Thanks for the reply!Depends on your needs and wants and what issue you have with the DM10. Why "upgrade"?
The 500 was replaced by the 502 and I'd choose that over the 500 - it's not much more. (or go 700, or 900 or etc). Note - you'd have to get a Yammy hat controller. The Alesis pads should be OK.
....I feel I didn’t choose the DM10; I feel it was just part of the pads/setup and I had to kind of live with it. I am just thinking that maybe I could get something better thst was also easier to use(in the 5O2’s case, the iPhone app might make diving into menus easier?)
I’m chiefly into REALISM when it comes to Drum Voices; not overly concerned with amount of inputs and don’t have Tons of Money to spend so am looking at what’s on the used market, these days, that may be contain upgrade…
