Quick demo of an often forgotten Roland digital drum module. With nice & crunchy (I’m guessing 12 bit) PCM samples, Roland entered the electronic drum market with the DDR30. While limited with only kick, snare and 4 toms, the DDR-30 offers several sound samples for each drum (including acoustic, Simmons-style electronic and timpanis) and many options for tailoring the sounds to your needs with pitch, amp envelope & EQ. It can also serve as a pad-to-MIDI converter for triggering other MIDI instrumennts.
In this demo, I go through the 32 drum kits that were stored in this module (not sure if they’re factory kits or not) while being triggered by a rhythm pattern on my Roland Fantom X6. It might be hard to hear on your crap-top speakers, but this module really kicks. I think Infomation Society used one on their eponymous album – I’d have to check my copy of the CD+G that has their equipment list.

Buy here… http://www.nevadamusic.co.uk/drums/electronic/alesis-dm6-usb-electronic-drum-kit The Alesis DM6 USB Electronic Drum Kit features realistic, natural-feeling playing surfaces, to reduce vibration feedback, Alesis selected natural rubber drum and cymbal surfaces for the DM6 USB Kit’s pads. This five-piece kit gets you started on a dual-zone snare pad for dual-sound compatibility so for example you can assign a snare drum sound in the centre of the drum and a rim click, rimshot, or something totally different like a cowbell on the rim ..
The DM6 USB Kit also comes with three tom pads, an upright kick drum pad, hi-hat, crash, and ride cymbal pads. Alesis have included their own bass drum pedal and the kick pad is compatible with any single or double bass drum pedal that would suit your own personal feel.
Withe the Alesis DM6 USB the user can edit and save customised sound drum kits and in all there are 10 pre-sets and 5 customisable memory patches. In addition to the sounds in the DM6 module, there’s a USB output that sends the notes you play out as MIDI signal, so you can use the DM6 as a trigger-to-MIDI interface with drum-module software such as BFD, Toontrack, or Reason for an alternative collection of sounds.
The DM6 has headphone and amplifier outputs so you can play undisturbed using the phones or connect up to an amplified audio source and rock out, there’s also the ability to connect an iPod or CD player and mix it in with the DM6′s stereo input jack. The DM6 module has a metronome, an essential tool for keeping steady time whether you’re practicing alone or with a band, additionally the Alesis DM6 USB also has a built-in sequencer with 40 pre-set music tracks for play along to.
The DM6 USB Kit mounts onto a heavy-duty aluminum rack and the standard 1 1/2″ tubing enables you to expand and grow the kit with Alesis’s own and other brands’ clamps and mounts. The kit also comes with a full set of mounting hardware and cables, as well as rugged kick drum and hi-hat pedals.

This is EZDrummer in the VPT (Virtual Percussion Technology)system with an RET Percussion drum kit. RET recently contacted me to do a series of VPT videos to show how Easy and Awesome VPT really is. Here, we’re using EZDrummer, but any combination using great software samples of your choice is also cool.
I was literally setup and playing/recording in ONE HOUR! Not only was I very impressed by how quick and comfortabe I felt using this system, but the sounds!
I can’t even begin to describe how well these samples are recorded!
If you’re not familiar with software samples: They are ACTUAL recordings of ACTUAL drums like Tama – DW – Pearl – Mapex – Orange County – GMS – Yamaha – and Many others! Now, I can play an RET kit that feels acoustic, with the same look and sound of an acoustic! It beats using a module sound, hands down.
This truly is the future of drumming.
As always, please leave a comment or send me a personal message. I understand if these messages include massive amounts of exclamation points… this is HUGE!!!!!!!
Cheers to all, and keep on rockin’!!!

A compilation we put together of all Yamaha’s DTX 500 video’s.
The Yamaha DTX520K Electronic Drum Kit gives you the feel and playability of real acoustic drums and the DTX520K has undergone some clever re-design features to make this electronic kit as real as it can possibly get.
The DTX520K uses a DTX-PAD for the snare to give you an authentic stick response and the ability to play open/closed rim shots whilst the Hi-Hat system features a dual-zone trigger pad (for edge and bow sounds). Also, the kit comes with Yamaha’s professional 3-zone cymbal pads which can express a different sound in each of the cup, bow and edge zones featuring a good stick feel and low acoustic noise.
The DTX500 Drum Trigger Module includes Yamaha’s high quality tone generator for realistic acoustic drums, with details like velocity-switching samples (which changes the type of sampled sound as you play harder). The DTX500 gives you 50 preset kits from a wide range of music styles and also allows the user to select their favourite sounds and create custom user kits. You even have the ability to add digital reverb effects and master EQ to sweeten your sound and for extra realistic response the DTX500 Module uses digital sound technology derived from the MOTIF ES synthesizer.
The DTX520K can easily be expanded by up to four additional pads if you need more toms, cymbals, or a double-bass configuration. The Yamaha DTX520K includes the following items :-
DTX500 Module, XP80 Snare, 2 x TP65 Toms, TP65 Floor Tom, KP65 Bass Drum, PCY100 + HH65 Hi-Hat, PCY100 Crash Cymbal, PCY135 Ride Cymbal, RS500 Rack.
The DTX500K Electronic Drum Kit from Yamaha has had major feature updates to provide an even more realistic drumming experience. The DTX500K uses a DTX-PAD for the snare to give you an authentic stick response and the ability to play open/closed rim shots.
The DTX500K features a hi-hat system that uses a remote hi-hat pedal controller (included with the kit) and trigger pad to provide realistic hi-hat expression. The pedal and pad can be located anywhere around the kit, much like the popular remote cable hi-hat systems for acoustic drums. Moreover, the hi-hat can express various styles of play such as open/close position, closed pedal and foot splash. You can even play tip and edge voices for adding subtle nuances to the beat …
The DTX500 Drum Trigger Module completes the feature range of this amazingly realistic kit whilst Yamaha’s high quality tone generator provides realistic acoustic drums, with details like velocity-switching samples (that switches between a range of samples as you play harder or softer). The DTX500 gives you 50 preset kits from a wide range of music styles. Select your favourite sounds and create custom user kits. Add digital reverb effects and master EQ to sweeten your sound. The DTX500 Module used digital sound technology derived from the MOTIF ES synthesizer.
Unlike some other electronic drum kits, the DTX500K even comes supplied with a Yamaha bass drum pedal! The DTX500K can easily be expanded by up to four additional pads if you need more toms, cymbals, or a double-bass configuration. Check out the Yamaha DTX500K on your next visit to the Nevada Music Warehouse …
