This program is very easy to use if you have some experience with midi programming and using vst's. It's not a replacement for pro studio electronic music whatever software, it's more suitable for composing or making demos. And a fair share of the instruments could easily pass as real playing, the most obvious being synth, drums and piano. But the bass and guitar sounds are really good too, they just don't do techniques like slapping, hammering and bending(there is sadly no electric guitar instrument other than a rythm guitar, but connecting an acoustic guitar to overdrive works pretty well).
Most programs have me sitting for hours trying to mix so it sounds good, which sucks since I'm horrible at mixing. But this program demands very little expertise on that front, allowing me to just make music instead of fiddling around with equalizers and reverb for hours.
Easy to use, surprisingly good instruments, alot of bang for the buck. You can pretty much make any kind of music you can imagine with this software, from baroque to 80's rock to whatever the kids are listening to nowadays. Haven't found any vocal instruments though, maybe that's a premium version sort of thing. Doesn't matter anyway, voices can be simulated using other instruments.
