You don't have to hit as hard and the pads work all the way to the corners. And they light up when you hit them! ;-)

Now I just want that BPM app from MOTU to go with it, looks like a killer app for use with MPD/padKontrol/Trigger Finger!

I have a MPD16 and it's the same, complete junk. All I use it for is to quickly tap in a beat when I don't want to go to my V-drums/handsonic and it's really only good for electronic stuff with little to no dynamics.
