  • Addictive Drums settings

    Anyone using AD with a TD-11? If so, what are your TD-11 driver settings? I'm using an audio buffer rate of 192, and I have ticked "Use smaller ASIO buffer size" and "Use ASIO direct monitor." I have unticked "Light load." Does this seem about right?

    PS. I have posted stuff to the actual XLN site, but responses are very slow, or non-existent. I asked a question three days ago...nothing.

      That's exactly what I'm talking about...we're on the same page. Excellent. Thank you. The only difference is that I also see, under "Active MIDI inputs," my Roland UM-one MIDI cable. not sure if that needs checking too.

        What kind of system are you using? PC/MAC? 64 bit? OS?

            You can gain alot by upgrading to w8/8.1...in terms of lowered latency. The trigger to midi function in a TD30 is about 4.5 ms before it arrives to the PC. Then you have the quite slow audio interface in the td11-15-30. Which will add 3-5 ms...in best case. The VST processing could in some cases add about 1-2 ms. All together about 10 ms...and then the real drum feeling is gone! So what could you really do to lower the latency?...more processing power in your pc! Angr77

                Bypass the TD-30's midi- and audio-interfaces in favor of a dedicated solution?

                  I'm running my TD-11 on a 64-bit 1.8 GHz Vista laptop and I am getting very low latency now that I have a Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 audio interface.

                    HairMetal, bypassing the TD-xx midi functionality is not an option in these cases(feels stupid)... however the sound card part could be an option and use an external sound card instead of the internal Roland one.

                    The focusrite products seems to be a good choice nowadays! I am using an real old m-audio box...fastrack ultra 8r which gives a latency on 1.3ms / 24 bits/ 96 kHz on a windows 8 system. However in windows 8.1...the driver for the card is too old... and gives you a lot of problems. (drivers, drives, drivers)

                    The whole latency chain in my case are about 4-5 Ms

                    Best regards

                      Well, I seem to have solved the latency problem, but the sounds that I trigger in AD by hitting the pads is not as good as the sounds I get from clicking each drum in AD with the mouse. When I hit each pad, mine seem to start with more of a tap sound, so much so that I prefer my old VEX sounds without using AD at all (ironic: I bought AD in search of great sounds)

                        So you're getting close then. You need to get sounds similar to what you get when you click on a kit piece, with whatever velocity you hit your pad with.
                        Do you at least have the right mapping? (ie whatever pad you hit generates the proper kit piece?)

                          Well Gradier I agree with you. I also have AD (and BFD Eco). I'm not overly impressed with AD, particularly the cymbals (maybe AD2 will be better). I like the VEX kits and experience virtually no latency with them.

                          Now here's a real weird thing I do periodically - I play both VEX and AD simultaneously. I get the sound of AD and the instantaneous response of VEX. I know this is not optimum and probably not recommended but it works for me.

                            Yes, I've noticed the same: I get a better sound if I play both VEX and AD simultaneously (that is, I keep the local sound option turned on in the MIDI control of my module). I'm sure that AD should sound better alone, though. Mapping is all correct, but there is a click in the AD sound when triggered by a pad (the cymbals are good though). Latency is low, at least buffer rate is set down low because of the settings available with my Focusrite 2i2.

                              Yeah, my big thing is I'm using the low-end native on-board sound card. It works, but I'm sure if I purchased an external sound card things would get much better. In the interim, I'm going to wait for AD2 and see/hear how that is.

                              Take care....
