    replied to Musikmesse 2017 New Products?
    My take is this; any new products that are announced this April won't be available till at least 1 year later, minimum!

    Products that have already been announced at a previous NAMM/Musikmesse are closer to fruition and are actually viable products to buy.

    So even if 2box wants...

  • I've done some research for you but it's hard to say what's going to work best. i.e. give you the least gain loss.

    The outputs of 2box are unbalanced, the inputs on the ZLX 15P are balanced, and you'll want to use only 1 input to plug in.

    You could do TS to TS cable, output...

  • It was the 2nd sentence mate.

    Anyway more suggestions that don't break the bank; EV ZLX 15P and RCF ART 315 A MK III

    I need to find time to update my spreadsheet. ...

  • Yes those are perfectly adequate alternatives to a DA200. I know the logical temptation to pick something labeled as a drum amp but it's really just a label and nothing more. Any full range speaker will do.

    The only Mackie SRM450 I would recommend is the SRM450v1, back when RCF made them...

    replied to Lap Top size?
    I would shop by the CPU model first when deciding on what is fit for purpose, shape everything else round that. Personally I would just avoid any energy saving models (xxxxU) and instead pick workstations with higher power CPUs (xxxxHQ) to be safe. For a gigging laptop anyway, I would want reliability...

    replied to New Pearl Mimic Pro Module !!




    I'm moving towards performing live with an ekit instead of an akit. Don't want to divert funds that could have gone on a module towards a laptop to achieve that as my gaming PC currently takes the place of a VST host. It's not even about the technicality involved since...

  • Sounds like a suitable monitor for yourself and band rehearsal. Probably won't give you much in the way of kick feel, unless you put by a wall and boost the lows. But it would be perfect upgrade path if you were planning to add a 15" sub later on....

  • The answer is... frequency response is not conclusive enough on it's own to make any kind of judgement really lol. By itself for example I can pick a full range speaker that responds at 20Hz and a subwoofer that only goes down to 44Hz, yet the subwoofer is clearly a different beast, and manufacturers...

    They did it for Redbox too, very good on Pearl for that. After all it's a computer inside, not *Artware* - we're not stupid here.

    replied to Triggera d14 and sloppy dynamics
    Damn I don't want to read things like this about products I'm going to buy!

    I suggest you contact Triggera directly and see what they have to say, apparently their customer service is excellent.

    You're just posting questions to strangers here, but by all means please update...

    Absolutely, this has pretty much set the benchmark as far as good threads go imo.

    It's been a great journey; a story of discovery, surprise, understanding, ideas and theories, meaningful growth, feedback and response, all the ingredients... and we're still at the beginning really, the fun...

    replied to Official TD-50 Discussion Thread
    Sure, I could interpret "correct" to mean "flat" although I would gather that's boring to most, it would be for me as well. Therefore, what I would really mean by "correct" is balanced.

    I.e. nothing is gated or distorted by over hyping the highs or lows to...

    A 25min well produced video with our favourite vdrum stars! Helps everyone really, including me, because it managed to convince me that a TD-50 is not okay for me lol.

    What I heard was pristine samples getting distorted and gnawed into a brickwall. It's clear to me, all those controls are...

  • I think you should focus on just getting the best top you can afford.

    1) Wouldn't cure your mids problem

    2) Is not as simple as using smaller woofers, but definitely try other brands.

    3) Most line arrays are 2-ways anyway (except for VERTUS CLA system) and they...

    You'll be okay saying that on this forum probably, but I wouldn't take that to any audiophile forums or you'll get scolded lol....

    replied to New edrum module (ATV aD5)
    Cheers Angr77!

    You know what it's like making videos of anything, that 1m43s of footage is made from about 10 mins of tape lol.

    It's 100% true what they say about when you get good trigger + great sounds breeds spontanous playing and enjoyment to the point whereby I entirely...

    It's a good spot and I'm glad the SSD5 team have included some percussion. It's important to recognise they are making a drum module library as well.

    I guarantee every review site / music magazine would have slated that as a con otherwise.

    So is this close to aD5 in terms of trigger performance?

    This is my untouched Roland CY-15R (except some 303 protectant)...

    replied to Question for TD 50 owners
    I felt a little put on the spot with my last post because I know Megadrum isn't well publicized around here.

    Also I don't even believe my own hyperbole sometimes, so I've came back with some evidence.



    Sorry for the grainy image, it's bedroom lighting and...

    replied to Question for TD 50 owners
    FYI I've also never had to mod my CY15R with my Megadrum, it's all about those settings I tell you!

    Compared with a real acoustic, I only have to hit on the tip, where as on a acoustic ride, I have to shoulder the crap out of it, to get the distinct tone I desire (tones like any VST grade...
