  • Where to find a great ride bell sound for TD20?

    I've been all through the stock sounds and the VEX Professor pack, but haven't found a ride bell sound that I like. I can't even find a ride sounds that I really like.

    It's difficult to describe the sound that I'm after. Recent Rush has the sound that I'm looking for - nice solid bell, not too pingy, not too deep. I'd like a little more ping without a lot of low frequency buildup with the ride. There just aren't a lot of words to describe ride cymbal sounds...

    Is there anything that I can do to modify the sounds that I have to get closer to ride nirvana?

    You have identified the biggest problem - the difficulty of describing the sound of an instrument in words.

    Personally I like the 22" clean ride, but that's just me.

    I'm afraid if you can't find something in the VEX packs, you are on your own. I would suggest experimenting with cymbal size and EQ.

    Otherwise, you may have to resort to capturing a sample and triggering it via MIDI.

          TDW-20 ride is much better!

          Looks like the TDW-20 upgrade may have fixed me up!

            I like the sound of my Zildjian Zil Bel so what I did was just EQ the hell out of just the bell sound. Still not exactly how I want it, but it's pretty damn good.
