  • Tap tempo?

    Is the TD12 the only vdrum brain that allows a pad to be configured with the 'tap tempo' function (to set the tempo of sequence playback by tapping a pad)? (I've been reading all the various TD manuals online, and it seems that the TD8 and other 'lower numbered' models don't appear to have this. I'm guessing the flagship TD30 model probably does as well, but I am looking for the 'cheapest' solution that meets my needs!)
    I'm aware of the 'tap playback' option available on some other models (playing each consecutive note of a sequence on each drum hit), which might be useful to me in some instances. However, my main requirement is to be able to set the playback tempo by stirking a pad in time with the band I'm playing with.
    Buying a TD12 module just for this function seems excessive, but I'm struggling to find an alternative!
    Please can you also comfirm that it is possible to route the 'instrument' tracks from the internal sequencer out via midi? And is the sequencer limited to 4 instrument tracks? (Does anyone know if each 'instrument' track is limited to a single midi channel? Could I output a multi-timbral sequence on multiple channels from my PC sequencer into the TD and store this on a single sequencer channel?)
    I'd be grateful for any thoughts / ideas / comments / suggestions anyone can offer....
    Thanks in advance,
    Paul

      from roland support. hope this helps The TD-12 is [was] the most economical V-Drums module that has this feature. The TD-20 and TD-30 do as well, but as you mentioned, they won't be the cheapest solution.
      There aren't many alternatives for this unfortunately.

      Yes, the instrument tracks can send MIDI note data out of the MIDI output if desired.
      The sequencer actually has six parts if you include the Drum and Percussion parts. Here's a list of the parts:
      Drum Kit part
      Percussion
      Melody
      Bass
      Backing 1
      Backing 2
