DM10 MKII PRO KIT -- my little video
« on: October 27, 2017, 04:12:35 PM »
Hi all guys, long time no see...

Last August I bought one of the very first (if not THE first) DM10 MKII PRO KIT ever in Italy (that's where I live).
So, after a little toying, I found a way to shoot a short video of myself playing on a kinda-chill-out music base that I found (it was one of the demos of an "ancient" music software).
No effects -- just a basic mix of base and drums. The good news is that you can watch it in HD (1080p) and have a good sound, so if you have a good pair of headphones or speakers...
Needless to say, I'm very happy with my new toy -- very playable, sturdy and with great sounds. Less features than the "old" DM10, but you can read all the differences in their user manuals, correct?  ;)

OK, here's my 3 minutes of drums; hope you'll like it  ;)

Preparing for tonight's rehearsal as we speak!

I was kinda late to the game (e-drumming) and didn't really know what was going on in the marketplace. I got a DM10X Mesh kit jst before they disappeared from online stores, etc.,

I've had it almost a year now and just love it!

But I've been mostly busy playing gigs and rehearsing, with only an hour here, half-hour there, to work with it except for my initial few days to get it all set up for the first gig with it - which was when I designed my "Gig" kit in it.

It's gone through some changes here and there, but it's mostly still the same kit.

Well just recently I've had a little time to come to this forum and start digging around a bit - so I've been going to practice a half-hour early (I'd go earlier but the studio is always in use - so I can't) to experiment with the new knowledge I get from these fine folks.

As it turns out, I had my sensitivity, threshold, etc., settings all messed up. Now my kit is playing even better than the kit I had already fallen in love with! LOL

Anyway... just sharing some e-drum stories! LOL

It's super cold here in Wisconsin right now. Perfect time to get to my kit and rock out for a few hours! ;)

So it's been a few months since you've acquired this kit, how do you like it?

Seems like a silly question. It sounds really great in your video and, while the manual doesn't really elude to much about how great the module might be, but there's this thread: New Dm10 MarkII Pro Kit, where I noticed that you were actually waiting for this kit to be released so you could buy it - so I'm really glad you got one!

But I'm wondering if you have anything to share in regards to customizing the built-in sounds (voices) for the drums and cymbals, etc., that might help folk who are 'on-the-fence' as to whether they want to buy this kit, or to look at something else?

I noticed some cool new features (in the manual) like snares tension and some new stuff for cymbals and such. Did you play with that stuff at all or is that a preset right out of the box?

I know on my DM10X Mesh, I'm not using a preset, but built my own kit from the internal sounds right away, and I've been tweaking the kit every once in a while and, in the DM10 module, it's a lot of fun.

I just got mine last week and am still learning the best set up options. My first edrum kit.....So far so good, but have to learn to get the cymbal action to be closer to real ones.....any tips would be appreciated......
