It suits my needs perfectly but if you want to trigger your own samples be aware that you can only load up to 14mb of samples per 'kit' (4 samples) and any single sample must be under 10mb. All samples must be 16/8bit mono. Build quality is ok if a little 'plasticy'. Pads are velocity sensitive and the inbuilt sounds are pretty uninspiring, but I bought it to trigger my own samples any way.
