Positional Sensing.... Is it necessary?
« on: June 05, 2018, 11:38:42 AM »
Hi all, newbie here, but long time drummer...
Played acoustic, electric and hybrid kits for 40ish years including Mapex, Traps, Roland (kits and SPD pads), Alesis DMPro, and a ddrum4 for quite a while.
Gave up gigging a few years back, and have been mostly programming (using VSTs like Addictive drums) recently.
Hoping to get an electric kit for home use / enjoyment / stress relief soon, so re-appraising myself of the current market.

Having used VSTs recently, I've become used to having 'main' and 'edge' samples of drums, and use them quite extensively.
I'm trying to decide if 'positional sensing' is a huge benefit to electric drums, or just another marketing gimmick

Any thoughts / opinions? Either from a 2box perspective, or other manufacturers?
