I don't use any but i've already spoken about this with one of my friend. Do you use any on your bass drum heads? Is it usefull? does it change anything? I don't know much about it...
ah ok i was just wondering cause we talked about that with a friend i has a weird sound on the cd we can hear like a tic tic tic tic if the drummer uses one... i wanted to have your opinion about thatFlatliner":23xjpkfa said:I don't use triggers, I can see situations where they would be appropriate, but I've never been in one where I needed them.
I think i'll try it one day cause it seems like it's good if you wanna have a proper kick sound. My friend said it was easier if you play with it (maybe because you don't have to hit that hard) but i think it's cool to use it to have a better sound... And easier or not... :? I think you have to hit the kickdrums anyway so...StranGeL":7yjme49q said:It took me a long time to finally try out triggers. I do use them sometimes now, but I never make that decision on which group I'm playing with (metal,jazz,hip-hop etc...)....I make that decision based on the sound engineer and the p.a system. I gig a lot, and often you run into some of the crappiest soundsystems with bad sound guys. By having the trigger all they have to do is turn the volume up. Also, when you play a venue that has a lot of bands that night, by having the trigger cuts your set-up time in half. Just plug and play. Like I said it depends on the situation. To the other reply, if you use a ddrum trigger with a vdrum module, you can adjust it to have a decent response for dynamics.
There is, and it is great!scepticILL":8f70eaus said:It would be great if there was a way to get some dynamics out of triggering...
The ball shocking is all well and good, but I would stay away from the probes.Rockula! said:I have my triggers hooked up to electrodes that shock my balls
That way, I don't go overboard with double bass
Just enough to make it pleasant but not so much that they become numb which defeats the purpose of shocking my balls in the first place
It's a midi signaldrummert2k":3inc6pn4 said:i trigger simply picks up the attack when you hit the head and sends the signal to a "brain" where you program what sound you want.
and that tic tic thing you heard on the cd could have been a metal kick pad on the kick drum, wooden or plastic beaters or even possibly the bass guitar. it may have also been a triggered bass drum or just an effect the added to the kick in the studio.
