    Default Pads or Arcade Buttons?

    What do you guys think? Now I know that the arcade buttons are amazing and all, but I think I still prefer pads. Not all of them. Specifically the KORG padKONTROL and the MPD series. To me, it feels like they are just as responsive and well I like the fact that on some of the controllers I can have a fixed velocity as well as velocity sensitive- What do you guys think?

    Pads for me, the arcade button clicky sounds gets me on my nerves.

    depends..

    you need velocity and maybe after touch: pads
    you want to smash those cue points: arcade buttons

    Both!! Grab a MIDI fighter and a trigger finger and you have no need to choose
