KONG - changeable skins for the PADs
OK, so I can change the background of the Kong, which is nice for some visual reasons,
BUT: why the heck can't I change the 16 Pads, respectively their appearance???

Saying this, there is a lot more than "visual" reasons to this, so here's my top five of why changing the pad appearances would be useful, too:

1. the numbers 1 - 16 in the upper left corner of each pad are very small. How nice it would be, if one could write in plain letters and actually NAME the pads...

2. I often work with people who can't read (no, they're not alphabetians, but mentaly impaired), so working with pictures is a good idea. It'd be a great ease, if I could underlay the pads with certain customizable pics...

3. Colours! Same reason as 1 above, but even more simple - different instruments / noises / patterns equal different colours...

4. OK - this one is going to be "visual" - a picture of your band across the Pads! Wouldn't it be fresh?

5. see 1 - 4 again :-D

Hope someone likes the idea of a fully to custom Kong...

Nice idea. Change of pad graphics (or colours at least) would be pretty handy when working with samples phrases, drum groups etc.

Cool idea, but might be complicated since the pads are animated? That is in terms of "skins." However, I think it would be cool to have something integrated like the colors of Maschine MkII. It might not be able to be custom though...
