Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I plan to use this product for quite a while. It has the quality and flexibility I need.
Excellent quality sounds, regardless of the beat or style.
The search and ability to categorize samples is nice.
Ease of Use
Amazingly easy to use. One good sound and drum technique leads to another!
Haven't experienced any glitches with the software itself, but noticed a slight "bite" at the end of saved samples in .wav format. But I can live with that.
The price is a bit steep, but you're purchasing a specialized product. This isn't just some generic drum machine. The quality shows.
Manufacturer Support
Have not needed any support.
The Wow Factor
If you want quality sound and a nice good variety of drum sounds/beats, then you should consider this product.
