Roland make the best drum samplers

Previously bought the Roland SPD-S. Upgraded to the SPD-SX. So much more functionality than the previous version. Little things like the USB connectivity. SD ram and larger external supported memory.

Pros

USB interface

SD memory

Loading and setting samples to pads via PC

Live effects on active samples, really easy and good.

Sturdy product.

4 external triggers - I use the DDrum triggers with the kit.

Cons

Setting up the Sample pad as midi controller with Reaper and Abelton Live DAWs can't be done via USB, need a Midi to USB cable.

Conclusion

If you are building a hybrid kit or expanding an electronic kit this is a very powerful tool and worth the money.
