Let's not get me started with M-Audio and their audio cards.

I'd be happy with it for twice what they go for.

If you use effects and you don't own this pedal in favor of more expensive ones, you've made a terrible decision.

This thing is amazing.

Re: The worst hardware you tried/owned

The Arturia MiniLab: I REALLY wanted to love this..still like it even, it's just so fecking buggy that I stopped using it altogether. I didn't have it two weeks when it started started sending phantom midi signals onto every channel in a mix.

Basically, if you tried to use it to control on VST, then the others would be effected too. I returned it and the replacement was just the same. It seems the problem is well-known and not limited to just me..something to do with the connection I think.
The software that came with it was / is really good though..all analog synth models that sound really amazing. They alone were worth paying what I did for the Minilab.

Tbh, from time to time, I still find myself tempted to jump in and get the latest model in the hope they've sorted out the issues I ran into, but I don't know for sure if they did..so I think I'll resist the urge for now.

Yep - I was super disappointed with the Minilab. Seemed like such a great little controller, especially for a small, iPad set up. But the thing just doesn't work.

This thing was a bitch to program. Actually most Digitech products are like this.

^^ I still have mine. I find it rather straightforward to program. It has some really great compression and the tube overdrive is suuuper smooth. I love it.

Re: The worst hardware you tried/owned

Really? Wow man. I just had such a hard time trying to get decent guitar tones out of it. I did like the delays and reverbs though. The EQ gave me the most shit iirc.

I love the Minilab! I've had mine for about 5-6 months now and I haven't noticed any bugs with it. Maybe I got the newer one, or something?

The only thing that concerns me a little is the weakening top row of knobs that I use to make all of my improv noise on. It seems like the more I use them, the looser they feel.

I tried the software fix for that and it never did anything. I could have been doing it wrong though, because I was a stupid 19yo at the time.

Yeah..you might be lucky and have grabbed a newer version, but the ones I got weren't. Also, for the record, their support on this sucks, too. I..and others..made posts about these faults on their forum, only to have the posts "vanish" within minutes of posting or go totally unanswered.

Basically, it was enough in all to make me keep clear of all things Arturia in fufutre..even though I still do like the MiniLab.
