    replied to Stick Module
    I've got a little experience with Micro / Stick PCs since I work in the IT field, unfortunately I don't have a very favourable opinion. Mostly it's the fault of Intel Atom, and specifically asking x86 to perform with such low resources, plus they really suck at multitasking, running any version of Windows...

    No worries Tang, I love being quoted this much!

    It usually feels like I'm just posting into the Šther, such is the way of forums.

    I agree with everything you've written so far I just haven't had the time to write back.

    I think what I'm trying to do with the specs...

    replied to What is considered best bang for buck
    Back when I didn't have an ekit; I thought the best bang for buck was the TD15-KV.

    But if I were starting from scratch today... 4pc acoustic shell pack, 4 mesh heads, 3 intriggs, 2 bix, double kick pedal, Roland FD-9, 2xCY-14C, 1xCY13R, 1xCY15R, D14, D11, custom made Diamond drums snare,...

    replied to New Beater Triggers From Triggera
    This seems like a potential buy for me then because of my particular circumstances.

    I've been thinking for a long time now about getting some new double pedals for some a-drums, yet I would really want to have them work with my ekit sometimes too. Having two KT-10s already, I would need...

    Great job finding that out Peter.

    That means the K12.2 is as loud as the Yamaha DXR12.

    Although it's apparently less efficient; using LF 890W RMS vs LF 600W RMS to achieve the same 132dB peak SPL, plus 10 more watts to the HF - I don't think this difference is that important...

    replied to New Beater Triggers From Triggera
    I have 3 short questions.

    1) Is it a piezo or switch in there?

    2) From that answer; how's the sensitivity in comparison to what we have now? - Like piezo based pads: able to run very low thresholds to the point of self triggering - or - like switches: minimum strike force required?...

    replied to New QSC K.2 series speakers
    QSC's idea of a specification is highly suspect next to a lot of other companies; in the way that the listed spec doesn't make any sense, or it isn't listed at all.

    Saying that, these new K.2 speakers look very nice and it's good to see more PAs moving towards the more feature full DSPs...

  • If your choice is between 1 sub or 2 subs, I say buy the 1 more expensive sub and put it in the right place in the room.

    Better to have the best sub which hits deep and full than having two thinner sounding subs, which will probably end up under the tops anyway, and therefore in problematic...

    replied to Thinking of building my own module...
    in DIY
    Megadrum uses STM32F205RCT6 (120Mhz) and earlier STM32F103RCT6 (72Mhz) ARM chips, so that's definitely the right CPU for the triggering part of your project.

    Honestly though, I don't know why you aren't just collaborating with Dmitri to design a Megadrum 2, so you can just focus on the...

  • Quoting because this is my opinion too.

    Microphones are great but they just aren't human ears. Therefore we need a bit of digital processing in the mix down because the 1:1 sample to PA isn't responding like we all expect. It's clear things need to be adapted to account for technology bit...

    replied to Ride cymbal position
    Good question.

    I'm not so good with the drumming theory written in books, but I consider myself an intermediate player nowadays and I know how I best like to learn (if nothing else has changed since being a beginner lol).

    So I'll present my ideas how I'd like to...

    replied to trigger TD-6 sounds using megadrum
    Sounds like a needlessly complex solution to me. Yes, Megadrum can do this, but using it just to expand inputs/compatibility with your existing module is an unusual situation to say the least.

    Have you considered selling your TD-6 and replacing it with a TD-9, TD-12, TD-15, TD-25? All of...

  • Well as soon as that Mimic Pro editor is released and allows multilayer sampled instruments to be made, then it will be -hands down- the greatest module in the world.

    We won't need to mod anything with a larger memory card, not when we have a large chunk of that 128GB SSD to play with,...

    replied to Any News On The 2Box Drumit Three?
    Speaking of the hi-hat modelling, I wonder if we'll have 7 levels this time. Plus I'd also like to know if we'll have transmuting, but I have my doubts.

    The only other problem with the D5 was the issue about the sound quality being affected if any kind of EQ was applied. So hopefully that...

  • I'll be surprised if there isn't any delays. We don't even know yet what form the Mimic Pro will be sold as, i.e. like a standalone audio interface in the box with an adapter?

    Distribution surely won't be the same as something like Roland from a well oiled machine, and I don't hold Pearl...

    replied to Any News On The 2Box Drumit Three?
    I'm weighing up my input strategy as well, should I end up buying this.

    3 cymbals is just not enough and I don't want to transport anything other than 1 module.

    I don't need a 4th tom so that will become my cowbell and split china probably.

    The solution is splitting...

    replied to Any News On The 2Box Drumit Three?
    Huge thumbs up for 2box!

    I gather it's now fully compatible with Roland Hi-hats and 3-zone rides natively. Like I said in the Musikmesse thread; all upcoming modules should be open market. Universal compatibility should be the new norm now, no more trigger discrimination, at least not by...

  • That's not a bad idea!

    Take any regular 22 kick drum, put an intrigg in there and voila; great hybrid bass drum for live performance that moves air and still allows you to have all that triggering greatness, especially if you wanted a nice clicky kick sound on the (PA) top....
