  • td-12 splitter the same as td-20?

    Will the same splitter that works for td-12 also work for td-20?

    (Like this one: http://cgi.ebay.com/Roland-V-Drum-He...QQcmdZViewItem ?)

        Seems to be contagious, but Michael seems to be taken it to another level (perhaps planet or galaxy even).

            The next step. . .

            Is the splitter for TD-12 and TD-20 the same as for the TD-10? I recently purchased some that work on the 12, but I'm not getting them to work on my 10. Anything I need to do differently to make them work?

            Thanks in advance.

              The modified splitters for TD-12/TD-12 Tom and Aux inputs won't work on a TD-10 as they're designed for dual-piezo inputs; on a TD-10 that's only the snare input.

                Now I'm confused, since I asked some time ago if I needed splitters for my TD-10 instead of using dual-trigger toms. I was told, "For the mesh-head drums, yes, you'll need the "special splitters that the DIYers talk about," often referred to as the "Raper Circuit." "

                In the mean time. . .I've actually gotten it to work, somewhat. I accidentally hit on it by changing the pad assignment to PD-7 (or 9). If the input was set for PD-80 (80R, 100, 120, etc.) it wouldn't split. But, since PD-7 and the like are piezo/switch pads, the splitter worked. . .sometimes. Help me understand this: it worked when I assigned tom 1 as PD-7, put the splitter in tom 1, and plugged two PD-80s into it. BUT, it didn't work when I put a PD-7 and a CY-8 into it. I realize there are electronic differences beween the 80s and the others, but I don't uderstand why that difference makes a difference in the triggering. Obviously, I'm not an electronics guru like many of the members here are.

                On a related note, how bad is it to play PD-80s/100s when they are assigned as PD-7/9 in the module?

                  Well, yes; but that was followed by the suggestion that you "try searching the DIY forum with "raper circuit" for more info."

                  So did you follow the instructions at; Sticky: Building Keith Raper's Circuit (which would work for TD-10 inputs other than the snare)

                  or Sticky: Splitter for Dual Piezo inputs AKA TD-9, TD-12 or TD-20 Aux/Tom splitter Revisited like the cable linked to in the first post of this thread?

                  I don't think you can do any damage; it just won't work very well.

                    Actually, I bought the exact splitters from that eBay auction. Maybe even the one in the picture. (He's a really cool guy, by the way. And they are really well made, if anyone following this wants to order one/some from him.)

                    Anyway, I'll be honest. I'm not a dumb guy, but I guess electronics is just one of those subjects I have a block for. So, some of these posts about the splitter quickly get too technical for me to follow. Also, it seems like just when I think I understand it, someone else posts something saying it should be different.

                    I guess the bottom line is: will the splitters from the original post work on a TD-10 the way they work for a 12 or 20?

                      No, sorry. TD-9, 12 or 20 only because their Aux and Tom inputs are dual purpose (i.e. head and rim for rubber OR mesh), but on older modules (TD-3/6/8/10) that only applies to the snare input.
