    replied to Stick Module
    There's another open-source project called Microdrum too: http://microdrum.altervista.org/blog/.

    I've also occasionally toyed with the idea of using a stick PC or one of a mini ITX board and integrating it inside my Megadrum enclosure. After some research, I concluded that stick PCs (as...

  • Biting something makes sense to me - I'm constantly tapping beats with my teeth (maybe I'm weird...). Could be a film piezo (they're quite small) encased in food-grade material and lateral chin movements for the hi hat pedal.

    replied to New Beater Triggers From Triggera
    Partly - the piezo and its physical placement in the pad (beater in this case) is very important.

    I made myself a couple of these a couple of years ago and I love them - you can use whatever you want as a bass drum and double triggering due to head vibrations is instantly solved. I prefer...

    As far as i can see it's a DIY project so patents and such aren't a concern. Dissing a DIY project because it's "downgrading" to something like a 2box is hilarious and spectacularly misses the point. If anything approaching a 2box was achieved I'd consider it a major UPgrade....

    If you use Linux for the sample player part, the possibilities are endless... Just a thought: Hydrogen supports multiple velocity layers (currently 16 but could be increased), round robins, effects on each instrument and loads of other stuff. You could probably hack it to just offer the required functions......

  • I know, that's why i said I found it puzzling. If it's not a hardware issue, then why does the shim fix make it better with Roland modules? It's as if the ATV module was saying "Oh, I see you intended to hit the bell gently there, but the switch didn't quite make contact - there you go: ping!"....

    I'd also be very interested in seeing how you'd go about doing this. I'm no expert, but it looks like quite an undertaking if you want it to be able to rival triggering a VST, what with positional sensing, round-robins, audio output, user interface, etc.




    Basically,...

  • This thing about cymbal bells triggering softer hits with some modules but not with Roland modules puzzles me... As stated above, it's a switch that either makes contact or it doesn't. There are no in betweens. There is no way a module can tell whether the switch itself was closed with more or less...

    Well, thanks anyway for taking one for the team and giving it a go. If you want an idea to put the speaker to another use for your edrum kit, have look at this: https://www.reddit.com/r/oculus/comm...while_we_wait/. You just need an amplifier to make yourself...

    Great find!

    DON'T plug anything in yet . Before turning on the module, you might want to open it up to have a look inside in case it's wet or humid. It may not have rained in a while but if at one point in did get rained on, water could have worked its way inside the module and that would...

    I'm not convinced it's a speaker either. If it is, it's all dustcap -presumably with a huge voice coil and magnet underneath- and no cone. I also think it's just a support structure for several sensors or several foam cones/columns/whatever that are mechanically linked to a sensor.
