+1 for the ultralite.  Mine has been a workhorse for the past three years or so.  Never disappointed.

OWC has great drives for mac.  I have three of them.  Google it.

You might think of it as just ignorance on their part.  After all, you're playing this whacky thing and they have no idea of what it actually entails or is capable of, so they make silly requests.   

ZenChat / Re: Finally did it: BFD2 and MacBook Pro!
« on: January 29, 2009, 10:48:23 PM »
I'm have a macbook pro with bfd1 and a motu ultralite.  I've had this setup for a while.  I still go to my td-20 for live gigs for ease of setup and stability.  Why do you like bfd2 so much more than the first version?

I've not had any trouble at all with my cme widi, after countless live gigs, not a single problem...I love this thing.

I would think that drum lessons or a learn to drum video would be helpful.  Just learning some basic patterns for hi hat snare and bass drum will do a lot for you.  I first learned the set when a friend had her set and a video called "play drums now" at my house. I watched the video and thought "wow that's how they do that."  Some fundamental learning to grasp basic drumming will go a long way in helping you on your journey.

Haven't touched mine in two years.  They are for sale.

I would say don't do it.  The hard drive is ridiculously small and you can't change the battery yourself, among other things.  It also only has one usb port and no firewire.  You can get a macbook, that can have up to 4 gb of ram(you'll want it) a hard drive that you can upgrade yourself for cheap, firewire connectivity (which you want for your external drive to run bfd on a dedicated 7200rpm drive.)  And it has the same footprint as the air, its just not as thin.  I had a macbook and now have a macbook pro.  I love them both.

ZenChat / Re: New Roland expansion pack
« on: September 20, 2008, 10:29:06 AM »
I agree with Pyrate.  I too have a laptop and a td-20.  The td-20 wins hands down for ease of setup and portability.  I'm taking it to a gig tonight. With the vexpressions kits, the sounds are actually pretty good.  I've not had a complaint.  I'll be interested to see what the new expansion pack holds.

edit...I just watched the videos on Roland's website, it seems that they really are working on the module emulating an acoustic kit down to the fine details, as far as dynamics and expressiveness. It doesn't seem like they are really about adding new kits, although they are there. 

ZenChat / Re: Small Amps

I had a roland kc-150 that I sold to get a barbetta.  I wish I had held onto it. I loved that little amp, and still miss it.   It is lightweight and portable, has nice highs and lows, and if you're looking to sit in with some acoustic instruments, it has more than you'll need.  The 12" speaker doesn't have the big thump of a 15", but it does well, and with acoustic it will serve you well.

I took a look at the Apogee.  I understand that they are supposed to be great.  That said however, I have a motu ultralite, and there sure are s lot more inputs and outputs on it than the duet.  Also, what Jeff said, I think you'll be crying without midi sooner or later.  It depends on what you want to use it for.  It's it's for the zen, you're going to want midi....

As I remember there is a problem of too short midi messages being sent for Stylus RMX.  I think there is a workaround but it is not ideal.  do a search on this forum for it.  You may want to go with other software.

I've got a macbook pro and an ultralite.  It's fabulous.  You should be able to upgrade ram in that macbook to 3 gigs.  Don't buy ram from apple, they will gouge you.  go to other world computing, they have great deals, and its also a good place to go for an external drive or to upgrade your harddrive (its really easy to do in a macbook) yourself.
