He still has to wield his sticks and feet to the same standard as any other drummer. It not like he is pushing a button and a sequencer is making the notes.

well there I have to disagree. Pads that spit out a sample when struck are not analogous to say an electric guitar, which still has a vibrating string and frets at its core.
