Read the manual! If you don't read the manual, you will probably get frustrated. Motion sequence is hard to learn but once you get the hang of it, you will be unstoppable. Slicing works best with drums. Otherwise, you could put together a dope pattern in a matter of minutes.
The sound quality is good. The sample rate(3200)is OKAY. The effects are nice and the preset sample quality is way above par as far as some samplers go.
It is a plastic sampler with knobs that feel like you could break them off. It has a metal face but that is only for looks. Mine has been through much and it still works with no problems. It is build very well, however I don't know how durable it is but no problems so far.
This is a great sampler for beginners like myself. There are some limitations but don't give up because you will learn how to work around them. This would work well for learning about samplers and how they work. This thing is fun and easy to use and would be a great first sampler before an MPC.
