I think you'll be fine with the drums and cymbals, only the hihat will not be usable. Unless you're willing do some surgery on a cable. The Efnote used a multipin connector within that there's the power supply for the optical sensor and also the piezo/switch terminals.

I don't know for certain, but if the Efnote hihat is Roland compatible then the Zourman conversion module should work.

Cheers!

Hi, does anyone know how compatible the mkII module is with the Efnote 5 pads and cymbals. I was thinking of getting the mkII and using it with my Efnote but someone told me the hi hat would not be compatible.

Wonderful words fitting to such a great man. Most of us never met him but when definitely knew his name. He was a huge force in this forum and in edrum circles on the whole. I never come on here and not think of him. Sorely missed by all.

hey thanks for checking it out. Yeah I really thought I was being thorough when I made these. But clearly I missed a few things. If I had a module to try these out for myself I wouldn't have missed a lot of these "over-sights" but there you go.

From the site description and price, you'd think you hit the Holy Grail of a sample package!

Quote from: welshsteve on May 06, 2023, 08:40:08 AMBut off the top of my head, all layers on the processed 22 x 18" have a small silence on them. The unprocessed one seems fine.

Being the curious type I downloaded these and took a peek and yes there is silence at the head of some of the layers for that kick. For "kicks" I manually edited the layers to remove the silence at the start of each layer (adding it back to the end to maintain the layer boundary) and adjusted the layer length to the last non-zero sample. Here is the result; https://www.dropbox.com/s/zklw84d5nl0nt94/22%20x%2018%20SCM%20%28cleaned%29.dsnd?dl=0

I notice that with the unprocessed dsnd file the layers are each about 0.7sec long (reasonable but could be shorter, 0.5 is plenty) but that the processed wavs and dsnd layers are a full 2 seconds, leaving a lot of dead weight below -60db for the module to play out for each hit and undoubtedly affecting performance.

Have a look/listen.

Cheers!

I'm currently recording a jazz tune and went through these samples once more in order to maybe create a set of toms for it. These samples really suck. I was being too nice in my original post.

I had to visit their site again to see if this crap is still for sale. Indeed it is.
17 bots... I mean users have given it 5 stars too. This is criminal.

I should have made a list of the sounds with issues, as there are a few. But off the top of my head, all layers on the processed 22 x 18" have a small silence on them. The unprocessed one seems fine.

One of the 12 x 8 toms has at least one bad layer. One of the hihats has a dead layer (just a silence)

On the good hihat, I should strip some of the layers away (as it was chock with them) on its own it good and I am happy with it. It's only when you start doing anything a little complex with hihat foot stomps do you hear latency with some snare notes. I feel this is because it's trying to play to many layers. Swap it for a "stock" 2 box hihat and it stops.

That aside, I do need to remix the ride and one of the crashes as they sound distinctively different than the rest. This is what happens when they're done at different times without a decent method to hear them, rookie error.

There may have been others but that's what I can remember.
