Pros

- Pads: can use piezo/switch pads (pd-7, 8, 9) as dual-zone, and 2-zone cymbals.
- Larger number of inputs (Trigger Input (dual) x 10).
- a 3-zone ride can be used and requires two piezo/switch inputs.
- positional sensing on the snare.
- large number of instruments. Number of sounds (Drum Instruments=1,024, Backing Instruments=262).
- COSM modelling of the sounds.
- brush support.
- MIDI IN and OUT.

Cons

- no choke on cymbals in the percussion set.
- requires update 1.10 for cymbals support.
- can only be updated via MIDI cable.
