What I like most is the expression and transcription realistic touch (velocity, Positional Sensing etc.).
If I had to blame something (it must be: p), it would be:
- The heating time of the screen, unresponsive after ignition (especially if the ambient temperature is low). Past few minutes is restored (even if you see it anyway).
- For the price, Roland could still be included in the expansion card (integrated into the TD-20X) the Positional Sensing and Interval Control on the toms the devil (the MIDI protocol allows whatever the pad). Here is pure laziness (less than model behavior via COSM).
The quality / price is obviously lower in Roland, especially on the higher end, but the quality is higher, then it must have the means for sure.
But yes, I would do without hesitation that choice with the same finances, this module is impressive setting, fidelity in touch (the modules to sample great but hello expressiveness next ...). For smaller budgets, I highly recommend the TD-12, which is great too.
