Off to NAMM
« on: January 16, 2012, 08:59:38 PM »

The industry showcase begins in LA on Thursday and I'll be there to cover the event for digitalDrummer. Expect new offerings from Roland and also some news from Pearl about ePro. Alas, no Zendrum presence, from my understanding.  I'll be checking out all the electronic percussion-related stands, so watch this space.
And if anyone else will be there, give me a yell.

Hey DD!
Zendrum won't have a booth at NAMM, but you will see several Zendrummers working there.
Safe travels!

I will have mine with me at the Yamaha booth.  That is in the Marriott hotel.

Hi John,
hope you are having a fun time.

If you have a chance could you plug your Zendrum into a Yamaha DTX700 module and let me know how you get on. Very impressed with it in a Dublin store. Is there a MIDI note map for the DTX700?

 ie can you program sounds onto any MIDI note per setup or are you  restricted to just the "Pad" MIDI notes, 16 or so triggers per drumset? Looks to be a nice small format module with 64mB of Sampling on a USB Stick.

Other options may be DM10 or 2box (but it is restricted to I think 16 sounds per drumset)

Cheers
Mick

Hi Mick, you can indeed connect the Zendrum to the DTX700 - I have done this and yes, ther are some good sounds in the 700.
By the way, caught up with John at the show - as you'll see in the February digitalDrummer, out in a few days.

The DTX700 is a cool little box.  You can't get variable hat unless you use the actual trigger input, but we got along for years without that.

The sounds are fine, but I use mine a little differently.  It has the ability to instal 64MB of sample data.  I was able to get one of my kits down to that size and it plays well.  It is not as cool as using BFD2, but still decent.  I have one for outside gigs.  I play a jazz brunch at a popular place.  We play outside most of the year and they have us under a tree that leaks really sticky sap.  When the tree is leaking bad, Or the rain is coming in I sometimes use the DatX700 with my sample set.

Cheers,
John

BTW, nice to meet you Allen.

I'll let you know the next time I am set to play.  It is at Ram's Head.

Cheers!
