It's pretty engaging, but i find I have to be in a particular mindset for it.

When I first got it, I'll admit I was a bit frustrated because I went in knowing it had an amazing amount of parameters to mess with but that same feature set also ended up making me frustrated. I would find myself recording something, then if I wanted to make any changes it was such an ordeal and it would slow the writing process down.

Once I switched my mindset to using it and recording with it as though it were a guitar, vocal or some other instrument, as a live take, it felt great to me. Instead of going into automation like I would normally with a soft synth, treating it like a one take at a time type of tool feels amazing.
