  • Shack adapting to kill machine-gunning toms?

    I was curious if anyone has ever tried using a shack adapter to assign two toms sounds that are very similar to one mesh pad. Will the velocity sensitive toms help
    reduce the machine gun effect?

    You know, I've had my VPros for almost 1.5 years and have never heard this so-called machine-gun effect. In my early Vdrum.Com days it was scarcely brought up. I followed all of the setup/startup instructions and everything has sounded fine to this day. Very impressive for right out of the box. I do not have the TDW-1 so I don't know if it is related, but it is a coincidence that this effect is showing up more frequently on this board.

      Feefer, on a different note, I have the vsession kit and currently bought two single piezo visulites(splash and china). Since I am only using 2 of the ride zones I had aux 1 free. Now aux 1 and 2 are used by the visulites however, I need to add more splash's and one more roland cy-14 crash. Correct me if I'm wrong but you can only grail when one of the two pads being grailed together have an fsr trigger.
      In the vsession kit the only fsr triggers are in the v-cymbals, which already triggers a rim and head sound per cymbal. Do I have any thing left to grail with? All my other triggers are single piezo. The only thing I can come up with is to stereo split the piezo trigger in the vcymbals with a few 10 inch splashs, which leaves me with same sound just in two from two different locations(triggers). Can grailing still help me? Have you found a way to grail two differnt piezos because I have 4 pd-100's and a kd-120 that I am not using the rim triggers on.
