As a die-hard MIDI guy who likes to edit and customize things, I'm glad to see them go. Good riddance!!
Well, audiodrums can be fun with the right (daw) tools..
But as implemented b y Yamaha they where the opposite of what they tried to archieve
Looping A static recording can never sound like live played drums..
The impleme tation of audio drums on korg is much smarter
Where you load an audio drum, slice it up, and you can play with it..
Audio drums will stick with yamaha for a long time
They just will not make new content for it(or allow users to easilly create content for them)
And this is not the first time yamaha does this, recently with deejay styles but also free play styles, they have not seen new content for quite some time now..
