I'm not quite sure what you want to do actually (call it my morning brain...)
and let's start this by saying I've not taken a midi setup out live, I play in an
entirely acoustic band, but have always owned synths
are you wanting not to take the RD and just opt for a 61 note controller setup, or do
you want something to supplement the RD?
If it's the latter then I agree with
the above - go with what you know. you can pick up X6 fantoms for a reasonable amount.
From experience (mostly my photography experience), new gear needs to be learned inside
out to rule out the possibility of "er... what button" moments.
what you describe, this layer thing worries me.... how much polyphony are you left with?!!
Roland patches, akin to most ROMpler patches consist of (in the case of Roland) up to four
"partials" which gobble polyphony!
Would there not be better time saving
ideas out there allowing max polyphony eg a MIDI footpedal thing for changing patches?
Mind you, does the fantom series have "patch remain" - i can't remember now it's years
since I had one!
