" + Much, some less"

klamit, Audiofanzine
18 December 2012
  • Excerpt: How long have you been using? November 2012 Here is a list of things to know if they may seem trivial to some, I hope they will to others: 1 - Not Octapad is not a sampler / sampler as the SPD-S for example: it is not possible to import your own sound banks (that said, it is still possible to use the ...

" The Swiss Army knife of the battery"

Arthelion, Audiofanzine
28 May 2012
  • Excerpt: I use it for a little over a year. Chosen in store including the sensitivity and touch pads, very comfortable: we have (almost) like playing acoustic. I used: - As kit perceived as an adjunct to the acoustic - As a trigger to initiate sequences on PC - Like mini-kit apartment (with pad and pedal hihat kik) for tra...

" Drum machine to the stick!"

AZL, Audiofanzine
7 January 2012
  • Excerpt: How long have you use it? About 1 year. Especially for the live electro. So I could not say whether the SPD-30 complements a true drumkit ... Finally, I think from a formation with only machines and other electronic instruments signed Roland and Korg. Have you tried many other models before b...

  • Summary: I bought this to replace an ageing Octapad II and am not dissapointed The pads are very responsive , and although i originally wanted it just as a controller to trigger drum sounds in EZ Drummer on my computer, the built-in samples are very good, as are the effects. Editing is very easy due to the large LCD screen. It's worth getting the hi-hat pedal controller for it as it will add to the realism of recorded drum parts.

  • Summary: This product is magical. It gives you all plus more sounds that enable you to experience infinite effects. It's small and compact and takes up little space in my room. The build quality is outstanding and one you would expect from Roland.

"Beaucoup de +, quelques moins "

klamit, Audiofanzine
18 December 2012
  • Excerpt: Depuis combien de temps l'utilisez vous ? Novembre 2012 Voici une liste non exhaustive des choses à savoir, si elles peuvent paraître dénuées d'intérêt pour certains, j'espère qu'elles serviront à d'autres : 1 - Non l'octapad n'est pas un échantillonneur/sampler comme le SPD-S par exemple : il n'est d...

"Boite à rythmes à la baguette !!"

AZL, Audiofanzine
1 July 2012
  • Excerpt: Depuis combien de temps l'utilisez vous ? Environ 1 an. Surtout pour du live electro. Donc je ne pourrais dire si le SPD-30 complète bien une vrai batterie... Enfin, mon avis part sur une formation avec uniquement des machines et autres instruments electroniques signés Roland et Korg. Aviez vou...

"Le couteau suisse de la batterie"

Arthelion, Audiofanzine
28 May 2012
  • Excerpt: Je l'utilise depuis un peu plus d'un an. Choisi en magasin notamment pour la sensibilité et le toucher des pads hyper agréable : on a (presque) l'impression de jouer acoustique. Je l'ai utilisé : - comme kit de percu en appoint à de l'acoustique, - comme trigger pour lancer des séquences sur PC - comme mini-kit d'appa...
