  • minimal setup for addictive drums triggering

    hello

    I am new to edrums, I read many modules specs online especially midi implementation charts but I will prefer proper experiences.
    What would be a minimal edrum price tag to correctly trigger a vst like addictive drums.

    I would like to be able to control the hihat opening so "continuous" control change transmission is my main concern...

    I would be glad to read your thoughts

    Salut Pascal,

    there are some current threads right now talking about this, have a quick read also in the VST section. Lots of good info there.

    Finally, head over to digitaldrummermag.com to read all about e-drumming with hands on reviews of kits, modules, etc...

    Bonne chance!

      merci Mr Perceval

      I read a lot of stuff and narrowed my choice by 4 options :

      1 Alesis Trigger io with various pads/cymbals may work with some tweaking

      2 Megadrum with various pads/cymbals may work with a lot of tweaking

      3 Roland TD-11K seems very popular with good midi out

      4 Yamaha DTX502 series kit, not so popular but may work well?

      I do not want to pay more than 1000 Euros (around 1000$), I would prefer the Yamaha but Roland has a lot of credit ...

        Bienvenue!

        1- the Trigger I/O is really old... unless you get it for a song, stay away.
        2- The MegaDrum WILL work, and if you stick to mass market products for pads and cymbals, the MegaDrum community has a lot of help files for those products.
        3-4- Roland or Yamaha, since you will not be using module sounds, it comes down to pads and feel. If you prefer mesh or silicon. If you can, go out and play on both and figure which one you like. Also, all Yamaha cymbals are 3 zones. Roland's are 2 zones, except the ride, but requires 2 inputs to make it work as 3 zones.

          thank you for your answer !

          I just ordered a Yamaha DTX522k and a ku100 pedal !!
          The online store(bax-shop) has a 60 day money back garantee, so I will be able to fully test the drum kit.
