Allright, I am also new tot this group, but read a LOT of your posts -thanks and felt the urge to respond. Okay I have this device probably three weeks now. I made ten tracks/loops and this machine is very productive. I am an Ableton user and had Push. This is more immediate, hands on and much more fun, albeit a little more cumbersome sometimes editing stuff. The way you create beats is really fast and please give yourself time to know how to create variations in programs and setup the Q-links right and it will kill all Ellektron/Korg electribe stuff. Been there. You must give it a month or two.
No single crash,
Midi as master has been rock solid, didn't tets it as a slave. Tested it with ultranova and korg keys. (check sync settting in menu)
Records midi cc no problem,
Assign midi CC to q-links no problem
Working with the grid gets faster and faster.
Pad perform works with midi and is a life saver.
Used clips as in ableton, launch them in time with programs
Finger drums, no latency on the pads
On the fly audio recording works great (but you need to press record instead of overdub)
Fx are really quite ok.
Loop recording and overdubbing is fun
Saving to internal drive and saving to compact flash
Reads and writes my usb drive.
Illogical things in menu, no biggies
There is some small latency when recording adio, very fast to fix when editing starting points
Browser could be better with tagging
Stand alone reverb is not that good (mono)
No USB midi -out (Ipad) USB in only with class compliant controllers.
No biggie for me, but no warping with drumprograms
No editing automation in standalone, but automation editing with the step sequencer could be the definite answer to p-locking.
Please Do understand this is such impressive and deep machine, by the time you have all the muscle memory, all bugs have been ironed out.
