I started to play 4 months ago. I live in an apartment so I can only play an electronic kit at the moment. I use an Alesis Turbo Mesh kit in combination with EZdrummer (MIDI) and, considering my current level, I can't complain about the gear I use. I'll switch to a better kit as soon as I'll...
I've been able to remap almost eveything using LoopBe1 in combination with EZdrummer. I succesfully created a new Pad in LoopBe1 to transform my hi-hat into a second bass drum, so I can play double bass. It works good, but sometimes I hear a hi-hat sound while playing and I think it's the...
I started playing drums on december 31st, 2020. I recorded this clip using an Alesis Turbo Mesh electronic Kit, Reaper and EZdrummer 2.
This is the drumless track I used:
Constructive criticism is appreciated.
I connected my Alesis Turbo Mesh Kit to my PC and I use it as a MIDI device. I mainly use EZdrummer to play, both the standalone version and the VST (with Reaper). Recently I've noticed that the MIDI signal get lost while I'm playing and I must restart the drums and/or the plugin in order to...

I've started playing drums around two months ago and I bought an Alesis Turbo Mesk kit. It has these kind of pedals:
They're just triggers with no "real" mechanical parts, but both work fine for me and I'm not planning to replace them.
I naturally developed the habit of playing both heel...
I own an Alesis Turbo Mesh electronic kit and I love playing it through my DAW (Reaper), using a drum plugin (MT Power Drum Kit is my favourite). I'd like to know which plugins offer different kits to choose from (think Rock, Jazz, Electronic etc.), because most of the plugins I've tried...
new drummer here.
I'm playing an Alesis Turbo Mesh kit since a month and everything seems to work fine. I never touched the heads and I'm curious about how to tune them. I've searched on many websites and YouTube but didn't find anything helpful. "Tune them until they sound good for you" or...
I want to be able to use my kit as a MIDI trigger for drum plugins, so I can change all the sets I want depending on the music.
I connected my Turbo Mesh to my PC using the proper cable. Windows recognized the kit without problems and installed drivers, but when I started REAPER and tried to...
I decided to join this community because 1) I'm a complete beginner and 2) many people on TalkBass (which is a lovely place btw) recommended me this place.
I'm from Rome, Italy. I'm a 42 years old multi-instrmentalist who loves music but never drummed before.
I've been a...
