    If you aren't pressed for $$, keep it! You actually have me thinking of matching up with some TD30 pads for myself.

      Hard to keep in mind something you don't know about.
      Are you serious?
      Can you point any reasonably big company that keeps the development process open?
      Don't you think there is a good reason for that?

Otherwise I use my TD-30KV kit with VEX and Drum-tec sound packs. When placing my crashes, 14 (2) or 15" ride ( I have 2, 15" using one as a crash/China) I don't have to worry about where I place them on the kit. Rolands stuff is pre-calabrated. No issues. With my Mimic I have to put each drum pad and cymbal in the exact space to make sure the calabration is correct for that pad and that pad only. I don't want to have to worry about that everytime I play (130 times a year) not counting practicing at home. Yes there are slight nuances between like pads which have caused triggering issues before. I really have to go by the pads serial numbers to remember,,,,,I don't want to have to remember. I want to set up,( that takes an hour and a half) Play, tear down, pack up and go home (another hour). Any time saving measres are important.

        I'm very torn about it. Thinking I might be making a mistake.
        it seems that you are getting so much bad feelings connected with mimic, so I really don't see why do you need it.
        Seriously.
        These kind of things should bring joy, not pain =)
        If something does not work for you, why keep it?

        I know some people are just waiting for some miracle to happen with the next software update, but it's really strange to me personally.

        PS roland stuff is not pre-calibrated =) When you have just 2-3 velocity layers in crash or any other instrument - there is no need for precise calibration, it just plays a little quieter or louder, the sound is the same. I think you'll skip my words but I just have to say it.

        PPS Gimme a funding and I'll make a plug'n play drums =) But no one want to take a risk for a few millions of $
        weird world =(

          I could never fund a project that would be so secretive as the one you would create. I would have to know that my millions was doing something.
          JUST KIDDING.
          Luv ya, Man.
          Keep up the fantastic work.

          @RR. I would keep it. It don't eat that much. Maybe one day it will fit your needs better.

            Reese, you will never like any other module then Roland, you like synthetic sound\ ultra highly processed, and how Roland works,you like these sound of td-25, td-30, td-11\td15 and you are used with Roland since lots of years and comfortable with, there will be no other module will works like Roland guarantee, don't waist your time buying, frustration to learn anything new, will be complete different not like Roland, Roland is synth with very limited sample and don't require much time compare to complex multilayered instruments in any way and config.

              ha - you would be INSIDE the project then )))

              seriously, people can't live with "hey we are testing new super duper mega feature but we can't tell how it works, if it works at all, and when it will be available (if it will be available at all)" =)
              Yes, that is correct, some things that are in development - got never released, because after spending a month or two on development and testing you understand that it just does not work as it was supposed to work. It's a pain even for the dev team...

              What if the Gewa or DW or name any drum company would jump out of nowhere with a mimic-killer-product for a half of the price?

              I mean yes, that would not likely happen... but no one was expecting the mimic from Pearl =)

                Great, I will start getting all the $$ together today. I will start by looking under the cushions of the couch (always good for at least $.75) next under the car seats.
                Should have the first 2 million in no time.

                Shhhhhh, rumor is DWGWA has the Mimic killer almost ready. They are just waiting for some updates from Medeli. It's a secretive kind of thing you know.

                I wish I knew now, what I am not going to know anytime soon

                Hugs & kisses to all the Dev teams hardly working out there!

                  Personally I am not one to hold on to equipment just for the sake of what if. If you have only used the Mimic two times in the last year that is saying a lot. It obviously does not fit your needs, and based on your comments the cons seem to out way the pros.

                  I recently switched back to the TD-50 from the Mimic and don't regret it one bit. My timing could not have been better with VEX's recent release of the Infinity pack. This pack has taken the TD-50 to a whole new level. It really is quite amazing.

                  Maybe sell your Mimic and get a TD-50 with Infinity Pack.

                    Couldn't you just check ebay and reverb for how much the mimic has sold for? I mean anyone with any forum experience knows that question is going to lead to these conversations. Or maybe that is the point?…………….

                      I personally think I need to spend more time on Mimic. Yep, I do like plug and play stuff but,,,, I have gotten a couple of KILLER snare drum sounds out of Mimic using internal sounds and layering them with snare samples from Roland TD-30 and Yamaha DTX900. I know it sounds crazy but i like it. Cracky, fat, in your face snare sounds. We all have different tastes. Not quite ready to let go.

                        You have a TD11, TD30 and Mimic pro and the only one you choose not to use is the Mimic….definitely get rid of it. It clearly doesn’t do it for you and I can’t imagine what future updates will do to change your mind. Theres a good home out there with someone who will love it. PMPs do not belong in boxes on shelves.

                          I think you're joking but if not, it ain't going to be the GEWA that's a Mimic killer. I think it would be pretty hard to kill, despite the suggestion from respected developer. The Mimic is a virtual Ludwig 3 ply that can only be rivaled by another virtual VST in a box, which we already know the GEWA is not. If DWGWA stands for something else forgive me.

                          Either way the Slate and Pearl team have created a gorgeous musical instrument. I will always be selling old gear and buying new stuff, but this one is a keeper and needs no magical updates. It's a Moog/Oberheim for drummers.

                          Sounds like it's getting some newfound use by this thread starter. Stacking sounds is neat.

                              I agree and hope so about the updates.
