  • Adding more cymbals?

    So i have the TD-4sx and all the wires join to be one plug that goes in the module. Roland gave you only ONE extra cord for either another tom or another cymbal. i chose instantly another cymbal so i could have 2 crashes and then use a ride. but i would like to advance the TD-4 with another one or two cymbals. is their anyway you can do this? or does Roland make it like this so you have to go drop $1200 on a td-12 just for more cymbals and toms?


    Thanks for any feed back on this,

    lookup midi splitter.

    Basicly you lose your 2 zone crash, but gain 2 one zone cymbals.

        you could get some extra cymbals by going to a td9 - though it has just one input more than the td4, it has dual zone toms, and those can be split to make single zone toms and single zone cymbals, if you desire, through the purchase, or diying, of a special splitter.

        of course roland has features on the more expensive module that are lacking at the low end - otherwise they would never sell any of the high end products! makes good business sense for them...

          it's not a midi splitter you need, midi doesnt enter into it....it is a Raper circuit you should use the search engine to find.

            I don't think midi splitter is what you need. here is a thread that may have what you are looking for. Also the link in post #7 has the site where you can buy thes if you don't want to build them. The guy that makes these should be able to answer whether or not they can be used with the TD-4.

              no, these are not what he needs, the crash is not dual piezo... he needs a Raper circuit though the contact might be able to sell those as well....

                Ahhh....I wasn't sure. I just knew that a midi splitter was not the solution. Keith sells his circut and can be contacted at this site.

                      Thats kinda what i am doing right now. I cant get get sensitivity out of my snare in SD so i got my td3 hooked up to my mixer, and i turn all the volumes down on the td3 except the snare so i can use that. I kinda like it cause it give my snare its own track on my mixer
