Default Re: Alesis Sample Pad

Haven't taken mine out, but it's easy to use, compact, and the best deal going for triggering samples. You can load 14mb of mono samples at 16/44.1, so that can mean 100 or more sounds, depending on length and sample rate. You can economize by creating 16/22.050 samples (or lower) for speech and lo-fi sounds.

Be aware that you have 8 presets with 5 sounds each (4 pads + 1 trigger/pedal) so that's up to 40 sounds without having to re-assign sounds to pads. But for $200, you can't beat it!
