Made my first sequence, It dose'nt sound like much, but I've really gotta hit those pads, even at full level. Is this common? The manual dose'nt seem to have a section on adjusting pad sensitivity.

Fat pads from mpcstuff.com are a great solution for they were engineered correctly and the smallest taps are registered fine. Cheaper solution would be just to cop their corking pads. Dirt poor solution would be to cut some double sided tape and fit them under the stock pads. Plenty threads on this but thought I get you started.
