Just before Under Pressure for sure. Watch the Roger-cam on the second disc. Those are effects for the cymbals.

Edit: If you watch closely you can see that he hits the octapad with his drumstick.

I think it was also used to reinforce the sound of the drums on some songs, sampled sounds from the records to help the bass and toms for certain tracks.

In Under Pressure he hits them. You gotta look carefully on the Roger Cam though.


Well here's my counter-offer... do I have to kill you? What if I were just to kick the ever loving shit out of you?

The Octapad created the cowbell sound that you hear in UP in The Magic Tour. Cheers!!!
