  • do i really need a td-10?

    ok, i'm pretty new to electronic drums, but i wanted to add some electronics to my accoustics. their are 3 main sounds that i want to incorperate; they are a 808 kick, a wierd snare sound, and a pulse type of ride. i would like to use a kd-7 for the kick trigger but it only works with a td-10 right or can it also work with a td-8? how well does the pd-120 work with the td-8? can i use a td-8 during a gig? sorry for so many questions, i just don't feel like jumping into e-drums with a $1000 module.

    The KD-7, as with all or at least most Roland triggers, works with any or most of Rolands modules. As for the other questions I don't have Roland trigger pads so I can't answer.

      The td-8 is OK for everything you mentioned above. It sounds like the td-10 is definitely overkill for what you are looking for. In fact, it sounds like the td-8 is overkill too.... perhaps the td-6 will have the sounds you need (it works with all the triggers you mentioned).

        Hello Sleeper,

        First, welcome to this board!
        maybe it is an option to buy a second hand module. I know for example that a TD-7 module has 808 sounds and you can do all the things which you described. A second hand module will cost you between $200,- and $400,-.
        Of course you can use any module you want during a gig, but you have to be sure that the outboar gear (amplifier, speakers) that you use for gigs is good enough for the modules. Try it out first!

        Groeten,

        Peter

          thanx for your replies, i was going for the td-8 because i want the editing options it has so if i choose to expand, i can. so for the kd-7 kick trigger to be used with the td-8, it doesn't require anything special, just plug it in? thanks for your info guys
