Unbelievably powerful multipad
Brandon P., 14.11.2013
Let me start by saying that, yes, the menu system is awful. A 2-line display is not enough to reveal the power that this machine has.

Now that that's over with -- this is by far the most powerful drum multi-pad available. This is the first multi-pad with features comparable to a full e-kit module. Because Yamaha gives you full control over the MIDI layer, you have capabilities not even conceivable on other multi-pads. You can hook up a trigger-to-midi controller and play additional sounds per kit (i.e., sounds that aren't assigned directly to pads). You can hook up a MIDI keyboard and play an entirely different sound set (on a different MIDI channel -- for example, you can have a drum set assigned to the pads on channel 10, then plug in a keyboard and play a grand piano sound simultaneously on channel 1).

It has more pads, more inputs (including a 3-zone snare input), full MIDI capability, hi-hat functionality, and can playback your own samples. 64MB isn't a lot, but honestly, for drum sounds, that's a LOT of time. If you DO need more sounds, because you have access to the MIDI layer, you can control an external sampler directly from these pads (including program changes / control changes).

To be short -- this is a RIDICULOUSLY powerful machine, orders of magnitude more powerful than any other multi-pad available. If you can look past the rough interface and limited on-board sample space, I _highly_ recommend this!

Soft pads and sensitivity difficult to adjust
m3guitar, 28.05.2019
I am using the product purely for midi triggering, so I cannot comment on the built-in sounds, let alone all the other features related to stand-alone operation.

What I can say is that the options for adjusting the dynamic response are very limited. You can only chose between presets (trigger wide, -normal, -narrow, hands, fingers). There are no velocity curves. The 'trigger wide' setting is good for soft playing but you have to hit VERY hard to get the maximum response. The 'hands' setting is too sensitive for sticks since a moderately hard hit will saturate the velocity.

EDIT: There is a way to edit the sensitivity after all. My mistake, didn't find it in the manual first time round.

You should also be aware that the pads are very soft so when you play them with sticks you get a weak bounce.
