Eh, I like the Tenori-On a lot, I feel like it's more of a real instrument  & that you're actually composing/creating when you use it, whereas with the other thing, it seems like you're just manipulating sampled instruments, and although I don't think that using samples as a PART of your music is bad, I don't think it should be the ENTIRETY of it. (Although I could be wrong about my assessment of it, I only checked it out for a minute). Also, someone here is probably going to yell at me & tell me that it's perfectly fine to make music using only samples, & that it's what you do with them which makes them unique and makes them "yours", (to which I would respond, "touche', point well taken, your superior intelligence is matched only by your amazing sense of creative righteousness"). See? I already had the argument with myself, so now we don't have to... ;D
