"Keith McMillen 12 Step"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
This foot controller is packed with features, but the reason why I really bought it was for a way to easily dive in and map/program different functions using Ableton Live. This is a perfect controller for those looking for a pedal to progress their live looping skills. It is easily mappable and user friendly. If one would also like to use the sounds of the synth within it as well, it is definitely worth it.
Musical Background:
