To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Got a 'damaged/open' box unit- however download software product only (no disk) and serial number has been used and registered (as I suspect they will have been on all the open box returns, there are loads of them)- Amazon seemed to have missed the fact that this is 'software' the real product here is the 'software' and once someone has used the serial it can not be registered or used so is in effect an open box product is probably useless - just a door stop without the software.
I confirm other reviewers and the NI forum that the firmware updater doesn't work properly in Windows 10. The online support states that the system will revert to the previous firmware, but it doesn't work on mine. It's now locked up. A workaround is apparently to update using a MAC OS which I don't have. If I can't find a friend with a mac then unfortunately the unit is going back. I think it's a common problem, so if you do buy one, and you use Windows, I recommend not accepting the suggestion to update firmware. It's a shame because if it worked as per spec then it would be great. I already use Maschine software with an NI controller and they're great pieces of kit.
Don't know what people are on about on here. All the software installed fine for me so they must have purchased the warehouse ones just to save a few quid and then found out the software had already been used.
Lovely piece of kit as ive just upgraded from the micro mk 2. The pads feel so much better and the buttons actually make sense now. So easy to use and with the supplied maschine 2 software youll be making tunes in no time.
Excellent device, great value. Ignore the weird stuff from other reviewers, it works fine with Windows 10 and Amazon send you a perfectly fine device that registers the software fine. A fantastic entry into music production. Can’t believe other people have given it 1/5 because it has ‘no instructions’ or the fact it isn’t a midi player even though it doesn’t say it is ,maybe they should buy fisher price. I knew what I had ordered and I’m very pleased with it,any struggles I have our my own as producing music isn’t easy. The hardware is responsive,intuitive and excellent
Started producing 11 years ago in FL, moved to Reason within 6 months and continued to until 3 months ago, Thought i would test out Maschine so got this to try on a 5 months plan and wow, everything becomes so simple using this, faster, smoother, easier to lay down. Regret the last few years still using Reason now, im churning out beats for fun now and making back the £££. Cannot recommend this and Studio One 4 enough. Work wonderfully together
Sometimes you take a risk buying used stuff and in this case this had happened to me unfortunately and I've had to return this controller which doesn't function properly and no way to re-register the device as the serial number and faded. This doesn't take away the fact that it's a good product. It's just unfortunately I got the rotten egg.
Bought it as a birthday present for my other half. He loves it. I unfortunately don't know anything about stuff like that but he says it is a good equipment for making music at home and it is totally worth the price.
