  • Apparently it's USB buffer latency + a few other things; I think the MIDI>USB latency itself is negligible. Have a look at this article: http://djtechtools.com/2011/05/03/la...a-brief-guide/.

    My driver says the latency is 0.5 ms, but actual real latency is about 7 ms. I have since upped...

    If it could be reliably replicated that would be a major breakthrough as it would really simplify things. If so, I'm guessing it should work with plastic cymbals too as they also warp when hit. Haggis-man: do yours also pick up light edge hits? A couple of pics of how you installed the switches would...

    Hi,

    Do you mean that the edge zone is triggered even with the membrane switch underneath? That would be very interesting.

  • The ones electrodrummer linked to are fine, Murata is a good brand, so wherever you live you can look for those. Just stay away from cheap chinese ones - they tend to be weaker both electrically and physically.

  • Put simply, it's the number of samples processed per second, so at a higher sample rate more samples (audio data) are processed within the same amount of time. It also puts more strain on the computer though, so you have to find a value that works well with your computer. Here's a more detailed explanation...

  • True, but still, when using VSTs, being able to lower buffer/frame sizes and increase the sample rate will ultimately result in lower latency, regardless of what the driver reports and what it actually is; it boils down to how far you can push your hardware. I did tests back in the day and I know I...

  • You know it makes sense There are Linux distros that are specially built for audio stuff with the tweaks done for you. As I also use my PC for work I prefer to use a 'plain' distro that better suits my needs and preferences and do the audio-related tweaks myself. If you decide to give it a go and...

  • DIfferent VSTs make a big difference. Addictive Drums is quite light on resources, but SSD4 really takes it to another level, at least on my system using a carefully-tweaked Linux. I haven't tried EZdrummer, but I imagine it would be at least like AD. Note the latency reported by the driver in the bottom...

    There you go: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1-PC...608.0.0.ZpBigx
    As I said above, make sure the DC socket is insulated from the housing. I also used a thin sheet of rubber under the...

    Ok, thanks, I suspected as much. I have managed to make the vibrations more defined with filters, but like you say, stronger vibration isn't necessarily better. If I turn mine up to full power I can even feel the vibration in my face. If I dial it down the kick produces a pleasant thud that rings less...

    replied to Tinnitus
    Same here, only I used to wear earphones and crank up the volume high enough to drown out the noise from the lawnmower, hedge cutter, etc. Many, many hours listening to AC/DC and Motorhead at insane volume levels have left me with a permanent, (for now) low-level high pitched hum. If I focus on it,...

    Thanks! Yeah, I reckon more vibration gets to you as there's more direct contact with your backside as opposed to attaching it to the stool shaft. The thing is, my stool is kind of DIY and I didn't have a problem with drilling through it - if you don't want to do that you might have to look at other...

    El Cheapo buttkicker

    Hi,

    I made myself a cheap buttkicker for my drum throne using a bass shaker that's normally used for home theatre systems and video games. While probably not remotely as powerful as a buttkicker or throne thumper, it still does give a nice thump for your throne to give you that tactile...
