Hey Darin,

I agree with Jer's comments. I am willing to pay for it. I am also willing to be a beta site if you need one. I am interested in knowing how this GUI will be able to interface with ALL the software  programs and modules that are available to us. Also, the compatability issues with computers, ie, Windows 7 vs Vista etc. I am excited to see how this works out. You Rock !!

Well done, DrumWagon!
I played the videos for someone who came by to drop off his ZX for a Z4 retrofit.
His first word upon hearing how many extra features he could access- "Incredible!"
We're all very impressed here with what you've created.
All Z4 owners should get ZenEdit to realize the full potential of the new engine.

Drum Wagon can you post the steps on how we hook up our Zendrum and computer to be able to transfer what we edit. This would be helpful to those of us that are computer challenged. Thanks for doing this it will be a Great asset to the Zendrumming community. Thumper

There is now a new forum space specifically for discussing the ZenEdit, as this thing has amazing potential to redefine Zendrumming and all Q&A for it should be easy to find.

Head over to the ZenEdit board and give some posts.

Oh, and DrumWagon has moderator control there in addition to me.  This will allow him to move posts out of that forum and such in case they truly don't apply, lock threads and create stickies.

Nice going !!!! This is AWESOME !!! Thank you for doing this. I will be purchasing and downloading it on Thursday night. Can you discuss what the diffrence is using your interface with a Z4 vs a non Z4 Zendrum. ( I have one of each and need to rationalize getting the other one upgraded.)

Thanks,

Mark

Thanks Mark, I really appreciate the kind words.

I guess it's worth doubly pointing out that ZenEdit will ONLY work with 4.0 boards.   It cannot interpret data from a 3.x board.

For a 3.x Zendrum, you can probably still use Mokugyo (http://zendrum.com/resource-site/zmokug.htm).  I believe (but someone correct me if I'm wrong) that Geosphere wrote that app.  It's sort of a one-trick-pony in that it only allows you to change note values, and only speaks general MIDI, but it does what it does well and I myself used to use it before I upgraded my board.

ZenEdit of course goes much farther than that.  On just comparing that one feature (changing notes) ZenEdit brings to the table:
  • Can use note names from GM, your module or your software
  • Can display melodic note names.
  • Can set values for all 4 crossfade points.

And of course that's not to mention all the other features it exposes, such as fine tuning the calibration for each trigger by setting the noise floor and velocity curve.  So in that sense, they are apples and oranges.

Yeah, the Mokugyo was mine and it should still work with the z3.  But really, with the new ZenEdit, its really such a feature set of the z4 that it just blows away any prior efforts.  Its worth it to upgrade if for nothing else than being able to use the ZenEdit.  Seriously.
