    Default Picked up a Roland BT-1

    Seems that it'll be great to stop/start clicks and loops. It's so low-profile and simple. Can't wait to try it out.

    Anyone have any experience with it?

    I used to have a couple of them. They are perfect for your purpose, but to play instead of a drum, not so much fun.

    Not my intent at all. I plan on using it to start and stop clicks (which I'm playing to more just lately) and trigger sound effects.

    Like it said, the BT-1 is perfect for what you want to do.

    I agree, for starting and stopping loops the BT-1 should work perfectly. I do use one as a drum pad and it works but is certainly lacking in sensitivity. I mostly use it for one shots or electronic snare/clap/snap sounds where sensitivity isn't as important. I've beat the crap out of mine for a couple of years and they've all held up really well.

    I've heard they're tough little ******s. The sensitivity isn't an issue. I'll use it for click stuff and e-snare sounds for the dance/disco tunes we do.

    It will work great for your purpose and they are very durable.

    Quick dumb question here. I'm looking for the small attachment piece used to connect a BT-1 with a stand. I can't find them anywhere (Craigs List, eBay, etc.) and Roland has not been helpful at all. Anyone have ANY thoughts on where I might be able to find/buy one, or as an alternate, how else to attach a BT-1 to a stand without that small piece????? Any help would be appreciated!!!

    Thx,
    Ira

    Its very uselful, for one shot sample or start/stop loop. Give time controlling the crosstalk, in the beginning I had some problem about crosstalk with the hardware and other pads but configuring the module I got it.
