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!

Specific peace for specific applications
AniJam, 20.12.2019
I was a bit disappointed at the beginning, it is very complicated to set it up and maneuver the menu. I think that with an IPad and the dedicated application works much better and easier.
Now i am a bit more fluent in maneuvering it and setting it as I want, but for me it is not that practical.
Now given the features in it, it has some really cool features and effects, but at the end it is only a MIDI controller, so if you are looking to do some live looping, sampling and applying effects live then this is definitely not your option.
The build quality in general is good except the volume knob and the screen

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.

All in One Multi Purpose Devise, the Best!!!
Umar Jalal, 05.02.2019
Just bought in January 2019, reason to buy this Multi Pad was, Tabla, Dhool, Dholak , Indian and Asian Sound, still learning its functions, the best features are that you can play it with the Sticks, hand and Finger, it is multi purpose devise, with 12 pad and expansion pad options also. Many people saying that its display is very small, yes that is but it become some thing else if you attach your Ipad with it for sound configuration. With such price there is no another better option right away available.
