There is also a lot of things that are not so good (specially for the full price).
Mainly the positive things are that there is many good sounds that gets modulated by using the X-Y pad. As it can be set to scale and tempo it is nice to record into a DAW for example and come up with things that can be hard to come up with in other ways.
Also there is the possibility to import your own loops.
It is fun to play with but can probably become boring fast after some days/hours as the sounds are a little bit limited and the sequencer is just for five looped instruments/parts that can not be arranged more than turning them on and off. So to use it for longer arrangements it needs help like said before.
The sounds are very EDM oriented and there is not easy to find oddness and weirdness to spill out of it. It would be excellent to have the interface of Kaosillator for some more glitchy/weird sounds and rhythms...
Anyway I do not regret getting it as it has already led me to add some nice details in some things recorded.
