  • Awesome thread!

    Got to say I'm loving reading some of the articles in this section!!

    While I've not built a super duper MIDI box or E-Drum kit from scratch...

    I have built a MAME arcade machine where you can use the buttons to play
    drums... It's nothing amazing but it sure gets a few smiles after a few beers!

      Nope. But I do have a video

      http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=RxU8R4Lu50U

      This is BEFORE I added the drum function so it's showcasing the MAME aspect mostly.

      All it basically does is you tap the control button and you get (basic) drums sounds.

      The Joysticks are mapped to Ride and Crash (so you whack them in any direction and get the sound)
      The upper buttons on Player 1 are Lo,Mid,Hi Toms.
      Lower left is Bass Drums (3 sounds)
      Player 2 has three HiHat sounds on the upper
      and 3 snare sounds on the lower.
      Player 1 start = Cowbell
      Player 2 start = Another Crash

      All can be re-mapped for any combination..

      I'll try and post another Video soon of it in action.

      Like I said... It's a "Toy" at best...

        Hey, that's interesting. A few years ago I also fooled around with MAME (and MSX-emulators). What drum program (rom) are you using?

          It's not a ROM, it's actually a Windows program called WinPDrums and it
          basically lets you set drum sounds to key presses. As all MAME is key based
          you just tell it your joystick / button inputs and away you go..

          It sounds like crap, but it's strangely satisfying when you hit a joystick
          and get a ride or a crash sound!
