  • I would look into changing the fabrication process for the metal casing; although it may be the most cost-effective way of making it, I don't know what sort of numbers we are talking about in terms of units returned.

    Looking at my metal housed Roland Octa-capture - how about countersunk...

    You didn't say what module you are using, but if it's intelligently rejecting airborne vibrations that are fluctuating randomly, that fits the culprit for dropping your real hits at the same time if the noise rejection system is overloaded.

    You might have to raise thresholds for every mesh...

    That's great music LaYoOne, I love non standard chord progression in general.

    The drum sounds the best a module has ever done really, amazing mix, although I wouldn't go so far as saying it's Toontrack levels of "mix ready" from the MP. It's about 90% there.

    I don't...

  • The best way to answer that would be to take CC out of the equation and let your TD-50 handle the triggering. i.e. disable CC1 and CC4, then assign the footspash, chick, all the openness notes, etc. manually.

    That way, it should play just the same as the TD-50 triggers it's native samples....

  • I stand corrected!

    If only I'd put my headphones on when I listened to that clip last night instead of trying to make do, at a quieter volume (people sleeping).

    Basically, I've gotten so used to cheating on my ekit; having my snare rim zone as cross-stick, unless I strike it...

  • Well I see no reason, not play with the room mics at 100% all the time lol. Sounds too good.

    Great work Blades!

    Noticed the missed snare hit at 4:45. Perhaps hitting it with too much vigour cause an overload or something and MP rejected the signal? It happened in one of the...

  • Great descriptions; I would be the 3rd option of raw, since I already have primary descriptors for the other two scenarios. The first example I would call "dry" or "direct", and the second example I would call "ambient", and the third option would be my favourite ;-)...

    The other half was his own music, including an amazing 15 minute long mash up of famous songs....

    Wow, tell us what you really think BWaj lol.

    I always like reading the exaggeration, but I think there also comes a point where it can border into the irrational. You have some concerns over a defective sound BWaj, which we can actually take some practical action to address. I suggest recording...

    Somebody finally decided to replicate Roland's most extreme modelling parameters in reality. Excellent! ...now sample it.

  • This was unexpected! Thanks for taking one for the team, vault_108.

    It does say right on the SSD label: "Warranty void if label removed or case opened" which is obviously a fallacy since you can't read that until the case is opened lol.

    You may run into problems if...

    I'm not sure about this, but I'd like to help; If the drum tuning is anything like SSD4, then it will be tuning for each microphone independently, so if it's 3 microphones per tom, then all 3 mics need tuning.

    I definitely think that the SSD4 method should be overhauled if it exists on...

  • I remember Craig moved onto the subject of drum sounds being reduced in the TD-50 (from the TD-30) and his answer to that was Roland wanted users to really take the layering idea on-board in such a way that 400 becomes 800, once you combine that with the editing features and the layer features together....

  • Went to see Craig Blundell play a TD-50 at my local music shop tonight. He's a really great guy, drummer, teacher, a black belt in time signatures, progressive rock, what he always wanted to play etc. All hooked up to a 2.1 FBT Promaxx 14a system with a FBT bandpass sub, mixed properly, no excuses here...

    Yes, why else would pearl upgrade the SSD spec before release, yet have the current library only take up a fraction of the space.

    Btw, just took a look at my Tama hi hat stand to check the tilt mechanism. I remember removing it on day 1 as I spotted the potential issues with the sensor...

    Could they be indentations from spot welds? The variation suggests it was done by hand.

    Slightly off-topic but I'm always going around in circles with these line array PA systems.

    Does anybody here actually use one as a solo drum amp? (not as a monitor)

    The bulk and weight savings always look so enticing, yet they are always bested in comparisons with classic...

  • That's the best snare of the Indie Folk EZX btw (714 Slingerland Artist), other snares don't have the brightness and sound rather dull and lacking in crack. I thought that was interesting how much good snares and kicks make or break a VST kit for me, but I hear the same on the Mimic Pro as well -...

  • Have you guys seen the Tuning algorithm video?



    This is just incredible, extraordinary development on Toontracks part... but I'm not just thinking of this simple feature, it's the trend of continuing encroachment on Roland technology with VST samples that interests me. There's...
