  • You've got a 14 inch Jobeky snare so it's likely that velocity is going to trail off more than it does on my 12 inch Diamond snare near the edge. I would really tighten the mesh head as it could be a hot spot problem. But gain and sensitivity go hand in hand. There's nothing wrong with having low high...

    replied to Throne thumpers - Gimmicky or valuable?
    This is the same phenomenon you get with subwoofers, i.e. the deeper the frequency the more perceived lag. I don't know the science behind why this occurs but it's definitely real human hearing phenomenon. There is a trade off behind setting the low pass too low, which feels better and more defined,...

    replied to converted bass drum dampening
    in DIY
    The larger the mesh head the increased amount of elasticity. It's going to be a massive trampoline without any sort of dampening from the increased the surface area. But you can't have loose mesh heads over your trigger. Drum-tec and ATV have got the right design, and Roland has achieved the same balance...

    I thought the whole reason Roland used a USB cable was for 5V power / the 4th data pin (because there is no 1/4 size TRRS jack in existence)

    The whole digital bit I don't know, but there is a chipset inside the CY-18DR, hence the firmware button. It's still a collection of piezos in there...

    I'm worrying that you couldn't get on with 2box with SDX sounds - the supposed pinnacle of drumming nirvana.

    No idea how the previous owner built them, but I think I know what could be wrong.

    I was playing around only last night with some presets I don't normally...

    Just so the idea isn't left in the cold; there is a way to completely eliminate all these problems by getting a Roland FD-9. As long as you are happy to sacrifice a moving hat.

    replied to 2box Speed Light Kit
    Not a surprise to me, if anything, this should have been a massive green light to Pearl once they saw the positive reception of the Mimic to get on and take some of their shells, slap some triggers in them, and market a complete kit in the TD50K to KV range. But then again, as we just discussed; it's...

    replied to CY-5 and EZDrummer 2
    EZD2 hihats play just as well as their SD3 counter parts in my experience but all of them are typically mixed quieter than you would normally have on a module, as they are mastering levels for music not live.

    VST hats also have a much larger dynamic volume between soft and loud notes which...

    replied to 2box Speed Light Kit
    Looks much smarter (in appearance) than what they've done before and good value for what's on offer, especially considering the open source module.

    Why do I keep seeing 1 larger snare and 3 smaller toms on these budget size kits though? Does it really cost that much more just to make the...

  • Roland Octa-Capture. Choice between it or the RME Babyface but I got 25% off the UA-1010 so it was a decision made easier. I actually needed more outputs than the Babyface offered in the end. SD3 indicated Output latency: 1.3 ms Buffer latency: 1.1 ms at 32 samples or about 4 ms tested RTL. The distance...

    replied to purchasing advice in the 4k range
    Option 1 has the most longevity as a standalone ekit. I would probably change the rack for cymbal stands in the future but I really respect the triad piezo tech in ATV pads as the most important quality.

    Not sure how the Xstick bar is going to work on the Mimic. Does it have an algo for...

    So what you're saying is; we need a VH-14!

  • To play devils advocate; I have no problem purchasing a Mimic Pro in the UK, stocks are fine, so distribution is not at fault. What I would say is that I've never seen it in person for the 2 years I've been looking.

    Roland obviously dominates and the corporate culture is rotten to both...

    Well we've had Megadrum.

    But I would agree, the setup process with eDrumin is a game changer that makes the MIDI to VST idea much more accessible. A great little product that will perhaps leapfrog Megadrum in years to come - especially if it came in larger input forms....

  • Basically EZDrummer 2 doesn't have the ability to MIDI learn. Although there is a Roland drum maps available (which take care of most assignments) you cannot remap MIDI notes.

    For your scenario; this won't matter because you'll want to change the MIDI notes on your TD11 anyway, and it will...

    I think the biggest upcoming development won't even come from Roland. Right now it's either the next 2box module or an instrument editor for the Mimic Pro. I can't see anything else on the horizon that's significantly game-changing, unless it's a new module nobody knows about.

  • The i3-4005U is a 2 core low power CPU about 5 years old, you typically won't be able to upgrade the CPU in a laptop. It's not quick and I would recommend a new laptop, but it shouldn't pose any issues for VST triggering unless you are experiencing issues with audio drop outs; a lockup that resumes...

    I don't think it holds a candle to EZDrummer 2 tbh, but seriously; after trying loads of different VSTs over the years, the most important bit hardly anybody talks about is how well they actually...

  • That's a great snippet of news!

    Surely that means Slate completely re-sampled the cymbals though? Not unless he was sitting on bow pings all this time, unused for some reason, for both the Mimic and SSD5.

    Then again, some people have been saying the SSD5 crashes are a bit...
