Out of the box, everything seems to work, but when I strike the pads they don't light up no matter how hard I strike them.

they do trigger sounds correctly, but no lights on the pads whatsoever.

is this a defective unit?

actually pads started working by themselves... I did not do anything different... still not sure if anyone encountered this inconsistent behaviour. or perhaps has an idea of what would not allow the pads to light up.

Hello,

Thanks for the post. Sorry to hear about your troubles. As soon as your connect your controller to your computer via USB, your controller will receive power and if you striked one of your pads, they should illuminate. If you're using a PC, sometimes if you have to wait a couple of minutes of your computer to read the controller. Never a less, if you see it light up, you should be good.
