I have an Alesis Sample Pad Pro...and enjoy messing with it...never did a show with it.  

 

Anyway I saw a drummer using a Roland pad live and messing with the on board delay in really time on some dub music (which I'd like to be doing a little of) and thought...maybe I need to think of up grading.

 

I once got to help an acquantance find his way thru the Roland manual (not easy)...

 

curious what people are using...and why.

 

PS-If I recall the Roland will also let you create a loop from samples ... where as the Alesis only let's you loop a sample.

 

Thanks

The DTX Multi12 will let you loop samples.

 

Here's the basic difference

- the DTX Multi12 is a full DTX700ish drum kit module with some pads stuck on it.

- the SPDsx is a sampler with some pads stuck on it.

 

So it depends on what you want to do.

 

The ultimate, most flexible, offering is a DTX Mutlti12 with a Roland TM-2 MIDI'ed to it.  (This is still cheaper than an SPDsx).
