  • TD-25 + Mackie Thump 15A + Allem&Heath 10FX

    Hi Guys,

    So far I was playing a DIY set with a TD-25 module at home and listening exclusively on the headphones. All nice and good for the past 5-6 years

    Then, I said I would like to hear my drums on a speaker. So I bought the Mackie Thump 15A and borrowed an Allen&Heath 10FX mixer from a friend. Not so good anymore. The sound on the speaker is far far away from the one I am used to on headphones.

    I kind of expected this, so now I am looking to suggestion on how I can improve it... I already have the Classics and Icons TD-25 VEX expansion kits, those helps. Then I also pan kick on left and all other on right, to be able to mix them separately. Any other ideas? Suggestion on how to mix or what else I can do to improve the overall sound?

    I know Mackie Thumps are not the best speakers, but that was the budget and I really wanted a 15 inch speaker.

    Thanks a lot. Here are some pics.

      Or use VST with computer, be sure to treat the room your are drumming in, untreated it is mostly a mess.....flutter echo.....get a sofa, absorbing materials....book shelves, not that easy, the room plays a very big part. Quite cool controling high frequencies and mobile are things like this, https://www.bax-shop.de/clearsonic-s...RoClvYQAvD_BwE

      Also bigger p.a. speaker are not cool to listen closely to. they need a certain hearing distance, otherwise it is getting quite harsh and annoying.

      There are a lot of reasons I prefer headphones for e-drumming
