That's dependent on the module, not the ZD.

If your module supports muting by a MIDI note, then yes.

Thanks, all.

Good to see all the familiar faces back in place.

ZenChat / Re: Sound modules that emulate hand drum technique

What you've got there is a Muse.

They were a limited production marketing experiment that didn't pan out.

Anyway, your questions are all answered at the module level. 

I'm not 100% sure how the d4 hihat works, but what you need is a mute function, and I don't know if that module has it.

Alesis' later modules use at least a low filter pass on sounds being hit more lightly.  This results in the 'harder' hits having more presence.

you would be triggering flat-topped 127's in velocity.

Sounds like air force jargon, doesn't it?

When MP3.COM was for indies, I had 2 CDs out that were only Zendrum and vocals.  They did fairly well.  Although I was using some real primitive samples and such.

You need either the battery merge box or the internal 9V mod done by Zendrum.

Warning: always change your batteries before a show.  Use used ones to practice, but ALWAYS get new ones for a show.  And know your range.  And avoid wandering among drunks.

There's different ways to do this

1) Create a kit where some tones are bass, some are drums.  I don't have a D4, so I'm not aware if your current module has the editing capability.

2) Use multiple modules, where note X triggers a drum in module A, and silence in the other, while note B triggers silence for the drums and a vass note in the other ( of course they really don't have to be exclusive).

Anyhoo, I've noticed that my hands have been sore the morning after. 

The amount of comments that could be made about finding a girlfriend really makes me wish I hadn't imposed that PG-13 rule...

As for warmups and cool downs, it really just sounds like you're hitting the thing too hard, or you're being to tense when you play and holding the tightness in your hands too much.

My warmups have nothing to do with getting my hands ready.  I'll always play along (unplugged) with the last song or two played by the warmup band, just to start feeling it.  Otherwise, 20 pushups and I'm ready to go.

Zendrum in maple/wenge/zebra and one in red.

In a 2 slot RockSack.

Crown amp head, Samson mixer, yamaha reverb, don't remember any model names.  All in an SBC case.  And speakers depending on the size of the place.

Man, this is so much nicer than the Yahoo way of reading threads, isn't it...

Now that there's some posts here, it reall looks nice and clear. 

The work was mostly by the SimpleMachines software, folks, not me.  I just played around with the toys they made.

Glad you like it, John.

You don't think I've gone overboard with extra features and cool bits?
