Does anyone know if there are any modern devices that do the same thing as the Roland SD-35 MIDI player? It was a great piece of hardware for playing general MIDI files. If not, what is the best way to play GM files via a Windows laptop with a good quality sound module?
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!
I have an 08 dual xeon Mac Pro running Pro Tools 10.3.1-ish.
I use the Mbox Pro as an interface bc, well, I think it's alright, and I'm not large enough to need a rack mount.
Using Roland TD-11's, running the 1/4" to 1/4" into channels 1 and 2 of the Mbox Pro, cranking the gains on it, cranking the gain on the armed track, and the volume of the TD-11's is still low. It's not peaking anywhere, it's just too low no matter how much you gain up.
The hi hat abrupt close is a bit of a sore thumb, being too loud, and quickly decaying/choking too obviously. Tone that back a bit, smooth it out, and man.
The ability to tune the enviornment and ambience is downright amazing.
The Fairchild is the only one in Australia located at Studios 301 in Sydney, my home town, and undoubtedly the greatest city in the world...;)
The link takes you to the Studios 301 site which has a request download link button to download the sample pack.
These samples were put together by the team at Studios 301 & Liveschool.
I've used them before for headphone monitoring etc. The manual states 0DBu nominal level, so I suppose this is under line level 4 dbu.
