    Doing searches for the best drum pad controller for BFD2 looks like it may be the Korg padKontrol. I actually want to use this with UBS direct.

    Here is some piece of info for you:
    I never thought of this but for those of you having latency issues with any USB controller, having a good power supply might be a really good thing to have plugged in, instead. Relying on your PC to power a usb controller that needs quick action and heavy polyphony, can have issues with timing out and tracking from the lack of power.

    That being said, I'm quite sold on the Korg padKontrol now. I have always been an MPC users and thought the MPD may be my choice but the Korg padKontrol may be a better fit?

    Anyone familiar with BFD2 and drum pad controllers, I would really appreciate reading which works best for 2010.

    I use the Akai LPD-8. The feel is much better than the Korg in my opinion. It feels perfect whan I use BFD2

    I use a Roland TD-4k V-Drum setup.
    Had an Alesis ControlPad before - but it fell to pieces.

    To be honest i dont see much difference in using a finger-pad type thing as opposed to a keyboard. You quickly pick-up learn which keys trigger which drum.
