So, I had a recording session yesterday with someone I used to work with a few years back. Congas, shakers, that kinda stuff. The only place I had all of the sounds I needed? The Zendrum.
So I show up to the studio, board and bag in hand. I unzipped the case to my pedalboad, the engineer ran my 1/4" output into a DI box, and that was it. Seriously, that was all the setup I had to do. I didn't even have to edit pitches, reverb, nothing! It was great.
Everyone at the session was amused and bemused at my instrument, but they loved what I was putting out on it. the engineer said it was great having a setup that was that easy; didn't have to deal with mics or anything.
I've said it time and again, I love my Zendrum.
