It's the perfect stage monitor.  For some smaller gigs, it's all the amplification I need.

After owning my Zendrum EXP for over 2.5 years and only able to play it through computer speakers and headphones I finally bought an amplifier. It's a Simmons DA200S and I love it. I paid $315.00 at Guitar Center and it sounds great. So if any Zendrumers are looking for an amp, test out one of these.

Hi. Noob here. It says that this forum is NOT for Zendrum gear, so is there a place to post for used Zendrums? Or does zendrum offer a consignment program? I just need to find a loving home to a Zendrum in need.

I am not tied to the UA Apollo line.  I looked at your UNO midi suggestion and perhaps that would work, but I now realize trying to ADAT an old 2008 M-Audio Octane Pre (acoustic drums) through to the Apollo would not be the best idea. 

Therefore, I am considering a Focusrite Clarett 8Pre or (8PreX).  It has Midi in/out which I assume would work as the ProjectMIx for the Zendrum, and the 8 channels would allow me to continue using my condenser/dynamic mics for recording acoustic drums.  (If I wanted plug-ins from UA in the future I could add an Apollo satellite.)

What other recommendations should I consider for a Thunderbolt interface for recording drums/guitar/bass/voice and of course eventually a Zendrum (upgraded to Z4 and Zen edit software) midi controller?

Opinions would be helpful and greatly appreciated.

Are you completely sold on the Apollo?  Because there are dozens of similar products out there, many with on-board midi.

If you simply must stick with the Apollo though, then I would recommend a separate MIDI interface.  The venerable M-Audio UNO is what is usually recommended as it's affordable, reliable and plays nice with the Zendrum's finicky SysEx implementation.  It also works on Mac, PC and Linux.  Very flexible.  http://www.m-audio.com/products/view/uno

I could use your advice...,
I finally upgraded my computer.   I am ready to purchase a new audio interface.  I am considering a new Universal Audio - Apollo Twin Duo unit. 

It DOES NOT have Midi ports.  My question is: How to connect my Zendrum?  I used to simply plug it into the back of the old interface -> M-Audio Project Mix Midi-in port. 

I currently use Abelton Live and would like to be able to take advantage of UA's extensive plug-in library for sound processing/recording. 

Abelton would see the Apollo interface for guitars, voice, but without Midi in, how would I continue to use the Zendrum with Abelton?
You see, I am not that versed in connections, midi, etc.  More like a monkey turning dials... be kind.

Hopeful that someone can lead me in the right direction.  Thanks to all,
Lucky Carmean

Nothing this week, but we'll be in the gazebo downtown next Saturday.  https://nebiru.com/drumwagon/show/?id=242

Yeah, that place is still there.  Good for emergency cables ;)

Darin, I did see that original post, was curious of new issue gear reviews.
BTW: I did not see any gigs this weekend for you, just back from Sebastopol/Cotati. Is that DJ shop downtown on the boulevard still there?

For small venues, I get by just fine with my trusty Simmons DA200S http://simmonsdrums.net/product/da200/

For any show that requires mains, I still bring the Simmons but use it as a monitor.

When I have to do my own FOH, I use two 15" JBL EONs with an 18" sub.  That's overkill for most situations though.
For medium sized venues I'll just bring one or both 15s.

HTH -- holler if you're ever in the North Bay :)

Am new Zendrum player. I am in need of current opinions/reviews on late model portable powered speakers for small clubs/venues, where plugging into the FOH is NOT an option. Anyone have experience with Electro Voice powered ELX's, EKX's in 12" or 15"? Sometime ago (2013), Inspector uses QSC K12, is that still viable ? Are QSC 15's better suited? QSC also has wood cabinet "KW" line. What are Zendrummer's using now days? Otherwise thinking wait for Stompblock to arrive, then carry along for 2 hour drive to the Bay Area (guitar center & etc.) to demo various systems. Maybe, on the same loop I continue to Petaluma to catch one of Darin's gigs to see/hear what his setup is.
