It's like a glorified MPD, but i don't mind. Beats the nanopad, (second one went tits up a while ago, good thing it was from the warranty) but i wish it had a quick scene button or switch. Rather than even bothering w/ another nano, I just saved, waited, and got one of these. Had to put it together, but it was simple. I'm going to try and put it to use in Torq, since I won't be able to use my turntables until Dec.
