  • Kit Volume Reset Question, TDW-20, Vdrumlib

    I too am a new owner of the TDW-20 and have a question for you experts that have Vex kits and Vdrumlib.

    After I imported my VEX kits (in the past I had boosted the kit volume of all of them to 125), the volume between the exp kits 1-50 is significantly different from my imported VEX kits. Is there any way to "reset" the kit volume on a selected number of kits (51-100) to a lower level? Kinda like a batch function, rather than do each one separately?

    I do have vdrumlib too, if that is the answer.

    Thanks.

    No, there's no way to do that either on the module or with VDrumLib. (COPY, VOLUME on a TDW-20 only copies instrument mixer settings, not kit volume.) But it only takes a couple of seconds for each kit to increase the kit volumes.

    I think the principle with kit volume is that ideally you would want to listen to each one briefly in order to be able to balance the overall volume between kits; "If differences in volume levels between kits is a problem, press [MIXER] - [F4 (KIT VOL)] and adjust “Kit Volume” (the overall kit volume)." (TD-20 manual, Page 83.) You can do this by leaving one of the preset drum patterns (P 1 - P 4) playing while you make adjustments to a group of kits.

      You can do the same thing with the master gain. I believe it's (can be through preferences) a global choice on the TDW. (I could be wrong about that... I'm not at the set this moment)

      I agree that what Bruce offered is a better way to do it however. This ensures each kits is exactly the volume you need.

        Thanks guys, that is what I figured was necessary. I was just checking with the experts.
