I have just received this multipad, but from my initial testing, it is great. I am a drummer who seems to spend more time performing in front of a "Big Band" singing, rather than drumming!. To explain, the band that I am with has another drummer. We perform "Big Band" arrangements of popular numbers from Van Morrison, Frank Sinatra, Bobby Darin etc. I felt that I could still add a bit more to the rhythm section. I had thought of buying a set of Conga drums but felt that I didn't won't to be carrying more gear around that necessary. The answer was a KAT KTMP1 Multipad. I can mount it to a simple cymbal stand and use/play it standing as a conga player would. This is where I think that the only downside is.I am not sure that the supplied mounting bracket will survive "life -on-the-road". So I intend to buy the Millenium E-Drum Multi-Clamp. This is an all metal unit which should remove my doubts. To return to the KTMP1, the range of "voices" is great (50) and will give me more variety than a set of Conga drums ever would! I have tested the KTMP1 using both headphones and a PA system, and the sounds are great. Changing between "voices" is easy and the ability to "shape" the voices using: reverb, sensitivity (for each pad), tuning and individual volume (for each pad) is fantastic. This isn't the cheapest multipad on the market. BUT as they say "You pay for quality".

The pad is used by me for rhythm exercises mostly on a DAW with the various plugins contained therein. (I am not a drummer, so I can not apply professional criteria) In the promotionvideo of the producer, the pad acts as a drummer's replacement, which seems to me something exaggerated.
Positive: The processing is without serious defects, material plastic / rubber) The operation is largely self-explanatory. The built-in sounds are ok (of all something, could be more) The connection possibilities are good (Midi + Midi via USB without driver! Line out, headphones, 2 x external controller Hi-Hat and Kick). Negative: The touch sensitivity is a little too small for me (at the hands). There is no storage facility. (At the DAW of course superfluous) In the video, the pad is shown with tripod, Hi-Hat controller and kickpad with foot pedal, all KAT, not in the catalog) I use instead the Tama HS30TP Practice Pad Stand - the other I will try first times with the comparable Millenium parts (if compatible - the better.) Conclusion: Good overall impression, for the hobby only once sufficient. For the price you will get so easily nothing comparable.
