"Not bad for the price"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
This unit works well for basic audio playback, looping and Cueing. The time-stretch with pitch lock is a nice feature and fun to play with. You can bring your audio down to granular levels with the time stretch, it is a cool tool to create unique and strange sounds from your existing MP3 library. Multiple loop points come in handy for doing live remixes. Pros: Bright and clean screen with waveform and informationEasy looping and cueing Comfortable platterHigh USB compatibility & fast (instant) load timesCons: Occasionally the BPM detect isn’t spot-on, but can be easily adjustedLong boot-up time (?)I’ve had it freak out once; playing an MP3 at super high speed on its own when no audio was playingI purchased this deck to add simple scratching to my mixes and tracks, it is surprisingly decent at this. I’m sure a more expensive deck would provide more realistic scratching but for the price, I’m keeping this thing. It is a fun beginner deck with some easy-to-use and functional extra features.
