Hey all,
Just wanted to comment on the superb customer support offered by Dave Haney. I emailed on Saturday about an issue I was having, Dave emailed back within a few hours and we solved problem #1 of 2. But #2 would need technical support, so Dave arranged to hook up by phone...on Sunday night! We talked and fixed the issue in 10 minutes, the call took 45 minutes, Dave and I just chatted and talked about music, technic, R&D, and more. He is mailing me a part, no charge for postage or the small part. Talk about customer support..... where in the world today would you find anyone as dedicated to their craft as Dave and the good folks at Zendrum?
Faaaaaantastic! Thanks again Inspector!
PS: Darin K. at Zenedit is also right there. No surprise his software and his persona meshes so well with Dave and Zendrum Corp.!

I use the battery box with the CME X8, a bit bulky with two small boxes clipped on my strap.

Hey Jonathan,

I am left handed as well, and I always play with the left end of the zendrum "up", at my left shoulder. I think that's generally the position everyone uses though, isn't it? I sometimes use the ZX up at a higher or lower angle depending on the song and what I am trying to accomplish. Lately I've been using it sitting down, on keyboard "x" holder, and using foot pedals for kick and hi hat which allows me more freedom to use my hands for everything else. Its different than what I have been doing for 6-7 years, but I think I like it... so far!
Good luck!

How are you powering your Zendrum while using the CME x8? I think MIDI JET will provide a power option if you ask them - they did for my review sample.

After using the CME X8 for a while I am very satisfied! It is a nice alternative to the embedded wireless as I am not in the US and able to get my Zendrum in the shop.

This could be the beginning of your journey to the dark side :)

I still recall the day a few years back that I finally got sick of the Roland sounds.  At first it was the snares, then it was the crashes and finally it was the toms.  There are still some percussion sounds of Roland that I like (and use samples of), but once I went through the initial pain of switching to BFD I never looked back.

Seeing as how you're still using the Z3 though, I presume investing more money in your rig is not an option and you'll want to make do with your TD-9 for a while longer.  One trick I used to do with my TD-20 was to assign different articulations to each hand.  I have a closed and an open HH trigger on each side of my Zendrum.  My right hand would use the tight closed bow sound (42 on the TD-9) and the open edge (26) while my left would use the closed edge (22) and open bow (46).  This gave me more variation and expressive abilities.
I still do essentially the same thing in BFD, however I use the velocity layer capabilities of the Z4 and ZenEdit to change articulations based on how hard or soft I'm striking.

Anyway, I hope that might give you some ideas for squeezing extra dynamics and expressiveness from your rig.

Greetings Tribe!  Wanted to solicit some opinions.

I'm running a TD-9 module as my main sound source, and I've noticed my hi-hats aren't quite doing it for me these days.  They feel a little too loud in the mix, too compressed (not getting as much dynamics as I'd like, all one level) and while the final product I'm hearing on tapes and such isn't BAD, I want it to be better.

I'm running the last gen operating system in my instrument, so setting individual trigger curves is not an option for me.  The other thing that occurs to me is perhaps to take down the hi-hats in my module's mixer but perhaps pitch them a little higher so they still cut through if I want them to?  Input is welcome; thank you kindly.
