Tech Help / Re: MIDIJet Wireless MIDI lag time
« on: November 21, 2011, 08:58:34 PM »
You might want to make sure that you have all of the un-needed background processes turned off, those processes could take up some of the RAM and processor causing a delay, I have noticed that more with the PC based systems than with the MAC.  I am not sure how many MIDI devices you have plugged into your E-MU 0404, but I have found that the more MIDI devices you plug in that there is some latency.  You might want to try getting a M-Audio UNO MIDI to USB cable and try just plugging your Zendrum into it and then into your computer.  See if that fixes the latency, if it doesn't, then my guess would be it has something to do with your processor having too much running in the background which will give you that delay.  Hope this helps.

I have not had any issues with a delay, there is one room that I cannot use my wireless because there are so many wireless mics and guitars as well as wi-fi and cordless phones, I think there is an interference and it will occasionally delay, so I wire up just for that room which is no big deal because I stay in the same place there.  How far away are you from the speakers when you notice the delay, the further away you are the more it will sound like a delay but it is really the time the sound has to travel to get to you.  The other thing to consider is if you are behind the mains and are not using a monitor, you could be hearing the delay of the mains bouncing off of the wall and coming back to you, that would really sound off.  If you are wearing headphones and you still notice a delay, there could many things, processor if you are using a computer, RAM, windows versus mac, and so on.  If you give some more detail of the setup when you hear the delay it may help give some insight to the problem.

I had the MIDIJet Pro that I bought as an external and it worked great.  I went for the upgrade and 109 put it in my ZX as well as a battery compartment, it all works off of the same 9 volt battery, and the range is incredible, I have played very large rooms and have had no issues with it.  I would have to say it is worth the money, 2 years + and no problems.  Just my two cents.

I will be calling him this week.  I am sad to hear that my friend is not well.  He has shown me so many things and helped me advance to where I am on my Zendrum now.  Thank you Tom, you and Mel are in my prayers.

My guess is that it would stay where the knob is set to.  You would have to turn the know all the way back to 0, other wise it would be sending the same value every time.  At least that is how my mind would think it would work.

Tech Help / Re: Sensitivity of smaller triggers in Z4
« on: August 15, 2011, 10:48:21 AM »
DK,

Zenedit will help you with the sensitivity of each trigger.  You can adjust settings per trigger and you can make changes based on how you play.  If you notice that one trigger is not responding like another, you can change the non responsive trigger with Zenedit and make it "hotter" it will trigger with a lighter touch.  As for software versus drum modules, the module has limited variations for each drum, there may only be 4 soft, 4 medium, and 4 hard hits for each drum, with software, you can load in 20 soft, medium and hard hits if the software is that extensive.  The new Zendrum Drive has tons of hits per velocity.  David said he recorded from the softest hit to breaking the stick on each drum.  With that you will have the maximum amount of response to your trigger hits.  I am using SD2 and it has the same concept, but I think the Zendrum Drive has more samples to choose from in regards to velocity.  BFD2 is the same way, I don't have BFD2 (yet) but I know it takes a lot of computer memory so I can imagine there are many velocity samples to choose from.

Send checks payable to The Pocket Master......haha.  You are doing great work with our instrument and I appreciate you.  Anytime I can plug Zenedit to someone that can really use it, I will.

I have adjusted my sensitivity in the superior drummer software to how I play with each hand.  I have Zenedit and it works great for individual triggers, it is a good investment for the money, and right now it only works with the Z4.  Glad to see you made it on the forum drummingkitten.

Here is a question about the note duration, can you make it have the abilty to play the note, sustain it, then turn it off when another note/trigger is selected?  In other words, I play an F, but want it to play for 2 measures, then play a C and the F stops playing.  If you set the duration of the note, it would depend on the tempo of the song, if you are playing the song slower than usual, the note would shut off before you wanted it to.  Just curious if that is doable....is that a word???

I got to say that you are really opening up some doors on what you can do with the Zendrum.  Thanks for what you are doing, I am looking forward to the next releases.  I think those with the Z3 board are going to jump on the Zenedit wagon as well and utilize the features you are giving them.  There are people out there with more than one Zendrum and may not be able to upgrade all of them from the Z3 to the Z4, at least now they can benefit from your hard work.

Thanks,

Rob

ZenChat / Re: Z4 retrofit and new 6 triggers
« on: July 31, 2011, 08:29:11 PM »
I ran into a guy that has 4 ZX's, and just bought a new "Old" stlye ZX.  One of them is the old plastic model that Zendrum no longer makes.  One other ZX is wood which he still uses, and 2 others are for parts.  I almost cried when he told me that, I almost wanted to buy them off of him and have them brought back to life, but for now, I know where they are and I am happy with mine.

ZenChat / Re: Latency issues
« on: July 31, 2011, 08:25:35 PM »
There is one venue that I play that I cannot use my wireless because they are using 5 wireless mics, 4 wirless in-ear monitor systems, and wi-fi for their computers.  I have had that same thing happen, mainly when I am playing multiple drums at the same time like a snare and crash or kick and crash.  I plug in and the problem is gone.  The other question is how many drum kits do you have loaded into GB?  I have 8 GB of RAM in my MacBook Pro and am using Superior Drummer from ToonTrack, and I can only load 6 SD2 kits into my host before the memory is gone, but the problem I have with overloading the memory is that the entire program shuts down, not a delayed hit, so I am going to guess it is the wireless having interfernece somehow.

I have the rechargable batteries but I still change them out for freshly charged batteries even if I only used it for sound check, I guess I am just paranoid but, I have not had an issue yet, even when I tried to let one run out, it was almost 3 days of playing for about 4-5 hours before it finally gave out on me.  I just won't tempt fate during a gig, I always change it out.

With the Z4, you can have up to 30 triggers, and if you use the crossfade function on the Zendrum or in Zenedit, you can have 4 notes per trigger for 120 different sounds.  At least that is how I would see it.  Realisticaly, I have several triggers with the same sounds so I can trigger them with either hand.  There are some sounds that I have on one, like chimes because it is in a place where I can get to it with both hands if I need to.
