  • hissing on auxillary jack when recording

    two friends of mine are recording using the TD-10 VDrums. They are recording on both the primary and auxillary jacks so they can separate the various drums sounds on different tracks to their Yamaha for mixing. But there is a hissing from the aux jacks that they cannot clear up. Any info/remedies? Appreciate it. Di

    my guess would be a chord.........or possibly the imput but more than likely a chord......try a diff chord from send to recording device......or post a little more info as to the gear you are using and the specific symptom in detail......

      The aux outs have more noise. The End. It's at least just hiss...but still a bummer. It'll get lost in the mix. If they record as midi first, then you can just loop back that midi to the brain a number of times, catching different parts of the kit on the main outs each time. One pass for Kick (panned and sent to an indivudal track) and Snare (ditto), one pass for a stereo pair of toms, one pass for the stereo pair of cymbals, etc. Seems like a pain, but it works VERY well. Multiple outs are great live, but not as necessary in recording.

      If not recording to midi first, you'll just have to deal with the noise, which I guarantee is WAY less than you'd get in a room full of open mics on real drums (not even including the fan/AC that's probably running). Not to excuse this shortcoming, but there is a limit to how clean a recording needs to be.

        The aux jacks are inputs. You only really need aux1 for the bell on the ride. Just disconnect it if its a problem.

        If you are talking about the direct outs, I use them all the time in addition to the main outs for recording and don't hear any material difference in the sound quality. Maybe they need to just EQ the high end down on those channels a little to get rid of the hiss. The TD 10 does hiss though, particularly when fed into an amplifier. Just run the main and direct outs directly into whatever mixing board or breakout box you are using and not into an amp first. Take everything out of the path that you don't need.

        Put questions like this under "In the Studio".
