Sound Quality
The DAC's on this device gives the sound an extra "punch". And with the EQ and compressor turned on this devise gets evil! The pads is not as sensitive as i would have wanted, but they work.
The prior OS'es have been buggy and caused this unit to crash an a daily basis, but now it seems unstopable. After working with this unit i have moved all my work on to it from my mac. I found it perfect for a all-round machine after i installed the 128mb ram and 2gb memory. The unit is firmly build (faceplate is metal) and the pads (on the inside) are resting on a sturdy metal frame. When the unit is run on batteries it tends to restart when i smack it to hardm i think the batteries jumps around a little.
General Comments
If my unit where to get stolen, i would certainly get it back!!! It's the center piece of my setup! I love that it is so easy to use (i know everybody else says it's difficult to use, i can not se why?). I hate the customor support, sux.
