    skhan007,

    I agree with Peter Warren that triggering VST libraries on a computer provides the best sounds and most flexibility for recording. Still, Mimic Pro and DrumIt Three have reasonable sounds for recording and these modules have the individual outputs and MIDI I/O you'll need, too....

    skhan007,

    aD5 versus TD-25.
    Where the YouTube chap and the shop salesperson are steering you somewhat incorrectly is the following. The pre-processed sounds of the TD-25 may sound okay on their own, but they stick out in a track. The TD-25's machine gunning and synthetic sounding...

  • A few notably missing pads / cymbals in the DrumIt Three compatibility list:

    Roland PD-128 (missing)
    Roland VH-13 (missing)
    Roland BT-1 (listed as piezo only support, but BT-1 has piezo and switch)

    I'm assuming the PD-128 and VH-13 can be dialed in with the DrumIt...

  • It's such great news that DrumIt Three is released! Yay! Finally, a module with top-flight sound, features, and construction at a low-to-mid-flight price! If DrumIt Three lives up to its promises, in my opinion, it will be the mid-range module that sets the bar.

    However, it's somewhat...

    M-R,

    Thanks for your kind words.



    In theory, yes, you can just swap the DrumIt Three in place of your TD-25. I say "in theory" because you'll need to configure pad and cymbal settings in the DrumIt Three. If you're using all Roland pads and cymbals...

    Chris K and Espen,

    Got it. Stereo samples. Thanks! And yes, I understand what Chris is saying about the 2Box round robin algorithm. 2Box does not use separate windows of samples at each velocity layer. Instead, they choose (pseudo-randomly) from layers below and above, so in this sense...

    Chris K,



    Yes, I agree. I still hear machine gunning in the aD5. On some kits it is masked better than others. If you choose the right kit, the aD5 can work very well in a track. I've heard demos posted by members here (not commercial demos, our own member demos) where...

    skhan007,

    Sometimes my posts get a bit long. Sorry about that!

    When I bought my electronic kit, the market was simpler. 2Box was in the market, but largely the choices were Roland and Yamaha. Roland and Yamaha were falling behind (technologically) as I was buying, but they've...

    replied to Any News On The 2Box Drumit Three?
    I agree that Randy Black kit demo is underwhelming. Fortunately, I've heard what 2Box can do with other kits, so I'm not that worried about one bad sounding kit. I'm surprised I don't know the following, but truth be told I don't! Are 2Box samples mono, stereo, or multi-channel? Is the channel count...

    Add me to the list of those who say "no" to the TD-25 module. Apart from the points Electrodrummer made (all of which I agree with), the build quality of the TD-25 is concerning. The knobs, switches, and connectors are all light and flimsy, and can break easily. And, the all-plastic case...

    This is (essentially) what I thought after looking at the Medeli YoDrum offering. There are already plenty of toy-like electronic drum offerings available from multiple manufacturers, so it's difficult to get exited about yet another one....

    Answers to your questions.

    skhan007,

    Just read your further comments. Seriously, check out the 2Box DrumIt Three. DrumIt Three is priced less than TD-25. Not only are the DrumIt Three sounds lightyears better and more natural than the TD-25, with the DrumIt Three you get a full array of individual inputs and outputs:...

    Myself, I would not choose the TD-11 or the TD-25.

    The biggest problem with the TD-11 is it lacks clean, acoustic-sounding kits. All the kits are compressed and processed with effects, and this processing is built into the base sounds. Consequently, the sounds stick out, horribly, wherever...

    I think the most significant questions are: how much time do you want to spend drumming, how serious a drummer do you wish to become, and what is your budget? For example, as you advance in your drumming, it won't be long before you notice the limitations of the TD-11. You can already work on basic...

    I guess I look at this differently. Kits like this Medeli are what kept me away from electronic drums for multiple decades. Yes, there are lots of features, but the lack of playability and musicality make these kits a wash. All the design goes into producing a product (with certain buzz words and buzz...

    Maranares,



    Any grip, if performed incorrectly, may cause problems for the body. In the case of French grip, when performed correctly, the fulcrum is relaxed. The impact (you labelled this kinetic energy from the rebounds) does not travel into the hands because just before...

    Maranares,



    I watched your video. It seems you're using a modified version of German grip, which is fine, and you're doing this naturally. The problem I've always had with German grip is it reduces finger control due to the fingers being oriented in a way that propels the...

    I watched the videos and looked through the web site. YoDrum has all the marks of previous Medeli e-drum offerings, which is to say the kit seems more like a toy than a serious musical instrument. Yes, there is the large storage capacity (63 GB) and smart phone integration, but the pads, cymbals,...
