ok...im contemplating buying the Roland TMC6 drum trigger converter, it has six trigger inputs...but only 1 MIDI OUT..and i have a MIDI IN on my Delta 1010, so...will this one MIDI input send all 6 trigger tracks into my computer as MIDI seperate tracks?

Feb 14, 2005 02:44 pm one midi port can handle 16 channels of data.
Feb 14, 2005 03:15 pm hot diggitty-dog! thats nuts...i like that alot..ha...are there any real disadvantages to triggering drums along with miking them?
Feb 14, 2005 03:17 pm just make sure the miked sound and the triggered sound comliment each other. And actually, you'd be surprised how often this is done :-)
Feb 14, 2005 04:33 pm well...when it comes down to like...drum rolls and whatnot...how exactly does this work? or doesnt it? cause i imagine it must be real difficult for the trigger to pick up each individual hit...ya know? and also...where would i go about getting the sounds id like to have triggered? or am i just better off making them myself?

8 drum pads connected directly into your 1010?
You won't have to waste any money on a TMC6.
Feb 15, 2005 12:28 am is this just as good as doing it the other way? like...no loss of quality?
Feb 15, 2005 12:29 am and will triggers work? or are triggers pads?
Feb 15, 2005 12:23 pm yeah kiss your ghost notes and soft rolls good bye, then only triger i've ever seen that can handle it is the mesh heads from roland...triggers are just pads that basically send MIDI info to a drum module (brain) and that "triggers" the brain to play the sound.
Feb 15, 2005 07:41 pm Yes, if not better, because it has many adjustments,

and it will work with mounted triggers and drumpads.
If you mean "loss of quality" of triggering,
then the answer is definately NO.
