Sound Quality
Reliability/Durability
Crappy. Even with a MAC. Worked PERFECTLY well on OS9. After upgrading to OS X, the interface stopped working properly. Missing presses, releases, etc. Numerous OS reinstalls, driver reinstalls, installation of older versions and everything in between. No MIDI loops or jams; It's just FUBAR'ed. You can't compromise with the PANIC button whenever a key got stuck -the thing trips on itself so much that I couldn't get any usable performance from it regardless of the device I'm controlling. With such fragility to software changes, this isn't going to be your 'best friend'. You could be one update away from your MIDI being crippled.

General Comments
ugh. If it works right, it works well. Baffling how they could design something so nice but not survive an OS upgrade. If your cashflow depends on your MIDI interface, keep your distance.
