ZenChat / Re: Happy New Year!
« on: January 08, 2007, 07:58:47 AM »
Gig went well. It was mostly n acoustic Guitar type gig so being able to control "Drum volume" was much appreciated.
Only picture I got was one in my profile, person taking pictures had a few too many pints, i'll work on some better ones soon.

KC500 amp was fine for this gig but i'm in the market for some better amplification. It'll either be 2 x RCF 315-As (Stereo) or 1 x RCF with their Sub. To go Stereo or Mono is a bit of a quandry on limited funds, but a lot of people are suggesting that a subwoofer is probably a better option?

Cheers
Mick

Hi Gina,
just to let you know i'm house drummer at an Acoustic Charity gig on Thursday night..  It's a "John Prine"  night so the combination of "Technology" and John Prine songs will be an interesting challenge :o

A couple of the guys I've jammed with before and they asked me to "BRING THE ZENDRUM" so it's all their fault!! Unfortunately I was in the middle of recabling /reprogramming my DMPro  so it'll be the trusty Alesis D4 with a little reverb from an Alesis Picoverb /  KC500 amp...... It'll not be a loud gig anyway, maybe 100 people there at the most.

Should be fun and thanks to such an adaptable instrument I can broaden my pallette of gigs.
Thanks again
Michael

Hi Gina,
Happy New Year to you David and Kim for making such a wondeful Instrument. Going to see Futureman with the Flecktones in Dublin on the 26th Jan . He was the catalyst to me becoming a Zendrummer and meeting "The Mayor" too. 8)

Good luck for 2007
Michael

Don't forget Garageband too, some of the Drum sounds and particularly the Dobro and Fretless Bass sounds are really cool with Zendrum.

I've seen Tom Roady use the Planet Earth to great effect at  his home studio. If you are wanting some drumset samples, try and pick up the EMU "Protean Drums" ROM chip, a couple of hundred sounds but well worth it, plus you can integrate them with your current Planet Earth sounds.

For Software BFD is probably the way to go.

John's a great guy, unfortunately i haven't met him in person yet.

I had a similar experience earlier this month staying for just over a week with Tom Roady ( "The Mayor" )in Nashville.
He showed me how to get started with Garageband and Zendrum on my ibook.  The Dobro and Fretless Bass sounds are really cool.....he's always pushing me to get into more melodic Zendrumming 8)

Great guy and if you are in the Nashville area look him up at  www.tomroady.com

Hope to run into you soon John

When I got around to checkin git on Saturday, the DMPro worked fine, all patches still there so all is well again. A previous drummer there had his TD8 crash out so maybe there is a poor Mains supply to the house?

Knee deep in the manual for the Yamaha A3000 sampler I picked up off ebay. Lots of potential but it's like starting from scratch all over again.

Cheers

Well my DMPro locked up at rehearsal last night after 4 years use.......Powers up but just a black line across the top of the screen. I'll get a look at it later today and the DMPro Yahoo Forum to see if I can get any tips.

Replugged in the D4 that was in the rack....what a reliable little unit that is. So much easier to navigate than the DMPro and doesn't sound half bad with a little reverb.

It's funny as i'd finally got the lend of an old PC Laptop so I could install Emagic Sounddiver and edit the sounds on the DMPro. Hopefully all is not lost.

Mick

P.S. This arrived this morning at my front door....another toy. Yamaha A3000 Sampler -

I'm heading to PASIC in Austin this November with "The Mayor"  www.pasic.org
I'll be in Nashville for a couple of weeks and maybe a wee trip to Atlanta to Zendrum Central?.

Hope so

I have ZX since 2001 though after seeing John Emrich's Zendrum video with his Laptop strapped on it looks like a great option. Plus it suits lefthanded Zendrummers better.

Colour options....there are so many though I love my Figured Maple/Zebrawood beauty.

Welcome aboard, don't forget the Zendrum also comes about from the Woodworking  Master that is Kim Daniel 8)

Its a lot of fun and its come in really handy for rehearsing as I am playing with 3 bands this Saturday at the Hilden Brewery Beer Festival this Saturday.

www.hildenbrewery.co.uk

Its already paid for itself in convenience and saving on rehearsal venue fees, as I can now bring a full drum sound to "living room" practice sessions.

Well admittedly a Zendrum Laptop would have it licked, playing wise. 

Just the idea of a Comibined Drumkit/Throne appeals to my weird mind......another  possibility is converting a Cocktail Kit  with Mesh heads.....which for me is an easier proposition.
