How is a hybrid kit just an interface? You still have to play the drums, and hit any pads like a drum?Why do you want to sound exactly like someone else? Why buy a great kit to change the sound?
If you turn the kit into an interface it is no longer an instrument that requires a skilled musician. Anyone can hit an interface to trigger that exact sound, that requires little technique.
Taken a little out of context from the bus tapes but it applies -

I don't think anyone is talking about using a hybrid for jazz. But for rock, alt, pop, metal, etc... It can allow more creativity.
Geddy Lee played bass pedals when he needed to play keyboard at the same time as bass. Nobody bashed that.
