  • Vdrum Brains is sending what?

    I am looking for some info about what midi
    messages the vdrum brains are sending.

    What is the messages for the hihat controller?

    Pads, cymbals , chokes ... the works!

    Reason Im asking is because I play DDrums.
    (havent got the manual for a td-X, is it online?)

    Im doing some research for my VSTi project.

    Check it out!

      Many thanx!

      My handicap on this issue is that I dont
      have access to zone pads at this point.

      I will add choke features as soon as possible.

      Just saying that i would put a Beta version out in a week has got me into "hardcore mode"
      when it comes to programming.

      3 days ago the Enhancer menu was empty.
      Now I made some basic effects + layout!

      It probably will take a week extra but I
      assure you that it will be worth it!
      (not that you got anything to compare with )

        Another question!

        Can you assign the center and edge on a pad
        to any midi note of your choice?

        DDrum4 has got these notes fixed. (1,2,4,8)

          This was the information I was looking for!

          Still can you alter these settings?
          This is the default I guess.

          Can you go in and change the snare head
          note without effecting the rim midi note on
          the same input?

          The Ddrum4 has sort of a fixed mode where
          you set the root note of the channel and
          all the other notes will be relative to it.
          (depending on mode 1,2,4,8)

            More questions!

            How does the zone controller correspond to
            the skin?

            what are the values for center ,edge.....
            (or could it be that you got a resolution
            on the millimeter?)

              You can change input types to fit the type of pad you have, dual zone, rim/switch, mono.
              Drumkat Turbo 4.5, Emulator X3, Superior 2.1, Roland Fantom XR, DTXtreme III, SPD-20 etc.......

                          Hey Harlock,

                          do you know what data the TMC-6 sends when using an FD-7 hihat pedal?
                          I assume that it sends out one note number when stepping on it, and changes the note number of the pad connected to input five(closed and open hihat sounds) when you press the pedal, but does it send out a midi CC as well?

                          I'm thinking about getting rid of my Alesis D-4 and using a TMC-6 instead, with which I will trigger sounds from my EMU Proteus 2000. The good thing about the Proteus is that you can assign any midi CC to allmost any parameter, which would be cool with a foot pedal.

                          Music was my first love...

                            That's nice :-)

                            And you can even assign Pitch Bend to the pedal as well? Seems interesting!
