    While the overall concept has some similarities, the implementation and arrangement of controls is not the same. There are five function buttons and three rotary controls (that change variable parameters) and they're arranged both above (F1-F4) and below (R1-R3 and F5) the display. Some of the other...

  • Saw that, and am interested to find out more. Unfortunately I doubt I'll be able to get it to run on my receptor (given the untimely demise of Plugorama) which is a great pity - but still looking forward to taking a closer look....

    Loving the feel of the KDA22, and found it more of an improvement than I was expecting. It responds very nicely. And of course it dramatically lifts the look of the kit.

    A few people have pointed out that it's not as quiet as the KD-140, and that's probably true. It certainly sounds a little...

  • It will a great thing to see more platforms supporting PS functionality, and I'm sure you're right that VSTs will get there at some point.

    For a pure sample-based (VST) approach it would multiply the number of samples quite a bit, so more storage and memory would be required (and it would...

  • It's fair enough if you've concluded that some aspect of the Roland sound are not to your taste. That's your call.

    I will say, however, that the V-Ex kits clearly demonstrate that the sound of the modules can be altered massively - to the point where someone familiar with the stock kits...

  • Agreed. I didn't personally think the Strike came off well in that clip (though given its price, it still has something going for it), but between the other two, positional sensing and other nuances aside, it is largely a matter of taste and preference. And we should bear in mind that only a few stock...

    Sounds promising, Alan!

    Looking forward to hearing what you come up with for Studio X. ...

    No problem - just wanted to be clear on what you meant.

    However, FWIW, eq affects timbre (i.e. the relative levels of harmonic content) without altering pitch at all, so timbre and pitch are different characteristics of a sound that can be changed independently. In this case, not even the...

    Thanks. Yes, that's what I've experienced. A change in the perceived tone (brightness), but no change in pitch.

    Meanwhile, I haven't noticed any issues with machine gunning on the TD-50 since installing firmware 1.05 (which was released a day or so after I got the module), FWIW....

    Interesting. I haven't noticed the transient designer settings affecting the pitch. It does change the way the eq is perceived (shorter attack makes the high end seem more accentuated on some instruments). Is that what you mean?...

    Mine doesn't sound like that. The examples uploaded by ddrums61 a few posts back don't sound like that either. Not sure what is going on with yours...



    Whoa! Hardly!! The TD-50 sounds benefit from some parameter adjustments, but in all sorts of respects they are a generation...

    replied to TD-50 versus TD-30 Analysis
    Notice that I didn't say anything about not needing to practice at any level. Just that not all motorcycles need to have training wheels fitted as standard (and compulsory) equipment. ; )



    If you mean a USB memory stick, then that's correct. There is no support for USB memory...
