This device does have a learning curve, although, fun can be had right out of the box. We set it up in about 20 minutes and had it pumping out some House/Trance hybrids in no time. We had a small rave with the kids grabbing the headphone and controls while the others watched, staring not dancing. We loved the lights, we loved playing with the wrist bands while I waited for my turn... That's where it went a little south. While I could make lots of interesting effects, I realized I have a long ways to go before dub stepping a little 70's gold. But I got DJing for Dummies, I've watched videos and it is coming along.
This is obviously more toy than profession here, but I am happy with the feature set. I would like there to be better jogs, and I can tell that it is limited in many ways, but holy crap it was exactly what I was hoping for. Inexpensive, feature rich enough for my needs, and most importantly fun. I will put up any resulting mix here when it comes together.
Rating it five stars based on the fun and affordable entry into DJing.
Simple plug and play
8 cool LED wristbands to give to your cool friends ;)
No dedicated mode buttons (I go into detail about this below.)
No visible way to stop the controller from flashing ever so brightly after 5 minutes of not touching it (because I'm too lazy to unplug the dang thing while I'm trying to watch YouTube...)
As for the free Djuced 40 software:
No option to change the text size. (So good luck if you have poor eyesight.)
Kinda weird and kinda unusable, lengthy, provided samples.
While this controller is great for beginners, it comes with some hiccups.
What I found to be a hindrance to any performance is that there isn't a different button for each mode. This means that in order to switch between the 4 modes, loop, FX, sample, and cue, you have to hold down the mode button and press 1 of the 4 corresponding pads.
Until 20 minutes ago I thought that the headphone buttons were useless and only toggled the sound on and off for the headphones. But to my surprise, and accidental luck, I found out that when it is toggled "on" on deck B and the crossfader is on deck A, deck A will play through the speakers and deck B will play through the headphones. Also, when the headphone button is "on," the volume fader and crossfader don't affect the volume of the headphones.
As for the features I wish it had:
A toggle slip button and a record button, which are in the software itself but are 10 times more useful on the controller itself.
A USB port to plug in a midi controller (With my current setup 5-8 feet from my actual computer, this would mean having 1 less 10 foot cable to trip over.)
4 more pads total, 2 on each side - I feel like only having 4 pads for each side limits just how well one can utilize the controller.
In summary - this controller is packed with features and for this price point it's probably the best one you can get.
It comes with its own software, which by itself I imagine costing a minimum of $50. It's also pretty easy to get the hang of.
Would I recommend this to a friend?
Probably not any of my friends, specifically, but if I knew a guy that wanted to break into the scene, I would tell him that this is a good place to start.
Also on the djuced website under products, if you click on djuced 40 it will show you all the features of the program. (Also, near the bottom of the page you will see the links to the free tutorials on how to use the instinct P8 specifically.)
