ZenChat / Re: EXP In Action

Having read the same article some time ago, I asked him how he thought the LT compared ergonomically, but he hasn't responded. I might ask the same question here. I don't see how the "traditional" ZenDrum shapes can offer better spinal ergonomics and less muscle tension and tendon straining than the LT. If you're willing to play from a sitting position or a snare stand mount, the LT offers greater low-tension access to more pads.

Due to the different time zone, you'll have to call during 2am-10am U.S. Eastern time to reach Chris.

Recommend you call and ask for Chris, whose English is passable. I have no idea the next time I'll be out there.

ZenChat / BFD2 feels good, Battery doesn't
« on: June 16, 2013, 02:42:06 AM »
I tried all kinds of adjustments on my new LT (with ZenEdit) and inside NI Battery, but Battery just continues to have a lousy feel: you have to strike comparatively hard to reach an audible sound level, and then there's little headroom in your finger energy left for dynamics. I did indeed fiddle quite a bit with response curves on the LT and layers inside Battery etc., but playing the ZenDrum with NI is still dissatisfying. I'm not an expert, but I'm not technically illiterate, either.

BFD2, on the other hand, just felt good right out of the box. It responds to light taps and then with a natural-feeling continuity to heavier strikes. That verifies that my technique and expectations are reasonably normal. So I'm curious if Battery can be radically adjusted for a better feel, or if it's limited in a way that bothers me more than most people? It's not a big deal since I like BFD2 just fine, but the option to use Battery's electronic sounds  would be nice, and its smaller installation footprint would be convenient for a different computer.

Attached are pictures of a controller in a local music shop, but no one's sure what it is. They seem to be sure it's a drum controller. The logo says "JD21." Any ideas?
