No media came with the unit, just the brain, stereo jacks to connect pads to brain.

Connecting a USB lets you see the file structure in Windows.... The samples are quite good, but depending if you're not moving the kit about a lot, get BFD and install that on a laptop or PC... or choose the best BFD samples and load them on the unit. I will be testing this once I move my kit up to the loft....

Yeah noticed that! infact the sensor "died" for a short while until I rebooted the brain... it's all fine now!

I can't understand why the sensor for the kick is central and all the others are on the rim?

I think the manual needs to be a lot clearer, yes it blatantly says don't kick in middle, but in all honesty how many people read instruction manuals?

Apart from that - still no issues...

Does anyone know when 'spare parts' will become available - I mean extra pads and cymbals etc....

I assume it says in the manual to avoid hitting the centre of the pad? Otherwise there could be a lot of people complaining about broken bass drums.

Will have to doublecheck, but don't think it does!

Hi NeilC

I would advise against hitting it there, as that is where the sensor resides. You could cause damage to it.

Thanks

Avoid hitting the padding? Phew good, cos I changed it to the centre....

Yeah so do I on my acoustic kit, but i just wonderd why this 'padding' is there? ie are we meant to hit it on the padding or centrally?

Hi guys, I have a question about the kick drum. If you look at the attached pic, the dark blue rectangle shape is like extra padding underneath the batter mesh, i assumed that this is where it's best played, so I set it up for there (which was naturally where my beaters were set up for the acoustic kit) and I thought OK. I played on the kit for a while and though hmmm the kick is a bit week compared to the rest of the kit, I then got my stick and hit various parts of the kick, and where the light blue circle is gave a masive increase in sample and sounded much better, so where is the correct place to play the kick?

Any ideas, or thoughts?

Had mine on order for about a year! haha.

I know they only got 5 in stock and I was top of list... So dunno if they have any more?

Hmmm, I know what you mean by the HH. To be honest, I haven't played about with it TOO much as still been tweaking the physical aspects of the kit. But closed, open, foot all sound awesome. The half open is a bit of a no goer for me, but I do need to set the HH stand up a bit better.

Can you alter the tension on the HH do you know?

Hi all, just thought I would get involved with this forum as beeing a fully fledged user...

A few pointers:

It will take a couple hours to set up, I found the manual slightly unhelpful, but all the same better than nothing
Make sure you calibrate the HH. I didn't and I thought it was the worst e-HH ever, but not so if calibrated.
The stand is very light, and very sturdy. I'm a very hard hitter and this will suit me fine!
The sounds are good - not had chance to play with them, but I will be using BFD to practice through etc.
The USB to PC connection is rEALLY slow so copying your own drumless .wavs will take time and not always 100% accurate.
The kit is very playable.

I am VERY impressed with this kit. I bought it as my Pearl kit is in our practice room and cant always go and hit when I want, this enables me to...

All in all I cannot fault this kit!
