Postby sureno » Tue Mar 10, 2009 8:45 pm

So received GURU today want to get a dedicated pad controller, my question is which pad controller intergrates the best with GURU, im thinking the MPD32?

I have the Korg Pad Kontrol and that's really cool but you really need farmpad (OSX)(which I can't get to work) to get the most out of it

I had the 2500, that's why I'm leaning to the mpd32

How about the cheaper MPD24 ? If you only want it for banging on 16 pads from what i gather it has less options than the MPD32 which usually translates to 'easier to use'

MPD24 is the model used in fxpansion's online tutorial videos.

no note repeat is the only differance and it looks heavier then the 24 which is a plus in my book but going to look up the stats now

edit

mpd24 = 2.18kg
mpd32 = 5.8kg

Well I'll just say I'm done with the PadKontrol; I'm on my second one now, and it's starting to get flakey as well. While I love the feel of the pads, otherwise it's just not very useful control-wise. I think the MPD32 looks much better in theory, except that I've seen lots of people having troubles with it.

No just the PK; the pads start to go after a while, becoming either hyper-sensitive or losing sensitivity...or both.

Oh I meant that also. It seems to have driver issues, doesn't retain settings, note repeat not working correctly, etc... This is just what I've seen on forums, so I'm not speaking from personal experience here (like I am with the PK), so YMMV.
