  • BWaj,



    See my reply to Moslon, above. You both experienced similar results of which I'm thankful for the information. As I noted to Moson, I'll probably give this a try with an L80 ride, just out of scientific curiosity. Honestly though, without a lot of signal cleanup after...

  • Molson,



    You and BWaj both noted the problem of additional vibrations with a ride. I can see how that would be a huge problem, because when reading as a traditional trigger, all those extra vibrations are essentially spurious data that must be filtered. I'd think you'd need...

  • Alan,

    Oops. I didn't notice how old the thread is and that the OP hasn't been back. Thanks for the heads up....

  • Adding to BarT's comments. The suggestions BarT made are a great starting point. If the hi-hat still doesn't cut through, try two more things. First, make sure the hi-hat instrument pitches are as close to the original sample pitches as possible. Meaning, avoid large increases and decreases in pitch;...

    Gui Sepultura,



    I understand what you are saying, but you missed the core idea of my posts. I'm fine with e-drum companies offering different price levels of gear, but differentiating these by pad sizes is, in my opinion, a significantly flawed methodology. It doesn't cost...

    replied to ATV EXS (new Edrum/modul)
    I'm disappointed to see ATV headed in this direction. The e-drum world doesn't need more small, toy-like cymbals. And, on the smallest kit (EXS-3), they've fallen even more into generic e-drum territory, with all 10 inch drum sizes and small cymbals too. Very uninspiring....

    BWaj and Molson,

    Thanks for the videos on various "quiet" cymbals (Agean R, Zildjian Gen16, Zildjian L80, and Sabian FRX). To my ears, the Agean R and Sabian FRX cymbals are the nicest sounding, with medium volume and traditional sounds that seem like they would work fine with...

    So, the G9 has 2 GB for preset samples and 2 GB for user samples. That's disappointing. You might bring in one or two (or maybe three) VST style kits into 2 GB, but it's going to be a very tight fit. In the Quick Start Guide, I counted 9 preset kits and one user kit. You can see them in the following...

    General comment to Everyone,

    After watching the GEWA Quick Start Guide (18 videos, see link in my post above), the G9 module seems like a a ramped-up Roland module. Functionally, it's somewhere between a TD-30 and a TD-50. The G9 doesn't have the sequencer and pad patterns of the TD-30...

    Chris K,

    Are you sure the preset sample memory is reserved and not available to users? I watched the GEWA Quick Start video series, 18 videos that go through most aspects of every screen in the G9. You can find this video series here:

    You're right about the lack of high pitched overtones. That's what I like about L80s over the Gens. The L80s sound more like regular acoustic cymbals, but they are much, much quieter. I've heard L80s used acoustically at small restaurant gigs and the cymbals sound great...

    Kabonfaiba,

    Thanks. One thing I like about your rack is, unlike Roland racks, your rack stands without the need for side bars. You can have side bars on one or both side, or no side bars at all. The solves my hi-hat stand placement problem. Thanks again for the background on your rack....

    BWaj,

    Have you ever used L80s with your setup? To my ear, the L80s sound monumentally better than their Gen 16 counterparts, and the L80s feel really nice under sticks. No module, which is another benefit - less to muck around with. However, the L80s are very quiet so I'm wondering how...

    replied to Kick beater for 10" mesh....?
    I've tried a number of beaterless solutions and none of them feel like a traditional pedal. If you use a full range of pedal motion and beater rebound, it makes a huge difference. Also, switching between acoustic and electronic drums, it's preferable for the bass drum pedal to feel as natural and...

    replied to I'd like to talk about Hi-Hats!
    skhan007,

    I don't have the ATV hats and module, but your issue almost sounds like a software bug - exceeding the maximum close value and consequently the software defaults (wraps around or treats outlying values) as the open sound. Just a WAG hypothesis. WAG = Wild Assed Guess. I may...

    Honest question. What do curved vertical rack bars provide? Do they serve any purpose or are they simply aesthetic?...

    Yamaha does indeed make solid, flexible, and very reliable hardware. The problem with Yamaha's hex rack concept is nobody else embraced it. Maybe Yamaha patented it? At any rate, if you want extra hex tubes and parts, Yamaha is the only supplier for that system. It's nice to be able to mix and match...

    I know this can get tricky and expensive quickly. On a very small scale, I sourced manufacturers for a project, and many times I could not meet the minimum order requirements. Or, if I did meet the minimum order requirements, the cost per part was far too high. I needed to order in much higher quantities...

    Blades,



    This is pretty much my thinking. Plus, the technology in modules needs to be more standardized. Design the module using generally available computing technology and have it built by a large-scale manufacturer, to reduce cost. Seemingly, building the module from...

    replied to What drum rack are you guys using?
    This is where I ended up with both my acoustic and electronic drums. I use individual stands for everything. The stands let me scale up and down, easily, as needed. I don't worry about surfaces that are not flat and cause racks to be uneven, which is pretty much every live venue. And, stands let...
