Finally a hi-hat control input! Have no use for colored lights or effects although those features will appeal to some. Nice upgrade to the industry standard.
Lot's of features users of the old SPD-SX have been requesting for years.
Number one - the desktop app is awesome.
This is my exact situation. I used the original SPD-SX but switched to the TM6 Pro both for its easy-to-use song mode (my original band doesn't have a keyboard player and those sounds come from backing tracks with full click track from the DAW) and it's responsive triggered sounds on top of acoustic drums via the RT-30HR and RT-30K triggers. However, I still have situations where having 9 pads in the tidy space of the SPD-SX would be useful. This is why I ordered the SPD-SX Pro. Anxious to check this out.The video with Adam is perfect. The device is perfect.
And I just bought the TM6-Pro.
That one goes to the Market place now.
Did Basil performed the app upgrade?
Also, Midi in/out via din & usb, two ft control inputs, and line-in are very neat too compared to the TM.
Tbh Yamaha was in the game of real recorded drum sounds long before Alesis and Roland, and at a point even working with people/companies like John Emrich, Toontrack and Fxpension for their libraries.We took the Toontrack approach to Roland - which is to mean, building sound libraries with professional drummers, in recognised world class studios, with proper recording engineers and record producers.
The first time it really happened was the TM-6 pro - which also included sounds from Michael Schack and Kaz Rodriguez, also busy working professionals. A lot of those sounds are also in the SPD-SX Pro library.
I have yet to see Alesis or Yamaha give their sounds provenance.
