whyd you pick a foreign maschine review lol?
i only use Maschine right now and never tried the Renaissance...but from what I read you might as well get the Maschine for a fraction of the cost since they do more or less the same thing. The Maschine caught on much more than the Renaissance as well...I hardly ever hear of someone using one and im not sure you'll find anybody here that's used both
anyways, I love the Maschine, pads feel perfect and the software is extremely easy to use. I cant objectively speak on the Renaissance but I'd just check a bunch of youtube reviews to see what features would work best for your style
