Drumagog Homemade Trigger Drum Kit I am not a drummer. I just make nerdy stuff.
My own (DIY) build electronic drum This is a video of me, to show the electronic drum that i have build myself, using an Alesis D4 drumbrain and my laptop with Groove agent. If you want to know how i build it, instructions are on www.plancheeproductions.tk Please don't look at my playing style, the video is 4 years old and i was just starting out...;-)

Tosin Abasi 7 string slapping This is a quick demo of some Wooten-esque slapping ideas i've been messing around with. Still a work in progress! I'm using my LACS Ibanez 7 string on this one... (piezo magnetic blend) Enjoi

DIY Drum Trigger Here is a video I made of how to make a drum trigger for under $5.00!!!! you can get all of these parts from radioshack. all u need is a piezo and a 1/4 inch jack. please comment and let me know if this helps. PS I KNOW THE MUSIC IS TOO LOUD IM SORRY! but it is not that hard to do just solder the piezo to the jack and thats it. I will also be posting one on axis ekit triggers! soon

Chickenbone News for 2011 Here's an offshoot of a project I'm doing with Park View Business & Enterprise School in Birmingham, making guitars in a day with 12 year olds...I'm doing of 5 sessions...and I 'tweaked' my prototype guitar kit a test-bed 'mule' to develop a few ideas. This is the first time I've combined magnetic and piezo pickups..and I've got another one on the go to try out some other ideas for combining pickups without having to resort to expensive preamps.
DIY Electronic drums DC Trigger Test This video goes with a post over at called "Trigger Without A Piezo!" Here is the URL: The video basically shows how a battery and a potentiometer can trigger the different pressures normally triggered by a piezo element in a drum module. In the post "Trigger Without A Piezo!" I have a diagram showing a practical triggering device based on this experiment. The diagram is well detailed so a DIY'er can build one him or herself. To view the diagram go to:

Using practice kit to trigger MDrummer in Reaper The latency is very low (4ms) so no problems even with using a reverb plugin on the snare (Onmiverb) and a compressor on the buss out (Density MkII - yet another excellent Bootsie freebie) in real-time! I've found that I can practice for hours now without getting bored - the sound is great and very natural to play. The trigger settings on the drum-kit are modified to achieve this. You may notice that a velocity layer has been added in MDrummer too on the ride cymbal so that when hit hard it's another crash. Also I've modified the snare layers some what (using 4 multi-layer samples) so that it's not always triggering the rim-shot sound, only when hit hard. MDrummer in my opinion is extremely versatile to use. Especially in editing your own kit sounds. Levels are a little hot and it did take some work making the kit feel right by tinkering with DTXpress trigger settings, but its been well worth it. I'm considering using it live when I can get a decent soundcard for the laptop. Reaper templates and the MDrummer kit setup are in a zip file for download on my blog: (note: you'll need to set up MDrummer for 4 stereo channel output)
Ambient Clean with MusicMan JP6 A neat sound I found while playing with Sonar, Guitar Rig, and some other plugins. Guitar is set to blend the piezo and the middle position of the magnetics. Piezo run into it's own channel separate from the magnetics, with. No Guitar Rig on piezo. Effects used: Guitar rig 3 Sonitus:fx Delay Glaceverb
Piezo Trigger Early stage of my electronic midi biscuit tin drum. Programmed the chip (16f628) to count the amount of hits on the 'drum' and display it on LEDs.
