Just curious. I could see the advantage if you in a multi band situation and have to set up, play and tear down in a hurry. I figure most modern recordings have a trigger acoustic blend (if they are not using drum machines etc).
Same here! Never triggered/layered but I do play either a full Roland V-drums kit or with my acoustic, use a SPD-30 Octapad for the sfx claps etc.I've been using electronics onstage since 1985, and started playing samples (sfx, claps, etc) in 1987, but have never triggered or had a layered drum sound live. Although, I would be the ideal candidate for needing different sounds on each song, I've just never gone there. I leave patch changes to the bass, guitar & keys.
