Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (53 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "what i've been waiting for."
Sound: the synths and samples are all top notch. psyn produces a wide range of great sounds. cyclone does all kinds great slicing with ACIDized loops or just sounds. Feature: plenty of effects, though some of them don't seem as useful. the tracer doesn't so much thin sounds as advertised, but rather puts a wobbly effect on the sound. audio effects like delay and the LFO can be timed to the project, which is nice. Quality: every once in a while i discover something wierd. for example, the cyclone synth (which totally rocks). triggers a new instance of a loop from clicking a pad with the mouse and using a midi controller, so a loop started with the controller can't be stopped with the mouse and vice versa. Value: it's a little pricey, but i'd say it's worthwhile.
Style of Music: electo/industrial

Ease of Use: 10 becose only this workstation is the most easy to use.You can locate everythink on one screen display!Effects,track,VST's,all and rest on one display.Every icon is ajustable however you like to and you can set all staff wherever you like to.EASY!For exsample Sonar-7,Reason -7,Alberton -6,Cubase-4,and so on down...Ther is just nothing to ask for or look for.I like clear and logical display construction. Quality: Sometime it hang and stability is 8 like my opinion here. Value: I try several workstation VST hosts Manufacturer Support: Any problems I had just disapeared on cakewalk support webpage. The Wow Factor: The best looking workstation can be find enywere.No skins option but it's not so important here. Overall: Low price,possibility,instruments and effects,sound quality,easy of use,nice look and more with only one minus->stability!Save project offen .Even with this minus it's shows the best choise in softsynth in this price range for sure.
