Re: Pearl mallet station
the malletstation is capable of playing any electronic sound you want. The malletstation is just a midi controller. What your main concern needs to be is what software you are going to be using with it. I use Mainstage with mine which means I can have the students play whatever electronic sound is available. If the sound is not made in mainstage, you can create it in Logic, import existing sounds, importing audio samples/songs, etc.
The malletstation is designed to work with Mac & Windows.
If you want the different sounds, you will have to program everything in Mainstage. If you have never used a program like it, Logic, or Kontakt; it can have a very steep learning curve. I have our front ensemble arranger create the mainstage file for me and then I tweak it from there. You will want to check with your arranger that they will do that for you (so will, some won't).
