Does anyone have experience with different drum pads? I am struggling to make a decisions. I already have a td-27kv set so really want something that can augment that plus can be taken places easily.
Roland Octapad - looks pretty cool. 2x4 rows means one fewer pad but might fit in a backpack. But doesn’t do sampling? Might be best bet for a hi hat controller?
Allesis Strike Multipad - “newest” model. 32gb storage. Good features. Inexpensive (relatively)
Roland SPD - samples only. I don’t think it supports hi hat controller. Gets great reviews and seems to be on a lot of “professionals” kits
Nord Drum 3p - Seems to be loved by synth community for sound generation. But only has 6 pads and I can’t tell if they are good pads or not. Could double duty in my EDM station? Doesn’t play samples.
Any thoughts here would be greatly appreciated.
