    replied to Midi note number help
    I don't have the manual, and I no longer own the module. I was asking because I was going back and remastering some of my old songs with the new setup I use, and even if I did have a manual, I am blind now, so I would not be able to see the screen, however, I did find the answer I needed though. Thanks...

    Oh d... and here I was hopeful because the only thing keeping me from slamming down the cash right now is the fact the module is not blind user friendly... I was hoping they'd come up with something like a parameter's editor so that way people like myself could use the kit. Nothing at all wrong...

    Midi note number help

    Hey guys, I need to know the default midi note numbers for the aux inputs 1-4 head and rim on the TD-20. IF anyone can help me with this, I'd appreciate it. Thanks!

    Hmm, well I was thinking of something... Maybe someone can shine some light on this and if anyone's good at programming, could help me with this concept, provided it's possible.

    The idea is to use the "load/save" function on the kit as a "gateway" for an external app...

    Sound editor? Now I'm curious. I contacted Pearl and they said they have no sound editors as of right now for their module. well, not PC side, because if I wanted to use one, I'd need it. (being blind and all)

    That actually sounds like it'd be easier to work with than say, the TD-15, which has just F1-F3 and up/down arrows Enter, and a single rotary encoder. I generally have to make a mental note of where I am with the settings and adjust one thing at a time. This is sounding like it'd be a bit...

    How is the module layout in comparison to, say, the TD-20. That, and menu layouts? Does it use the F1-F4 button menu trees?...

    I have a question for anyone who is fluent with this module...

    Is there any PC side software that would grant me control of the module as a whole? For example, can I have something that would allow me to make pad setting changes and transfer packs to the module, vise versa. I know VDrumLib...

    replied to Official Pearl Mimic Pro Discussion Topic
    Being a blind drummer, I am curious about something regarding this module, and I was wondering if it'd be possible to control this module via a PC software through, say and OSC portocol?. The reason I ask is since this module is touch screen based, I was wondering if I could use OSC or something...

    replied to Addictive Drums 2 for the Blind
    Update: we have kit piece controls accessible, but a bit bugged, however we're working on that. Once we get that figured out, the software will need the mixer parts done, if we can manage it, then we'll work on the beats section, but that's the lowest priority since the intention is to use it as...

    Thanks, and I will find out about that, because the more I can make accessible, that'd be awesome, problem is, I'd have to purchase a Mimic module, and what not. Right now, I've been working with Addictive Drums 2, and well, today I did my first decent beta test and made a video explaining what I've...

    I sent an email. Hoping to hear something soon and we can possibly help them answer some of their questions and achieve some of their goals. We shall see. Thank you again for your support.b

    Right on. We've come a long way so far though. THis setup is easily doable with AD2 for the obvious reasons, and the XLN online downloader and what not have been made accerssible for us blind people, so that way it can be usable, otherwise screen readers would not see it. So many companies these...

    replied to Mixer / Headphone amp advice?
    I use a Behringer ZMix 802 with a pair of Audio Technica ATHM50x headphones. The mixer gives me PLENTY of volume, and can even be too loud for me, and I'm with severe hearing damage.

    Plus the module into one of the stereo channels, and plus your audio player into the other, you have headphones...

    Addictive Drums 2 for the Blind

    I've posted this on the E-Drums forum on FB, but thought I'd post here.

    For those of you who are familiar with drum VST's probably know about Addictive Drums 2. Well, You may also know it's fully visual with mouse clicking, and thus being inaccessible for the blind.

    Well, I'm...

  • TD-12 is a good choice. I'm planning on ditching my TD-15 and going to a TD-30 and getting some vex packs for it. My situation is a bit different though, because of my lost vision, however I can attest that triggering VST's with a Roland module is about as smooth as butter sliding down a hot plate....

    Cymbal Compatibility

    Have some basic compatibility questions regarding 3 zone cymbals. I am going to be building a whole new setup from scratch. Hoping to sell my TD-15 with Pintech cymbals and DIY pads and going to get a TD_30 and build a new kit from there. I was looking at 3 zone cymbals and saw the Alesis DMPad16r...

    Thanks, and yes, I still play both my acoustic and electronic kits. I just want to update to a new module.

    I figured I'd probably end up treating the TD-30 or what not like I do the previous modules. The menu is basically a folder tree, and that makes it easy to remember. Chances are...

    Hey everyone!!

    Hey everyone, it's been 137+1 years since I've been here... How is everything?

    A lot has changed for me, for those who don't follow me on Facebook or YouTUbe, I have lost all of my vision in December of 2015, and because of it, lost a lot of abilities.

    Honestly, I am coming...
