    Thanks all! jpsquared, it's a TD9. I just use the default vdrums kit but I customised most of it instead of creating a user kit. I changed the toms to custom birch I think, and I changed the ride cymbal and tuned it lower to give it more of a defined ping. I think I changed the bass drum as well...

    That's a good idea bobhol. Yes it is unreliable. I found today that since increasing the threshold it's triggering everytime now which is good. But I can't find a threshold setting where the rimshot doesn't still occasionally trigger unintentionally. I'm finding around 106/107 is about the best I can...

    Thanks bobhol and JmanWord. Most helpful replies and I've got the rimclick working again!

    Yes I should have read the manual, so thank you for pointing out about Xstick specific instruments, I wasn't aware of that. I've read it now and the instrument list from page 67. I see that Xstick...

    TD9 Xstick stopped working

    Hi all. Yesterday the Xstick worked fine and today it seems to have stopped altogether. I bought this TD9 kit a year ago and it's been flawless apart from a Xstick issue where it sometimes won't trigger and I'll get silence, or the main rimshot sound will trigger instead.

    During recording...

    I practised some trad grip today. Was ok but maybe my grip isn't quite right because I start to get pain kind of on the inside of the bottom of my thumb. :/

    By the way, I've replaced the video with a cleaner version.

    Thanks chaps!

    alensiljak, haha yeah, I know what you mean about the matched grip. I used to play traditional many years ago, I should probably consider revisiting it.

    Thanks Chris. It was one of the snares on my TD9 that sounded just right to me for this kind of tune....

    Playing to a funky tune

    Hey all, here's a song (I think it's one of the Roland created playalongs) that I've never heard with drums on so I've created my own drum parts and thrown in a few of my (ever so limited) chops.
    I've got EZ Drummer but in this video it's just stock TD9 sounds. Audio into line-in of Zoom Q3 HD...
