Do not go here unless you have A LOT of free time.


ZenChat / Heat and your Zendrum
« on: June 18, 2007, 09:27:11 AM »
OK, if you're playing an outdoor gig and put your ZD down for a break, COVER IT.

Not that it will malfunction or anything like that.

But those freakin black pads get HOT in direct sunlight for 15 minutes.

Media / Greatest way to sell your MP3s
« on: May 18, 2007, 08:28:47 AM »
Man, this is awesome.

If your band has MP3s for sale, I really, really, really heartily recommend SnoCap.

You give them your tunes, they create a host store that you can have on any web site.  You set pricing, availability and all that.  People can preview each tune and all that, on THEIR bandwidth.  Cost: $30 per year.  Easily made back if your band has any sort of following.

I tried actually putting the storefront here in the forum, but the forum software blocks HTML that makes outside include calls.

It's the top doohickey on our page here:

I strongly recommend it to anyone with MP3s to sell.

ZenChat / Get your new Zendrum Favorites Icon today
« on: May 10, 2007, 08:12:52 AM »
If you have Zendrum as a bookmarked favorite (and who doesn't?) and you haven't seen the new nifty Z icon that replaces your browser's icon in your favorites and bookmarks, remove the bookmark to Zendrum.com and re-add it.

Some browsers will already be showing it.  Some never will.  Its the wonder of internet compatibility.

Music / Did you ever find people making videos to your songs?
« on: May 04, 2007, 08:38:55 PM »
All of a sudden, people are making videos of songs I wrote and posting them around the internet.

Its kind of freaky.

ZenChat / Guitar Hero II - great finger practice
« on: April 17, 2007, 09:52:22 PM »
I got Guitar Hero II for my Xbox 360.


This is like finger rudiments for Zendrum, but with scoring and heavy music.

I suggest everyone go get it to learn finger independence.

ZenDirectSample(R) Formats Supported
AAC (16 to 320 Kbps), Protected AAC (from iTunes Store), MP3 (16 to 320 Kbps), MP3 VBR, Audible (formats 2, 3 and 4), AIFF and WAV

Features no longer supported:
Displaying the velocity of each individual hit

Currently, due to memory and speed restrictions, MIDI Out features will be disabled.  This will make all pads lose any triggering functions they have.  The LED will flash to show that you have made an impact.

To make up for the loss of MIDI functionality, ZenDirectSample(R) will be introduced.

ZenDirectSample(R) Details
To play a song, a user will download the complete track they wish to play into the unit.  While none of the pads will actually trigger any sounds, the thumbplate on the back will function like a wheel, so you rotate your thumb around it to chose which sample you would like to play, which is shown in the display window.  You would then start the sample when the song starts.  Another touchwheel command can stop the playback.  Those simple two taps can be the entire performance of a song, speeding up the learning curve tremendously.  To make playing easier, since the pads no longer function, you may simply tap the pads in any flamboyant and exciting manner you wish, to put on a good show.

To go along with the release of the new chip, they will be available in 20 and 40 gig models.  For the new user, a low priced alternative, the ZenShuffle will become available.  However, the ZenShuffle does not allow you to choose your song order, so make sure you start each song and the rest of the band has a moment to figure out what song you are playing.

This will be the first step of the newly formed merger between ZenDrum and Apple.  We appreciate your support during this transition time and hope to keep you all as we move on to future products like the ZenVideo, where you can use a video of your own performance, rather than actually showing up.

Thank you.

Music / Random Zendrum
« on: January 18, 2007, 06:28:40 PM »
OK, here's a trick.

Mess up your Zendrum and your sound modules on purpose.

I did this by having my son go to a setup and just randomly assign pads.

Then he messed with my modules.  Without saving the settings, of course.

Then I gave myself 5 minutes to figure out what sounds were where and came up with something.

Here's the Totally Random 5 minutes from scratch Zendrum jam I ended up with.


Give it a try.  Its pretty weird.
