Notes From the manual:

"The BOSS Pad Controller BP-1 can be connected with the BOSS Sampler/Delay RDS-10 or a drum sound module to play them. Also, the BP-1 can be used as an external pad of the Roland Octapad PAD-8.

The BP-1 features the Sens Knob that controls the output voltage, therefore, can be used with almost all types of devices that have Pad Input Jacks.

Using the optional Pad Holder BPH-2, two sets of the BP-1's can be set up as one, and this can be installed to a tom stand etc.

When using the BP-1 with the DSD-2 (BOSS Compace Series), connect the BP-1 to the Trigger Input of the DSD-2, set the Sens Knob on the BP-1 to its maximum position, and hit the pad rather hard."

Also usable with other BOSS drum pad units e.g. MPD-4.
