  • spd20

    i was wondering if it was worth buying altough i already have a td8

    Well in MHO I think it is worth having, but that all depends on what you are going to do with it. There are other alternatives like a DrumKat or SPD-11 or even SPD-8. Keep an eye on E-Bay because SPD-20's pop up on there once in awhile. I have an SPD-20, TD-10, TD-8 and HPD-15 and love every piece. But again I tend to have more money than brains

      well my set up is made out of the td8 module with acoustic cymbals... what i am looking for is a larger variety of more industrial sounds and bongo type sounds to add on to what the td8 has to offer.

        Ah custom sounds, a sampler, here's some very affordable models of late. Peavey SP, technicly not a sampler but you can load up to 32 meg of sounds into it, $100-300. Akai S2000 $200-350, a sampler ,you can put up 32 meg plus 8meg flash rom board, Akai 2800 $250-500, 16 meg, Ensonique ASR10 $350-650, 16 meg plus sequencer, there are some Kurzweil K2000r's floating around for $600, sampler playback with sampling option. There are alot of very good 16 bit samplers for not alot of cash, it's becomming very popular.
        Drumkat Turbo 4.5, Emulator X3, Superior 2.1, Roland Fantom XR, DTXtreme III, SPD-20 etc.......

          E-mu samplers are very good to use. Very good bottom-end effect to the sounds.

              I've got an SPD20 and I like it alot. But I can't say I can tell you to buy it for the awesome industrial sounds. There's alot of stuff in there that I will never use. Unless I start doing soundtracks for cartoons. But I do use it. I also like to think that I could use it for a backup module if my TD10 went down.
              CaptKidd... I just ordered a HPD15. Any advice you care to share?

                There already are many sounds (even percussion and effect sounds) inside the td-8. So: only for extra pads the spd-20 would be usefull. Just my 2 cts

                  I have a V-custom and an SPD-20 and there are many, many fabulous world perc. samples in the SPD that you wont find in the TD-8/10, and the sound quality is just lush to boot. Also, with my old KD-5, FD-7 and a couple of PD-7's the SPD makes a great wee portable e-kit; I use it thus with a small acoustic kit for one band, and I find this palette pleasingly broad.
                  There are some great prices for the SPD s/h in USA, and you'll get plenny of bang for your buck.

                    If you want optimum sound selection and creation, the sampler will be the last stop in expanding the drum modules to a full-blown drum station. As far as explaining the sampler and how to use it, you might want to search that on your own. There are many areas to discuss about the sampler advantage and that will take some time.
