A worthwhile pad

The basics of this unit are good at this price. It's responsive with no crosstalk between pads. The manual, though, is another thing. It's way short of what it should be. The maker claims a user kit functionality. The software for creating user kits and editing may work fine - if it came with instructions. The "Wave Manager" is not at all easy to figure out and I can't find any instructions for it anywhere! Artist needs to get on to them and get a decent manual happening. I did apply the firmware update with no problems so that's good.

Great Pad!
