    I can understand the need for something like the Throne Thumper for live use (be it for 'feeling' more bass onstage, keeping time, whatever...) as you're surrounded by much louder noise so it makes sense that you'd need more power. But for home use - Kabonfaiba, at what strength do you use it at home?...

    I think there's a difference between stage use and home use. On stage it's supposed to be useful to help you keep time when there's a loud stage volume and maybe the actual sound of the kick gets lost in the blur of sound. In this case you'd use it at a much higher level and maybe these 'cheapo' solutions...

  • If the CC, note and therefore also the velocity (channel, etc) data is sent by the centre trigger in a single packet, that's what the VST is going to use to trigger the hit, and then it will trigger the edge piezo note with its velocity, etc. You can't tell the module to pick and mix the data you want...

  • Why didn't you read the whole thread? You'd see that a centre cone also works. It's not a perfect solution but what you want to do is not possible.

    replied to SSD5 at last.
    Thankfully there's a demo version and I was able to see if I could make it run in Linux/Wine/Carla. I had to extract and organise all the library files manually because the wizard failed to do so properly, but once I sorted that out I was very pleased to find that it actually works. The only glitch...

    replied to Kick Pedal question
    I agree that as a beginner it'd be silly to spend a large amount on a pedal without knowing whether it will suit you down the line or not, but I think you should at least get one that allows for adjustments beyond just spring tension. It's also good to be able to adjust beater angle and footboard height...

    Is your copper self-adhesive? If it is, maybe the surface wasn't clean before sticking it on. I have several cymbals that use self-adhesive copper tape and that's not happened to a single one of them in 3 years. If it isn't, I can only suggest that you get some, and make sure the surface is properly...
