This is the worst piece of equipment I've ever purchased. I returned it the next day because it is a piece of junk. Seriously, the sounds are nothing to write home about. Also, you have to have a 200 IQ to decipher the instruction manual, and since my IQ falls short of this, the instruction manuals were completely worthless. In addition, the buttons that control the parameters are poorly made and as soon as I started using it, they would stick - get stuck. The mbd1 also looks like a piece of junk, it is an ugly unit. I decided to try it originally because of its relatively low cost, $200 US. However, I returned it for an Alesis DM5. The only good thing about this drum module was that it had audio inputs so that you can save 2 channels on your mixer if your using a bunch of modules. Don't waste your time with this thing, in my opinion!

Comments About the Sounds:
The sounds are nothing impressive.
