  • Hello - New Here

    Hello everyone! I've already made some posts but I figured I should probably introduce myself. I've been playing drums for about 15 years, mostly self taught.

    I live in the north-east USA. I own the Roland TD-11K V Drums with extra dual zone ride cymbal. I plan on using a drum splitter and getting an extra pad now that I read about that suggestion here on the forums. I've also learned about the V-Expressions so I'll most likely purchase the 30 APEX kits for my module. I also run everything through a Roland Quad Capture into my Macbook.

    I'm a musician who uses V-Drums for fun and recording music. While drums is my main focus, I also play guitar and a little bit of other instruments. I'm currently writing and recording my first full EP all on my own, learning as I go.

    I've been an unpaid spokesperson for Roland everywhere I go. I've made many Youtube posts defending or recommending Roland V-Drums. For me, the praise is warranted because I've had nothing but good results with every Roland product I've ever used or purchased. I would love to be sponsored by such a great company. =)

    I've sought out and found a lot of useful information on the web with regards to V Drums so I always try to help where I can. I look forward to chatting with all of you.

        Welcome, please do post when you finish recording! I'm hoping to have some stuff to share soon, just trying to get my cymbal setting worked out before doing my tracks.

        What recording software do you use?

              Thanks for the warm welcome!

              To answer a few questions:
              -I use Garageband, Ableton, Audacity, and Logic for recording.
              -I only have some electronic, experimental, instrumental demos for listening atm (no V-Drums used on any of them). The music I'm working on for my album is different, more rock/pop based and with vocals. I may include some electronic elements but there's no outline to how it's supposed to sound.
              -I'll post some pictures eventually. I like to remain anonymous on here. =)
              -My EP should be done around February, March, April...just a rough estimate. I may seek out help with bass guitar parts, keyboard/piano, and music theory.

              I love the DIY process but I'd love to be in a band. I really want to tour the country and see the world so having a band and people to share the experience with is my ultimate dream in life. It's great to be with a community of people who appreciate music!
