  • You should have just asked: Does the Mimic Pro have an ASIO driver? ...that would make it an audio interface, and the answer to that is no.

    Unfortunate, considering the price of the module, but not the end of the world. MIDI over USB would be nice alternative, but then I'd only use that...

  • Is the manual going to contain an instrument list?

    I'm keen to find out about SSD5 as much as the Mimic Pro really. In particular if we're going to get bow articulations for crash cymbals.

    Following up on the question above; I definitely think fixed hats are important as a...

  • I have noticed a couple of people in Pearl's own community seem to be really toxic regardless of the Mimic Pro, to a point where vdrums looks like a safe haven just for developers to have an actual productive discussion on features, and it'll be with a community vastly more experienced on the subject...

  • I understand what DrStackVanHay is implying now, so here's my conclusion;

    Roland's positional sensing (and sound engine in general) is direct to where you hit on the snare. i.e. what you put in, you get out.

    VST positional sensing uses two concentric circles, and will play...

  • If more samples combat machine gunning, yes it's highly worth it.

    Plus you already have an SSD with plenty of space and quick loading times, what difference will it make to reduce the amount of samples you have? It would be sub-optimal not to use the space provided.

    Picking...

  • I think we're not defining this clearly enough.

    Roland owns the patent on how to work out position data by a algorithm as far as I'm aware.

    VSTs supporting positional sensing is entirely up to them.

    Roland has to output CC MIDI before VSTs could support it. It's...

    replied to Double strokes with KT-10
    This thread is me a couple of years ago, don't feel bad.

    Interestingly, I would say ONLY heel toe works for doubles on the KT-10, heel up doubles (or any other way) is virtually impossible - unless one's idea is to absolutely kick the hell out of the beater, using up tonnes of energy,...

  • Ugh I hate the sound of any ghost notes on "electronic" kits because of the nature of the samples. If I wanted to make a dance kit on the Mimic Pro I would make use of the layering on an existing kit and draw a curve that mixes in the samples at the higher velocities.

    Just thinking...

    replied to Td 25 module vs Megadrum module?
    Yep! I would fully recommend the TD25 for you. I've used it a lot, the controls are very intuitive.

    Megadrum is a hobby grade drum module, and so part of this conversation was really about figuring out what your comfortable with.

    replied to Td 25 module vs Megadrum module?
    Potentiometers, they add resistance to the signal, but pots are variable so you can find the right amount. I have fitted in-line resistors to some of my inputs inside my megadrum because I wasn't able to disassemble my drums (I think certain bits are glued). I have them on a few of my toms to bring...

    replied to Td 25 module vs Megadrum module?
    Better triggering is all in the settings, so the potential is equal for both Megadrum and a TD-25.

    I've got centre mounted piezos on my Diamond drums and that works fine with positional sensing on the snare too.

    The only negatives I can speak of is making sure you have stable...

  • Well how would you define a VST library? To me it's a collection of recorded instruments, in an acoustic space, from multiple microphones, with multiple velocity layers.

    To my recollection; the current plan is to have the ability to build a new instrument out of multiple velocity layers...

  • Exactly!

    I've been saying this before now, but things are just too complicated for one team to be all encompassing on every aspect that goes into a drum module. Partnering with VST producers is the way forward.

    It was a shame when it first happened a while ago (on a module...

  • Just to say, it's also amazing if you've specifically built / bought your equipment for the purpose of triggering VSTs

    As for software not being as good as the module... I would make the distinction and say; the integration of trigger device, sample library, and midi interpretation will...

  • They also make an FD-9 now.
    Gives me the impression they intend to make an FD-10 one day.

    replied to "machine gun" effect: deep dive
    I play the TD-25K from time to time at my place of work. Of course it doesn't hold a candle to my own ekit but it's incredibly nice just to sit at it, and just play, and get the response I'm looking for.

    What I would say is you need to spend some hours going through all the trigger settings...

  • I should clarify just in case, I can feel the cloud of shun over my head lol. Of course I don't think Roland makes irrelevant products. Those SPD are most likely brilliant for what they are. I'm especially impressed by the coding aspect of the wav pad. But I will be speaking from the point of view of...

  • A lot of VST's usually only have one or the other in my experience. However most have also mapped MIDI in a logical way that if you switch to a kit that doesn't use rim click they use the rim shot sample in it's place, and vice versa - if all 3 aren't included.

    BFD3 does have all 3 articulations...

  • Well my prediction was kinda close, 4 irreverent products instead of 3 lol.

    All seriousness, I think Roland should be making the distinction between drums and percussion clear when they do this again in the future.

    Onwards we go!
