Trigger Finger Pro or Maschine MK1

Hello everyone,

I recently started searching for a Pad controller for Cubase, so I get a faster workflow. I can choose between this two options:

- New M-Audio Trigger Finger Pro for 148€


- Used Maschine MK1 with software/expansions for 190-200€

Which one is the better choice? I plan to use the pad for mainly designing some beats, and then keeping on the work with Cubase. It should not be too difficult to desing the beats each time (don't mind spending time learning how to use the pad properly).

Machines pads are lovely, plus you get all the software and samples it comes with, so I vote Maschine.

Maschine is an excellent pad machine, it's has lots of adjustability on its interface too

And you get the great benefits of its sequencer, extras bla bla

Not a lot to lose if you get one second hand in decent nick

Given the choice, I'd also go with Maschine.

Maschine has a very good reputation and is of good quality.

I heard Machine pads are very good. I know Korg padKntrol pads are great. They may be the same type of pad. Trigger finger original version pads were not nearly as sensitive.

From a finger drumming performance perspective get whichever has the most sensitive pads.
