    Wow.

    Just.Wow.

    It's the best 10-min triggering e-drums I've watched... ever. If you don't have time for the whole thing (which is worth it) just skip ahead to 8:25 and you'll get a good demo of all the kit pieces for 1:30.

    This is what happens to companies that...

    Only because the state of e-drumming has stagnated for the last 10 years or so.

    We've been conditioned to accept crappy sounds and machine gunning, because most e-drum company preferred to rehash old tech, instead of moving forward.

    e-pianos have considerably improved over...

    Compression was through the roof. The snare wasn't too bad, but the toms were horrible.
    Didn't like the HH either.

    It's a bit early, but if that is the best they can do after a year of "tweaking"... meh...

    Looks like the Mimic is THE ONE, and the Alesis will...

    Huh... I hope we get a better video than the 2 posted above.

    The Alsesis Strike teaser is just dumb.

    The sounds from Tim's demo were pretty horrible. Will have to find out if it's the mismatch between the speakers and the drum kit, or ...

    Thanks Chris for the pictures.

    Any chance to get a few pics of the cymbals as well? Any scoop on those cymbals? 2/3 zones, Roland style (2 plugs for 3 zones) or Yamaha (1 plug for 3 zones) ?...

    Typical big business behaviour. Same happened (still happens) with the likes of Apple vs Samsung. Suing, counter suing , it goes on and on...meanwhile, each company continues as they see fit.

    Explains a a bit why getting the Strike out took so long. Doesn't explain the straight up lies...

    Geez, I don't miss icy Montreal at all!
    These days, it gets down to 15C and I feel so cold.... Lost my Canadian skin!

    not far from you, in Longueuil, is Quartz Percussion. He will have all the parts you will need to DIY your pads. He's got pre built setups, or single parts so you...

    replied to TD-12 Software for OSX, what can I do?
    Well, since your TD12 is a lot older than 2years, it's a safe bet it will work with VdrumLib.

    Plus, it's the only one, to my knowledge....

    replied to Alesis Strike Pro price drop
    Funny though.... No video, no marketing to get people excited... If the module was indeed ready, you'd think they would try to build some hype.... Remember NFUZD?

    Im sorry, but Tim does not have a great track record regarding Alesis statements. So, I'm taking anything he might say and...

    That's great. This way you don't need to add the electronic circuit shown in the Yamaha diagram. It's just plug and play.

    Enjoy!

    Good info for TD50 owners now and future.

    2017 will be a year of comebacks, I can feel it, so I expect you to recover and be healthy again.

    Take care....

    One of the reason for side mounted triggers is to get rid of the hot spot, especially on modules that do not support it.

    How's the centre version working for you?

  • You have to wonder though... Is it the samples that are not so good, or the is it because the demo is crippled with too few samples ?...

  • Ha!

    Got it!

    It was Kontakt ... because it cannot discover absolute paths by itself.
    I was getting the "Missing Files" dialog, but I just assumed it was because the Core Kit was a Demo and missing some files intentionally.

    Nope... you have to...

  • Well, I'm at my wits end...

    Tried every combination possible, there's just no sound coming from Kontakt.
    I've sent an email to VI Elements to see if there could be an incompatibility with the newest version of Kontakt, or if it's only on my end.

  • I'm not even connected to the drum module yet. I'm just trying to get some sounds. I tried switching to omni... no change. Using the Kontakt virtual keyboard, I get the app to learn the midi note I push on the virtual keyboard, but no sound comes out. I did go to the Prefs menu and choose my audio...
