  • Drum-Tec Live Sound Edition Roland TD-30

    Has anyone tried any of these modeled packs from Drum-Tec? Thoughts?Opinions? I have some Vex kits and was just wondering what you guys thought of these packs. I have the TD-30 and was thinking of trying the Drum-Tec Live Sound edition which is new and remastered. Looking to find ONE good kit suitable for recording some drum tracks for a friend. My live kits are good to go thanks to Vex.

        Do you have a VST sample library? They are easier to work with for recording. Slate SSD5 was on sale recently.

          I have a td30. There isn’t a kit good enough for recording no matter what you do. For recording I use SD3
          Roland TD30 module on TD20 kit SD3 with various kits. Pearl Masters Kit, Yamaha 9000RC original natural wood finish. Cymbals from Zildgian Pasite and Sabian. Loads of percussion bits. Cubase and Wavelab always current versions.

                I have a TD-30 and a TD-25. I have the Drum-Tec Top 40 Edition and Live sound Edition for my TD-30. I Also the L.A. Studio's sound edition for my TD-25. I gig about 130 times a year. The kits sound good to me. I have had many people walk in to the Casino and they think,,WOW those drums sound good and then they see me playing a TD-30KV Kit. They always ask are those real drum sounds because hey sound like it. """ Thats all I need to hear"" to know Drum-Tec sounds are good. I also have Vex kits. Another great option.
                As far as playing VST (Slate) stuff. I tell you the truth. Slate stuff is good but it always seems to sound a little different through the PA. Plus there's a Teeny bit of latency and I use a MacBook Pro. I tend to stick with the internal sounds on the Modules. Drum-Tec and Vex have already done the hard work of tweaking the sounds. I for the most part I use there kits for everything. . I might tune them a bit but thats about it. Their sounds are Good and get the job done.

                  Thanks ! Great info. BTW do you use any kind of surge protection for your module onstage and do you carry a backup module? You use any of the vex or drum-etc kits to record with? I know my td-30 vex kits kick a** for live gigging. I even built and edited a kit myself. Thanks again.

                    I think you may have overlooked his quote needing a good kit for recording. It is much easier to record the Midi and trigger a vst. He can also record the Td30 and A/B it.

                        The td25/30 will sound good through a pa but that is totally different to recording them where machine gunning and unrealistic sounding drums are far too obvious. As mentioned for recording (not live) try the free ssd5 kit. It’s a massive improvement on the td30 sounds. By the way I really like my td30 which is brilliant for triggering VSTIs and the sounds are ok for practicing with. Also I like the percussion section and none acoustic drums.

                              All should work with it. If you want a good one to try out without having to pay then get reaper. You can then pay for it if you like it. I use Cubase but there are all sorts out there. If you have a Mac then there is logic and another popular one seems to be studio one
