Thanks for posting! This looks pretty good for what it is. What stands out to me is the 4.3 inch color display.
That's a large display so it can show a lot more that what we normally see on these devices (and color too).

I hope this means the next Roland drum module is going to have the same (or better) display.

Looks like a clone the SMP ..except with the features it was missing and everyone was asking for (years)...too bad the Editor/App requires the Hardware.
It  would have been interesting to be able to check it out.

Good to know, because I think the Alesis Strike MultiPad does have to load between kit switching. I know the Strike module does, so I assume the Strike MultiPad is the same way.

Yes strike milti pad load on kit switch, also sound stop on kit switch, most important is, too much faulty SD cards inside the unit make problem on this device, no internal sound, startup loading, importing...you need to open the unit, unglued the sd card and replace the sd cards with a new one, there was alot of complain on it.
