  • Can I play fast on a Roland TD 11 KV without misfires?

    I'm not a drummer, but a pro musician with a home studio. Triggered drums use to be the enemy. But it's my understanding that they've come a long way. I'll be moving into a new place. And instead of building another sound proofed room, I'm thinking I'm going to go to v drums. Money is a factor. I'll have about $1500 max (would of course like to come under). I am looking at a used TD 11 KV. I understand there are better sounding modules. But the sounds will mainly be to get me by at practices and monitors during recording. Maybe a gig, in extreme emergencies. But I'll be recording via midi. So I'm not too, too worried about the sounds coming out of the module.
    However, how is the triggering on this thing? I do play fast music from time to time. I remember these things use to misfire if the snare got too fast or something. Does that still happen?

    I have never heard a stock Roland kit of recent quality (last 6 years) miss a note. Play as fast as you want!
    As far as midi using vst's there can be latency if you don't set it up correctly.

      Thanks. Yeah, I'm ready for an intense, pita learning curve for implementing the midi stuff into my studio. Ugh. Not looking forward to that.

        I know Pro Tools is the standard for DAW's but, try Reaper. I have both and can not even get started with PT. It's just too hard to figure out.

          Yeh all the newer roland modules shouldn't skip a hit at all. Good luck with midi!

            It can trigger as fast as you can, and you can play it extremely fast, with all the pads close together.
