"Overall great item hands down."
I have two of these and I would definitely buy again.
Sound
Great sound when recording vocals or instruments - especially at 32 bit with Cubase. vst instruments sound wonderful and audio gear tracked in sounds great too.
Features
Being able to custom map the controller knobs and sliders and also having templates with the enigma software. portability and the keys feel good for a controller too - not flimsy cheap.
Ease of Use
Setup easily on my pc & mac. I interchange all the time - just plug it up, then turn it on and i don't have to shutdown the computer. the new drivers are flawless.
Quality
I have two of these - there that flexible
Value
