Pad Controls

Each 16 pad drum kit is divided into 4 drum groups with separate macro controls for the pitch and decay of each group. Special effect macros include controls for reverb, chorus, phaser, ping pong delays and an adjustable randomiser to add a human feel to the beat. Also included is the Togeo Studios special pattern changer midi effect. The pattern changer macro allows for 16 variations of any single midi clip you trigger giving a wide variety of interesting new drum beats and instant fills.
