there are a lot of new sounds, really good ones too.  Edcito has a reply here up with souncloud links showing the new kits.

installing the new os is easy. Mount the SD card on your computer, drag and drop the new OS.bin file onto the disk image, delete the older OS. thats it!

Okay, so first things first.

Correct trigger type for kick or snare.

Kick will be "Kick 1" or "Kick 2"

Snare will be "Pad12"

After that, set the correct gain setting. Hardest hits only register a 0db signal.

Now set threshold so lightest taps will trigger, set threshold just below that. Note on kicks, you probably won't want the lightest hits to trigger as in normal playing conditions you won't be so lightly playing the kick, so set threshold higher but enough so that all notes you play are triggered.

Curve, set to "norm" for now.

Turn crosstalk off for now.

How does it trigger now?

I never had issue with volume, the module kicks out plenty. I have always used IEM buds though, I can comment on the ones you have. I know I didn't like the Bose Headphones I had as a birthday present once. But I found even Apple iPhone headphones decent enough. I guess it depends on what you and I consider loud enough. There could be an impedance issue.

As far as I know, professional headphone have a different inpedence to walkman type of phones, it's to do with audio quality is higher, but as a result, the max volume tends to be lower (I hope I have got this right!) That's why studios tend to have dedicated headphone amplifiers.

There could a few things causing this, but it isn't the module, the module is super sensitive and can track the lightest hit to the hardest whack at any speed you could trow at it. Was it a whole kit you picked up or just the module?

I used it with a Jobeky 12" drum, centre cone with edge piezo and PadPS was the best trigger type for clean rimshots separation. I can't remember exactly how it was with PadPP but I remember not liking it, I think I was getting rim and edge simultaneously, which wasn't what I was after.

Is it on PadPS trigger type?

Is it at the tail end of the sample? If so, shorten the decay to suit.

What trigger pad are you using? Jman highly recommends his ISM6 trigger system, the videos demonstrating it would appear it's as good a trigger as there is.

I had a check out of the speed light kit today and had a play on it for a good few hours. Going from my pads to that is a bit of a adjustment due to the pad sizes, but after a while I found it okay, like I say adjustment.

The ride and crash cymbals although small, played lovely. Especially the ride, really clean separation from bell to bow to edge. And sensitive. You only have to tap the bell to register a trigger. Lovely rubber playing surface too! If they did these in larger sizes, say 16" crash, 18" ride etc I think ATV would have some competition.

The hihat also felt really nice to play but I was a bit disappointed it's a single zone pad. I wonder what the thinking it behind that? It uses the 2box trigger algorithm so I presume it works of the magnet system like the original. Apart from the single zone, it was very nice to play.

Out of the box I found the settings on the shy side, in other words, all the curves were set to POS1 or higher. I adjusted them to NORM and made some gain adjustments and I got it to play very natural.

The snare pad is great, small, but great. Again the separation between rimshot and center hits was clean.

The rack is adequate, but small! It looks like this kit is really aimed at kids to teenagers. If you were tall you'd struggle to get this high enough to accommodate ones playing.

The module of course needs no introduction.

Overall, I say it's a great kit, but not really something you'd feel confident to gig with.

I local shop to me has one in, I'll be checking out on Monday. Though I know what to expect, but more interested in the cymbals and hihat system they got going on. I hope it does well for them.

Roland vh11 is widely thought of as being a great set up. the atv one too but its a bit pricey.

I can confirm the cymbal swell algorithm on mimic works very well. That said, I never really had a problem with the wells on the 2box. However when being triggered by a pad which has a switch on the edge which requires a little force to be activated (if the switch is underneath the cymbal like on jobeky LV and Brass cymbals) a natural swell wasn’t possible. On the 2box cymbals it was fine for me. As they’re cymbals have prongs underneath the rubber surface but on the top of the plate so the lightest tap would give you edge trigger.
