Avast Thar Mateys,

    Aye currently use a Roland KC 150.  For small venues it seems to do the trick.  For larger places Aye would recommend a QSC K12.

Avast Thar Mateys,

         Aye have parlayed this before and will again in times to come.  The folks at Zendrum are the absolute best.  There be none finer on the whole of the seven seas!  They be the one company Aye know of that actually understands the term "customer service" and puts that concept into action.  BZ to all the folks that make Zendrum work.

Avast Thar Mateys,

     Break out the Harpoons!  Stand ready to defend the ship!  Death to the Worthless Bastards!!!  Aye started with this forum before purchasing me Jolly Roger Zen.  Aye still depend on it for learning the latest techniques, hardware and software tricks and products.  Aye cannot thank, The Inspector, Zengina, Kim Daniel, Darin (of Zenedit fame) and Geosphere enough for allowing this Olde Salt the gift of being able to play drums again, in such a confined space as Aye currently have. BZ to all of ye!

Avast Thar Mateys,

       Aye heartily concur with me shipmates regarding this forum.  By Neptune's Trident we need to stick together and weather this storm of idiocy that seems to have taken over the world at large.  Aye for one, will be happy to participate in such a noble cause.  So be there any questions for the Olde Salt, Aye will pleased to respond.

Tech Help / Re: BFD - Laptop compatability issues
« on: March 07, 2012, 06:46:16 AM »
Avast Thar Mateys,

       Aye have a Roland TD-20 and two laptops with BFD 2 installed.  Aye was running into some of the problems that you are experiencing, but Aye called upon Mr. Wizard (John Emrich) to assist me.  Ye have to look in yer settings and make certain that certain parameters are not set too high.  Aye be not familiar with Line 6, but Aye use a MOTU Midi interface as well as a Presonus USB to Midi Audio Interface.  After a parlay with Mr. Wizard, we figured out my sampling rate was too high, causing latency.  Aye also had me bit rate set at either 32 or 64 (can't remember anymore), but we set that to 8, lowered the sample rate and the latency went away.  He also suggested a get a decent DAW, such as Ableton or Studio One to run as a host for BFD.  My original laptop for this was an HP, Intel I5 with 4 Gbytes RAM and a 250 Gbyte Hard drive with a 1TB external using USB 3.0.  That seemed to wirk just fine, except that Aye couldn't manage to save any defined kits (Aye believe this is operator error).  Since then Aye have broken down, under extreme pressure from me shipmates here in the forum and purchased a macbook pro with an intel I5 and 8GB of memory connected to the aforementioned 1TB external hard drive using Firewire 800.  Using the Presonus audio interface and ASIO drivers, seems to provide a working solution, although Aye am still befuddled by the inability to save/recall kits that I design on a consistent basis.  Aye still prefer the TD-20 for its portability and ease of setup.  Once Aye figure this software thing out, Aye will probably switch to the computer way as routine.

     Another thought is that our fine folks at Zendrum have developed the Zendrumdrive.  A computer already rack mounted in its own travel case, with Battery 3 software and samples already loaded.  It has a Solid State Hard drive and starts instantly.  Truly a plug and play device and extremely portable.  Have a parlay with Inspector 109 and he will give you all the great details.

     Aye hope this helps.

Avast Thar Inspector,

       There be a free iPad app called Splashtop Remote that seems to work fine for both Windows and MAC computers.  Adding a wireless router should not present a problem, but ensuring a private connection will take a bit of configuration tweaking.  And then there be the small matter of electrical power.  Aye suppose that will not be a problem as a zendrummer needs power for the Zendrumdrive and any external hard drives as well.
