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.
