ah well, i'll just have to wait then. Myspace sucks? yeah, the teenage sector/web, but as far as networking musician-wise, it's great. and looking at pictures of your friends trying to look cool is great.

The MPD had GREAT pads though. I hope these are as good.

Of course, one COULD just save the money for an inexpensive set of MIDI drumpads...
