Best drum pads : MPC style.
That couldn't be further from the truth.
Out of all the options for pads available out there like Maschine, padKontrol, triggerfinger, axiom...etc. (with the exception of Novation Remote line which were laughably rock hard and Korg microKontrol which were buttons, not pads), Akai pads (MPC/MPD/MPK/LPDs..etc) are by far the least sensitive and the least responsive pads, period.
In terms of responsiveness and sensitivity, it goes like this from my experience:
Maschine > padKONTROL > Triggerfinger > MPC/MPD
All Akai pads have a gap between the pads and the sensors which make them prone to missed triggering or double triggering due to the lack of sensitivity. I consider this to be an inherently flawed design but I also realize that some people have gotten used to how different Akai pads are such as being able to just rest your finger on the pad and just pushing down instead of tapping to trigger. Anyway, this is why Akai pads are only good for percussive triggering while they suck at expressively playing sustained notes, for example. This is also why people who own Akai pad devices end up having to install pad fix modification kits with a risk of rendering it useless if you don't do it right: viewtopic.php?p=1294516#p1294516
From what I can tell though, Push's pads were not designed (only built) by Akai so that shouldn't be a concern for Push.
