First, make sure you have the latest firmware on the DCP and the latest software on the computer. It has been changing weekly, so I won't specify any numbers since they get outdated quickly. I just started looking at it, so I currently am a bit confused by it all.
- Cymbal Presets
- Reverb Presets
- Kit Presets
You can load presets from the DCP or a File. You can edit these presets, save them, or send them to DCP. I believe you can send individual cymbals as well as entire sets. The Kit presets allow you to mix and match Zildjian settings or your own custom settings for each of the 20 presets in all 5 inputs.
In theory, when you make changes to a preset on a particular input, the changes are made LIVE, in that you can here the effects immediately. However, I have not been able to hear this happen - seems like at the moment this LIVE feature is not working, or I do not understand it. Without this feature, it is pretty much impossible to guess on the settings. If anyone knows how to do this, let us know!
Also, I imagine that if someone goes through a lot of trouble and gets a nice sounding preset, they can share it here. Can we attach small files to this forum?
So fellow users, feel free to comment on the cymbals, the DCP, and the editing software here. Thanks!
