  • More V-drums than trigger inputs?

    Hi all,

    after lurking around this excellent discussion forum for a while (and learning a lot from many of your posts), I have one question:

    Some pictures of other people's V-Drum kits seem to have more instruments (drums/cymbals) connected than there are trigger inputs on a TD-10. How do they do it? Split cables? Extra TD-10?

    Thanks,
    Tim

    Greetings Tim and welcome to the madness . To answer your question about that you see more pads then inputs is that yes you would add an extra brain, whether that be a second TD-10, or in my case I added a TD-8 to go with my TD-10. Also I have a SPD-20 which has pad inputs in the back. Some people also have gone with different brand brains as an addition. Anyway, hope this helps.

      Tim,

      You can also use a trigger to MIDI converter like the Roland PM16 or the KAT MIDIKiti. This allows almost endless inputs to be used on the sam brain. Check out my original post on this topic here: http://www.vdrums.com/discussion/For...ML/000261.html

        I use an Alesis D4 for my extra inputs (I put all my Visu-lite cymbals into it) and midi that up to the TD-10. I don't use any actual sounds from the D4. I think they can be picked up for pretty cheap.

          , plenty of , and , , triggered acoustics, , and a plethora of PA blah blah freakin blah...I mean does anyone care about the specifics of pedals, speakers, processors, hardware or anything that I'm using?? :confused: Hmmm, maybe this is an appropriate place to mention that I tried out a new cymbal stand the other day...

              Steveo and Jgel are up to mischief. The cyber equivalent of starting a fire to watch it burn. Hee. Hee. Hee.
