Everything and then some! 128 strike positions and 128 velocity is amazing. I set it up on a 7 sensor tabla setting and was blown away. I think i jammed on it for 5 hours when i first got mine. There are so many effects that can strike creativity and inspiration. I am planning on buying Battery 3 so that i can easily record into Cubase. If you are a avid recorder with a DAW i'd recommend you buy battery 3. The mandala seems more of a stand-alone drum without the software from Native Instruments. It can be recorded into Logic, Pro-tools, and Cubase if you download a free program named, "Sound Flower." It is all explained in the owners manual upon arrival. It is very user friendly. I had delay, flange, and reverb as well as LFO and strike velocities controlling all different kinds of parameters within minutes! It sounds crazy, but it's quite straightforward. Best yet, you can upload your own samples from songs and your own recordings. It also comes with a pair of drumsticks! Thanks Synesthesia Corp, awesome pad :) Definitely recommend it to any drummer that wants to play any world percussion at the click of a button! This pad is as intuitive as you want. You can be as simple as it gets, or very technical and control everything!

2nd version much better!!

By AKdave

from Alaska

I bought this drum from the company directly about 6 months before it came out on the normal sites, I run the brain part through a Sony Vaio and the pad through a Simmons 200watt monitor. The great thing about this drum is the fact that you can add your own sounds to it, the only thing I have a problem with is there is no way to loop, other than that great drum, I love it!!!
