Ok... I'm back ! And I am glad to be back! I was under the impression that life on the Zendrum forum was history. I am glad that the brains of the forum figured out how to keep us alive and kicking! With that being said, I am very proud to be a part of this amazing group of musicians. As we continue on our journey to use this magnificent instrument, and find the perfect samples and sounds to produce, there are many of you to be thankful to for continuing the evolutionary process that has made the Zendrum such a wonderful instrument to play. Firstly, Darin K. - Way to go! It took a fraction of the time for you to do what Inspector 109 has been trying to do ( and did not have the time or resources) for many years. A beautiful interface that allows Zendrummer to control their settings with great precision and ease. Great job! I also want to send a shout out to my great friend Rob Anderson, AKA Pocketmaster. You totaly rock! Thanks for all your guidance and expertise. You have helped my so much and I am grateful for that. To my friend Mike Campasso, AKA Thumper. Great fun hanging with you as well. Kim Daniel, my brother-- Bringing the heat! He did not know that he was the guy who put aside a special piece of wood (Figured Cherry) that he thought was special, and I agreed, and went with it. And for David Haney, the master creator, for making my Zendrum, a beautiful instrument that is essentially a piece of art. I wish all of you continued success with your music and hope that all the people who are fortunate enought to view this forum, are able to see how incredible the Zendrum family operates. It's good to be back!
