  • Rhythm Coach RMP-5

    Just wanted to voice my approval for this product. This thing rocks. So usefull and so much fun.


    I am such an amateur with drumming stuff so it's hard to put into words why this thing rocks, but trust me on this... a very usefull practice tool and totally worth the money.

    I just went ahead and bought it. There's not a whole bunch of reviews on the internet for this thing, but if you are considering getting it, just get it. You won't be dissapointed.

    That's all.

    I found a few YouTube clips about it and it does look like it would be a useful tool for me too.

      I find it just tells me how much I suck! Heh.
      Seriously though, it is a great tool to improve accuracy and balance.

        Have you tried plugging in a kidk pad? If so, does it show the rhythmic accuracy for the kick or just the volume (as shown in the video)?

          I just tried that out, pasta, and it does register the external pads. I have a CY-5 and KD-8 hooked up to mine and they work well. The only problem seems to be in the stroke balance section. The external pads are way hotter than the built-in pad and medium strokes will send the needle all the way to the right.

            Michael, do you have the RMP-5 or an earlier model and if so which one?

                Would a pot inline solve that?

                  Have you tried setting the correct pad type for the external pads?

                  From page 20 of the RMP-5 manual:

                  1. Connect compatible pads to the External Trigger In jack.

                  2. While simultaneously holding down the [METRONOME] and [COACH] buttons, turn on the power. The RMP-5 is now in the parameter setting mode.

                  3. Press the [+] or [-] button to switch the Input Mode to "H-2" (This is the default setting, when connecting one pad that is capable of playing rimshots, select "H-r").

                  4. Press the [COACH] button. Once "typ" appears in the display, you can select the Trigger Type. Press the [+] or [-] button to select (the correct pad type) to match the pad you have connected. When you strike the pad, “EXT1” or “EXT2” flashes, indicating the pad being set. Confirm the selected pad and then set the trigger parameters.
