Alesis Sample Pad
by Tom Newton from Woodstock, NYOverall I'm quite happy with the sample pad. I like the internal sounds.

The only problem I encountered with it was loading my own samples (which was the reason I got it) the sample pad does not accept Wav files made in pro tools. After a couple of frustrating hours, I figured out you need a file conversion program such as Stretch (for Mac, free download). I converted my (pro tools ) Wavs into Wavs again and it worked fine. Looking online I see a number of people have had this problem. close [-]

Not what I would call acceptable performance for a product that has four pads and a trigger. close [-]
