    replied to MIDI mapping SSD4
    I'm looking into it.

    The MIDI notes are what come supplied with the kit preset, you can move them in the kit mapping, or in the map converter.

    MIDI CC is also what is only supplied with the kit preset. You can move but not create new CC notes. Your module must output separate...

  • If they are active monitors (self contained amplifiers), and running them within limits (no consistent clipping beyond 0db gain) then you are simply using them as intended by the manufacturer.

    Now whose to say what the lifetime of that monitor will be lol? My LED light bulbs are supposed...

    I say, I wish I'd spent more time VST drumming with SSD4 earlier on during the Mimic development, because I'm finding answers to a few questions I had. It's taken many hours of setup and learning but I'm getting there.

    SSD4 does have hihat transmuting, and it works exactly the same as EZDrummer....

    replied to New Alesis Strike Pro
    I'm hoping at the moment that the 200mb limit is isolated to the strike editor.

    If there is a strong enough conviction, these things can be hacked, unless the limit is hard-coded into firmware, then chances would be unfavourable.

    I'm being positive at the moment....

    I think what you're requesting could be done in couple ways, for example;

    1) MIDI to module function, i.e. trigger to start / stop metronome.
    2) Bind multiple functions off a trigger, including the ability to trigger a one shot WAV.
    3) Probably need a start WAV offset (+/- milliseconds)...

    Yes I was concerned early on that SSD5 kits would mostly be reincarnations of the same "flavour", i.e. lots of drums have this heavy attack / processed sound about them, quite evident on the ghost notes. Early days though, everything looks to be triggering very well.

    By the way,...

    I think buying the Strike module alone definitely has the potential of being a 2box 1.5.

    If only those memory limits where higher, hopefully we'll find an SDHC card inside.

    Is that debugging firmware on the module right now? I kinda like the fact you can see the polyphony voices, CPU load, temp, etc.

    Really exciting times right now.

  • Broadly speaking, most brands are building studio monitors at similar quality, depending on the price segment and market they are aiming for.

    You have KRK, Yamaha, JBL, Adam, Genelec - some brands tend to be a little more expensive than others though. Reasons why the KRK are so popular...

  • Well the idea in getting studio monitors, is that you are buying higher quality drivers than cheaper "2.1 PC speakers" in the first place, and secondly you get a pair that has a high enough RMS wattage that you do not have to run them at 100% to get acceptable volume, further extending their...

    Bugger!

    That pretty much makes my centre mounted piezos a wasted investment. Just hot spots with no redeeming use.

    I presume SSD5 will have snare edge samples like SSD4... will they be excluded from the Mimic Pro? Or could we still access them, through means of another external...

  • Yes, that will do nicely for a 2.1 studio monitor setup capable of vdrum amp duty.

    L + R out of your module, into the sub, then L + R out to the satellites, simple!

    The Rokit 5's are actually one of the darkest sounding monitors out there, so running a high pass on them (switch...

    I doubt an ex-Roland company would have patent issues.

    New e-cymbals are always welcome!

    Good to hear them using module sound in the promo too. Nice samples, even if not nearly enough of them... woes of the previous gen.

    The only percussion I need on the Mimic Pro would be a decent cowbell, and a tambourine (that I can bind with hi-hat chicks) I think such things should exist as base content or the module would feel incomplete, but SSD4 was severely lacking too, so I don't have high hopes for SSD5.

    Nonetheless,...

    When you do, I'm sure for some of the guys around here, it'll be like releasing the module all over again!

    Not only for Pearl, but I know the guys at SDSE will pick up plenty more sales as well - I know this, because I'll be one of them. ...

    Highly HIGHLY impressed with the final design!

    Reminds me of RED cameras, rugged, chunky, road ready and looks expensive.

    On a side note, it's been fantastic to watch this new product develop and grow in front of our eyes. I really hope Pearl found our discussions useful....

    Really great news about the Mimic Pro obviously.

    Not a care in the slightest about the bad news. (where is the real bad news?)

    Cymbals are the most horrible things about acoustic drums for me, (never played one I actually liked the sound of either) so I'll take rubber over...

  • If you really want to maximize your budget I would stear clear of companies like Bose - you'll just be paying extra for badge and its compact design. Get a large cab instead with plenty of bottom end.

    These are in your budget:
    • Electro-Voice ZLX-15P
    • Alto Truesonic TS 215
    • RCF ART 315-A
    ...
