Dave,The Roland TD-3SW kit truly excels in the training department as well. It has an advance rhythm coach feature (based on Roland's Rhythm Coach products - RMP3, RMP-5) built in that includes the following exercises:*Rhythmic Notes - cycles up through rhythmic subdivisons*Time Check - two modes, easy and hard*Quiet Count - # of bars w/click, # bars quiet*Speed Check - Tempo increases 5 BPM if played correctly for 8 bars*Gradual Up/Down - tempo increases/decreases by 1 BPM every beat, every 2 beats, etc.*Step Up/Down - Same as above, only every 8 bars*Count In - OFF The click sound stops playing after the count in is finished, ON The click continues after the count inHere is a link where you can take a closer look at this kit: http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/TD3SW/
That's exactly right Dave. They only include on this kit as it is the "entry level" model. I cringe to say entry level when this kit has so many pro features and sounds, but that's the reason.
Dave, I can assure you that the pads that need to be dual trigger on this kit are. Here is the breakdown:• 1 x PDX-8 New snare mesh pad with expanded 10-inchrim size to improve the playability of rim shots.• 3 x PD-8 dual-trigger rubber pads for playing rim shots on toms and bow/edge sounds on hi-hat• 1 x CY-5 for Hi-Hat with 12-inch playing zone• 2 x CY-8 Dual Trigger Cymbal Pad• 1 x KD-8 Kick Trigger with vertical design for natural feel and reduced tremble; double bass pedal compatible• 1 x FD-8 Hi-Hat Controller allows for smooth hi-hat sounds from open to closed
Yes, that's correct and it's expandable with more pads since it has 9 trigger inputs. Feel free to call me at any time to discuss this in more detail.
