the pads are of good quality and capacity of memory cards with is impressive.

The -

Nullisime when it comes to playing one shot, if you want to drum kits on the pads you will be disappointed. The effects are of poor quality, the beam of gadget is very unclear, the function loop average catch too.

Have you tried many other models before buying it?

I also have a MK2 Electribe, the two machines complement the MKE for one-shot and the sp 555 for loops.

How would you rate the quality / price? With experience, you do again this choice?

A bit expensive but it's probably one of the best samplers for loop, very easy to use and assignment of samples through the software is very simple. For loop-based music is perfect (not to create but to play live). The camera is good quality and robust, the pads are pretty good size and comfortable use even though I'd recommend buying a foot.

UTILIZATION

A little confusing at first, especially when one has never used sampler. But the record is very precise and detailed. So no problem, in the end.

SOUNDS

See global opinion.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it to send jingles on my radio show. I do not use it as a sampler.
This is why it suits me very well.
