  • Hi from Roland Vdrum owner

    Just found this site. I've owned my Roland V-Tour Series TD-6KX since mid August of 2008. I've been playing acoustic drums for 30 years or so. I'm in my early 40's and this is my first electronic set, so all this electronic drum stuff is new to me. Right now I'm just using the stock sounds. Haven't changed anything. To be honest, I really don't know how. I've briefed the instruction booklet but it's greek to me. But I'm willing to learn. My first attempt will be to get some sound out of my hh foot pedal. I found something on the site on how to do that. But didn't save the page so I'll have to find it again. But that's what prompted me to sign up.

    Thanks

    If it's greek to you maybe Hampis can help (inside joke).

    Seems there are a lot of 40-somethings discovering e-drums lately. I wish I was in my early 40s again. Oh well. Welcome aboard and have fun.

      I'm on the downhill side of 40 and am just getting into these also. Looking forward to it...we're all kids at heart.

        you can go here : http://www.vexpressionsltd.com/
        to buy really really good presets that make your kit sound much better!

        go to page 66, right hand coloum in your manual to see how to change the pedal volume, though my argument is that even set at max it is too low, which is why I eventually bought the td9 brain...others disagree with me, but you can find out yourself...

        and welcome to the forum! it's a great place...

            Thanks for all the welcomes.

            I need to do a lot of reading. I need to figure out all types of things from volume, to tinkering around with sounds (how to change tune, ect.... what it all means.......), pa/monitor speakers (I found a good article on this) I'm sure I'll find more. But that's a start.
