  • Two E-kits - One monitor system

    hello all - I currently have a DTXplorer kit. I'm thinking about keeping it instead of selling. If I get another kit and keep them in the same area would I be able to use my one monitor system (Yamha MSD50)? Could I split the cables from it to the outputs of both modules?

    Thanks

    You could use a small mixer (i have a peavey pv6) and have both kits going in and a stereo output to the monitor.

    In fact I use the same monitor on one of my kits and the use of a mixer before the monitor really made a difference with this unit and it now sounds good rather than Baaad!

      Can you please provide a link to what you're referrring to? I'm not familiar with the type of mixer or what exactly I would need.

        Just google peavey mixer pv6. Run 2 out put leads from each module into the mixer and then 2 leads from the stereo out put from the mixer , into the 2 input channels on the monitor. This gives extra control over the EQ going into the monitor which can be easily adjusted to suit the room you are playing in.
        I found that the yamaha monitor only sounded good if played loud, but this was not always appropriate.
        The mixer allowas better quality of sounds particularly on cymbals but at lower levels.

          I don't normally recommend Behringer products, but in this case they make the perfect mixer for what you want to do, and they are inexpensive. $50. Just run the L and R outs of each module to the 2 channels that are stereo, and then connect your speakers to the main L and R outs.

              Yeah, some Behringer mixers are great. I only mention the peavey as an example, but you should be able to pick up a small mixer cheap
