"FL Keys is a poorly executed disappointment"

FL Keys is a dumpster fire. It does not work right out of the box. The company does not provide a manual so you have to search for the website to know where you can download the software. Then you have to track down online tutorials to learn how to map channel inputs correctly. After that adventure you have to try to work your magic with FL Studio even though the software lacks any innovative samples and is instead filled to the brim with basic elements you can find in every other DAW. Most people don't want to reinvent the wheel every time they start a project. It would be nice to have something to inspire you and get the creative juices flowing. On top of all that the button mapping is illogical and there is a never ending feeling of bewilderment as I wished I could change something that can not be changed. Certain buttons might as well be set in stone. It felt like the company treats customers like children by saying: "How dare you question my decisions? We know what's best for you. Now stfu and do it our way with these basic building blocks." FL Keys is an exotic torture device designed to break your spirit by drowning you in mediocrity. Treat this device like drugs. Stay away and warn anyone considering it to avoid this foolish path.
The sounds are so basic and it did not match my musical style.
The sound library and included samples are far too simple. The instruments are below the quality needed to create a masterpiece. This piece of equipment is so useless I wouldn't give to a child.
Ease of Use
The learning curve is sharper than a 3 piece suit. A manual is not provided. You have to figure out everyting on your own or track down tutorials.
Construction is of the hard plastic variety and is resistant to fingerprints.
This should be $70 considering how bad it is. It's only saving grace is the construction. Everything else falls short.
Manufacturer Support
Customer support was laughable. There was no manual included and by the time customer service responded I already found the answer to my question on a forum or a video tutorial.
The Wow Factor
I returned this after 7 days and would never buy this again.
