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.
You make a good point dio, I am really sick and tired and tired and sick of people saying that people using triggers or e-kits are cheating. Music is about writing good material that sounds good not about how each individual player obtains the sound. The quad bass to some of you is like the double bass to some older players. They will say that double bass is cheating, but really all it's doing is opening up more opportunity just like the quad bass.
