I've just connected my ZX via a cakewalk UM-1G to my iMac.
I discovered this guide http://www.macjams.com/article.php?story=20040128064923856 which made it reasonably simple.
Pity about the onboard sounds in Garageband....

The Zendrum finally arrived - actually, I had to go to FedEx to fetch it because it arrived too late in the day for delivery and I wasn't going to wait until tomorow.
I plugged it in and played for about three hours - my fingers and wrists are now officially sore! But I still have not clue about what I'm doing. I do realise I'll have to reassign some triggers because the standard layout doesn't quite make sense for me..
Watch this space.

Thanks for the warm welcome.
This is the difficult part - watching the package crawl on its way to Australia, seemingly spending an inordinate amount of time taking in the atmosphere of various FedEx facilities around the globe.
While the ability to track freight has its advantages, it is no blessing to the impatient! Roll on Monday....

I don't have a Zendrum, but... / Preparing for new arrival
« on: October 27, 2010, 08:29:52 PM »
I've read all the threads from would-be owners and now that I'm in that club, it's starting to take on a new urgency. (My ZX ships next week!)
My opening question is simple. Is there a "popular" configuration for the ZX? Rather than re-invent the wheel, I  think it makes sense to start with some kind of tried-and-tested layout and learn that. Obviously, if there are pad allocations that don't work for the individual, they can change them. But since the instrument has been around for a while,surely there's some consensus on an optimal layout, just like most acoustic kits are laid out in a predictable fashion - albeit tweaked to individual needs and tastes.
And apologies in advance if this question in naive. Please go easy on me...

ZenChat / International e-drumming virtual collaboration
« on: July 09, 2010, 04:39:25 PM »
A bunch of us around the world are collaborating in an online edrumming video with short performances from each player to a click track and perhaps bass riff. There are lots of kit drummers already onboard. but I'd like to see some e-percussionists.
Any Zendrummers would be welcomed and you can read all about the project  here: http://vdrums.com/forum/showthread.php?t=61814.
Anyone wanting to get involved (bear i mind this is an amateur, for-fun venture), either hop onto that forum and post your interest or contact me at digitalDrummer.
Lookig forward to a flood of talent....


ZenChat / digitalDrummer July is live
« on: June 25, 2010, 08:26:05 PM »

Unfortuantely, no Zendrums this time - but we've got one in the wings for the October/November edition - I promise.
This month .... our profiled artist, Oli Rubow, might not be a household name, but he certainly knows how to use electronic drums and effects to augment acoustics in performances.
And speaking of performances, we look at the world’s most successful circus enterprise, Cirque du Soleil, and how its musicians use e-drums to create atmosphere.
Our July edition features more stories, more topics and more contributors as digitalDrummer continues to expand and we hope you find it interesting, educational and hopefully inspirational.
If you have previously registered for the free magazine, you should be able to access the latest edition here: www.digitaldrummermag.com.
The magazine site is rich in content, providing access not only to the current edition, but also to previous copies.
And as always, I welcome any feedback and suggestions.

And as an added incentive, we're giving away a pair of headphones to a lucky scribscriber. The winner will be notified by email - and the winner will have 48 horus to claim their prize. If it goes to a bogus email, we'll redraw until someone claims the cans.

See you online.

Sorry ofr the double post, but for those more attracted to Tom than to my post, here's a link to the magazine www.digitaldrummermag.com.
And Tom, thanks so much for sharing your story and your wisdom. If you ever stand for mayor, you've got my vote!

Thanks for the mention, Tom. And what a true gentleman he is. He was so giving - of his time and himself - in the interview, and I'm happy to have him as my first (not second) profile.
The "dummy" edition currently online is a complilation of stuff I have written for other publications, and merely shows the format and the style of the new magazine. But Tom will be our first featured artist when the magazine debuts in January.
The content ranges from new gear reviews to a look at the best-bang-for-buck used module; DIY information on piezos, long-distance musical collaboration and a drum lesson from the owner of the world's largest performance kit.
I've got contributors around the globe and the magazine will be availabe free, online at www.digitaldrummermag.com.
Now all I need is some advertisers to pay for it all.....
See you online
