Sounds like a gatling gun, lol. I don't know why people would say that it's cheating, it's music, people, not sports. You don't cheat at music. I'd like to hear Tim Watterson play that rig, that would be awesome.
Whenever I have heard pro drummers on e-kits, they tend to overspeed the transducers and the sound has dropouts. Tim would probably get to a certain bpm, then it would sound like a mess or not keep up at all.
