People rave about this unit, and I now understand why. Yes, there is a learning curve, with quirky button entry, obscure menu items, and a percussionist could be a little spooked playing it for the first time. But the more time you spend programming it, the better an instrument it becomes. It really is the best design for a drum machine (MIDI sequencer, WAV file import, filters/FX, expandable pad inputs) . I gave up my Roland Handsonic, and Alesis pro rack sampler, to spend time with this unit.

When I first received it, there was a major issue with certain pads not triggering when hit. Even after sending it to Yamaha and getting a major circuit board replaced, the issue never truly went away. (I even tried one in store and it did the same thing.) Then I tried recording with it and even though all volume knobs were at max, it was really quiet. So I tried using midi with it and it communicate with midi properly... Overall, I'd recommend putting your money to a better product.

I used it for adding custom loaded samples along with acoustic kit. You can layer samples and create realistic expression. Also used as midi trigger in studio. Great on board sounds too if you don't want to create your own samples. The editor for iPad is a great tool too.
