Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I have been so productive since I got the touch. The software is easy to learn, the pads feel good, and the touch screen is a nice touch. I wish I could record midi straight into to logic but hey nothing is perfect. I would definitely recommend this product. Big thanks to zZounds for letting me pay over time.
