It’s great to have for DJing and not having too much things around your table. Got size to travel around with as well as when making beats on the go.

Just what I needed!

Product Review

Great product and exactly what I needed! I'm a hobbyist and needed pads for drums and some extra knobs for vsti/vst control, this fits both bills. A great little unit for a good price.

Review: Ben Spremulli from Bethel, CT Submitted: 9/27/2010

Product Rating4 out of 5 stars.


Definately worth the money.

This is a really solid product. It doesnt look like it would break too easily. The pads dont stick and the knobs dont. stick.

Awesome backlit pads, backlit buttons, full control, and it has 4 different program variations and a CC button. Plus, its fully portable.

Super easy to use. Its a pretty basic pad control. The pads have a great feel. Very good with controling virtually any DAW you run with it.

Definately. Great buy.

This thing looks sick!
