    Why isn’t this just the Roland Drum Workshop? Nothing is geared toward anything but Roland. Please, purchase multiple modules and use them to become a more overall intellectual on edrums. You’re not knowledgeable on paints by just using Crayola.

    Add me to the advanced list 😃

    Yes more settings tutorials for intermediate-advanced users. Please. This was still helpful though.

    I have a yamaha dtx 502 is the strike module worth the upgrade? Also will I have pad compatibility issues?

    I have a Roland td-20 that I adore but it is so old. So I got a td27 which I thought would do the same thing. Such as being a sound module. But luckily I have my older modules that I have great voices on that I can use for song backups background and such. I pretty much learned how to trick out the td27. I just download recordings of my older modules into the triggers rims by putting the "Song" where the sub instrument would be and selecting Switch instead of mix or fade. That’s the only alternative I can think of to lugging around a second module. Also I found out the dual voice capability from the factory settings are okay but my woofers started farting out from specifically the kick and could not be remedied by Ltd or comp. Then I realized my older Roland didn’t have dual voices. So I took out the dual voice on one of my factory kits and matched the settings from the older module that did not have dual voices and everything was A-OK. Dual voices have more of a benefit for things like snare and Tom’s but the kick was absolutely atrocious until I took out the sub instrument. So heads up people nobody tells ya things anymore. KEEP YOUR OLDER MODULES TD30,TD20. Someone decided they’re not needed. However, since Midi modules are no longer included, hold on to your old ones especially if you’re a programmer.

    You really should have a half million subscribers at least!
    This is the best edrum channel for sure, and there’s some good ones.
    In time maybe. Not everyone is an edrummer. 😉

    Great video dude. Personal needs are rarely discussed, only surface level tones.

  9. colinhudson on June 16, 2022 at 10:39 pm

    I’ve been playing every td module since the td10 came out and now so sad about what the td-50 module has changed. You really seem to know what you’re talking about all the little nuances I have dealt with dealing with each one.. Can you please let me know how to expand the sounds of my td-50 which seems so limited compared to my td-20 and td-30. Most importantly can you tell me how to have a genuine open hi hat sound on the td-50? Every kit on the td-50 has a slight closed hi hat sound, never a complete open sound. I called roland support and they couldn’t confirm or deny whether I knew what I was talking about. Please help! (And I bought a pearl mimic to try to solve it but now I’m in over my head)

    Great video Luke. Good explanations, contextually relevant, good delivery and not too long despite the amount of info.
    I did notice the hair wasn’t reaching for the stars though. Hope covid hasn’t affected the hair gel stocks in UK.

    What I hate is that I have not really heard any of the modern drum modules that I like the sound of. I have One ddrum2 and Three ddrum4 units. I still prefer these over everything else because they sound like real drums to me, while – for example – the Roland devices I have messed with all sounded really fake to me… like their sounds are targeting rappers, R&B, and dance bands rather than Rock and Metal drummers. (I use my own custom built eDrums.)

    I have a Millennium 750 and I can’t figure out how to trigger ez drummer to save my life lol I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong and I can’t seem to get any help from Millennium or toontrack

  13. iGodplus on June 16, 2022 at 10:46 pm

    I already knew all. that.. -___-

  14. RobbieGordon93 on June 16, 2022 at 11:00 pm

    Damn this popped up on my recommeneded and I’m so glad it did. I have a Roland TD-27. $3,000 and I don’t even know how to upload new kits or how to use these features. I subscribed and I will be watching more of your videos soon!

  15. Commando Hornet on June 16, 2022 at 11:02 pm

    This is a really useful video for me. Looking for my first kit and there’s no music stores open for obvious reasons. Came from facebook 🙂

  16. Mr. Tummy on June 16, 2022 at 11:03 pm

    Well done, especially your focus on identifying needs.

  17. RADER FPV on June 16, 2022 at 11:05 pm

    Outputs and Routing = Money, money and more money 🙁

  18. Diego Salinas on June 16, 2022 at 11:06 pm

    Great channel, appreciate all the great info. I’m just wondering how come the Yamaha hi hat in a see of Roland e cymbals? Just wondering I use Yamaha cymbals as well just wondering whats your take on that.

    Can you recommend me a modular model of a module that I could purchase separate pieces for? I’d like to start with just snare, hat and kick. I’m not sure which snare, hat and kick I want yet, but I figure it’d be better to start at the module. I would like it to work with MIDI, (through USB) and through my DAW. I’d like it to also be very accurate with the sensitivity. I think that I’d like to spend about $600 on the module itself; however, I’d gladly pay a couple hundred more if there’s a considerable reason to do so.
