A well documented problem is the octave shift in its midi numbering. Another point to note is that it won’t pass midi signals through the midi port without external power, which it does not include. The thing I like about this controller compared to other pad controllers on the market is the sensitivity.
With the addition of an optional footswitch you can add real kick drum parts, or close an open hi-hat. Pads are very nice, great feel.

Don’t know if I’m suppose to be able to? Rated 3 out of 5 by John Bonnell from Mostly great, but hard to set up For the money, it’s hard to beat.

The footpedal input is assignable! I’ve had an m-audio trigger finger for several years and have been satisfied with it but not blown away. Each of the 16 pads can be individually assigned a note number and MIDI channel allowing you to control a single drum kit, or map it to control different devices in your setup at the same time. Sometimes it just doesn’t seem to want to do what it’s supposed to.
