Review Status: In process Comments: Great quality sounds and nice graphic interface. Perfect for playing your acoustic instrument with these backing tracks. Create your own tracks and loops in a very fun graphical environment.

Pros: Great support and aggressive updates. Good built in drum, and string patches.

Cons: Current version has no style editor - although this is in development. Also there is limited instruments or sound patches. Again, this is to change in the up coming versions.
