Great concept, not quite ready yet
vargaradu, 01.12.2018
Let's start with the pros.

The first one for me is the Equator software: it has some very good realistic+futuristic sounds that you can get lost in, especially because with the 5D sound manipulation. The rest of the software is also good, with the Dashboard I was able to customize the midi messages, Noise is also not bad (you CAN install it on Android, just search for the beta apk) - but I prefer to use it without the Lightpad (because of the bluetooth latency).
The build quality is also good, from my first impression at least. The size I really like, it's perfect for the fingers, perfect for travelling.

Now the cons.

First and foremost, I intended to use it for finger drumming, but I quickly saw the limitations. My biggest problem is that you need to apply quite a bit of pressure to get it to respond, just tapping it lightly will not produce effects most of the times. If you try really hard you could get it to respond to light taps, but it's very unreliable. Then, after you hit with a bit of pressure, it also reaches the max velocity quite easily, so the velocity response curve is pretty bad (and not editable in the Dashboard software). In the end, you are quite forced to play every note at max velocity, otherwise you will most likely have missed notes. After having some nerve damage because of playing bass and computer work, I'm really not keen to invest in an instrument that's not healthy for my fingers and wrist. It was a total relief for my fingers to play on my Maschine again.

Then I said ok, the Equator is really cool so I could use it for creating some pads and effects. The response of the rubber is much more made for this actually, you can sink into it and have an intuitive sound response. The problem again is the minimum pressure it needs to engage - here the problem wouldn't be the pain, but it's very easy when you have a 3 note chord, that one of the fingers accidentally releases your note, this is especially bad after you slid your notes to open a filter, and you retrigger a note somewhere you didn't intend to. And if you play this pad chord with one had and with the other you turn for other knobs & instruments like me, you will have a hard time focusing on that finger pressure. For me it would have been much more intuitive that it triggers on even the lightest touch, because it does look & act as a touchscreen in the end.
Then the very obvious limitation that you can't have as much sliding control with the notes on the side.
So for chords & melodies type of thing, I think it's better to get the Seaboard block instead.

So all in all, the potential of this device is huge. But it's just not ready yet, I will return mine.
Please Roli optimise this for drum playing and I'll buy a truck full of them. Thanks.
