And just to whet appetites more, I was jamming last night after a week off and I swear an hour went by in a heartbeat, with me dancing in my chair for most of it. It is just plain fun. But when ready to record, the sound is so punchy and tight, really balancing options plus limits to get stuff done. In short, Roland really did a great job with this unit. And to repeat myself ad nauseum - this plus and MD is all the drumz you should ever need.
