    Customer Reviews
    4.5 out of 5 (10 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
    zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Good lord!"
    Sound: I have to admit, I'm in love!! digging through sounds to find the right one is a very small price to pay for such a kick @ss plug in!! first off, the orchestra sound are unbelivable, the nuances areincredible in their detail. you can hear the vibrato and bow strokes!! love it!! the electronic sounds are cool, though you have to sift thru them as alot of them are quite basic and similar sounding, however you can stack 16 instruments, so if you can find a sound you want for that particular beat, you can make it!!! Feature: It included exactly what you need, 8 gb of instruments, 5000+ patches is all the features I need! Ease of Use: plug it in a start playing, as simple as that. obviously if your buying it, you probably have plug in experience already, and thats all you need. Quality: This thing is the best money I have spent since I started building my studio. it's hard to beat 256 note of poly. in a synth plug-in! Value: It isn't even expensive considering the fantom, (which I have is over a thousand bucks) and has 4 times as many sounds! I still love my fantom though, it they compliment each other well Manufacturer Support: haven't been able to use yet. The Wow Factor: This tool is one of the most inspirational I have used in a LONG time! I've had to use it on FL studio while I wait for the Intel Mac patch to be released and I have made some of the best beats I've ever made just in the few days I've had it!! Overall: This product is worth every penny if not more! it's awesome, I produce hip hop beats and if you have a creative mind this thing will blow you away!
    Style of Music: Hip-hop

    Thank you. Your vote has been counted. Could you briefly tell us why the review was or was not helpful?

    "Great when combined with SampleTank - enough stock sounds to make hot beats..."
    Sound: The sounds are obviously geared towards the synth/electronic side, but you can still come up with some REALLY useful sounds for any genre (I produce Hip Hop). While something like this can't compete with a keyboard, it definately has so many useable sounds that I don't think any other product comes close to it. Feature: I'm pretty happy with the features. I have Halion as my main sampler, and I gotta be honest, I can't figure out how to make the most out of it! It's just too complex...But sampletank and sonik synth do a good job of being easy to use and create new presets/sounds. Quality: No complaints here Value: It is a bit expensive, but like I said, I can't think of too many products that give you SOO many sounds for this price range...Certainly alot will not be useful, but many are. Manufacturer Support: Haven't needed.

    zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
