Re: Roland SPD-SX Sampling vs. Octapad SPD-30 Phrasing, etc.
The SPD SX is an expensive but awesome tool. I use mine to play short backing tracks (synth, horns,piano, guitar......whatever) live.
Simply record the piece, convert to a WAV file and load it onto the SPD.
I don't use any of the drum sounds so I have no clueabout them. Al I know is that it was exactly what I was looking for and there are only a couple things they could have done better.
