Sound: You can crank this thing up to the max, and it won't clip or distort. Plenty of "out of the box" sounds and samples that are crystal clear and fully manipulative. LPF, HPF, and BPF are great...I didn't expect three to be in this lil unit. The effects are cool, but I haven't found a use for them yet because....well....it's a sampler, and the sounds I use are generally already...effect-ed?? Feature: I actually expected this unit to be plastic (that's how it looks in the photos), but it is constructed from an aluminum alloy and is quite heavy. The knobs are very tight and solid with no wiggle. They are plastic, and a couple of the knobs are slightly an imperfect circle. The level on the knobs are hard to see since they are just depressed without color change. (Have to paint them) It DOES come with two 5-pin midi to 1/8 midi adapters to keep in sync with everything else. Ease of Use: It's a lil confusing and daunting to use without using the manual, but quite easy one you know your way around. It comes with a manual, but do yourself a favor and download the Parameters Guide manual from the website as well for further details and expansion on how to use this. Quality: I honestly wouldn't be afraid of dropping this lil guy. It is built like a tank. You can feel the high quality from the moment you pick it up. Metal case, durable knobs, clear screen.....Korg really did a great job with this guy. The trigger pads and buttons are thick and can take a beating. I'm not afraid of really pounding on the pads! The XY pad though....ehhhh, I'm not sure of yet. It feels like the cover is made of a cheap sheet of plastic that will eventually split or crack....guess we'll find out. Value: The quality, functionalities, and sound make this unit an impressive steal. It's packed with a large amount of features at the cost of one of the older 1999 ESX units. Definitely worth the money! Manufacturer Support: I haven't had a reason to contact support on this device, but I have on other devices and I'm not impressed. I'm still waiting on a response from two weeks ago. The Wow Factor: The overall design, workflow, quality, and sound is just excellent. Has neat multicolor led lights under it that flash different colors in sync with your music too....nice lil feature. Overall: From the moment I held the box, I was impressed....it only got more impressive the longer I used it. Read on....

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as you Pay® installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as you Pay® plans.
