Hi, mac os 10.5.8 yes I can connect the zendrum to the computer... using bfd2 for example...I am using an M-Audio interface... when I tap the zendrum the green lights flickers to show it is transmitting... Thanks for the help... I'm sure it's something I'm doing wrong... Rob

ZenEdit / no midi proxy
« on: January 25, 2011, 07:43:31 PM »
Hello, I am attempting to learn zenedit, now that I have the z4 upgrade, I downloaded and installed the proxy, when I open zenedit, it says midi unavailable, I go to reconnect... I don't get the box that asks what kind of device I have... and the midi stays unavailable... also how do I hook up my drom module to get the sounds when I am changing trigger sounds thru zenedit, I have a Roland 6, thanks, Rob

Hello, I use the Zendrum with 24 triggers, Roland spd 20 with additional pads for a total of 12 more pads, and a Roland td 6v with 8 more pads for a total of 44 different sounds available, using above, plus garage band, bfd2, battery 3, and other various programs... so I use sticks, or a combination of 1 hand, 1 stick, or 2 hands... Thanks for the question... Rob

These can also be played with a right hand paradiddle  at the end, which would alternate the pattern...

Hi, I recently purchased bfd 2, and had a slower rpm drive, I went cdw and purchased a Lacie external 1 terabit hd. This makes the usual stuff from b buy look like crap. This monster has huge heat sinks, all the latast connectivity... ran me $169.00 ? one of the best purchases I have ever bought, next to my zendrum, and the yellow vistalite snare drum i marched with in 75'.

Thanks for the reply, since the post I've picked up another  1T external drive, using 400 firewire, which is 7200 rpm. I agree with your saving, I'm finally getting a map saved on the zendrum using my Roland SPD 20, and I think I'll have to change the zendrum map number, as well as the roland set number... to get a new set with different sounds... however, keeping the same zendrum map keeps some of the sounds in the same place, however the more bizarre sounds are always applied to the same pads...hopefully someone who is fluent with roland can give me a pretty direct answer...scvkiltie

Tech Help / bfd2 drum sounds breaking up, doesn't happen with battery 3....
« on: December 09, 2009, 09:19:51 PM »
Hello, I figured out how to load some drums to the zdrum with bfd2, however, at times they screech at the end, or break up, sounding like electrical interference... this does not happen when playing a groove, just when playing a zendrum pad, and it does not happen all the time... secondly, when saving  then loading a kit to the zdrum, will it automatically pick the sounds from bfd2, or does bfd2 also have to load each kit, thanks for the help, scvkiltie

Hi, being new to BFD2 I simply had not loaded any drums...2 other quick questions, which e-drum midi map is used for the zendrum, I see many models and manufacturers, but no zendrum, secondly once I've loaded a few drums, a rhythm starts playing, where do i go to stop this... Thaks again, scvkiltie

Tech Help / no volume on BFD2
« on: December 08, 2009, 06:05:29 AM »
Hello, I purchased BFD2 yesterday, loaded it on my Macbook.... opening drum set appeared.. very cool, however, only 1 cymbal plays when clicking on all the cymbals and drums. I loaded a groove, once again it plays, but no volume? I turned up the master gain, but no help, I'm thinking it's a simple fix for an experienced user, however, I'm not there yet, Thanks, scvkiltie

« on: March 25, 2009, 07:22:01 PM »
Hello, I also went thru pc hell, ended up with Mac laptop, Logic 8, and things could not be sweeter, fire up ultra beat and off I go, if I go off real far I run it thru my Koss Kaoss pad... I was spending so much time on computer issues, I was getting real far away from the music, I still haven't learned how to program the Zendrum set ups, but at least I'm back to playin'...

Tech Help / using zendrum as a controller for synthesizer
« on: September 06, 2008, 02:52:22 PM »
Hello all, I have a question about using a synth to produce the sounds played by the zendrum... my problem is that the synth only has a midi out, while the zendrum requires a midi in into the synth... is there a device that will convert the out to in ??? Could I possibly use Battery 3 or garage band and use the synth as a plug in, and then control the synth this way... Thanks, Rob
