Default electronic drum brains question

I'm wondering if there's a drum brain out there that allows you to create samples (or even import them) for playback but also function as a normal drum brain.

I have a roland td-12 which I use with my electronic kit for practicing in my apartment. It works great and has a lot of great sounds on it. But I've yet to find a way to import my own sounds into that brain. I think I'm stuck with what Roland has programed.

I have an spd-s which I use for sampling sounds and playing back at live shows. It doesn't really have great response though, the pads are pretty small, and all in one place.

I'm hoping to find something that allows me to sample (or import my own sounds) and playback sounds like the spd's but also has all of the output jacks for all the electonic drums so I can place them throughout my acoustic kit...as well as use the brain for my electronic set while I practice at home.

Thanks for any suggestions.
JCB

Is there no such device that can accomplish what I'm looking for?
Thanks,

I could be wrong, but the brain on the Yamaha dtxtream can sample I think.

I would try searching an E-drummer website: http://www.drumjunction.com/electronic_drum.html From what I've seen (Johnny Rabb demo's), the SPD-S is always used in conjunction with another Roland e-kit. Yamaha has both Tony Verderosa and Akira Jimbo as their main e-kit drum godz.

thanks for your suggestions. I will have to look into the yamaha brains.
I thought it would make a lot of sense to have both those features in one unit instead of using two different set ups to accomplish a full electronic set up and sampling capabilities.
Thanks again,
jcb

Yamaha DTXtreme III http://www.zzounds.com/item--YAMDTX3SP has sampling capabilities, but I've never played with one. I play a hybrid kit. And the SPD-S is a part of my rig. But I use acoustic snare, real cymbals, a 1985 Tama Techstar (6 channel analog synth), and a loop station. When I saw Mark Zonder (Fates Warning), he used LP spikes mixed between his drums, for triggers. Much smaller than any drum pad.
