Here is a great new product from Roland that I hope I get my hands on soon to review – the Roland SPD-SX Sampling Percussion Pad. Here is the spec:-

Unique sampling-pad concept — the only instrument of its kind in the world, 2 GB internal memory, enabling approximately 360 minutes of sampling (mono) without requiring external memory, Nine velocity-sensitive rubber pads, two external dual-trigger inputs, Easy capturing and assignment of audio data through Multi-Pad Sampling Three units of multi-effects onboard, with two real-time control knobs and four dedicated effect buttons, Individual Pad Dynamics indicators show pad status and audio-level activity during performance, Expanded USB functionality (USB Mass Storage, USB MIDI/AUDIO, USB Memory), Wave Manager software included for easily importing, assigning, and organizing samples and Large backlit LCD.
