  • Perhaps a little off topic, but I was just watching Dave Weckl and realized the huge expressive discrepancy between acoustic hi-hats and electronic hi-hats. Weckl plays strokes on the under side of the hats to achieve the classic Max Roach "Mr. Hi-hat" sound. I'll find a good version of Mr....

  • Agreed. This kind of stuff demonstrates just how far behind the electronic drum industry from user expectations. I was shocked when Roland released a 14 inch snare drum yet left all the other drum and cymbal sizes incorrect. They obviously understand that drummers want real sizes, but they're still...

  • This customer now has two Strike modules - an initial module and a warranty replacement module. Both modules failed. The first module lacked acceptable output level on the headphone and main outputs. The second module also failed and reveals a potential all-or-nothing failure point: "SD card read...

    replied to New realistic cymbals from Jobeky
    The hats cannot be any more functional than the module allows them to be. That said, those Jobeky hats seem to trigger well, but where they utterly fail is when the drummer demonstrates their acoustic noise. They are very loud acoustically, which makes them a no-go for noise-sensitive environments...

  • I watched both of your videos, and I tried to clean up the "All Kit Sounds" audio using audio editing software. Unfortunately, there is too much noise relative to the drum sounds and thus, even after analyzing several noise profiles, applying noise filters accordingly, and boosting the remaining...

    replied to Any News On The 2Box Drumit Three?
    Yes, but unfortunately they don't demonstrate critical triggering components, such as hi-hat, three-zone ride, etc. They only show head triggering, which is somewhat cheating because most modules support the head portion of pads from different vendors. It's different hi-hats - each vendor uses different...

    Thought I'd share this video with anyone interested. It's Todd Sucherman talking about sounds and dynamics, kit setup, and technique. Note that Todd places his ride cymbal a little higher and further away from himself than is comfortable, and he discusses why and how he may change this in future....

  • The module sounds great and is the main draw. To the best of my knowledge, there isn't much market for 2Box drum and cymbal pads, so I'd just accept that as a loss and use the module. If you can sell the pads, okay, but personally, resale value of the pads, with or without the 2Box module, would not...

  • Though you and I have disagreed in the past, I'm fairly certain we will agree here: TD-50 is a children's toy when compared to Mimic Pro. The Mimic Pro sounds better. Not just a little better. Way better! Mimic Pro offers more flexibility. Unlike the TD-50, Mimic Pro is basically a VST instrument in...

  • violaole,

    I'm short on time so this is a quick answer about using your TD-12 to trigger your DrumIt Five through MIDI. Yes, you connect MIDI Out from the TD-12 to MIDI In of the 2Box. However, you'll need to make MIDI channel, note number, and controller number assignments on the 2Box module...

    replied to Ride cymbal position
    You are welcome. I hope the video gives you some ideas, despite the fact it's not specifically about positioning a ride cymbal. As you work on your grips, you'll find you end up positioning the ride cymbal to match your grips and technique, and that's what I hope comes across in my video. I put a...

  • As Soultone noted, I'm not in America. Prices for V-Drums go way up if you're not in America. Double what you paid for your TD-50KV and that's in the ballpark of what I paid for my TD-30KV a number of years back....

    It may seem I'm picking on you by replying to all your posts, but truly I'm not. You're just bringing up interesting comments!

    Except by actually measuring it yourself, out front in an actual performance situation, there is no way of knowing which active speaker is louder, especially with...

    bcomer,

    I shared some pictures with you above, but continuing the theme "a picture is worth a thousand words", here is a video I made that will help you with your grip and ride cymbal position. I made this video for another forum member, but I think it will help you. The video...

    replied to Ride cymbal position
    bcomer,

    There are a lot of ways to play a ride cymbal. Generally, as your technique improves and as you learn more techniques, you'll find you can get many sounds from a single ride cymbal and thus you'll want full access to the entire playing surface of the cymbal. Sadly, electronic cymbals...

  • Not to take away from your creativity and fine drumming, but I don't see why this pattern cannot be played with a single hi-hat. I tried following the foot lifts needed and they are feasible with a single hi-hat pedal and single pair of hats. Ditto for the subdivisions between lifts; they all fit easily...
