Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (40 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great fun, but not for professionals."
Sound: All the sounds are good, though a lot of the voices are just minor alterations to basic sounds like piano, saxophone or whatever. Feature: The big thing it lacks is dedicated line output jacks. There is only a stereo headphone/output jack. I was also very disappointed to discover that 100 of the 676 advertised "voices" are available only if you control it from a computer. Quality: I have not had the MU15 very long, but it looks like an average Walkman as far as constructiona and quality. I suspect that many of the controls will stop working after a year of repeated use. The volume control is a tiny slider - that is really ridiculous. Value: It is definitely worth the price I paid for it, and its lower price matches its somewhat limited features. The Wow Factor: It is fun, and sounds good, but it is not a professional tool. Overall: This fills my current needs, for a basic multi-timbral, polyphonic sound module with a variety of sounds, and it is helping me learn how to use my various MIDI equipment. I will definitely buy another product sometime in the next two years that is larger and more pro-oriented.
Style of Music: Country & blues guitar, jazz and classical singer, experimental electronic composer

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.
