Customer Reviews
4 out of 5 (15 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
"Great product abandoned by its creators."
Sound: This is a really neat and unique product (I have two of the controllers, to set up a sound library on two workstations) but its developer (Native Instruments) just discontinued it to focus on more me-too products like beat-making. Poor business decision. Horrible execution in regards to hoe they've treated their users in this situation. Feature: I wish it weren't discontinued. Ease of Use: Maybe complex at first glance but it's actually quite logical. Quality: The first controller was less than perfect with the buttons being a bit mushy but I read that this new version was just fine (I wish I had one). Value: this is truly a unique product with no parallel in the market. a foolish move by NI to discontinue it. Manufacturer Support: Check out the forums... I've read that phone support is good but email support is horrible. I've never contacted support. The Wow Factor: It's a pretty slick device but I hear that the newer controller (version 2) is an improvement over my original version, so I guess it's more sexy in the version on sale here. Overall: I hate that it was discontinued and the way in which the developers handled the discontinuation.

"Discontinued by Native Instruments"
Overall: Native Instruments suddenly discontinued this software/hardware system. Future NI software will not be integrated with this product. Therefore making it virtually useless.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

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.
