ZenChat / Re: Zendrum Traveling?
« on: July 12, 2006, 03:24:47 AM »
Ive flown back and forth from Ireland to the USA many times with my Zendrum as hand luggage. I'd NEVER check it in.
Last time it was Zendrum plus a 20" Cymbal bag with my ibook in a Crumpler bag inside.  I just say its a "MIDI Drumset / Electronic drumset" which seems to work fine. I think the staff at Nashville Airport are used to us Musicians!!!!

Maybe bring a print-out of the Zendrum manual in the case if they get  curious.

Personally if I had a DMPro/DM5 and a Motif.....buying another module would be a waste of money. Yes portability but having a Module/Merge box etc. safely housed in a 2U rack case in my experience far outweighs having a smaller module but then loose cables/Merge box all over the floor at gigs waiting to get stood on.

If you were thinking of a TD-20 module you may be better off going for the Muse Receptor/BFD route like John Emrich.

what type of power supply does it need if any?
The MIDI cable gos out to a Merge Box, which goes to your MIDI module and an electric outlet.

so its just powered from the module? nice. i figured it would need its own power like my midi control keyboard.

There is a seperate Power supply (or battery pack) required for the Merge box.

and is it possible to have one pad trigger sounds from more than one module at the same time?
Sure, just use MIDI through.

so i can set 2 notes to the one pad?

One note per pad, it'd be the same MIDI note in both modules or you can use the Note switch function that will increment through 4 consecutive MIDI notes the harder you strike the pad.

Download the Manual from the website.

Zendrum ZX - Figured Maple/Zebrawood Centre section…..beautiful
Zendrum Muse - Black ($90)

Alesis DMPro
Alesis D4 - Backup
Alesis Picoverb

Roland KC-500 Amp

Reason 2.5 on a G3 ibook but I haven't used it much yet.

Saving up for an RCF 705AS Subwoofer and maybe an Akai Z4 Sampler for the large collection of samples I have (Bob Clearmountain/Double Platinum Drums/Steve Smith/LP Percussion etc.)
