Yeah, I read it
It's not old fashioned at all
There's only a middle aged man on the cover
New and old e-drums are published, and there is an article about amplification

Hi there,

I'm Allan and I'm the editor of digitalDrummer.
The first edition features articles on a range of topics:
* Pearl's entry into the e-drum market with its E-Pro Live kit.
* Yamaha's DTX-M12 is put through its paces in our first gear review.
* Meet Tom Roady, a pioneer of electronic percussion and a widely respected musician.
* Roland's TD-8 module is still sought-after, long after its withdrawal. We examine its ongoing appeal.
* Find out why Kit Toys disappeared - and if they'll be back.
* Who is Keith Raper? Meet the man behind the circuit.
* All that - and so much more - in the debut edition of digitalDrummer
The magazine is totally free. You simply need to register with an email and password - we need that so we can tell you when the next one goes live. You can unsubscribe at any time.
I'm hoping to have a full 2Box review in the second edition.
Come on over to www.digitaldrummermag.com (http://www.digitaldrummermag.com) - you'll find we're anything but old-fashioned. Cutting-edge publishing technology and a fresh approach to drumming and music journalism with some of the big names of the industry among our contributors.
See you there (and here!)

hope the magazine does well!

Hi Allen,

I like the idea of a magazine like this.
I only looked at the cover, I didn't read it yet.
It was first impression of the "looks" of the magazine.

I Still find that it could be more 2010 in combination with more tech looks.
BUT, it's only a detail. ;)
Title: Re: New E-drum Magazine
Post by: digitalDrummer on January 21, 2010, 10:17:22 PM
Thanks for the feedback. We'll certainly try and make it look as cutting-edge as possible.
The next cover will have Chester Thompson on it - ex-Genesis and Phil Collins. He's one impressive drummer and a big fan of electronics.

The Johnny Rabb edition was a promotional issue produced for market research. If you email me, I'll provide a link off-air.
And, by the way, to those critics who commented on the "old men" on the covers, I think Oli is on the right side of 40...
Enjoy
Allan

Your wish is my command. Right now, I have a 2box kit set up and in review mode, so all will be revealed in the May issue. Just one question for those of you with the kit: do you find the headphone output really soft? I'm not sure if it's the review kit or the settings (I have cranked everything up all the way), but I'm finding the headphone volume very quiet...
Title: Re: New E-drum Magazine
Post by: edtc on January 28, 2011, 12:47:48 AM
hello....

very quiet is surprising ... for some kits i  have to go up to eleven , but usually 3/4 is ok... i use DT770M 80ohm ... did you try to increase the gain settings on the triggers ?

what impedance are your headphones?
Title: Re: New E-drum Magazine
Post by: puttenvr on January 28, 2011, 07:37:05 AM
No, with a Sennheiser headphone it's even quite loud
Never go beyond 75% of the volume
Title: Re: New E-drum Magazine
Post by: hwasser on January 28, 2011, 11:10:17 AM
On my Beyerdynamic dt250 it is loud to, usually have the volume on 75-85%
Title: Re: New E-drum Magazine
Post by: digitalDrummer on January 28, 2011, 12:36:05 PM
I usually use Audio Technica ATH 910 Pros which are plenty loud with my TD-20, but very soft on the 2box. So I've tried some cheap Phillips headphones which are a bit better.
Now the learning curve begins...
Title: Re: New E-drum Magazine
Post by: fishmonkey on January 28, 2011, 12:41:04 PM
the ATH 910 Pros are only 40 Ohm impedance, and should be plenty loud enough with the 2 Box.

something is amiss...
Title: Re: New E-drum Magazine

No, 50 or max 75 percent works fine for me (Sennheiser CX 90 IEM).
Title: Re: New E-drum Magazine
Post by: Baby Samus on January 31, 2011, 07:00:44 PM
Same here, headphone output is very loud (too loud!) on max using both Audio Technica ATH-M50's (40 ohm roughly) and Legacy PH-250's (60 ohms) .  Remember output volume will depend on the ohm rating of your headphones - the higher the ohms the harder the headphones will be to drive.  If your headphones are 250/600 ohm then you'll need a headphone amp to boost the signal.

I'm not 100% up on things like this, but I'm sure the guys here will correct me if I'm wrong  :)

Hi there...

I signed up for your mag last week.....it's got some interesting stuff in there....

One question......downloading it.......it give you the save option, but thats it....it doesnt download in pdf....

Any ideas ?

thanks
Title: Re: New E-drum Magazine
Post by: puttenvr on February 01, 2011, 06:11:34 AM
As far as I remember you must first read it on screen and then SAVE WHOLE MAGAZINE
(or something like that)
Title: Re: New E-drum Magazine
Post by: 784cy on February 02, 2011, 07:08:15 PM
nope.....still can't download it...
Title: Re: New E-drum Magazine
Post by: 784cy on February 02, 2011, 07:25:40 PM
nope.....nope.....got it.......you have to go through the sample section !!!

Title: Re: New E-drum Magazine
Post by: digitalDrummer on February 14, 2011, 07:41:26 AM
Okay, there are two versions of the magazine - one which you can access without registering at www.issuu.com (this is sample) then there's the full issue at www.digitaldrummermag.com for which you have to register.
Once you've logged in an gone to the current edition, there is a "save" button. Once you've clicked that, you need to choose between "save entire magazine" or save selected pages". Just one warning - if you've saved a previous issues, the new magazine will over-write it. So you may want to go to the "print" menu and choose to print as a PDF.
If that doesn't work, send me a PM...
Title: Re: New E-drum Magazine
Post by: digitalDrummer on April 09, 2011, 01:40:11 AM
Just a quick heads-up that the 2box kit is reviewed in the May issue of www.digitalDrummemag.com (http://www.digitalDrummermag.com).
To make sure that you don't miss it, why not subscribe now (it's totally free) and you'll get an email telling you when the May issue goes live.
In the meanwhile, anyone who hasn't seen the magazine can check out all the back issues.

The new magazine with 2Box review is out now
http://www.digitaldrummermag.com/

(but the link loads the previous issue, not the magazine we want)
Title: Re: New E-drum Magazine
Post by: digitalDrummer on April 26, 2011, 03:30:51 AM
Hi guys,
There are two ways to access the magazine: one requires registration, the other doesn't. Both are free.
When you go to the home page, you can click on the "click here" box below the cover image to log in (or register, if you haven't already done so). Once you've registered and logged in, you get to the current issue (and access to all back issues in the interactive format).
The text alongside the cover image includes a link to a free "sampler" issue. This is posted simply to show what awaits if you register.
Why do you need to register? If you don't register, we can't alert you when the next issue goes live. If you had a subscription to a hard-copy magazine, you would need to provide a mailing address. In the same way, we need to be able to send you new editions.
We guarantee that log-in information will not be shared with any third parties. Neither will we use your email for anything other than to let you know when a new edition is live.
So, to read the current edition in full - including the 2box review, please visit www.digitaldrummermag.com, register or log in and enjoy.

And, by the way, the link to the sample issue should be correct - you may have to clear your cache if you have accessed it previously.
