  • Curious Question

    This has been bothering me for a little while. Where does Roland get their sounds? Or for that matter Yamaha. I guess Yamaha is a little easier to explain (they make lots of good acoustic drums), but what about their cymbal sounds? Did they just go out and buy some Zildjians and sample those? DDrum at least says it gets them from specific drummer's kits (with the "se" signature edition I think it is), but I havn't seen in my casual browsing anything from Roland or Yamaha about where they got their sounds.

    I guess it isn't really all that important, but I sure am curious.

          I think it's very important! I don't use a sampler myself, but if I did I wouldn't buy a sample set without first knowing the sources, miking, processing, bit rate, etc. I wouldn't care so much about all this but the fact that it's listed gives credibility to the vendor. If they really took the effort to do a good job sampling, then they ought to show us how they did it.

            I agree. My TD-8 will become merely a MIDI interface for the pads. Computer system, here I come!!!!

                  Mr. Jude:

                  Sorry, couldn't let it go. IMO your first comments were appropriate. No need for revision.

                    "Sucker" is an appropriate moniker in my case (only).
