  • New Member - JrummerJ's DIY e-kit

    Hi guys,

    I thought I would finally take the plunge and join this forum after years of lurking and learning some valuable info. I now actually own some Roland gear (TMC6, FD-8, and CY-5) so I actually feel like part of the group Some of you guys may know me from other forums or under a different name: edrumming.com (username - jrun).

    Anyway, my kit is an old Pearl export with Hart Magnum heads, ddrum triggers, and some DIY cymbals I use a ddrum 4SE module along with the TMC6 to trigger EZdrummer running on my Macbook Pro via an M-Audio FW410 interface. Right now I am mainly using the main EZD kit, but I own the DFH expansion (not my favorite) and I just ordered the Nashville kit, too. I am looking forward to Superior 2.0s release!

    On to the Pics!

    Nice one!

    Hi

    Very nice set up, you got the works there, do you pad the drums out from inside to silence em or let em fly ? does EZ Drummer have PD? positional detection?

      Dave, no currently released software uses PD, but it will probably be utilised soon, maybe the next generation of BFD or Superior3?

        The drums are all filled with some foam that I had laying around. They are about 80% filled and then I have a small amount touching the head to dampen vibrations. They trigger great, but no positional detection. I am not sure how well that works with rim mounted triggers? I have never really felt that I needed PD, but I guess it would be cool to try. Ride is dual zone, hats are dual zone, and snare is dual zone, all toms and crashes single zone.

        Thanks!

          Welcome to the forums!

          You have made yourself a very fine kit there. I am also triggering EZ with a TMC6 and I love the performance. Do the rim mounted triggers allow for quick fills and flams? I have always wanted to experiment with a rim mount to get rid of the dreaded hotspot of a center mounted trigger. I am not really too concerned with positional detection at the moment.

            Thanks! I love having the e-kit......

            Yep they don't miss much of anything. I attribute some of that to the ddrum module which is very easy to set up.

                Thanks! It turned out much better than I had planned, contemplating what to add next....cymbals, some left side pads for percussion....

                    I think that they trigger great, no problems at all. I've had one friend come over and play them and he said that he thought that they triggered as well as his Vdrums, I think he has the TD10 exp module.
