MIDI controller and USB
Connections MIDI IN and OUT, USB, expression pedal
16 velocity-sensitive pads and the velocity of light
two buttons and two knobs assignable to any MIDI parameter

I use it for two years, I tried afterwards to m-audio trigger finger. I tried the same type with the pads 25 of the axiom.

It is very easy to use, the pads have a good light sensitivity, when they do not remain switched on ... The sensitive pad x / y is a good contribution from other control surfaces.

What bothers me most is that all pads are switched to the right after you press it, sometimes for ten seconds, despite the dismantling and cleaning, it restricts a lot the game ..

I do not have that choice would do on occasion, may be new.
The trigger finger (as well as the pads of the axiom) looks much more robust but less fun side pads bright and has no pad x / y. It is no longer I think.

NB: only used USB "MIDI Learn" so no opinion on the advanced MIDI programming (seen from afar, it looks to be fairly complete at this level, more configurable than the trigger finger for example).
