The pads in the PA series are incredible as I think many here would agree to. Am I allowed to say this?

Of course you are, buddy...don't worry about the cheerleaders, Franny and Don...just be careful of their little pom poms...do you know they even have matching Roland T-shirts?

Multipads are so cool....they should be on every arranger.

Perhaps the next G-series will catch up and implement them.

Yeah i wonder when Roland are going to CATCH UP and include Multipads in their arranger keyboards...

its funny how people trash things they dont have. but if the Roland had them i'm sure the cheer leaders rais their pom poms about how amazing they are.

Quoted by Fran Carango: "As an example..you are playing a style..you want to change the drum kit...and lower the level of the snare"

this would have to be the most irrelevant feature i have ever heard of. I am sure if we really all want to, we could dig so deep into our arrangers and pick the useless features that the opposition dont have ... but we dont cos its a waste of time...

It's not Donny or Fran I'm worried about. It's someone with more pom poms and bs....

Ian, I actually do have a matching Roland shirt..it was a gift, I received about 8 years ago, but I dislike wearing shirts with any logos or print on them...so the shirt is still in the wrapper..

Wow, I must disagree. Turn off some tracks and use the pads selectively and you can get very close to real. Cymbal stays for 4 measures followed by a comp on all four by a guitar –then add a soft bass drum on four equals more drive – then a kick snare to lift it all up.

I LOVE THE PADS, I’m glad I got the out, aaaaah.

John C,

I can understand your shame, Fran...that's okay.

I'm proud to wear my Yamaha shirt...who wouldn't be?

They make great products.

You can give yours to Donny...his always wear from the inside out...comes from sticking out his chest so often...

But I did hear you both have matching chicken hats with Roland logos on them...that must be cute...they go with the Roland pom poms I suppose?

Ian
