Well, I nearly never because I didn't want to appear as just some new user coming on to the forums just to slate NI, but I just feel 1) miss-sold on what the Maschine can do and what it's for, and 2) Stupid for not looking into it more before buying. I mean, when I bought it I even thought "ahh well, if I don't click with the Maschine program, at least I'll have a pretty decent MIDI controller..." then I find out MIDI mode wasn't out, then when it was there is absolutely no way of configuring it, so its useless for that too. On a positive note because I don't like too much negativity, the unit itself is a really nice tidy unit, the pads are fantastic, as a loop making unit it's pretty good (even though only about half my VSTs show up in Maschine?) the ability to set the scales when in keyboard mode is awesome, and the chords mode is really fun too. But I think thats about it... at the moment it's just a kinda fun toy.
