ZenChat / Re: Zendrum with Electronic Music

Thanks for the advice Jaay. It really comes down to, if I'm going to spend a lot on a drum module, I don't want to limit what I have access to. Cobalt Core (the main group I'll be playing with) has some really ethnic sounds involved in it and not everything is going to be electronic sounding. On the other hand, my personal futurepop project, The Walls Collapse, has a much more electronic style.

What about post processing of the drum sounds? What do people usually do to get that deep, booming kick drum that you might hear in a techno song?

Thanks for the suggestions. I know I should be making use of this majestic library of samples, but the idea of a really simplistic setup is very attractive to me. After dropping a big hunk of money on the ZX, though, budget for a standalone drum machine is a bit distant. ;) I'll keep these in mind.

Hey everybody,
I've taken the plunge and have ordered a ZX. :)

I wanted to get the opinions of some of you out there who have played more or are more familiar with the electronica genres of music. I'm involved in the futurepop, synthpop, and EBM music scenes (some examples of similar-sounding bands would be VNV Nation, Assemblage 23, Apoptygma Berzerk, Neuroticfish, and Seabound).

I'll be playing my Zendrum primarily through a laptop with Battery 3 and Native Instruments Komplete, which from what I've seen has a great range of drum samples to use. However, I've seen enough laptop and hardware failures on stage and just before shows to know that a backup is ALWAYS advisable.

So, for those of you who know this style of music, what standalone drum modules would you recommend that have excellent realism and broad dynamic in their samples, that also offer some more electronic-sounding drum sounds?

Thanks for your advice on this!

Though I don't have a Zendrum, I am looking forward to buying my first one very soon, within the next couple of weeks.

I live in the northwest suburbs of Chicago, IL.

Thanks for the quick responses!
I'm closer to Downer's Grove than I am to southwest or central IL. :) I'm in a northwest suburb of Chicago, but I have no problem heading to Downer's Grove or further south as the case may be, depending on what's convenient.

I don't have a ton of experience playing the drums yet, so don't expect me to be able to pick it up and bust out all the rudiments and create masterful patterns with it, haha. I think this is where I'd like my percussion experience to go though so I think this instrument will be a good fit for me. I'm just not in the habit of buying really expensive things that I can't see or touch before buying, so I really appreciate the willingness to help out here.

Hello everyone,
I am an aspiring drummer and am considering purchasing a Zendrum.
What I was wondering is, does anyone on this message board live in the Chicago area, and would you be willing to demo the controller for me? I would like to get a feel for the instrument before I plunk down a couple of thousand dollars for it.

Please email me at chaosmonk [at] hotmail dot com if you are available to show off your toy.

Thanks everyone!
