Since their release in 2003, the SPD series sampling pads have become one of the most widely used electronic instruments for drummers. Being able to record and playback any sound with the hit of a pad or stomp of a foot-switch allows musicians to expand their creative possibilities enormously.

In this blog, we’ll explore the typical day-to-day uses and functions of the SPD-SX sampling pad in detail.​
Unlock the secrets, learn the tips and tricks with the Complete Guide to the SPD-SX Sample Pad

we agree Phil's playing is brilliant phenixreturns and yes he played it very differently live and expanded on the fills considerably. This is but one example of how a simple idea can be made to work so well musically. You can assign as many toms as you like on the kit in this patch we can have 8 as each of the toms can have separate sounds on head and rim. Thanks for watching
