  • Which module is your main module?

    I'm sure a pool like this has been posted before, but I'm curious as to the breakdown here.

    I didn't get into specific 2 box or Yamaha modules because they don't seem too popular here.

    Only looking for which one is your main. I'd you have 2, choose one please.

    If your specific module isn't listed, phrase choose the most appropriate option and post what you use.

    i have a td-6v. it isn't great.
    Roland TD-6v all mesh, kick swapped for KD-80 mesh with DW5000 double pedal, added pintech and yamaha cymbals with drum splitters, and swapped CY-5 hi-hat (now using as cymbal) for an L80 hi-hat with cheap-o trigger (need to add goedrum hi hat controller to replace FD-8). Attempting (currently failing) to use free trial version of SSD5 VST.

        I've been using a TD-12 for the past 5 or 6 years. I recently went back to an acoustic kit so it's being retired from my set-up.

          TD-11, triggering AD2 and SSD5 (not using oboard sounds anymore).

          Works for me. Everything significantly better for my usecase (even better Latency, more inputs) costs more than my whole current setup.

            Now I know why the mimic gets so much space on here. Half the people have one ;-) itís a good thing as it means the Roland monopoly may well have been broken and may open up for more manufacturers. Iíd still like to have a go on one but havenít found anywhere near me where I can try one. Gear4music sell them but donít have one out to play.

              Megadrum (Any other module)

              Predominantly using SD3. It's not the perfect module, but it's flaws are forgivable given the triggering and latency (the most important qualities) are better than most Roland modules I've played. Still the best value path to e-drumming Nirvana imo.

                I've always been interested in the megadrum.....

                I'm really surprised there aren't more Roland modules. I bet before the mimic the td30 would have ran away with this poll

                    TD-25 here. Good enough for my purposes. Tried the 2Box Drumit 5 and the ATV aD5 but have always gone back to Roland.

                        After 30+ years of gigging, I'm done.
                        Using a TD-17 to trigger Superior Drummer 3 and various Toontrack expansions.

                        Happily at home, recording drum tracks to previous band mate's songs.

                          They are focusing on things that the majority don't care, maybe it will change who knows, but I am afraid for older generation they don't care much, newer one which they never used vdrum, they are blow away with td-17\td25 range module and all hybrid range is their main market, people that started with td-10\td20-td30 are replaced with newer generation, older generation want different things, but the same cycle continue for the youngest.

                              I started out with an old pintech module i used to trigger my bass drums. My 1st set of edrums was a yamaha dx explorer(all rubber pads) i sold that and got an all mesh roland td9. Than i started my A to E and now i have the ad5 module and i love it.
