I have two sets of these on a very complex pedalboard that has been through over 50 gigs by this point, never had a failure, and there's enough cable to reconfigure with different lengths at a later stage.

A Page turner that refuses to change mode

Reviewed by on

I ordered one of these and could not get it to change to Mode 3 that I need for my android app. I could not get it to do so and contacted the manufacturer. They asked the usual silly questions to solve the problem but when none worked they recommended sending it back to Raru. Raru then sent it to their local agent who tested it and said it worked properly. I explained the issue and then they decided to replace the unit. Yesterday the new unit arrived and would you believe, it is exactly the same as the previous one!!! So obviously this is a dud product that does NOT do what it is advertised to do.

If you need it to work in Mode 1 (Up/Down arrow) then you may be OK. Otherwise save your money!!!

Don't buy these if you have small ears. I happen to have large ears yet the ear buds still hurt me and fall out while I'm performing, despite having tried out all the different sized tips.

The unit I received is also defective. The left ear bud makes a distorted hissing sound and I had to return them. So I doubt that the quality control is very good.

The Best Midi Controller around (depending on your SAW setup)

Reviewed by on

This review is based on using this controller with the MASCHINE DAW.

This is an awesome controller that does exactly as promised. If working in Maschine you will get seamless and in-deph DAW integration as well as all buttons on Native Instruments products (Mondark, Massive, kontakt, Reaktor, etc) fully mapped and saved with your soft synth.

This takes away all reliance on using a mouse or keyboard for your musical journey and can practically do everything via the keyboard. When using one of the Native Instruments sift synths, this virtually feels like a full-blown synth with all the ease and touch controls that one could need.

Further to this VST instruments and Effects also get mapped (i was amazed at how well it handled this) and translate very well to this keyboard. You will be going on Sonic journeys with this piece of gear in no time at all.

Lastly the keyboard itself is a semi-weighted fatar keyboard , making it extremely expressive and smooth as silk to play.

The only negative is that if you do not sequence in maschine you will be missing out on a lot with this piece of gear. While it still works with other DAWS (presonus one, logic, Cubase, ableton, etc) you still get some daw control and VST integration , however when used in maschine this will shine and become amazing.

I Used this keyboard in conjunction with my maschine mikro and was heavily impressed. The two units compliment, and integrate with, each other perfectly. changing aspects on the mikro changes aspects on the keyboard and vise-versa.

There are many 'surprsies' also in this keyboard that will keep you interested and invested for ages (the fact that the ARP on the keyboard maps notes to midi is probably my favourite. You see the notes mapped in your sequence rather than just the notes which you held on the keyboard. stunning.).

The build quality of the komplete controller is excellent and smacks of quality. It is sturdy, has feet that stick to the table and feels like it will last for ages.

Have fun!

Reviewed by on

Great head even though it's the cheaper variant. Yet the quality is excellent. Sound is fantastic. Provides my drums with a great warm tone with some resonance (obviously some tuning skills are also required). Makes my BK Percussion look cool because it is black and the heads match my drum set colour.

Best guitar ever!

Reviewed by on

After using a V-shaped guitar for many years, and putting up with its impractical shape, I decided to go for a more “old man’s” guitar. And boy oh boy! This guitar is just so brilliant in delivering a great tone, and extremely comfortable to play. I was first quite worried because it’s more of a budget entry guitar, but I’m absolutely blown away by this strat. I play both metal and 70’s style of rock. This guitar does it all with no problems whatsoever. I just love everything about it! I’m extremely happy with my purchase. I feel this is my forever guitar. I’m an instant Fender/Squier fanboy now! This 2019 model is definitely way better than previous models, so I’d recommend it to anyone looking for a great all rounded guitar. Highly recommend this guitar!

What an Incredible guitar!
Compared to a Baby Taylor or Little Martin, the Taka-Mini dominates and wins the spot in my heart.
The Takamine has a rich full tone with surprising projection (considering the smaller body).
The build quality is superb with such an attention to detail!

The Carry bag it comes with is such a bonus (Well padded and with decent straps)

Overall, you cant go wrong! :)
