Re: Multiple Drum Kits in one Rack

I used the Trapkat with DrumRack for a few years when playing out. My approach became more stripped down over time. What I ended up with was a few basic kits with several variations to handle specific songs. In other words, "Kit 1 Main" could be identical to "Kit 2 No Doubt" with the exception of a ...

Which DrumKat? They're still making most of 'em.

Re: Drum Rack for live drumming set

Hello, Stan_T, The way I do it is to have all my samples loaded into a single Drum Rack then build the actual kits with my controller. In other words, program 01 may be a brushes kit, so selecting program 01 on the controller will point each pad to the appropriate brushes samples Can you discribe a...

Re: Best Loop Pedal with Looper

I'm using a Firestudio 26x26 with e-drums on a PC and I have no appreciable issues with latency. I realize that's different, but there are obviously people looping with version 7. It might help to post your Live audio settings.

I'm waiting for the details on this sum'bich.

There are other circuits for using LED's as touch sensors, but this sucker seems a lot faster than most.

Re: drummers! how do I get this hihat sound??

Regarding the point that you need real hi-hats to sound like real hi-hats: I've played e-drums and acoustics for thirty years so I can back you up on that. But, to duplicate the sound in the LCD track, you could do that with samples if you wanted. The_planet had the best suggestion of any of us. Go ...

Re: How Good is the Casio CZ-101 for a Midi Controller?

I bought one new when they came out for about $300. It's ok for what it is and when it was introduced, but you'd be much better off putting that money into something new and sturdier. All other things being equal, it's 25-year-old gear that can fail on you.

Re: drummers! how do I get this hihat sound??

I think you want compression, and tape saturation, To duplicate the sound of simply hitting a hi-hat on it's edge? That sounds like a lot of shit to go through to get a sound that comes naturally to the instrument. Now that I think about it, BFD has some samples like that. They're listed as "shank"...

Re: drummers! how do I get this hihat sound??

It's not the pattern, right? It's the sounds and how they're made. I'm sure it's a combination of edge and top hits on a closed hat. Maybe I should mention I've been paid to play hi-hat's? :D

Re: drummers! how do I get this hihat sound??

It sounds like a combination of top hits and edge hits. The chunky sounds are the edge hits. They sound like standard, medium or medium-thin hats to me.

Re: FOUND: 192 button controller for 45 euros !

You know, as someone who used to own a restaurant, you'd think POS keyboards would have occurred to me. Cherry Keyboards makes a bunch of them. The Cherry RC128B looks really promising, since you can get a kit to customize the keycaps, including bridging them together. This one looks cool too, and q...
