Stiff pads?? Don't fret!

Some things are good stiff. Drum pads aren't one of those things. Useful link below for those of you who want to increase the sensitivity of your pad controllers, specifically the Akai MPD/MPK series but I imagine it may work with other products too.

A bit of tape on the bottom of each pad "nipple" and you're good to go. Just make sure not to put too much or you'll get stuck notes! Did this to my MPD16 some time ago and it activates on light touch afterwards.

Happy drummin! :wink:
