Roland td6 users... maybe any td users can help
« on: May 06, 2007, 10:00:48 AM »

Which "trigger type" do you use when setting up to use the Zendrum as your triggering device? I got a TD6 coming and I am reading the online manual and am curious about this setting.

...I don't think you'd need to mess with trigger-types for a Zendrum.  The Zendrum is a MIDI controller, not a direct trigger like one that would go into one of the module's inputs.  It's a different "language" they're using to talk to each other.  I think instead you'd have to look at the TD-6's MIDI parameters instead of the triggers.

Avast Thar Matey:

     Jaay is correct.  You would be hooking into the TD-6 MIDI ports.  From there you would set each trigger pad on the Zendrum to an appropriate MIDI note number that the TD-6 would recognize, then go through the process of tweaking each sound using the TD-6 editing features.
