  • The Mimic has tuning,sample layering plus compression an EQ on EVERY MIC of every drum. It will also have future full multisampled libraries and a multisample import.There is also a reverb and attack/decay control. You can adjust the room mics and overheads independently....

    The last time I went to the San Francisco guitar center, there wasn't anyone working in drums.That was better than when there is someone working there....

  • You are right. Take any snare from the Td50. Post a sound file of it with no processing and the real room and overhead mics. Now listen to the Mimic snare because they also have no processing and direct ,overhead and room mics.
    I am seeing everyone is just trying to repair the kick and snare...

  • That is not true at all, although SOME raw samples sound like that. Listen to the Mimic pro, those are also raw samples ....

  • I got the 215's and they will work for stage monitors but sound pretty shrill compared to everything else I have. I also think the AT M50's sound too harsh too. The Sony 7520's are forward sounding but pretty smooth and my Audeze LCD XC's are what I compare everything too. The 7520's make a good 2nd...

    replied to Official TD-50 Discussion Thread
    My understanding having been a beta tester for some VST companies and opened up sample library wav files, is that most use 6 or 7 velocity levels with up to 20 samples per level. The TD50 is a step forward for Roland but it still doesn't sound like enough samples to me. I can hear obvious retitive samples...

    That is what I was thinking too. The TD25 in the example us probably 2mb of samples per drum. Ez drummer may be 50mb....

    What is even more amazing is that drum mix on the module from NAMM is an almost flat recording of the drums in the room. It is an excellent sounding room with well tuned ,well played drums. This is not always the case with module or VST samples....

  • I would start at 50 hz to 20 k and also see what the variation of those frequencies are. Next is Spl. Even so,my Yamaha DXR 15 would bottom out wh3n turned up very load but my system with sub never dies. A $500 Jbl,EV,or Yamaha speaker will be better than the Simmons amp....

    That's right. Also,files lose some sound quality when converted to youtube so it is nice to add something like this or multi band comp before uploading ....

    It is a 16 input drum module and high quality sound card as well. What module and sound card are you using? The other point is that it doesn't use Midi inside the module so the response may be better than any laptop module combo.

    It is definitely designed for live use but I prefer to not...

    replied to New Pearl Mimic Pro Module !!
    This has been the best experience of any drum module thread. It is the first time we have had an actual programmer to discuss things with and the end result is the most forward moving drum module ever produced. I think the complaints may be almost with a sense of humor about knowing the size of the...

    replied to New edrum module (ATV aD5)
    The digital snare and ride pads are nice in the TD50. The modeling is a sound that I don't care for. I did notice the Jarrah floor toms in the TD50 machine gun more than all the floor toms in the AD5. The Jarrah rack toms were OK.

    I prefer a bit bigger sound than the stock AD5 but the...

    I think you are getting an extreme view of what a bit of exciter might be doing. Have you made a video and converted it to youtube? I always add some mastering plug in just to get the sound back to what it was on the module. Note in the user feedback that someone said it is easy to over use this effect....

    If they did that it was probably to offset the youtube audio conversion. All it would do is slightly brighten the sound,which has no impact on the realism of the performance of sample layers. If anything,it would emphasize any machine ginning if it were present....

  • This may sound obvious,but have you experimented with different crossover frequencies and just turning up your top louder? Kabonfaiba's advice of getting a Yamaha DXR12 would probably be ideal. Have you taken your module to a store to hear different speakers? I did this once and liked Yamaha and QSC...

  • I had a TD50 and sold it. The Mimic pro would be the only module where i would use the built in sounds. Many pro recordings use acoustic drums layered with samples. The Slate company could probably let everyone know what songs have Slate drums as a VST....

    replied to Hunting TD-12 Module - Any Tips?
    The TD50 and Mimic Pro allow separate 1/4 inch cables. The Mimic Pro is the ultimate module if you are willing to spend over $2000. In my experience,the AD5 is excellent as well for less money,but you cannot edit the internal sounds,just change samples. The AD5 build quality is very good and the multicable...
