Roland TM-2, Drum Triggers and Cords

Hi all,

I am looking into buying a Roland Tm-2 but am a little confused about which cords I need to get to make my intended trigger setup work.

I intend to use a Roland PD-8 Dual Drum pad, a mono snare trigger, and a mono bass drum trigger.

Even though the TM-2 only has 2 inputs, I am pretty sure I can achieve this setup by using some kind of splitter with the two mono triggers.

Can anyone tell me if this setup is possible and which cords I am going to need to make it happen?

Thanks for any info!

Using a pre-made drum beats by Toontrack

Hey Guys, I've always had cocky shoulder when it came to using other peoples drum beats and said to myself if Im going to make a song I will use my own drum beat. But just recently I tired using a pre-made drum beat in ToonTrack for a starting block for my piece and it sounds so much better than anything I could come up with. I feel like it's cheap and it's not fair. But music is music right?
What is your take on this?

Recording analog drum machines to Tascam Portastudio

Hi there,

I'd like to know if any of you have every tried recording analog drum machines onto a Tascam Portastudio?

I want to record a Korg Volca Beats to my Tascam Portastudio 414 mkii but no matter what I try there's feedback and the kick sounds very unstable.

Any help at all?
