There are two ways to do this, by using different sounds or by using 
layers for one sound, but this will result in something that isn't as 
good as a real instrument would be. But e.g. the European factory ROM's 
Harp sound for the first DX7 could be controlled by the sustain pedal. 
It doesn't cause sustain but worked as a damper. So a solution isn't to 
deal with missing note off events, but to have very complex envelops 
that can be effected by CC.

Hahaha, no, such kind of percussion does sound good for the demos, just 
for the demo rhythm and when doing your own song, it doesn't work any 
more. But I know a drummer having modern Roland equipment, for this 
equipment there are some possibilities, that might enable a "nice tabla 

I'll send your request Bcc to him.
