Funny we have a lot of the same gear and are trying to do the same thing. Are you in a band or what? I'd like to hear the context you are using this in
always best to check the profile. here's my tunes: brainwashaudio - purveyors of fine auditory distractions
i started playing in bands about 18 years ago. i'm operating more like a studio than a band these days. lost interest in holding a solid lineup together. i do have a steady stream of musicians i've known & worked with over the years who continue to come by & play when they can. so i record whoever comes over & splice jams with various other recordings & piece my songs together as they come.
i played a standup electronic drum kit live about 10 years back
. simmons hex pads, d4, triggers, plexiglass, metal, ect...
i picked up the esi32 for samples when i was doing live shows in '04 to support my most recent "release". i've got a tama kit @ the house i been using to record drums but i'd like to expand the kit into the electronic realm. lots of other distractions though so it's kind of on the back burner.
ultimately i'd like it to be a hybrid kit with electronic drums & live mic-ed brass.
with the option to replace any electronic or acoustic piece as i like. custom samples & the classic stock sounds from the d4. i've got a roland kd7 for kick, looking to pick up a pintech mesh head snare, triggers for tom like noises/sounds (might replace them w/ rubber pads, octapad or drumkat @ some point), & the zildjian, pastie, sabian cymbals
i have for brass. i hate electronic cymbals.
