In the same vein, thoughts on the Roland SPDS?
I found it used at Guitar Center for $299. $100 more than the SamplePad, but looks a bit more robust to me (nine pads instead of four, more memory, etc). Any thoughts on this, anyone use one?
The only downside I see is that it appears that I need to sample sounds directly to the unit - so instead of putting .wav files on a memory card, I need to plug my phone, or computer, or whatever, into the unit and record the sound. An extra step, but not that much of a burden.
