  • DDrum ain't bad, but IMO (and in my sound aesthetics) if you want good acoustic-like drum sounds with a flexible brain and better sample import than the Ddrum 4, the DTXtreme is yours. Good all-round module with sounds you can edit till your parents/significant other has you institutionalized, go with...

  • Well, yes and no. I am computer-centric for some tasks, those tasks I know a computer can carry out reliably, but I do wonder if we're not placing too much emphasis on it, developing stronger and stronger plug-ins while hardware development is nowhere near keeping up.
    No, rackmounting standard

  • The more I think about your theories about gear becoming more and more software-based, I become more and more skeptical. Is it really a good thing? For any virtual clone of a hardware box you'd theoretically need not only a stable OS (And when it comes to that IMO there is only one option: OS X. Windows...

    A nice one is also placing a bell on top of a crash, makes a nice short trashy sound with some really weird overtones.

  • One of the e-drum makers did get it right, that was Simmons 15 years ago with the SDX. Horrendously expensive, but still, none of today's systems come even remotely close to the SDX's features, and sound quality. The sample quality was fantastic, it was more user-friendly than any of today's modules,...

    That's what I mean with half-assed. Why does Roland even bother to make a product which according to it's technical specs is outdated by close to 15 years? An interface of this kind without a MIDI in is so baldy planned, it's not funny. If you look at everything Roland introduced at NAMM, you can t...

    Both that souped-up practice pad and the TMC-1 strike me as half-assed, throwing crumbs to the starving masses. If Roland wanted to, they could have given the TMC-1 12 dual-trigger inputs. 6, and I have the impression that they are single-trigger inputs, is a complete joke. Come on, Roland, what planet...

    New Roland products

    Well, Roland has the NAMM press release up, and I must say, I'm seriously underwhelmed. The V-Session is now available in 3 colours (red, purple and white), there's a drum-to-midi interface called the TMC-6 (6 trigger inputs), and a practice pad called the RMP-1 Rhythm Coach, which is an 8" mesh head...

    Whenever the clueless people at the Grammys aren't sure how to categorize a band, they'll place them in the Metal category. See Jethro Tull in the late '80s. We should be glad. Normally they ignore groups like Tool... Stu (P.S. I'm not a Tool fan, I like exactly one song...)...

    I typically use splashes inside chinas, with the splash always being 4" smaller than the china. That combination seems to work best.

  • I prefer the DTXtreme module to the TD-10 and TD-8, also prefer the feel of the Yamaha tom and snare pads over the Roland pads, but prefer the feel of the Roland V-Cymbals over the Yammies. Doesn't really matter though, since I've gone back to triggering acoustics, if using electronic sounds at all...

    I live not too far from Springfield, MA, where Staind come from. Now, I see why they feel the need to be all dark and gloomy (ain't surprising when you've seen that place), but hey, dude, your girlfriend left you 3 CDs ago, get over it, man...
