    Complete Newb question

    Just ASIO drivers for your sound card. I would also highly recommend heading over to the Presonus forums. They have a good community over there. All of these DAW programs take a bit of patients and learning to get your head around. They are all very involved to say the least. The forum over...

    Complete Newb question

    I've used Studio One for 4-5 years now after being a cakewalk user for about 20 years. I really like Studio One. It comes with a robust set of plugins as a part of S1, actually enough to do full production. I also use Izotope's plugins, Ozone, Nectar, and Neutron, but really you could do...

    Complete Newb question

    Protools is quite possibly the least user friendly DAW you'll find. Cakewalk is a good option, as is Reaper and Studio One Pro. Cakewalk is free, Reaper is $60, and Studio One Pro is a bit higher. As for video editing, take a look at Powerdirector, it's about the most full featured at a...

    Best Real Feel, Tunable Elect. Drums

    Thanks for that input Tommy. I agree that they are just different things, acoustic vs electronic. These days I mostly use my ekit to play in quieter situations where an acoustic kit is too loud. I know a number of "one man band" guys who play guitar and sing, some times they like a drummer that...

    Newcomer to Electronic Drums. Looking for Advice!

    Yes for that price range, the drumit 3 is possibly the best option. You can add your own samples and also pull samples from vst modules like Addictive Drums 2 to create really great sounding kits. gabo

    Best Real Feel, Tunable Elect. Drums

    While I totally agree with Tommy's statement, there is one error. You don't HAVE to use the Yamaha module to run them. There are other modules that support the Yamaha pads, specifically the 2box drumit 3 and drumit 5 mk2 work well with the yamaha pads. There may be other modules as well. Not...

    Trick Pro 1-V or DW Control beater?

    Thanks for that Stretch. Knowing Trick products, I'm sure it's really great, and I've read several reviews stating how good it is. But I've likewise read equally good things about the DW, so we'll see. gabo

    Trick Pro 1-V or DW Control beater?

    Thanks Hop, that's good info and those look like great options as well. However, after reading the long article and considering what you guys have said, I purchased the DW control XL. It'll be a few days before it arrives, but I'll post my review when I get it. Thanks, gabo

    Trick Pro 1-V or DW Control beater?

    Thanks for that review, I had not found that one!! Thanks for that, I did not realize the Trick didn't have weight adjustments. That, along with the $12 might just the deciding factor vs the DW. For the most part I've always stuck with the hard felt, although it's more out of habit than...

    Trick Pro 1-V or DW Control beater?

    I'll have to go look at that one. I'm not tied to anything, those to came up because of being able to easily adjust them for flat and square contact on the head, plus the adjustable weights to dial in what you like. Flat and square contact sounds better and also doesn't wear out heads as fast...

    Trick Pro 1-V or DW Control beater?

    Looking for a new beater, I've always used whatever came with the pedal and have generally used Pearl pedals. But looking for an upgrade. The Trick Pro 1-V beater and the DW control beater look very similar. The DW is about $12 cheaper. Anyone have experience with both of these? Or maybe...

    Noble & Cooley 14x7 Classic Maple

    Yes, mine does have cast hoops. I actually prefer cast hoops, but I understand liking triple flange as well. I can't imagine my Supraphonic with cast hoops :) gabo

    Noble & Cooley 14x7 Classic Maple

    Here's my 1991 N&C SS 14x7. Easily one of, best snares I own. I have several custom made stave snares that are equal, but none better. As others have said, it retains tuning better than just about anything I own. It also is very versatile, sounds great tuned way down low for that "fat snare" or...

    Experiences with daVille Drumworks shells?

    Late to the party, but yes Daville's shell's are really great. I have two of them. A word of caution, for any stave shell prior to putting the rims/hardware on. DON"T DROP IT, especially on a concrete floor! Below is a picture of what that does, I reassembled the broken shell and it's the...

    *SOLD* Ddrum4 Module for Sale

    Thanks for that MG. Yes it is interesting that they had some things that still aren't done in any other module. The latency is also a big key, only in the past couple of years have other manufactures come close to or equal to the latency of these units. They are so low that besting them is...
