ZenChat / Re: Smaller BFD2 Installer Options
« on: July 24, 2011, 05:20:10 pm »
I have thought about getting rid of a lot of the samples that I will never use. I end up using expansion kits like the Yamaha Oak more than a set of older Fibes or Ludwig Vistalites, so why clog up my drive and the selection windows.

I added three triggers when I upgraded and am very happy. You can always turn them off if you want! You will like the upgrade!

Tech Help / Re: BFD2 Hi Hat setups

Thanks! I used the Closed and Variable together and it sounds good. The Open does choke with the Closed hit. I used bits and pieces of your set up to try out also  :). I like the graphics, I still would love to be able to use your program, it looks like a great tool!

Tech Help / BFD2 Hi Hat setups
« on: June 07, 2011, 03:49:54 pm »
I was wondering what other people have done with BFD2's Hi Hats. I use a Variable Shank on one pad and an Open Tip on the other. It's not too great and I don't know how to "choke" the open sound. Any advice???

ZenEdit / Re: program froze had to force quit
« on: April 06, 2011, 07:07:54 pm »
did you ever get any help? I had no luck getting this software to work and all I got for tech support was "re install".  Not even a phone number for tech support... They did refund my money but I really wanted to use the program. If you sell a product, provide support.

ZenChat / Re: Taking a ZenDrum on a plane

I have taken mine many places around the world. Going through the Kabul, Afghanistan airport in 2005 was the worst, confused and angry security guards with automatic weapons... Usually it gets powder tested gong through the security checks. The overhead bins work okay but ask the flight attendant if there is a closet they can put it in.

Suggest looking for the Japanese Consulate in Atlanta. They encourage business and often assist in contact information. I just got back from Okinawa, english is spoken very little. Also possibly contact a local High School. My kids took Japanese and learned Kanji (?). Could possibly get help from students looking for extra credit. Food for thought...
  Am currently in Mumbai, India with my Zendrum. My biggest problem is voltages and frequency issues on gear.

Am using garage Band with my Powerbook G4 and Battery. No problems, it's nice to be able to add reverb and echo into my mix.

The Barbetta only weighs 42 pounds. It's the best thing I have found.

I use NI Battery on my mac G4 with 1.25GB of ram without problem. I keep the mac relatively "clean" and use it mostly for my Zendrum. Where can I find tutorials on Garageband? I haven't even explored this yet, has anybody used Battery with it?

ZenChat / Re: Reliability of Wireless Midi
« on: January 11, 2007, 02:40:20 am »
Has anybody tried the new M-Audio MidAir? Only $119 at Guitar Center online. The range is shallow but it beats cord confusion at a pretty decent price. I will have my friend bring me one on his way here(its all battery, no 220V to worry about!). Will give a report in about a month...

Am on a new US Consulate project in Mumbai (Bombay), India. Have met some local musicians and will be hooking up with them. These Tabla players have amazing dexterity! Will pass along any tips I get from them! So far have played my Zen in Afghanistan, Cape Town, Albania and Tajikistan! Will be here for a few years and will have the ability to play out much more. Cheers!!
