    Following up on the conversation about Roland's pseudo-modelling approach and v-edit parameters. Yes, I'm another who agrees that most v-edit parameters are simply EQ and effects. The problem I have with this is... and audio engineers will especially appreciate and understand these sentiments... that...

    Yes, but that's totally irreverent to the discussion at hand because Roland V-Drum modules are sample players, just as sample-based VSTi drums libraries are. Roland V-Drum modules DO NOT use mathematical models (physical modelling) to create the core of their drum sounds. The core is samples. This has...

    Chris is talking about the third example in the video, which starts around the 1 minute and 50 second mark. Listen to the first two examples in the video, which both use TD-25 internal kits. These sound electronic and limited in spaciousness and dynamics. Then, listen to the third example, which...

    replied to Roland Corporation Parts Policy
    To be clear about my own experiences buying parts from Roland. Yes, I've purchased, circuit boards, chips, and other electronic part from them. In the past, Roland has been fantastic to deal with (great service and access to any parts I needed) and helped me debug what needed to be replaced or refurbished....

    Thanks. Yes, very good point! Saves a lot of time. Sometimes I do remember to do this (I've got a neutral template kit). However, if I'm editing a preset or, more commonly, grabbing a single drum from a preset to add and edit in a new kit, the "check every parameter" frustration can set in,...

    replied to Roland Corporation Parts Policy
    I wonder if this applies to all Roland companies around the world. I've purchased many internal parts from Roland and have performed the repairs myself. If Roland no longer sells parts, that's definitely a negative for the brand. Every Roland synthesizer I own has been repaired and restored by me, using...

    Hey Alan, it's good to see you posting again! :-)

    Yes, you can turn everything off, but as I'm sure you know, there are multiple levels of EQ, compression, and effects, so one must check them all. With the v-edit parameters (many of which are simply EQ and effect settings under different...

    replied to Official TD-50 Discussion Thread
    This is EXACTLY the problem I experienced with my TD-30, and when I demoed the TD-50, I ran into a similar problem. What I'd like is a single, magic button that disables all effects, pitch adjustments, envelopes, EQ, compressors, v-edit settings, etc., so that what I'm hearing are the raw samples. This...

    replied to Hunting TD-12 Module - Any Tips?
    All the new technology does not embrace harness / snake inputs only. It's inexpensive modules (where manufacturers are trying to cut costs) that use this approach. On mid-priced and flagship modules, the norm is still individual inputs.

    For triggering Superior Drummer 2, myself, I'd still...

    KnipeDrums,

    I hope that's not a new policy from Roland headquarters (Japan) that spreads to all Roland corporations around the world. I've purchased many, many parts from Roland: synthesizer key beds, switches, v-drums parts, knobs and levers, mother boards, and other parts. My TD-30...

    replied to Question for TD 50 owners
    Interesting! Perhaps it is both the cymbal hardware and the module, and perhaps ATV accounted for this in the aD5? What I do know is that with Roland modules, if you tighten the area between the rubber bell and the switch underneath, the bell triggering improves. This is basically what all the "bell...

    replied to Question for TD 50 owners
    neurotic88,

    The CY-18DR seems to be a completely different animal than previous Roland ride cymbals. My experience with all of Roland's previous ride cymbals (CY-13R and CY-15R) is that the bells do not trigger reliably. More than anything, this has to do with the cymbal hardware itself...

  • SlappyDorama,

    Interesting! Hard to tell what is going on by just watching the video. You may have thought of all of these things, but here is a list of things I'd try:

    Use your TD-30 to verify that the VH-11 is working correctly. Do all of these steps with the TD-30 only....

    replied to TD-50KV: Adding Tom #2 @ 10" or 12"?
    How times change! In the anal-retentiveness department, two 10 inch toms up top would drive me crazy, specifically because two same-size toms do not belong together! I realize one can do anything they want, but apart from playability (which is critical to me), another reason I swapped the 2nd rack tom...

    Thanks Chris, for the clarification. I agree that the most wear typically occurs around the center area of the head. As for my own playing, I do play jazz, Latin music, and many other styles, so having a full range of positional textures on toms is very important to me. With Roland's flagship modules...

    Not meaning to take away from your preferences, but you misunderstood what I was saying. I have no problem playing doubles, accurately, dead center of the head. And indeed, on acoustic drums, this is desirable for producing certain textures. Similarly, playing off center, to the left and right, produces...

    replied to Official TD-50 Discussion Thread
    For certain kinds of music, hitting toms dead center of the head is typical and suits the music. However, for many kinds of music, I play all over the tom heads, with sticks, brushes, mallets, and other implements. The expressiveness of playing position is critical for these kinds of music. And indeed,...
