  1. Yep, G1 coated snare. G2 Toms. Emad on batter bass. I’ve used Aquarius before too though, was nice. I think I had it on my Gretsch maple renown kit.

    I have used DrumTune Pro since that video was done.  Plus I use my ears :). That video was right after I initially got setup almost. There’s been lots of mucking around since.

    Funny story, never had a spring tension adjustment on previous hi-hat stands like one on DW3000, finally learned how to use it today. Hi-hat is much friendlier for foot action now… DOH..  :)


  2. Hi John, 


    I have 4 rode mics. Original NT2 from 1997. An NT2a, and now the NT55 pencil condensers. Love them all, highly recommend any Rode, great Aussie company, and the chap that owns Rode has been around music all his life, and his Dad.

  3. @Starship Krupa  I am very happy to leave things setup yes :). The Hendrix Bubinga kits sounds awesome. I have a 10 and 12 on my Yamaha Hex 2 rack along with all the cymbals, Paiste 2002 Big Beats, 15 inch hi-hat, combo crash ride, 18, 20 and 22 inch.  I then have a 14 and 16 on the floor. The Rototoms are awesome, and original Remo, picked them up for a great price, just needed new skins. I am trying to work out a way to mount them off my Hex rack or closer to a normal use scenario. I have had some nice comments on Jamulus with them so far, including I have them sounding like they are in the room with me, nice considering I am a TOTAL noob at X/Y mic technique. Thankfully others have helped me get it right.

    In the last 2 days I got a SM35 Shure headset with the inline preamp. First time using a condenser headset. Singing I can do, hearing myself in the Beyerdynamic DT100 at 400 ohms is challenging. I am driving them off a headphone amp, I get a better level from my SE425 Shure IEMs, but those lack bottom end of course.. what to do... 

    I need to change out my skins, I've got a full set of Evans G2 and a G1 snare skin ready. Since I made that video, on iPhone :), I have retuned ALL my drums and brought them lower and made sure I got closer to my normal sound I am used to. 

    Pedal wise, DW5000 single chain for bass drum and a DW3000 hi-hat stand.  Nicest investment after coming back to acoustic drums has definitely been the Yamaha HEX rack 2. Saves a TON of space too!.

    I'll make a new short video soon, I just think I'll change to those Evans first, I am not enamoured with the single ply that came on the kit.

    It's a tad confusing but I think I will get the Gold edition with my Composer Cloud X subscription. The website seems to want to persuade you to upgrade to plus and get platinum which would be overkill for my needs.

    As a Cloud X subscriber too, I was confused also, but it does seem to be included. To be honest though, I didn’t do the upgrade on NI Komplete Collectors this time. I was anticipating the upgrade on East West in May when my sub is due.

  5. A little sample, I actually have a D112 on Bass Drum and SM57 on snare btw. But this is just iPhone audio for a quick teaser I made. Loving the Bubinga!. Oh and, shattered one of those 5A Vic firths later that day lol. Wife says..  must have hit the drums the wrong way lol...

  6. Final piece of the puzzle came yesterday. 2 hours yesterday and 3 hours today on Jamulus so far. Mics all work great. Apollo Quad being fed with Unison preamps in play. Matched pair Rode NT55s with cardioid modules on.

  7. I decided not to just tack on to my throne thread. On Monday I said goodbye to my Roland TD17 KVX kit... and hello to this.

    Hendrix Bubinga 6 piece 2 up 2 down with Paiste Big beat cymbals mounted on a Yamaha hex stand setup. Last but not least I have a set of 6,8 and 10 original Remo Rototoms.

  8. I use Samsung evos and crucial mx500 SSD drives. Really can’t go wrong so far been fast and reliable. I do have a higher end nvme of some high end type as boot drive on the audio pc too. 2018 MacBook Pro has hard soldered nvme also I think. Once you’ve gone SSD whether it’s recalling sample (superior drummer 3) or audio, spinny disks are just dead slow. A spinny disk is still very large backup if you prefer local storage of course. Sometimes I do miss my old tape backup system lol...

    I have though about getting one to play guitar on.

    Any thoughts on that use?

    Definitely useable. Expensive but very comfortable.

    My upgrade price from 14 Pro was $99. I think that is a bit high for the new features, but not outrageous.

    I probably won't be using the remote or the audiobooks export. The new actions processing needs to be better visualized, but it is a start.

    I could have skipped this update, probably, and not missed much.

    But I do like to support a tool that I use so much.


    I have version 13 that came with the suite.. guess I am at stand still until they get desperate again ;)>

  11. My Studio One Pro 5.x has been doing duties as my mixing interface to Jamulus lately, not much else... I am really hating lock down more and more... when will it end?????

  12. This should have been a big deal. The end result was nothing and a 10k GBP bill for the  gear I recorded them with. Eric Haydock ( deceased) original bassist The Hollies, Peter Hughes and Mick Carroll Ritzi ( big hit with too much fandango in Australia), Graham Pollack and Mike Copson. Me kneeling in blue shirt. Middleton Manchester in my lounge 2000. 


  13. @Gswitz I actually have the EurekaProm 3.2 firmware in the FCB1010. It’s connected to the Eleven Rack. I then allow a loop in a patch and use the H9 app to control the 2 H9s on Bluetooth and the Timefactor on USB. It’s changed my whole approach to my electric guitars. And you’d be welcome,,,, hating locked down and locked out... :(
