    In the TD-10ex is it possible to assign different reverbs to say, cymbals and snare?

    As far as I know, if you mean effects, you can only assign one type effect per kit and vary the amount applied to each pad/drum. This may be another entry for the wish list/TD-12. Man, that thing will require a 30 year loan to purchase it.

      Funny... while tweaking the eq on some of my kits this weekend, the bands resident tech-head was heard saying of the TD-10, "This thing would be really cool if it cost like $20,000."

        Rus, you can only assign one particular effect per kit. Additionally, the settings for that effect -- either the factory settings or your adjustments to them -- apply to the whole kit as well.

        HOWEVER: There is a feature called Effect Send which allows you to adjust the amount of that effect/settings to each particular trigger.

        So say you have a Gate Reverb effect switched on for a kit, and you want your snare drum to be relatively reverb-free, but you want your ride cymbal to be drowned in reverb. You can go to the 'effects send' page then crank up the send level on the ride cymbal and lower the snare level to zero.

        I would cite which pages it the manual to consult but I'm not at home. Maybe someone else can help you with that.

        P.S. One of my favorite configurations is to take a ride cymbal bell sound, lower the decay so it sounds choked, and add a heavy Gate effect. Nice metallic sound.

          Yeah... I figured it was like that (I'm guilty of not looking in the manual, but it wasn't that big of a deal at the time)

          What I was trying to do is add some verb to the cymbals to push them back a little... but I need verb on my snare to make it sound decent... If you use the same verb on Cymbals and snare it sounds strange.

            Since you spent close to $4k on the kit I would suggest purchasing an outboard effects processor and small mixer with an effects loop and turn the Roland effects completely off. The on board effects are good for scratch pad work but they won't cut the mustard for recording or live playing.

              I guess I'm kinda dense. You choose Reverb Effect for the kit. You say you want it on cymbals and snare. You go to Effect Send and apply the amount you need to each cymbal and the snare and turn the other's down to zero. Then you say same on both sounds strange. Do you mean you just don't like Rolands idea of Reverb? There are a couple different choices of Reverb Type and you can adjust them as well. I'm just trying to understand the question. Already paying the $4k is plenty of reason to get what you got to work.

              Personally, I'd be real upset if I had to buy an effects unit when I paid for one with the V's (yeah, I know the V-Verb is not the best $$ can buy). But you start to make a case for the, the, you know, the red thing.

                Wow, you ARE dense


                I couldn't help it... the door was open...

                I understand that you can apply different strengths of the same verb to different instruments... but it's still the same verb.

                All I'm saying is that in a professional studio, you probably wouldn't use the same verb on both snare and cymbals.
