I just bought this device for a sound design project. It's a really cool idea but far from being a usable device yet - here's my experience so far... basically it's very hard to get it to sound like a legit record scratch or time it to the beat so that it sounds musical like what you'd do if you were DJing. The presets don't sound like anything. My biggest problem was not knowing how to trigger the "scratching" manually. The only way I could figure it out was by putting it on auto, which basically randomly selects from the 8 presets, or by selecting a preset manually which would then trigger the "scratch" to play through once. This is not Midi-able so you can't trigger with a simple midi command, and there's no button to activate the scratch in the device itself. The tape stop is cool and works well, but also sounds very linear as opposed to logarithmic. Oh the BIGGEST problem I had was when I deleted the device and reloaded it I could not get it to pass audio until I restarted Ableton... THAT was very annoying, however when I did it again and then started just mashing around in the plugin something I did got it to pass audio again so I have no idea what that was about. All in all really would love this as a sound designing effect but I think it needs a solid round of beta testing so people can give some feedback. I kinda wish I hadn't spend the $12 bucks but hopefully the next version will be robust and I'd still love to use it.
