I have a TD12 and I am thinking about trying to add it to my acoustic set up. I would like to be able to hit a pad and have it play a chord, like a D or E or A etc. Without getting a keyboard module is this something I can do?
Do you mean a guitar-like sounding chord? Or just like a "AAAAAHHHH" sound in one of those pitches?
I have a TD-12 too and without running upstairs to check, try first going through the built-in Patterns, specifically the "Tap" group.. those are designed to be single-hit sounds... some of them might be what you're looking for. From there you might also check out some of the other Pattern groups, I think there's some guitar sounds in there.
