Hello I have a Zendrum with wireless midi. What do I need to do to play song samples thru a speaker that I wear on my back. I would also need battery powered hardware. The speaker is a Bose 3 which is also blue tooth enabled. Thanks Kiltie

How is the Launchpad Mini's playing response and sensitivity for finger drumming?

Yes, KMI's stuff is inconsistent. I'm unable to program the QuNexus's controller layer from any computer, and the dev has no troubleshooting advice. And my QuNeo's rotating controllers have a nice fingerdrumming sensitivity that none of the 16 square pads has. You do have to bear down on the sliders more than you'd like to. Meanwhile, the QuNexus's sensitivity would make the older QuNeo much more usable. Apparently, they changed technology between the two devices. I asked precisely that question on the KMI forums after buying the QuNexus and before buying the QuNeo, but the answer they gave me was wrong. I think they don't comprehend how sensitive our fingers have become from playing ZenDrum triggers.

Sorry I missed this Jimmy, I'm not on the forums much any more.
I wouldn't recommend the Launchpad as a drum controller. The pads are reasonably sensitive to taps, but I don't believe they have any velocity capability. You'd basically have to tweak the velocity of every note in your DAW after recording. Not really ideal, but it all depends on your process.

I like and use both. BFD3, most NI drum libraries, SSD4, Superior Drummer, etc.
NI drum libraries seem to have a lower sensitivity and require higher velocity curves on the hardware.

The next major version is nearing completion. The focus this time is on adding additional MIDI Out capabilities and also improvements to the note selection workflow. We're also adding module support for several newly released drum brains.

If you have any ideas or requests for new features, now is the time to submit them here!


You can also stay abreast of updates here:

That all depends on your sound source...
If it is possible to have one sound cut another one off, then you can assign all those sounds to one mute group.
Please elaborate on what you are using-

That's vintage stuff...94/95/96 Datawheel, so I'm trying to jog my memory about the pinout connections on that circuitboard.
Did you unplug the display ribbon? Something about that arrangement looks funny to me...
but I may need to get an older board out and put it on the bench to test my memory.  :o
Please reply directly to my support email and I'll try to help quickly-

Good day!

I have a problem with my Zendrum (ZX).
Led display always shows 188.
I tried to change the battery, but it did not help.

Then I disconnected the wires connecting the "motherboard" and cursor switch (see image).

Zendrum works, but it is impossible to configure.
What happened?

I got it worked out. I bought a $4 volume switch, a $3 audio cable and a $2 audio jack from Radioshack to make a control for the hihat. When plugged into my TD-20 hihat control it works to make a half open hi hat when dialed in just right and I don't need a pedal. I set one trigger for #42 closed hat and a different trigger for #46 open and it plays half open instead of fully open and closes when I hit #42. yay! I can be free from pedals now.

Hey all.
Discovered something weird tonight... my knobs do not go all the way up to 127 after calibrating everything.
They range from 0-124, and appear to be on the same response curve as the "3" setting (e.g. the beginning of the turn rockets up the value and then it slows down to where the increases only come a couple per centimeter of rotation)

I found that, if I use ZenEdit and drop the "max" output of the knobs to about 96 (they started ~98.5 after calibration) then they will read all the way up to 127.

So, 1) I'm confused why calibration of the knobs doesn't allow reaching the value of 127 by default, and
2) I'm confused why setting the "max" output of these knobs to 96 results in a value of 127 being reached. You would think that setting the max to 127 would result in 127.
