I've hooked up hihats, ride and kick pads to it and seemed to work well. Then we can already play a lot with the factory settings that can be restored at any time and very facilement. A neat feature is Unison Mode, in which the BopPad functions as a single pad, with all four quadrants using the same settings. I can safely say, then, that the electronic drummer is exceptionally well catered for. Classic 808 and 909 sounds make an appearance alongside regular acoustic kits, brush kits and a number of electro and dance kits. Of course, editing just the volume, tuning and muffling of an instrument may well not be enough.
Wavedrum is more of an interactive v-drum. I play keyboard and guitar but always thought it would be cool to have an instrument to play with my fingers. I would consider the hpd 10 as well. Also liked the customize-ability of the sounds but would have been nice if I could load samples in it they have another product for samples so I guess that won't happen. It would seem that this has to be done one by one, as there is no bulk import option, but, fortunately, copying is pretty fast. Its a lot of fun. Generally better than the Korg Wavedrum, but honestly they have different enough sounds that you could have one of each and get a lot more options.
Each pad then has a send parameter so you can apply as little or as much ambience as you need to the individual instruments. Musical genre will be mixed. The Korg Wavedrum certainly comes to mind for this application and, having used one extensively, I can certainly vouch for it, but with a single drum head and limited editing capabilities it's not always easy to achieve a wide range of usable sounds. Has a lot of sounds I won't use, but it has a lot that I will and do! The aim is to ensure that both the sound and the way the instrument responds to your playing are as, er, natural as possible. High: By tapping on the top, it can trigger another sound. An attractive price for a perceived which does not disturb the neighbors or family, while having fun playing like congas, djembe, etc. I am looking forward to trying out the ezdrummer sounds with it, and making a recording.
An Exit button works as a 'backspace', stepping back through previous menu screens. That being said I havent played the wavedrum. Working with multiple modulation sources simultaneously can become quite confusing, and the Solo button lets you isolate each Modline as you edit, so that you only hear how that specific parameter is affecting your sound source. It has significant and quite complicated levels of editing all aspects of the sounds so you can tune the sounds to how you want them. So, anyone care to pitch me why I should get one or the other? For the pricepoint I had to give it a shot. I got rid of the Alesis because of the way it would not handle 2 hits at the same time.
It doesn't have all the bells and whistles of the Roland or Yamaha, and it has mixed reviews, but I've seen some customer demos on youtube that were impressive. I ended up getting the Korg Cliphit. The manual provided is pretty clear and not long to read and s address to a wide audience. Below the Main outs are the Trigger In and Hi-hat control sockets, where you can connect an external trigger input such as a drum pad or kick trigger and a pedal to control the opening and closing of hi-hat sounds. Value for money: it can not be better I think: an entire set of percussion instruments plus a set of percussion sounds or electro a handy and 500 euros for me as a percussionist I have a dozen at home and I have been much more is the dream. As already mentioned, the sensitivity is huge, in fact as sensitive as a real instrument as opposed to what has been said elsewhere, since the Wavedrum has a real skin and an audio sensor.
I'll be getting rid of it, too, as it's not quite what I want. The store knew next to nothing about their own inventory. In addition to the notes being sent by the quadrants, controller messages can also be assigned to each of these sources: continuous controller, poly aftertouch, channel pressure and pitch-bend. Nice guys but this is what drives people to the internet. I have a vdrum kit that I use most of the time and don't need the handsonic anymore. As far as a versatile writing and jamming tool I'd think the Handsonic would be better but adding a great intereactive percussion element to a stage setup would probably have the wavedrum coming out on top. More esoteric Wavedrum-style patches were easily achieved by combining ethereal pads and percussive voices with reverb and delay effects that changed as I moved around the BopPad surface or increased playing pressure.
However, I would probably not buy it again which is why I'm not really recommending it. I used this mode to turn the BopPad into a conventional electronic drum pad triggering a sampled snare drum. A further knob provides real-time control for the Pitch and Effect parameters, which are enabled via two dedicated backlit buttons. Even brush sweeps are picked up. I need some drums for the mix. Did you try many other models before getting this one? They also had a handsonic but it was the previous version, the hpf-15.
It was initially introduced in certain digital pianos, and then synths, and is designed to increase the realism of digitally emulated traditional instruments. It is an electronic drum that replicates the feel particularly well with a true percussion, especially for a game with your hands. Defective or damaged products must be reported to Austin Bazaar within 1 business day of delivery. Used it as a compact kit that way. Please read our before posting.
I have been using since July 2010 so a few months ago. This facility, in combination with the incredible instrument variations available, produces realistic and articulate kits. So it's a synthesizer, percussion and ca ca makes it a unique instrument. I use a number of percussion controllers and the BopPad offers playability, sensitivity and functionality to compare with any of them. The smart fabric technology is what makes this level of control possible in the BopPad by providing three modulation sources.
