HP Slate 7 is a 7-inch Android 4 Tablet PC with good sound

Controls and Connectors

Same as all the recent Android devices, the tablet PC is not equipped with any physical buttons. It is difficult to attribute the buttons to touch-sensitive ones as well. It is just that the system interface bottom is designed to have them. Quite logically then that one is not able to see the buttons if the screen is turned off. Moreover, in some cases, when the application takes the whole screen place, the buttons may get hidden. It is exactly what happened when the Tablet PC was turned on for the first time. Directly after the start-up the device suggested to get connected to Wi-Fi and the buttons got hidden. As there appeared to be no proper access point the downloading process was unsuccessful there was no possibility to skip that step initializing the Tablet PC.

The only hardware object on the back side is the camera lens as well. To our mind, it is located too close to the devices edge, and is going to get dirty rather quickly. There are also big chances of covering the lens with a hand when filming.

I used Drumagog some before Trigger was aabliavle, and I can tell you that Trigger is far superior (this was Drumagog 4, maybe 5 is better). The problem with 4, which may be better now, was that it wasn't phase accurate, which is pretty crucial. This was particularly a problem with kick drums because any out of phase samples would cancel out tons of low end. The only way to really use it was to print the audio and manually go through EVERY hit to make sure the phase was tight. As you can probably imagine, this was a nightmare, especially if there was a lot of intricate kick work, or God forbid, long passages of double kick. In my experience, Trigger is tight and phase accurate, so it can save literally hours of work.
