Tech Help / Re: Trigger set ups

If you download the patch sheet that Grimrich has a link for earlier in this thread, you can fill it in and save it as a ".PNG" file.  Then you can upload it as an attachment.

I tried to do this, but I don't seem to be able to save the file with a ".png" extension, then open it.... sure did try tho!  PICTURE IT does not open it, nor does Paint. How do I save the picture as a png file? I'm not sure Adobe supports that.

ok guys, I'd like to add my percussion set ups to this thread, but I can't figure out how to download the pdf or jpg files, write on them, save them , and upload to this site. Argh!
If one of you fine gentleman can help us out on this, it would be appreciated....

I've left #15 and #16 as they were originally. I have a TD-10 that I am using, so I can change the drum sets, but leave the trigger set up alone. I change the percussion triggers only, so I can flip back and forth between 15 and 16 and get different percussive sounds, but leave the basics the same.

I set up a couple of different percussion sets on #10 and #11, each setup is different. I'll upload them if I can.
Thanks all, this has been informative. Since I am so new at this, it helps to see what others with experience are doing.

I thnik this thread will help unlock a lot of different playing techniques, which I hope will help all of us. I know that reviewing these I have already seen a different approach to playing then what I set up. My pads are all individualized, I inititially thought it would be better... like having one drum or sound per trigger. Nope... doesn't work well.  I am going to play with different setups, but looking at these, now I have a direction to go in.

 Geo, you've been at this a while, and you've already gone through trial and error setups, which I hope I can use as a shortcut of sorts, to make playing easier with a more efficient setup. I'd like to post my own setups as well, so I will wait for you to make that png file available.
Thanks !

Hi all,
I was wondering how everyone sets up there triggering? Do you keep the factory defaults, or do you set the triggers up according to some master plan?

I think I got off on the wrong foot when I intially started playing with mine. I tried a few different set ups, got frustrated, didn't make/have time to practice, and essentially stopped. Now I am going back to trying to master this, and I am interested in knowing HOW, and WHY, some set ups may be better than others. I know its an individual kinda thing, but I feel a bit lost. I think when I set mine up, I didn't have enough experience to know which triggers I want close to each other, which are better to have duplicated, and where, etc. The factory defaults sem to be ok, but I'd realy like to know how everyone has there's set up. Can we do this using the Annotations as described in the resource site?

Incidentally, when I first started playing the Zendrum, after a month I actually was gigging with it. But I never got comfortable, and found I was concentrating so much on the technical aspect of playing the instrument, I was not flowing, and just playing. I think I expected to master this too soon, and WAY too easily. Now that I've "grown up", I realise this is gonna take some time, and lots of work. So, if I am going to figure this out, I need help!

Thanks all
