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.
Beware!! If you buy one of these from the Amazon Warehouse it does not have the software and its not mentioned in the description.
I've just bought one of these in the Amazon Warehouse (described as used like new), but it does not include the software as stated. When i contacted Amazon technical support they said that the previous owner must have registered it so there was nothing they could do.
I asked for a replacement, but they are refusing and will only accept a return (i'm guessing so that they can sell it on to another unsuspecting customer)
I'd love to review the item properly, as i've heard good things about Presonus, but without the software its just an expensive plastic box with knobs on!
Ero preso benissimo nel mettermi a studiare questo bel bundle di PreSonus e farmi un piccolo studio casalingo. Purtroppo la cosa più importante, la scheda audio, è risultata difettosa e sono costretto ad un reso. Il microfono non l'ho testato, ma come qualità costruttiva è buono ma nulla di eccellente. Nota positiva per il controller che mi ha fatto un ottima impressione, è incluso un breve corso con Melodic per imparare ad usarlo, è un vero e proprio strumento musicale, da considerare. A me è andata male, do una stella per il pessimo controllo qualità, avrei voluto tenerlo ma non mi è possibile.
Device seemed to fit the bill and I was excited to try it. It was a returned item and described as fully functioning with cosmetic flaws. Unfortunately it was not fully functioning as one of the pads was unresponsive. Returned. May purchase again as I was impressed by the quality and what did function seemed to function well. I will buy a new one next time... waiting for a sale :)
I did not receive the USB connection cord with my Product. Very dissatisfied. This is unacceptable. I was told I would have to send my purchase back in order to receive the Cord. That is not an option after registration of this Product! Unacceptable! I will rate this purchase as 1 Star until I receive a New USB Plug. I AM A PRIME CUSTOMER. I PAY ALOT OF MONEY TO INSURE MY PURCHASES ARE DELIVERED AS ADVERTISED.
Overly complicated hardware and software. Not for beginner or those just starting in audio editing. Even for a musician who's day job is tech support (me) found it overly complex to perform simple functions like beat loop creation. I've utilize several other programs for beat creation in the past and in comparison there was literally 0 intuitive functionality between the board and the software for this unit. Once I got a drum kit loaded into the board attempting to create a simple beat with a click track is near impossible because of the delay. (This may have been my PC, but I didn't have the same issues when I utilized my keyboard instead of the sound board.) A half second to 2 second delay between button press and noise. For a musician listening to a click track this is simply maddening. So I ditched the board and tried to make a beat loop with just the software, which was possible, but again, not intuitive AT ALL and overly complex. The software does come with a ton of different drum kits, sounds, clips and all sorts of things pre loaded but fffff man, not for beginners or possibly not even intermediate audio editors. If you're interested in this product, plan on a HUGE learning curve unless you're already familiar with a previous version of the software. Ended up returning it because of the board press to sound delay. Impossible to use with that (Again that may have been my PC or I had a bad board.)
