Great module with sound layering
Yamaha's latest offering with VST and sound layer make this a solid buy for a hybrid or electronic set. The sound quality is great with numerous parameters for altering/adjusting each voice. Programming two voices per pad allows a much bigger sound and makes a stereo instrument field sound huge. I have been a Roland guy since 1999 and love Roland's dual bank sounds on their multipads, but having a sound module gives much more flexibility and higher quality samples. For the price, this is by far the best buy in the industry right now. Before I bought this , I read a review where one drummer said he liked this more than his Roland TD15, which is priced around $1000. Be prepared to use the manual because it is an advanced piece of equipment that can do A LOT of things.
