Both answers above are exactly right. Take a listen here, I took the multitrack for Chop Suey and separated out JUST the snare track. This is the same time in the song that you linked to in that Youtube video. You can very clearly hear when John Dolmayan switches to 8th notes on the hats:
HMX authored it 100% correctly.5
Just got my Alesis Nitro Kit and really like it. The only thing I don't like is the kit is set up to have the crash in the middle and the ride on the right. Can I use an extension cable to have the crash on the right?The great thing about e-drum kits is that each pad can be whatever you want. Want the crash to be the ride and vice versa? Switch the MIDI notes/sounds in the brain.
I currently have the cable for the crash in the ride and vice versa. I have this working properly in game, but I switched the midi notes to do so.
Drumeo has a good series, lots of videos on Youtube.
There's any number of tutorial series on Youtube for beginning drummers.Any you would recommend?
Any resources out there you real drummers would recommend to get me pointed in the right direction?There's any number of tutorial series on Youtube for beginning drummers. I would also highly suggest picking up a metronome and the book "Stick Control for the Snare Drummer". This is THE definitive book for any new drum student, and one that I used with every one of my students.
Another "Bible" of drumming is Progressive Steps to Syncopation for the Modern Drummer.
Take a look at this list. You can't go wrong with any of them:
You can also look into taking some drum lessons. Even if it's just for a few months, it'll teach you all the basics you need to then start teaching yourself more on your own.3
Just wondering what everyone is using to hold their cymbals on the ion set. I want to go PRO drums but I can't seem to find the mounting equipment I want to go with the Pintech cymbals. Any help would be awesomeCheck out the 4th post in this thread of mine from waaaaay back in 2008:
That 4th post has links to mounting arms, etc.1
Anti-Vibe sticks are great for e-drums with rubber pads. Not so much for mesh kits. Wouldn't suggest that at all.2
