Expanding the Roland TD-11


Recommended Posts

Jag tänkte dela med mig av lite skamlös reklam för ett antal artiklar som jag skrivit om mitt eget hobbyprojekt, nämligen mitt lilla hemmastudiobygge.

In my first article, I try to summarize the best knowledge on acoustic treatment for hobby studios. In the second article, I unlock the secrets on expanding the Roland TD-11 entry-level electronic drum kit.

Expanding an entry-level electronic drum kit is hard, but not impossible using creative thinking. In a series of articles I will describe how to convert a Roland TD-11 kit into a Neil Peart sized kit.

I’m a hobby drummer since several years, having owned three different kits.

With a move pending from a house to a condo, I recently replaced my old TAMA Swingstar kit with an electronic Roland kit.

I wanted to be able to expand the kit, but didn’t have the €7.000 for a TD-30KV V-Drum Pro Set. So I had to compromise and read up on the alternatives. Eventually, I settled for a TD-11K for €1.000. Quite far from my dream kit, but realistic.

So, what about extensions? Having downloaded the manuals for the kit beforehand, I knew it had an unused crash 2 input that could be used used for a third cymbal or fourth pad.

Quite immediately, I added a dedicated 3-zone CY-13R Ride cymbal and a MDY-25 boom, using the original ride cymbal as a secondary crash in the crash 2 input.

At this point, the kit was maxed out in terms of inputs. But, there are some hidden gems in the TD-11 module. Read the full article and related articles on my webpage, and you'll find out how to add even more cymbals and cowbells without spending a penny on extra hardware!

      På årets NAMM visar Roland upp sin nya syntmotor ZEN-Core som gör att kompatibla Roland-hårdvaror kan använda sig av samma ljud, men också flytta dem mellan de olika hårdvarorna. Har du exempelvis gjort ett ljud på en Fantom, kan du kopiera det till en kollega som använder en Jupiter X.
      ZEN-Core ser till att både ljudkvalitet, karaktär och uttryck bli enhetligt mellan de olika hårdvarorna. ZEN-Core kommer kunna användas på Fantom 6, 7 och 8, Jupiter X, RD-88 Stage Piano samt grooveboxarna MC101 och MC707.
      Uppdateringen kommer i slutet av januari 2020.

      Hej!
       
      Jag funderar på att skaffa en hemmastudio. Vill gärna pyssla med att göra låtar, sjunga samt spela gitarr. Har gjort en del forskning på produkter samt tittat på massor av Youtube videos. Då det fortfarande inte känns så lätt att bestämma sig bland en värld av produkter så tyckte jag att det skulle vara smartare att höra av mig till er kunniga.
       
      Jag skulle därför uppskatta att få er rådgivning , om förslag på en studio kondensor mikrofonpaket med stativ och reflektionsfilter, ett ljudkort, en keyboard samt hörlurar. Har redan ett par monitorer av märket Yamaha HS 80M, samt en laptop av märket ASUS med Processor: 1,7 GHz, och RAM-minne: 6,00 GB.
       
      Har själv kommit fram till att följande mikrofon Rode NT1 samt ljudkort Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 3rd Gen, och keyboard av märket Alesis Vl49 kan vara några alternativ att starta med, men vet inte om det går att använda dessa produkter tillsammans efter synkorisering av deras drivrutiner och mjukvaror?
       
      Har även haft en Audio Fast Track C400 som inte gick att använda efter installation på min tidigare Windows 7. Fick höra att jag saknade Flash player av en tidigare version, vilket gjorde mig förvirrad och frustrerad eftersom jag inte är så teknisk, så nu vill jag testa nyare ljudkort med förhoppning om att det ska fungera.
       
      Tar gärna emot er råd om vilken mjukvara (DAW) ni rekommenderar som fri och premium version, samt vilka keyboard som passar dessa DAW:s?
       
      Tack på förhand!
       
      Med vänlig hälsning!

      PRESSRELEASE
      Hamamatsu, Japan, September 5, 2019 — Roland, a leading manufacturer and distributor of electronic musical instruments and professional video products, unveils the MC-707 and MC-101 GROOVEBOXES, two self-contained production tools designed for today’s electronic music creators. These powerful products reintroduce Roland’s iconic GROOVEBOX concept to a new generation of musicians, updated with the very latest sounds and a wide range of customization options. With the versatile MC-707 and MC-101, users can create complete, polished productions with no external gear or easily integrate with modern computer-based music environments.
       

      MC-101 & MC-707
      In 1996, Roland launched the original MC-303 GROOVEBOX to great acclaim, and the popular series evolved with many additional MC models over the next decade. Building on workflows introduced with genre-defining Roland instruments like the TR-808, TR-909, and TB-303, the GROOVEBOX series allowed people without musical training—but with keen musical sensibilities—to create songs quickly and easily, and in some cases, these individuals gave rise to entirely new musical genres and styles. The MC-707 and MC-101 fuse this landmark concept with today’s advanced technologies, giving electronic-focused musicians more creative power than ever before.
      The MC-707 GROOVEBOX offers everything needed to create a song or perform a live set without a computer. Users can immerse themselves in eight-track recording, sequencing, sampling, synthesizers, and studio-grade effects, plus a curated palette of sounds, loops, and phrases. Audio and MIDI can be recorded with deep control over timing, while hands-on faders and knobs inspire in-the-moment creativity.
       


       
      Equipped with Roland's latest sound engine, the MC-707 has all the sounds of legendary Roland rhythm machines and synthesizers, but also looks forward with modern digital and hybrid sounds. The eight-track sequencer is optimized for fluid production of today's electronic-focused music styles, with 16 ultra-sensitive pads for playing or sequencing drum parts, melodic basslines, or polyphonic chord progressions. There’s also a TR-REC step sequencer inherited from Roland’s classic drum machines, perfect for building rhythm parts quickly.
      With its advanced USB audio interface capabilities, the MC-707 easily flows in and out of any computer production setup. Users can record all eight parts to individual DAW tracks and finish a song there, or sample sounds from a DAW to capture backing tracks, stems, and more for live shows.
      The MC-101 GROOVEBOX has all the high-quality sounds, sequencing, and effects of the MC-707, but in a more compact four-track version that’s go-everywhere portable. This professional production tool features a solid-yet-light design and runs for up to five hours on four AA batteries, allowing users to craft sounds, create drum patterns, and compose musical phrases just about anywhere.
