Well worth the purchase
by Da Host from Savannah, GAI just hooked this up today and was up and running in no time. I have yet to look at the manual which speaks volumes of the ease of use.

I use it along with a Project Mix and keyboard with no problems. You can play the sounds on either or which is good. It's a controller so it does what it's supposed to do. I use it to control Reason 4 so for anyone deciding between this and the 24 I would say the few extra dollars are worth it. Think in terms of future use and you won't be buying something twice. Overall it's a good product with a solid feel. I would recommend anyone to do their homework and be sure it fits your needs now and in the future. close [-]
