I use it for a week, bought secondhand a hundred euros
Who knows the MIDI programming is really simple: a switch on the rear panel allows you to put in edit mode, the MIDI channel can then select the MIDI Channel (with arrows), the MIDI note can then select the MIDI note number corresponding to the pad that was hit ... What a breeze.
Sensitivity level, it really answers the quarter turn, and hit is pretty sweet. Indeed, it is noisy in his room and he must raise the volume to hear the sounds of advantage that the "knock" on the pad (or play through headphones) it sucks a bit but maybe not really avoidable.
I use a mpc 1000 for the moment, and I must say that it completely changes the life (feeling different components = different).
on the other hand I have not yet managed to make it "expressive," I must myself looking more intensely.

Value terrible price, it smells good old reliable stuff of yesteryear price crisis
I'd rather have 3 other megalomania but has its limits.
