Does anyone use a MIDI drum set (hooked up with USB)? I miss the feel of a real drum set (as opposed to sequencing or playing the drums on the keyboard keys). I would like to get a real one, but I don’t have the proper facilities to record or avoid problems with the authorities (live in an apartment lol). If anyone does, any suggestions on brand, model? Thanks! Hey, whatever method you have of recording drums or beats, share them! :) Thanks guys!

Hi Mate

I’m not a drummer myself, but as much as I heard around, ROland has some really good affordable nice E-Drums which will work perfect for triggering over USB/Midi.
At the moment I consider to buy such a drumkit too and the kit of my choice (for low budget but good quality) would be this: http://www.rolandmusik.ch/product03.asp?pID=1380&cID=19

If you spend some more money, of course you will get much better kit with mesh heads which are more natural to play than the rubber pads.

I recorded a drummer at his home with an older version of this one. Not bad. It can mess the midi signal sometimes ( you can get an extra snare with a cymbal hit ), but editing midi is not the biggest pain in the world.

A midi drum also causes some noise as a result of the pads being pounded and this noise will be really weird and meaningless for a neighbour. Just don’t record your drums at late night and I think you will not have problems ;)

Good Luck :)

I’ve tried both – midi drums are OK, but I feel that you need to spend loads to get a decent sense of playability. I ended up getting a real kit and I choose my times carefully and play it v. quietly. Can sound so much better than midi kit IMO, but is obviously loads more trouble to record and get a decent sound.
