I got this module to enhance the sound of my kick for extreme metal drumming. I am using toe down double strokes for my double bass (similar to John Longstreth and Francesco Paoli). I am using the module with the Roland RT-30k kick trigger. It took some time reading the manual to adjusting the settings to fit the double stroke technique. Once I dialed in the right settings this thing is awesome! I still get the very rare misfire but I believe this has more to do with my old head and worn out beaters than the module. (I am also using a double pedal btw)
There are two aptly named default trigger settings that suite metal, both have 'Metal' in the name to make it easy, lol. You can easily adjust the dynamics and pitch to alter the sound to your liking.
I love the fact that it comes with a mount for the module that you can attach to a cymbal stand. Way easier than lugging around an entire rack case like the very popular Alesis DM5 unit.
I have not tried the expansion slot yet as I am quite satisfied with the default samples. But I am sure I will try this feature eventually.
The manufacturer documentation was a bit confusing to navigate. Mainly because it is in several different languages. Some of the instructions are not in a very logical order but they are still there. Roland has the manual as a downloadable PDF from their site. I would recommend downloading it on your smartphone for quite reference if you are playing a gig.
Drums for 10 years.
