  • New e-drums!

    Finally got my Yamaha DTX400 kit today, & overall, I'm impressed with 'em....Pretty much plug/play with my daw/computer, of course I'll have to tweak settings to get the sensitivity more how I'd like it, but again, I'm pretty impressed with 'em...

    Should be a winner too. as far as the noise I was concerned with, I've been beating on these things for a couple hours now, & the wife is still asleep, so that's a good sign...lol...Take my word for it, if the noise would've woke her up, I'd known about it by now...hahaha

    Here's a quick pic during the assembly after work tonight:

    So far, so good, loaded up several of my drum vsti's (Superior, Steven Slate, Abbey Road 80's/Modern Drums), & haven't had to change really anything to get 'em to trigger the samples...

    A big thing I've noticed though, is I'm not a drummer....Sure, I can bash out a beat, but my hat's off to you guys here that can play the way you do...While I've not commented on any of 'em, I've watched several vids of you guys, & I'm very impressed with your playing ability....Hopefully, I'll be able to half-way keep up before too long...

        So far, I'm really liking these drums...Yes, I should have gotten a better kit, but for a beginner, it's really nice to be able to actually play the drums to my songs, instead of trying to get the software to do what I want it to ...I do have a long way to go on my playing though, but again, I'm really happy with the DTX400....Really easy/simple to set up, basically plug/play, which is nice...

        I've been messing with the different settings on the module today, & have to say I'm pretty impressed with 'em so far...

        Thanks guys!!!

          Another pic of my recording setup, can't really see everything (I couldn't get it all into one pic), but anyway, here's what I've got in my little recording room:

            Thanks for getting back to us. Your room setup beats mine (in the unfinished basement) by a mile.

            I see that by using the KU100 pedal for the kick, you take the biggest noise producer out of the kit.

            I liked the DTX400, glad you do to.
