    Whats the difference betweem the Alesis DM5 and the D4 modules?
    Can I record miced drums, then,run the signal from channels send to trigger the DM?

    The DM5 is newer .. and has more and different samples. I think it's 20 or 24 bit while the D4 is 16 bit.

    the DM5 is 18-bit, and the samplerate 48kHz. The most irritating thing with both modules, is the reverb attached to some of the samples! useless!

    I have a DM5 ...recording with an Ensonic ESQ1 (yeah I know - Ancient!) After putting together patches in a song, when the song gets to a new patch, the DM5 triggers to another drumset.... anyone got any ideas??? Can't use this thing if it gonna act like this....
    Halp! :cry:
