    Hello everybody. My name is Julian and i am a live Vdrummer in Auckland New Zealand. I am THE VMAN in this city, Playing the busiest bar on the waterfront every weekend and have pushed Vdrums to extremes. I use a TD8 module with KD85, PD105 and PD125 pads. I used to use my TD12 setup but this bar can get messy so i needed to innovate.I have also had many years of foot operations which has seen me playing in plaster casts from time to time. Vdrum has enabled me to make up configurations to keep me playing even while in plaster!I trigger some live toms and feed all this through a Powered mackie sub and top. I have some technical questions and also feel I have alot of trial and error experience with vdrums live and so I look forward to this forum.

    Welcome aboard Jmad
    Great to have another Kiwi neighbour on board...... hi from across the pond

    One saying that I'm sure you're familiar with that comes to mind reading about the bar getting messy is, "I went to a bar to see a fight and a gig broke out!!"
