  • Recording real drums into my TD-6V?

    Hi everyone,

    I'm having the TD-6V for almost two years now, and up till now I've enjoied it the way it is.
    A friend of mine bought a real high class drum set, and I'd like to know if (and how) can I record his toms and rims and use it as my kit.

    I must admit that the terms are not known to me that much, so a very detailed help would be great.

    And since I guess it is already written in the forum by now - a link to what I mean would be great too

    (Btw - My friend has a real studio, so I can record it over to his copmuter. I need a better guiding on what kind of files I should save in order to upload them to my module and how to set them up).

    Thanks alot,

    Koby.

    You cannot load sounds into the TD-6, it has no sampling capablities...what you can do, is use the TD-6 to send midi signals to a computer, and have the computer trigger sounds, using a sequencer, or a drum sampler software like BFD or Superior 2.0....

      Can any of the more advanced modules do that?
      Or it's not capable with any of the V-Drums systems?

        Only the SPD-S has sampler capabilities of the Roland modules...I think some of the Yamahas do, though....

                Correct me if I'm wrong, but it doesn't seem that the SPD-S can record and use the recording on the TD module.
                So, there's no way of changing the sound of the module? (Besides playing with the kits?)

                  for the TD-6: No.
                  You can edit the existing sounds but you cannot delete them and replace them with other sounds.

                    kobmyster and hampis, even if you were to sample your acoustic drumsets you will never get anything close to what Superior 2.0 and BFD2 can offer. Remember these programs have been painstakingly compiled with audio samples of each instument recorded at a multitude of velocity levels.

                    Without sampling multiple velocity layers you won't capture the nuances inherent in striking an acoustic drum at different velocities.

                      Seriously, even if you could record and play through the module, it is a HUGE undertaking. Not only would you need to get REALLY good recorded sounds, you would need to record many many samples of each drum/cymbal to get the velocity changes needed.
                      I look at the hundreds and hundreds of sound files that Superior 2 uses for just one kit and it boggles the mind.

                          It seems to me you either should upgrade your kit to a td 12 or 20 see if you can play one these kits at your nearist dealer. but remember electronic drums are different to ,"proper drums" the sooner people treat them as such the easier it will be to accept them. I love electric drums and so do my ears...duncs
