First, I want say that I love the idea of the Instrument 1, and with some tweaks, it could be a great asset for learning and performing.
That said, THE most frustrating thing about this Instrument is being locked out of the first four presets. I like to play in my bed or the couch when I’m feeling lazy, but every time I do, the useless auto flip setting swaps the strings, stopping me from playing just so I can fix the issue. The most frustrating part is that the de facto manufacturer response is “save a right-handed guitar preset to the user slot”…WHY?! Why would I waste a slot to have two identical presets, aside from the handedness??? Who’s trying to show off being ambidextrous so much that they just have to have the stock presets keep this obnoxious feature? More to the point, what someone is performing and wants to play it upside-down, like the flourishes you can do with a real guitar?
It makes no sense to lock customers out of editing the Instrument they paid for, and the unwillingness to allow edits for a simple thing relegates this thing to being a toy.
A hardware synth of the same price lets you customize all 128+ patches to your taste, but this only lets you mess with 4 of the 8 possible presets for no discernible reason.
