Summary: I made some nice beats over and over with traxxpad, and fast too. It's really perplexing how they could have just added a couple more features and made the menus so you don't have to continuously go back and forth when you want to load new sounds etc. It seems this tool is full of these sorts of little bugs that would be easy to fix yet cripple the program so much.
Summary: Yes, its a toy but a fun one. I thought the controls were easy to jump into and just starting playing, but if you scratch the surface there is a lot to obsess over and tweak. No, its not Pro Tools but limitations are the stuff of true inspiration. When you get bored with the built-in patches upload your own and you can fart around endlessly... kinda dated DJ culture interface but almost comical at this point.
Summary: I love this thing and no I'm not hating or anything. The traxx pad is great but if your looking for something that allows you to go all out and make something heave in detail and what not. Then don't get this I love music and all but when I get an idea for a beat, tone, song the traxxpad always lets me down. I love eastern music and underground and this contains everything a western or experienced mainstream lover would want.
Fun toy for curious non-musicians, crippling flaws prevent real application

Summary: Traxxpad is great in concept, and *so close* in execution that it's all the more frustrating to watch it fall short at every turn. It's a lovely program and all, with some decent content, but the problem remains: it's not a game per se, and won't offer the lasting fun of a good game, but it cuts too many corners to serve any actual purpose for the musicians/DJs it targets.
Not bad, but nothing my laptop cant do on free software...

Summary: When i caught news of traxxpad, i was kind of excited because i am really into music and the ability to mix on the road or in flight sounded pretty sweet. Traxxpad gives you basically what you get from free software that you get when you purchase a new computer. This is not a must have by any means, but if are all about music like i am, it is fun to play around with.
