    Looking into getting a drum machine to play around with.

    I'm looking for one with:
    4+ velocity sensitive pads
    Quantisation
    MIDI outputs

    Any advice/recommendations?

    I've done a search, but most of what I've found concerns purely programmed drum machines, whereas I'm more interested in one which I can thwack with sticks...

    Ta,
    Dave

    Fairly low, more after something to muck around with for practice than something with quality sounds.

    Maybe £100 (or $180) maximum or so...
