So according to this at 4:50ish and in conclusion around 8:00; the kits / samples in both modules is the same.

I'll be diplomatic and say that Justin's not great with details ;)

Large numbers of presets to me says "we used up a ton of the sample memory available on useless crap you don't care about, and just expanded your search time for the decent sounds that still basically boils down to the Oak Kit, Jazz snare, and Rock kick.

In Roland’s case I would say this is true.

I have found Yamaha’s libraries (both on the Xtreme III/900, and Multi-12) actually so useful that I didn’t even had to use a lot of sounds the producers or artists had send me on projects, as these were already on them.

I can't get over the port on the new KP 128, I can see showing up live somewhere and a soundman sticking a mic in there :) These all look great though, happy to see Yamaha stepping up. For what I use electronics, mostly for practice, I'm happy with my old kit.

The one thing I found most useful about the new ProX module is the ease of use , compared to the older flagship 950 module, which was super powerful but super complex too. You can change the snare for example, or the effects on it while playing and it does not affect any other piece of the set ! That is cool. And the live set list function is super useful for the gigging drummer.
This is Sean Browne of Yamaha and myself checking the new set out.

Ahh Sean. I haven’t seen him in a long time.

Send him my (Wes) regards next time you see him.

At least they couldve made it a USB port so you can 'mic' it there.
