  • V-Drum downloads/Kit patches

    Hello, does anyone know if Roland have patches for download of "Famous" drummers kit sounds. I was looking at the Ddrum.com web page and it seems that Ddrum owners can download kits sounds from the likes of Denis Chambers and such. Do we have that option. If so how is it done.

    No, not on the Vdrums.

    That's one of the drawbacks from ddrum. That we have to live with famous drummers

      No, we don't have that option, because we Vdrummers are intelligent enough to recreate famous drummer's kits from scratch

        No, we don't have that option because all Vdrummers ARE famous drummers.

          No, not famous yet. Do any of you have hints or tips on getting the V's to sound like your favourite drummers kits. I havent had a lot time with my V's yet, but am planning on having time soon and I would like to get the most of them.

          I dont yet have the expertise that some of you guys have, but would be greatful of any advice.

          Thanks
          Bob

            1) Read the manual
            2) Look at the settings for the default kits to get an understanding of how they achieved various sounds
            3) Experiment, Experiment, Experimint
            4) Systematically go through each feature to see what it does. Take ambience and see what it does on the toms, snare, hats... See what the difference is between hall, room, plate reverb effects and others. See what compression, EQ, and other features are all about.
            5) Get hooked into your PC and download some of the software and kits Vdrummers have made available. See what they did to get their sound. Seems to me there was a John Bonham kit on VkitTrans. Also believe a couple of the TDW-1 kits have imitated a few famous drummers. There was a post on this once. Try the search feature.
            6) Get over you excitement and awe of your equipment and plan out how you are going to learn each feature (or key features), take them logically, sequentially and stick to your plan.
            7) Understand that headphones and amps just about all sound different from each other. If you are going to use your kits on other's equipment, you will need to learn how to tweak your setting to adjust for the equipment variations. It may sound like Bonham on your equipment and crap on others.


            There's lots more you could do to become a so called expert and duplicate the sound of any drummer, famous or not, but most of it involves you taking initiative to learn your systems capabilities. Don't expect others to do it for you.

            That's my $.025.
            Kit Pic 1 Kit Pic 2 Kit Pic 3... And FOR SALE I have: 3 PD-9's, MDS-10 purple rack w/cables/pad and cym mounts. See classified posts for details or PM me.

                Boingo, my hat is off to you. Succinctly stated, well done.
                Bobv, don't be scared to radically change settings - if you can't hear how a particular effect changes the sound of the drums, pump it right up. This way you will at least know what the effect is trying to do, then you can incorporate it subtly.
                Take Boingo's point number 3 to heart (you can always re-initalise the factory settings any time you like).

                Time will make you proficient at tweaking your drums, there is no easy way around it.
                Enjoy yourself
