This guy is in the process of changing the game, entirely.
Yes, it only has 4 inputs (plus a hi-hat pedal controller input) but, you can use three separate units and get 12 total inputs. Each eDRUMin module is only $150 (that includes shipping). So, you get a 12-input v-drum module (split across 3 units) for $450. And… the dynamics, the configurations, the setups, the magic…. I watched all of this guy’s videos last week and was absolutely blown away.
These work for all pad types: Roland, Yamaha, Alesis, anything and everything. You can get dual-triggering from SINGLE-ZONE PADS, too (yes.)
And, the software is beautiful. Full-color, tweak anything insanely. You probably spend hours tweaking your Roland TD module, anyway… god knows I’ve spent DAYS of tweaking mine (TD-6, TD-6V, TD-3, TD-8, TD-12, TD-9…) But, this thing can basically automatically configure the settings for any trigger/pad type you select, and it works pretty damn great, even just configuring automatically, using the Calibrate function.
Yes, there are no sounds inside eDRUMin. Of course! The best and most realistic sounds come from drum sample software, anyway! I’ve been using Toontrack’s Superior Drummer since 2009 (when I first owned Superior 2.0). In December 2018, I upgraded to Superior Drummer 3.0.
I forgot to mention this: Every single input supports positional sensing (for center-mounted triggers), and also has bell sense (so you can get bell sounds from your ride cymbal samples– and yes, bell sense even works on the Roland CY-8!!!!), hotspot suppression, and more…. insane.
I finally bought one a few weeks ago. Rob sent it quickly and it arrived fast. I absolutely love it. Currently I’m only using it for my snare drum (a DDT MS-140c), to get 3 zones from the head, plus cross-stick on the rim (total: 4 zones)… but down the road, I plan on buying more eDRUMins. Unreal, how useful they are and how great they work.
Watch the vids…. proof is in the pudding.
