All I can say is that i was extremely excited to check this VI(Virtual Instrument) out when I heard about it and read the reviews! I was totally shocked at how poor of a plug-in it actually was. the drum sounds are some of the most pathetic sounds I've ever heard even on a Casio Keyboard! they somehow decided to take the same drum sounds and simply change the pitch and call them new drum kits. the basses sound cheesy and the only thing thats halfway decent in this VI is the keyboards. So do yourself a favor stay away from this terrible product and for the price just stick with the rob papen stuff!
This program has a great GUI! But for the price you can get a better bang for the buck with FL Studio.Playa is very limited the keyboard sounds are extremely weak. You cant load your own sound-you would have to buy another program they make playa to do that. You will be able to make some beats with the program, but in the near future you will be board with that cookie cut-out sound
I am real new to making beats but this thing really got me started. I figured out how to get the sounds on there quick and I made some tracks with it already. When I pull up a bass sound and make it kick with the drums it sounds so nice and the house shakes. Man let me tell you how much I am loving this. It's only been like a few days but now I have my own original music that I can rap to it helps my poetry flow and really gets me going I'm truly expressing myself for real.
This was a nice addition to my home set up. Easy interface, decent presets, with some effects your on your way. Would consider again and again (if they were to add add/change the sounds).
