Hey Everybody. Here are the first audio samples of the TRS Core Library which comes with every ZENDRIVE. This is three of the 16 drumkits.

We're having WAY too much fun here!

Enjoy!

Thanx!

Avast Thar Inspector,

      Several more questions have come into me mind.  What kind of monitor is shown in the photos?  Is it touch screen?  What kind of video interface be provided since ye don't provide a monitor?  Can the ESata hard drives be mounted internally?

Thanks Pyrate,

The monitor shown is just a generic 17" you can get anywhere these days.
I took the stand off so it would pack in a shoulder bag, and I keep it stashed behind the seat of the truck just in case I ever have to diagnose a problem. You can use whatever monitor you like.
So far, I haven't used a monitor anywhere but in the studio because Zendrive has been glitch free out on my gigs.
The 16 Zendrum Set Up notemaps are where the drumkit assignments take place and are instantly available.
The Battery macro screen keeps all the drums active and ready to play in the 96 cells.
The separate audio outputs allow for post mixing, effects, and eq.

Our aim was to get clean, fast analog out of the Zendrive and into a mixer/amplifier without fragile control surfaces and finicky complex software editing steps being used for onstage work environments. Certainly, you can do that but it makes more sense to create and edit at home and keep the OS "Zendrum simple" for live. It's just a computer with all the usual connections there. I've got vent panels on both sides of the rack for keeping it cool. You remove the 1U vent under the 1U patch panel to access them with any standard monitor, keyboard, mouse, usb, etc.

Yes, I'm sure we could figure out how to mount eSATA drives inside the rack. It might involve a larger case (3U) to do so.  My thought was that it would be safer to pack an external separately and keep the spinning drives away from roadies with handtrucks. It also means that you can easily add whatever eSATA drive you want if it stays external. Didn't you say you already had a TB you could use?

I'll build it to your specs if need be, just like the Jolly Roger.
Thanks for asking these questions.

David,

Will this run OSX/Logic? It sounds like it may be a DOS computer platform(?) I would need this to be cross compatible with a MacBook Pro (my studio machine).


Thanks,

Hey CCJ,
I believe so, and we're about to start testing with several platform/build variations to prove it first before I say YES.
Stay tuned... :)

Take care, here there be dragons.  Apple is notoriously draconian (not to mention aggressive) when it comes to third-party resellers.   ::)

Avast Thar Inspector,

     Thanks for the replies.   Now I be starting to get some ideas.  Since the Zendrive has usb ports available, perhaps it be possible to connect an Apple IPad or Macbook Air and control the battery interface that way.  Aye agree with ye that editing the soundmaps at home be preferable to on stage. It keeps sounding better all the time. Aye know that Zendrumdude is a big fan after talking to him last week.

HI Dave, congrast on your new system.  I was curious as to what operating system it uses seeing it supports batt3 and bfd? Also, as far as the playing speed, the ssd makes it faster to play than a sata drive?

thanks
