    BFD3 has a tom resonance setting Ericdrumz, could this be what you need?

    I completely agree though, I definitely prefer VST kits with a lot of "liveliness"... is the word you're after?

    Some of Toontrack's kits have this quality down better than others. They tend...

    replied to New edrum module (ATV aD5)
    OMG did our target market finally get noticed?! This is a major development!

    For decades, e-drum manufacturers have been in a rut, making mere practice tools, or machines for EDM producers. At last! Acoustic drum kit simulators for the stage!

    Great store btw, and most of the...

    replied to New Pearl Mimic Pro Module !!
    People are asking about kit loading times, but what about Module booting time?
    The Mimic Pro runs it's own OS as far as I understand. Just wondering what sort of power-on to playing-time can we expect? Or is this something still being optimized going forward.

    replied to 2box Drumit
    This wouldn't be the first time I've heard that 2box has got something new for current year at NAMM or Musikmesse, so I remain doubtful.

    In fact, I'm hopeful that they don't announce anything this time, because my mind is pretty made up about getting the Mimic Pro and more competition is...

    This early SSD5 VST screenshot shows what I think should be our basic Mimic Pro content. We should have SSD4 included at this price.


    But SSD4 Expanions can be separate purchases for the future....

    Yes to the above.

    I previously posted about expanding the sample stacking in the Mimic Pro to be more like the MIDI-nodes feature from Superior Drummer 2.

    Which not only allows multiple articulations to be assigned to a single zone, but controls how they respond and mix with...

    Not surprised at the news, it was simply a matter of time before Pearl did a market review. Shows great confidence to sort out the Europe distribution before launch.

    Better start watching Drum-tec then, they're usually the first with these things!

    Fixed the link in my previous post. The website is: http://www.thesycon.de/eng/latency_check.shtml

    It's a fair tip in the video above, the person is preventing his CPU from throttling down / adjusting the multiplier to a lower power state during idle. You can also disable Speedstep in the...

    The only hardware upgrade suggestion that is correct, is the HDD. You need at least a 7,200RPM drive, but if you can afford it, a SSD will suit you better.

    You shouldn't need a large one, 120GB will do for your OS and VST libraries. Brands Like ADATA, SK Hynix are the best budget SSDs choices...

  • Glad to hear you got your sound input fixed Jman. I really like the work you've done on the TD-50 too, it sounds very good and passable for a live gig.

    As the video went on something irked me though; the kits made with the custom samples don't sound noticeably different from one another....

    Like good marketing, to spread their name with the demographic most likely to buy their products. Just as Steven Slate has already done with his presets for Superior Drummer. I don't think the contribution will be huge, something like a "best of Toontrack" selection for the Mimic Pro.

    replied to 3ply Mesh list
    My Z-ED 3 ply feels more sponge-like, next to the 2-ply version at the same tension and size (12 inch). It's less bouncy in the way one can feel the energy being taken out of the strike.

    I think the 2-ply triggers a little better but it's probably a placebo effect.

    I haven't...

    replied to New ATV drumkit: aDrum
    Looks like 6 or 7 piezos without cones? That could be really good for hotspots and even triggering, however they would have to be running much higher gain to make that idea work. There might be huge problems with crosstalk or gigging next to loud amps.

    The thing I don't understand is why...

    I hope so, but I think I would probably sell my Megadrum shortly after getting the Mimic Pro.

    Ultimately though, regarding PS... it can't just be centre notes or edge notes - or you'd have the same trouble as that chap has on his TD-50 - no - the transition must be smoothed using CC midi...

    I've been wondering whether we'll ever get the Toontrack equivalent of the Mimic Pro, or the BFD3 equivalent module (no, that nfuzed thing doesn't count lol)

    But if Toontrack just partnered with Pearl, things would certainly happen faster.

    It's an ideal scenario really, but...

    I don't get this.

    Surely there can only be one interpretation of a analogue waveform... the algorithm that gives you the least problems is the correct one, and there can be no greater potential than that.

    Are we are taking about the module analysing more than just a peak and...

    Took a little look inside that firmware update.

    The smaller ROMs contain just a single sample, which sounds like a cymbal articulation. The larger ROM contains a variety of percussion samples with multiple velocity layers.

    I really like the snare edge samples in SSD4 Mr Boo,

    I also particularly like the way the engineers have distributed the samples slightly differently from the normal head hit samples; i.e. the slight volume increase near the lower velocities (because trigger response tends to be weaker...
