      Pad works as advertised and I have had no problems with it at all. Great job for the price and would definitely refer it to other musicians.

      Very loud buzz

        Comments about Alesis Sample Pad 4 Percussion and Sample-Triggering Instrument:

        Just arrived. Working with the unit for about 4 hours. Main Out has a very loud buzz (60 cycle hum sound)!! I am reading about others with the same issue.
        Tried new cables. Tried running into a Direct Box in order to lift ground. Tried adjusting gain settings. Nothing helps. The headphone output has less noise, and it can be used as a workaround. (Although, I don't know the long term risk of this to the unit).
        Note: The volume of the buzz is louder than the samples at a low velocity (when you are playing lightly)
        I don't feel this unit is very usable do to the noisy output.

          Comments about Alesis Sample Pad 4 Percussion and Sample-Triggering Instrument:

          This is a decent sample pad system for less than 200, but i am/was unable to use it due to the buzz in the main outs. You cannot filter this out and using the headphone out was just not an option. It's sad that a company with such a great reputation & general awesome line of industry standard products over the years has a product with such a huge defect.

          Comments about Alesis Sample Pad 4 Percussion and Sample-Triggering Instrument:

          I've had this unit for just under 14 months and it went out at the first gig we tried to use. It's never left the basement until this past weekend. This is a very cheap piece of gear and very hard to program. Figuring out how to save the adjustments is difficult and non-intuitive. This is a toy and should not be considered a professional piece of equipment for working bands. No more Alesis products for me.
