I reviewed the Goedrum snare in the February edition and the HH controller in the November edition. I am testing the aD5 with the Goedrum hi-hat set-up and it's perfectly compatible.

Allan: would you be so kind as to explain how one can access the back issues since Aug 2015? Aside from current issue, nothing more recent than Aug '15 shows up when I click on "back issues".
Thank you.

This morning it hit me that NFUZD must be very, very, annoyed by the ATV aD5 launch. Reading a bit about the new kid on the block and eagerly waiting for the excellent Digital Drummer coverage I expect it will position itself on number 2 or 3 of the e-drums ranking. All we have to do now is wait for the launch of the 2Box3, maybe it was Bengst's cunning plan to wait till after the ATV launch.

Here a very short video from a russian guy or something playing it wiht a crappy td-3:

to me it sounds exactly like a TD-25, maybe the dude who left roland owned the td-25 patent and decided to do its own version, even the menus and typography are that of the Td-25 Module.

After frankfurt we will know more. I think 2box is introducing a cheap drumit3 along with a new super module. That's perhaps why Jerry's mouth is closed after those beer drinking with Bengt ;-)

Nice video from drumtec demoing the 5 kits included, sounds pretty good to me, except for some ghost notes not triggering..

no ghost note because the way to tweak the sensitivities to hide the hardest shots, you will end up missing sample volume in some case, or need to hit harder and some missing sound, remain the same issue 4 samples each instrument, now see this video start at 4:10 machine gunning galore

I started watching, and heard machine gunning immediately, about 30 seconds in. I skipped forward to 4mins as you suggested though. Yep. Not good.

Some time ago I listed the ATV D5 as an option for my second module but after watching lots of videos and reading the review in Digital Drummer magazine, I no longer won't. It seems like ATV has some demo sample packs with only 4 sounds on board and will sell the rest of it for money. If they ever will. Where.s the update, they promissed?
So I will wait for a better module to pair with my still beloved Drumit Five

If the module would had all kits already nears 30 kits would worth more, even with the limitation, but there is too much things missing, this is obvious rushed product to the market. But don't compare to 2box, it's another world, you can't beat importing sample and tons of layers capabilities.
