It's the perfect stage monitor.  For some smaller gigs, it's all the amplification I need.

Are you completely sold on the Apollo?  Because there are dozens of similar products out there, many with on-board midi.

If you simply must stick with the Apollo though, then I would recommend a separate MIDI interface.  The venerable M-Audio UNO is what is usually recommended as it's affordable, reliable and plays nice with the Zendrum's finicky SysEx implementation.  It also works on Mac, PC and Linux.  Very flexible.  http://www.m-audio.com/products/view/uno

Nothing this week, but we'll be in the gazebo downtown next Saturday.  https://nebiru.com/drumwagon/show/?id=242

Yeah, that place is still there.  Good for emergency cables ;)

For small venues, I get by just fine with my trusty Simmons DA200S http://simmonsdrums.net/product/da200/

For any show that requires mains, I still bring the Simmons but use it as a monitor.

When I have to do my own FOH, I use two 15" JBL EONs with an 18" sub.  That's overkill for most situations though.
For medium sized venues I'll just bring one or both 15s.

HTH -- holler if you're ever in the North Bay :)

The help file has a section on 'customizing your zendrum'.  That's the best place to start.

Cool idea!

Assuming your Zendrum is connected correctly and that you are using a recognized interface, then the Zendrum screen should have a flashing light while receiving SysEx data.

Some basic troubleshooting tips can be found here http://www.zendrumstudio.com/index.cfm?event=helpIndex#sysexTimeout


Tech Help / Re: Sustain button/switch w/ BFD3

Technically any CC value can be used, however you should try to use one that doesn't have common usage.  Here are the available values :https://www.midi.org/specifications/item/table-3-control-change-messages-data-bytes-2

What host/daw are you using?  If you have a plugin chain that includes a MIDI filter then another possibility is to convert the CC message into a NOTE ON one.  That way you can map a choke articulation directly in BFD and target one cymbal rather than cutting off all sounds.
If you happen to use REAPER as a DAW then I have a utility I wrote to do just that: http://nebiru.com/drumWagon/page.cfm/ReaperJS


No, the triggers are velocity sensitive only.

Here is a link to the manual http://www.scribd.com/doc/135898841/Zendrum-Z4-Manual-ZX#scribd

The manuals would indicate a 'no'.  There is no mention of MIDI IN or playback of recordings made via MIDI OUT.  Perhaps more telling though is there is no MIDI implementation chart.

I'd hook up the output to your computer and use MIDI-OX, etc to analyze what's being output.  Does the pedal work when connected directly to the Nord? 
You can also export your SysEx into ZenEdit to check what the calibration settings are for the pedal and try tweaking them.

If it's a 4.x board, you should try to run the calibration function (outlined in the manual) to set the upper and lower bounds of the pedal sweep.
