    VERY Disappointed!
    Product Rating
    What is your opinion of this product?
    I have a Roland sampler and is it great. I needed this for very small basic PA applications, opening music, national anthem and some sound effects. It says it allows for 30mb of samples at one time...I thought per pad, but total, EVEN with the 32GB SD card! I tried to log 2 samples each 5mb and it told me "sample too large." Then to top it off, you can't even turn off the velocity of the pads or shut the sound off of a sample by hitting the pad again. You have to wait until the sample fully plays and ends, if you trigger something else both will play...it was maddening! If I could give this minus 10 stars, I would.
