Hey Gary Lee-
Got your Zendrum carved and ready to start sanding.
Will be playing with "SG" stains to get a good color match for the right look.
Hang on, man!

And...I can't tell if you think that was funny or if you're ignorant of how offensive it really is to post some stupid sexist thing on a public forum with "GIRLS" participating?
Regardless of your intentions, the effect is the same on me and most likely everyone else here.
Yes, that was offensive to me personally...on behalf of all the women I know.
Bless your heart if you don't "get it." Hopefully one day you will if YOU have daughters.

Think about it before you post again, buddy.
That sort of arrogant unkindness will NOT go unchallenged on THIS forum.

Thank you very much for the positive comments.
I DO take these instruments very personally.
Having a ten year veteran ZX user order something new is a point of pride for me.
Thanks Steve!

Hey Gary,
Absolutely you can still use the pedals into the TD-6 trigger inputs while using the MIDI In for the Zendrum.
I would highly recommend doing that first to make the transition easier.
That's what I did too, until I realized after a couple of gigs that I could play 32nd note bass drum fills with my hands in the middle of Mustang Sally and make my bass player run screaming off the stage...(what fun!!!)
Mainly I would say do ANYTHING that makes you comfortable and have a good time. There are no rules here, only imagination and experimentation. Go for it.

70 degrees and beautiful clear skies today.
T-shirt weather (if you're working hard!)
Onward, into the woodshop dust I go...

We had to get Chris out of the frozen tundra and thaw him out so he could think straight.
Yes, he is currently working on the code, but mainly this was just for defrosting his brain.

Hey Guys,
What a rock n roll adventure of a road trip.
I'm glad you all made it home alive!
Michael, I hope you get the ride straightened out soon.
Still drivable I hope?

Chris DeHaas is down here visiting with me from Cleveland this weekend.
He said he hadn't seen the sun in weeks and he's flying right back into the winter mess tomorrow. All y'all need to move down here and live with us Hicks in Georgia where its 70 degrees today!
I know it would be a culture shock for you folks, but you wouldn't freeze your butts off all winter.
I don't see how you do it every year. Everybody freaks out down here if they see one snowflake come out of the sky and then they go out and buy up all the bread and milk at the store!!!
Hilarious...

I think its great you all took the initiative and made the strong effort to have this powwow.
Sounds like a very cool story to tell-
Kudos to each one of you, AND
Thank you Pyrate and (most especially) to your Better Half!

Hey Zenfem!

I would make two suggestions-
1) that you use your own monitor amp too,no matter what else they give you to hear with.
You need to be able to get more when you need it to hear yourself without having to ask anybody. Giving up control of your dynamic headroom is quite hazardous to your groove's health. Place that little amp right in your ear so you can crank it up.

2) that you take some kind of backup sound source for when the computer sticks it's tongue out at you onstage. Extra MIDI cables too for the Zendrum.

Figure out ahead of time what happens when the power blinks.
If that means lots of reboot time, you need some acoustic percussion handy and close by.
"the show must go on..."

Try to get out front at soundcheck to hear what is coming through the front house speakers.
With diplomacy, you can get a little more consideration from the sound mixer person as a featured performer instead of an electronic thingy that can be easily buried in the mix.
If you're giving them stereo outs, there's not much for them to do except not squash your sound. Some can't resist the urge to, anyway... Two DI's cover that interface to the PA with a ground lift switch on each one.

Double check your audio cables, too. That's usually the culprit with bad buzzes.

Hey new Brother,
SOLUTION-
Reverse the polarity of the sustain button.
1) Toggle right cursor to (PL)
2) Press + ( display will show 0)
3) Press + and change to 1.
4) Toggle left to Pr to write into memory at power down.
Button is now a "kill" switch.
Got it?

When you take a break, read the 5 pages in the manual that mean something.
You're always welcome to call my cell phone which I will happily send you via private email.
Be happy to help you whenever you get stuck.
HAVE FUN! & Welcome to the 21st Century Techno Tribe!
Enjoy that axe,
David

Hey Alexei,

I'm not sure what Eric is doing with the "fix" he devised for his RMX.
Perhaps he can elaborate further for you if you contact him directly through the Spectrasonics link.

The Zendrum code mod project is underway, and we have been discussing which functional improvements to add.
These improvements will be sold as a user-replaceable chip swap, like the upgrade we sell for older ZX's now, so we can ship to Russia whenever its ready to go and you can replace the chip yourself there.

I don't know yet how long this will take to finish, or ultimately, what we will include as additional features. We are in the early prototype stage now. Hopefully, I will have something to test in about a month from Chris De Haas, our engineer.

Hey Alexei, I got a response from Eric Persing @ Spectrasonics.
Unfortunately, it looks like a chip mod will have to be created by us to fix this issue.
This is back on the drawing board for our engineer to create.
Here are Eric's comments...

[Yeah...the sustain pedal trick won't work with RMX and the Zendrum.

The notes that the Zendrum outputs are actually too short for RMX to respond to. Our solution that we did for the NAMM show was an extremely elaborate Logic Environment that lengthened the MIDI note data on real-time input. Unfortunately, it's not a fix that the average user could handle....pretty tricky to set-up and use.

You had mentioned last year that you were considering adding an adjustable gate time update to the Zendrum software...what's happening with that? That update would solve the RMX problem for sure. All us RMX users would be extremely grateful for that update! :-)

All the best,

Eric Persing

ZenChat / Re: Assigning a Kick Sound to Cymbal TD-12 / 20

Thank you Brother Mike!

On the Alesis DMPro, you just toggle "Drum Link" to accomplish the same effect, and use a MIDI note number that's not being triggered for the extra sound.

Good tip!

Hey Alexei!
Welcome to the Tribe!

I think I know what is happening...
Reverse the polarity of the sustain button (PL) function, from 0 to 1.
That will let the sonic envelopes play through and be heard.
Hope this helps,
David
