    Great product and service

    Posted by CoMtnShredder on Jan 3rd 2017

    Product definitely has a lot of bells and whistles, and will take some time to get figured out, but the product's quality, and Front End's service and communication was top notch!

    Steep Learning Curve but great for the serious

    Posted by Matt Hui on Oct 4th 2016

    This thing is a visual / audio marvel. You'll need to have a grasp of using Ableton in order to use it. If you are able to code all the different samples you want on it, it'll serve you well. If you know Madeon -- he's super pro at using it.
