I've never used the Trigger or MD24, but I will say that I LOVE my PadKontrol! The pads feel perfect, and it looks cool as hell too!

Thanks for the tip. I overlooked that when I was setting it up, so I configured it to be less sensitive and it feels a lot better to play now.

Of the people who got the MPD with jumping encoders, have you exchanged them? Are the new ones working correctly?

I have a Trigger Finger.

And it is 100% true! It is not very sensitive.
Actually, I use it with FULL VELOCITY on, at all the times.

And if i want later, i edit the velocity on the DAW it self. (like for drums, snares, bass drums and so on).

But i understand the pad kontrol is a little more money.

Well, i would say, if you are not concerned (as me). and you are willing to record everithing at full velocity, and later edit.

It will work fine. If not, look for other options
