  • A little discouraged from VEX...

    I purchased the Evolution pack from VEX and loaded it to my TD-15. Great kits, but was a bit discouraged to find that the AUX is not programmed as an additional cymbal, as stated in the description on the page. It was a 4th tom. I was thinking "well, that's a bit misleading, but the pack still sounds great". Just wish I had that aux cymbal as opposed to a tom, but maybe I'll be able to figure out how to program a cymbal in or something... Hard for me sometimes but oh well...

    Here’s my take on VEX (from a previous post) –
    • I recently purchased both VEX Evolution and SYNC kits for my TD-15. You get 50 kits with both sets. However, the Evolution kits are all different – the SYNC kits include 25 unique kits duplicated and ambience/configured as “wet” and “dry”. Also, Evolution has the auxiliary port mapped as a 4th tom; SYNC has it mapped as a china/splash cymbal.

      Both sets sound great – I really do not have preference. Therefore it would be difficult for me to recommend one over the other. However, since the cost for both is the same ($45), you are getting more kits with Evolution. That does not mean they are better, just more of them. It is interesting to hear the difference between two kits configured as wet and dry as offered with SYNC, but again, not necessarily better than EVO, just different.

      Like I said, I bought the Evolution and was disappointed to see the aux was ported to a tom and not a cymbal as described in the description on the page. But so be it, it's s till a great pack. I'd much rather have had the China but I am sure I can figure that out.

        I'm sure you can go into the module and change the Aux voice to another cymbal instead of a tom and save that kit.

          Seems we have a few typos on the site. I will fix them. In most cases, auxiliaries are programmed as cymbals, but our 15 expansions are programmed with 4th toms. As mentioned, it is easy to copy another cymbal to any auxillary and retune it. Sorry for the confusion. I will correct those sections of the site. We have a LOT of products, so things do get missed.

            No worries. I plan to get the other pack soon. So I'm not shutting the door on such amazing work.

              I'm with you G-Rad -- VEX does an amazing job. I also run Addictive Drums 2 -- I like VEX kits as well if not better. Presumably, I am suppose to be experiencing very little if not zero latency with my VST/AD2 setup (high end laptop, external audio interface, etc.) - but, even if I can't "hear" the latency, I can surely can sense it. This is not the case with VEX kits. Because the VEX sounds come directly from the module, I truly sense ZERO latency - and I like that.
