Re: Roland Octapad versus SPD-SX: What to do?
Thanks for the great info! You guys are golden! I was leaning to the SPD-SX and I think that's the way I'll go. I'm assuming the reliability of the Roland is up to par.
As for speakers, for my practice room I'll run the pads through my Klipsch speaker system for now but I'm thinking Yamaha DXR10 or DXR12's for monitor, or the QSC K10 or K12. I've heard the K10's with subs and they blew me away, and I've been told the Yamaha's are better yet.
Any gigs we play out will have to have a full out FOH system just to cover the insane amount of keys in the material (and monitors to match). Keys guy has a Hammond XK3c two manual, Moog, Korg Karma, another Korg, Nord Lead and some midi controllers going into some gear I don't recognize. If I can get him in a good mood I'll hit him up for some samples...
Thanks again, gentlemen. I'll be checking back and giving a report once I make the move on this...
