    His sound is fantastic! Might be a conflict of interest Pearl and Yamaha, but I am sure there's a way around it. You can call the kit [U]TheWeck keep everybody out of trouble

      I think I read somewhere that this is impossible due to hardware, but I'm not sure. I would live to be able to route the aux in through the mains rather than just headphones

            That is called big supports and taking care of customers.

              Is there a "snares off" setting that I'm missing on the Mimic Pro? That would be a huge wishlist item for me!!!!!!! I've only had the unit for a week...

                Agreed. Pearl and slate have been exemplary in their support of the mimic.

                It gives me confidence that out will be a continually evolving product, unlike many companies that simply release something that isn't finished and expect you to but the next version to get the features that should have been they're all along.

                Mimic isn't getting abandoned by it's parents!

                  If you read the thread vex and mimic pro, see Allan comments, you have already a hint

                    Would like that as well, good one!

                    More things I thought of recently:
                    - A clock on the Home screen or maybe under Sys settings menu
                    - Left and Right arrows (or something like a "Next/Previous Kit" button) to change kits quickly when viewing inside an actual kit.

                      Snare off would be a completely different sample, and would most likely demand being assigned to another pad. If such a sample were offered, it could be assigned to BT-1 attached to the rim... or similar. Personally, I'd want it on another snare pad, with snare-off rim shots, etc.

                        Yeah, I would say they will probably do a few snare off instruments for the MImic (Eventually!). Some VST's or VST expansions have the Snare Off choices, and since the Mimic is basically a VST in a module it would need to be a separate recorded instrument choice. Personally, I have bigger priorities on my own wishlist ..... You also have Brushes, Rods, Mallets ..... some more Brushes and Rods instruments would be good. Higher on the list to me ..... but I think the addition of more in the percussion choices might be higher on the list than all of the above.

                          i'm not sure whats its called, but on high end keyboard you can change to a new sound and not cutting the actually samples before you hit the next key.
                          like when going from the jazzy kit to the brush kit without the cut in the sound.
                          That would be a great feature.

                            "Insta-change". I just copyrighted that. lol

                            Sadly, it takes enormous CPU power, and will not likely happen anytime in the near future. The Mimic handles loading just like a VST on a PC. It takes a little time. You'd have to have PC CPU specs of today's top end, tied likely to M2 type memory on a board capable of writing at 32gb/sec. That ain't gonna happen without the module costing about $5-6k. lol The only reason Roland can do it so fast is due to there being far less samples; and the fact they are extremely compressed.

                              with my I7, 32GB ram, Samsung ssd, it take approx 10 sec to load 1 kits with ezdrummer ( these are low size kits from toontrack go figure) 2-3 sec it pretty fast in mimic.

                                Iím about to build a Ryzen 16 core with 64 or 128gb and dual M2 modules, and I still expect it would takes more than 2-3 seconds. lol
