    Performed on my HPD-20 last sunday morn.

    I have patches that don't require pedals, so I decided to compete with the guitar players and singers and I STOOD UP.. Haha, take that... :-)

    I always use it as a full kit, the 10 pads get me kick, snare, two toms, rim, and some cymbal sounds, closed hat is the center one, hit it with the thumb.
    I have a few patches where I switch out some of the cymbal sounds, on one I have a tambourine and a shaker egg. And I have two different snares I like. The hardest part was to get decent cymbal swells, but I did. I have patches where I match the sounds of certain recordings too, you won't get that with a real kit. It gets me pretty far for such a small convenient device.

    But the BL would prefer I use real drums, I disagree, it amps the stage volume up terribly. We have a great guest drummer who comes in once or twice a year on a real kit, and I am glad we don't do that all the time, even though his playing is fantastic.

    I don't really consider the HPD-20 to have high-quality sounds though, I dream of using it as a MIDI controller to a mimic pro, then the sounds would be perfect. My drumming would still be mediocre but that's another story.. :-)

        Looks like I need to copy out the patches by hand and convert to text, the save to usb function is the whole thing, not a per patch thing.

        Give me a few days to put that together.

        It's only three kits that are my workhorses, and they share a lot of parameters between them, so I'll upload the layout, and each sound I use, and you can mix and match.

            It's definitely a thing, especially in heavy music. I did a show in Richmond and later I was in the bathroom at a urinal and I hear one guy say to another guy who played in the opening band, "Hey, awesome job playing those REAL drums".
