  • New here, how do I......?

    Greetings from Central California. I awaiting the arrival of my V-studio set w/TD-8 module to add to my home recording studio. She is due any day now. I was wondering how do I post gear info on the left side of the page? Just laughing...I think my list would be longer than the message.
    Other gear:Roland: A90ex, DR-770, XV-5080 w/SRX1-4, MC80ex, VS-2480, Mackie: 1642, M1400i, 2ea C-300

        Thank you for your help. I am glad I found the group and hope to learn alot from it. I am a beginning drummer. I purchased the V drums for use at home for my home recording studio work. I have played piano for 30 years. I picked the name Clav because I play a Yamaha CVP-96 Clavinova at church. I am presently working with a small Church orchestra and a Praise Band. My praise band is trying to make the transistion to a live drummer instead of using the canned styles on the Clavinova. The unit we are looking at for church is the SPD-20 with the Hithat and Kick triggers added on for a starting kit. We will use the Roland drum monitor system for amplification.

          Good to have you here Clav. This place is nuts and I think most here wouldn’t have it any other way and oh yes…. everything you need to know is here, everything!
          If you think of a topic, type it in the search function and give it a try – you might get a lot of info back and it could be a lot to go through, but it makes for good reading material (plus the answer(s) you need). If not just ask, you might get yelled at for not using the search better but that is part of the family love at this forum – so don’t take it personally and fire away.

          How are you planning to run your module as far as outputs, using an outboard mixer or not? Will you be using any signal processors?

              Yes, I have an external mixer and PA system. I have a Mackie 1642 VLZ, connected to a Mackie M1400i and then to C300 speakers. That is presently both my monitor system for the studio and the equipment I would take on a gig, and yes it is turned way down. The midi equipment will all go through a midi switcher(don't have yet). I will be able to record the drums with both the TD-8 and the MC-80. With the MC-80, I hope to be able to record the midi sys messages of the VS-2480, the A90ex keyboard, the XV-5080, and the TD-8 all at the same time. The MC-80 is capable of being slaved and controlled via the VS2480 mixer. To make things even more interesting, while I am recording the midi, I will also be recording the audio on the VS-2480. The XV-5080 has 24 bit sound out and will be RBussed to the VS-2480. I have the SRX-01 drum expansion module which adds even more drum sounds to the collection, and if that is not enough the 5080 can play samples loaded in via Aiff, wav, Roland or Akai format samples. The MC80ex, XV5080 and VS2480 all have SCSI on them so they will connect to a QPS CD-RW rack for data input out options.

              Signal processors: while the TD-8, XV-5080, and the VS-2480 all have COSM, the VS-2480 is packed with signal processing options, and is capable, when fully expanded to process 8 stereo effects or 16 mono effects. How I deal with analog signals with harmonizers and mic selection and tube preamps are things I will have to work out when I have the available funds.
              Present mics are: 2 Shure SM58, 1 AKG 3000B

              Needed: Power conditioner/UPS unit, thorough understanding of the equipment, business license and business plan.

              Whew!! I could never do this while I was married.

                Hey dude,

                that's a nice system you've got there

                I used to have a hardware sequencer as well and I wanted to use my ddrums with it, but that didn't work very well. The resolution was 96 ppq which was to low to handle all the midi CC's from the hihat controller. Does the MC-80 have a higher resolution? Make sure to check that out before getting a huge dissapointment!!

                anyway... good luck with your v-drums!

                Greetings,
                Pieter

                  The Roland manual for the MC-80 claims 480 parts per quarter note.
