Many owners have praised the electronic sounds that are not only included but creatable. They describe it as being a very "musical" device.
Players who need a sample based multipad will need to look elsewhere as this is a synth based drum pad, not for loading samples. Also, some players felt limited by the single external input for additional pads.
This for the music producers and beatmakers who want a percussion-style synthesizer to not only craft unique sounds, but play them too.
