Decent controller for fruity loops, but that is all it is. I still feel like it's easier and faster to use fl software without this unit. If you are into actually touching knobs, button and pads you will probably enjoy it. This unit doesnt provide anything that cant be done using the mouse and a regular keyboard along with the software. Personally, I feel like it creates a middle man between the user and software. If it came loaded with new sound banks, vsts, or other effects (like the NI maschine) i would give it a higher rating. Also, the usb cable, which is provided, is extremely short, about 3' maybe a little longer. Had to use a longer cable to reach my tower, lucky I had one.
