Long audio files from an SD card can also be assigned to these pads.

What is your opinion of this product?
Vocoder only allows use of 1/4 plug. Some sounds are a bit cheap... yet there are some sounds that sound really good. Two knobs control just about all effects and adjustments. You have to select the adjustments you want by pushing a button then the two knobs work in that category so on the fly adjustments are a bit tricky. Getting into deep settings are a bit cryptic and take some time to master. The synth sounds and adjustments are ok... Good enough to play out with. Favorites has 8 banks of 16 programs each.... Plenty... One of the best features is that the USB not only is used for editing programs on your computer but it also sends sound so you can use your favorite recording program without having to use a USB interface. All in all.... Not a bad little unit.. If you are looking to do deep synth with adjustments on the fly while you play I'd suggest you get a flat out synth.... but this can handle both keyboard/workstation and synth features good enough to gig with.

Feeling a bit Kross
What is your opinion of this product?
I got to admit this unit has a few things that others in this price range don't have. USB recording to a computer, 16 timbre layers. 16 track sequencer with lots of features..... BUT.... some of the sounds are kinda cheap and sw1 amd sw2 function wheels are set up above the keyboard instead of having a joystick just to the left of the keyboard.... all in all, not a bad keyboard. Def gig friendly.. 8 banks of favorites with 16 slots in each bank... yea, I may be picking on this little keyboard but I think for the money the sound samples should have been a little better.
