US $1295 list, and it's MUCH more machine than a Wavedrum. All of the pads 
DO send MIDI (as well as the ribbons and DBeam) but there's a whole sound 
engine in the machine which is based on Roland's Virtual Drum modeling 

The only drawback that I can think of without having had dedicated time to 
play with one is that it has just two audio outs (plus a headphone jack).

But, internally the level and pan position of each sound is individually 
definable so it may not be THAT big of a deal. I'm not one to process drum 
sounds individually anyway...
