  • I'm so torn

    Okay, I want a new kit. i had a roland TD6 brain with a Hart Dynamics kit. I love it, and I hate it, I'm actually wanting a new one, and I'm in LOVE with the TD9. I love the features, and the scope, or the HMYS (How Much You Suck) Feature as I like to call it), but the expanding features are sub par. I think it only has two aux ports. That, and I have a real kit, and I like haveing all that room, and the TD20 seems to be what I REALLY want. But the price... oh the price... I mean, if i don't spend for a few months to get atleast half of it up front, I can pay the remaining on credit.

    I guess I want to know, is it possible to get more out of the TD9 other then the one port they offer? are there things you can buy that you can make it add to the kit? (like a trigger adder or something).

    You can use a trigger-to-midi-interface to add 6 or more inputs and use the TD9's internal sounds. Page 51 of the OM...download from Roland

      Second module

      Another option is to get another module to add to the setup. Can do MIDI stuff, make it act like a TMC-6, etc. There are some functions that they took out of the TD-9 that are in the TD-6 (pad pattern being one of them). Had to drop the cost somehow.

            I've upgraded my drum module 3 times in just a few months.

            Save yourself the hassle and money and just wait until the td-20 is in reach. You really won't be satisfied until you do (I know I wasn't and could have saved some bucks if I would have just went the td-20 route to start with).

                  I would save for the td 20 if it's what you really want. Have you thought about any of the other rolands.
                  Alot of people here on V drum use the td 12 and td 10 and are very satisfied. I use the td 8 on my converted Mapex and I love it.
