    Prior to the update, I renamed and saved my trigger settings, then after updating, I reloaded the trigger settings from the backup, so everything worked as it had before.

    I did notice that after doing a factory reset to check out the new kits, the trigger selections all reverted to ones...

    My understanding is that the TD-50 only supports one ride trigger, which can be either digital or analog, but not both simultaneously. When you connect a digital ride, the analog ride input is disabled.

    The question was raised above as to whether you can simultaneously connect two digital...

    Interesting question, and not something I've had a chance to explore.

    Also, I've been assuming that the number of digital connections to the TD-50 will max out at 3, given that there are only 3 sockets. But...technically, USB can support daisy-chaining and hubs...

    ...which...

    Confirmed.

    I also have two CY-15R triggers in my set up. Both are attached to the TD-50 via their bow/edge output, one is connected to CRASH1 and the other to AUX2. Both of them trigger perfectly and the choke function is fully operational.

    Your thought about MeTTaLLoiD possibly...

    Awesome news, and good to hear you've been able to keep plugging away at it despite all the other things you've been dealing with.

    Meanwhile, I will start polishing up my debit card in anticipation of an online transaction on the Vex site soon! : )...

    That's cool, and I've done some similar manoeuvres to line up instruments with my (somewhat non-standard) pad configuration.

    Another thing that I find it good for is if I make a change to an instrument setting accidentally, or I do some edits I end up deciding I don't like, I copy the corresponding...

    Yes. There are some improvements to existing kits in firmware v1.06 for sure - as well as a handful of additional kits sprinkled throughout. And some of the instrument sounds seem better defined and integrated with the kit, which is nice - but overall not something that you couldn't achieve pretty easily...

    Yes, only 256 samples per zone per drum - whereas you would need 15,240 samples per zone per drum to avoid having to fake samples/sounds for intermediate velocity levels. It's basic maths.

    Based on your statement above, the number of samples stored is about 1/60th of the number of samples...

    Yes, that's possible.

    First press SHIFT + SD CARD to access the copy menu, then press the F2 button to access the "Pad Inst " copy option. From there you can use the navigation arrows and jog wheel to select the source and destination kit and instrument, and then you can use ...

    There's obviously a communication disconnect here. You keep stating "this is incorrect" but then corroborating it with the facts and details you yourself cite.

    While it may be true that there are no fake samples *on disk* (depending on the VST), out of the 127 velocity levels...

    Yes, that's about what I see as well. Which lines up precisely with the point Timm was making:



    The calculated siblings are produced to generate 127 velocity levels from a much smaller number of actual recorded strokes, and that was a point you were disputing:

    That would be a minimum of 91,440 files per drum/cym. At an optimistic average of 250KB per sample, that would be getting up to around 350GB of raw data per kit. However even on compressed install format, most of the VST libraries I've encountered are less than 1/10th of that size (and most of the EZX...

    I believe that's a fairly accurate description of the 'calculated siblings approach that Timm referred to earlier. A smaller number of hits are used (scaled) to generate the volume increments.

    Otherwise the only way you can make it work with only 650 or so samples for each drum is to have...

    Interesting, because the only way I'm able to get full-on machine gunning effect on the TD-50 is by playing outside the sensitivity range set for a given pad/trigger. But that would be operator error rather than the TD-50 causing the scatter gun blast. ; )

    As I noted elsewhere, you can...

    Hi Timm,

    That's been my experience as well, WRT the TD-50 -- although I haven't worked with sample-heavy kits enough to know to what degree positional sensing is being applied to the sample component of the sound (my impression is not much if at all).

    But certainly the modelled...

    Nicely played, Bruce! And thanks for sharing your (and Ascent's) work.

    I'm not hearing anything that could be described as machine gunning there either. I also don't think anyone would particularly pick it as being eDrums or a Roland module for that matter. Which is interesting, because...

    I know what you mean, but I don't think the point you're making has anything to do with Oien being (or not being) a sound engineer.

    What you're talking about is the one-dimensional character that repetition of a single sample takes on, that isn't experienced in the same way with successive...
