Customer Reviews

This is dumb

I seriously thought I was buying the drum machine itself. This is the operating instructions for a $300 program you buy for the PC or MAC. I have spent less than a third of that on multiple MIDI compatible apps for my iPad. I have the Korg-ims20, Rebirth, Nsynth Pro, Korg Electribe, and Djay Pro, just to name a few. Why would I ever pay hundreds of dollars for a program like this. This is crap, get with the program. I'm only giving it one star because I have to put something.
