tarrtime's review"Great e-drum trigger converter"

Roland TD-3 Module
I purchased the Roland TD-3 module as part of the TD-3 e-drum kit. I have been really happy with out the module has working for the past several years. In my set up, I have e-drum trigger pads that go into the TD-3. Then I use the module to turn the trigger information into MIDI notes. I use the MIDI out from the TD-3 to go into my DAW interface to record my drum performances.
It took a while to get the module set up to trigger correctly with the pads. Things like pad sensitivity and threshold need to be set based on how hard the drummer hits the pads. The TD-3 is not the most intuitive interface for making this changes. I had to look through the manual to figure out how it works. Since then, I haven't had any problems with incorrect triggering or cross-talk or anything.
My opinion is that the drum sample sounds in the TD-3 are unusable. They basically suffer from the "machine gun" effect where every drum it sounds the same. This makes the drums sound fake. My recommendation would be to use e-drums to trigger a drum sampler on a computer (superior drummer, BFD2, Steven Slate Drums 4, addictive drums, NI Studio Drummer, etc.) rather than using a drum module. This way you will have a much better sounding drum performance than using the stock sounds in the TD-3.
The TD-3 has lasted me for many years, and I fully expect it to last for many more years. It is made of plastic which does seem to be a little less reliable that a solid metal chassis. Nonetheless, if you take good care of it, I doubt that it will break.

I use it for two years is more than enough to begin soon but the main sound compared to TD6 no songs recorded with midi sound rotten it is useless also play as a rim shot mp3 it can connect Liser opinion contrary to the docs guys! I adore this thing and indeed the TD9 too expensive and still full of his songs draw! decide!

fun exercises to do but a teacher will be better!

Roland TD-3 Module
I use the Roland TD-3 for 3 years.

The material is strong enough and durable. The rack is light. The set takes up little space.
The cymbals include three areas of play the snare drum is equipped with a solid mesh. The bass drum pad accepts the game to double, if the sensitivity is increased (ie, fewer possible shades.)
The trainings are one and the most notable plays are wide. The manual is very comprehensive.
The snare drum rim shot includes the (not always accurate), but not the cross stick. The hi-hat pedal lack of precision, power and above all does that sound closed. The module suffers from some usability (volume control on the back, buttons + / - to the changes, information display weak and cold.)

It should be noted that the GC pedal is not included. In terms of sounds, the module is very neutral: some percussion sounds profitable; kits "acoustic" sound mediocre, but was fun sounds with electro and r 'n b. If the drums have a wide option, that's not really the case for the cymbals (one without a splash and a single-edged china convincing.)

To conclude, I consider the ratio q / p is reasonable in relation to the supply. But I think the growth in sales of e-drums will wake up in the market and bring down prices.

Roland TD-3 Module
I use it for 2 ½ years
Practice to play in the apartment, convenient to plug in a PC, a key MP3 or iPod to play over the music or compositions. Click to play practice.
on the other hand, no rimshot, it's frustrating. Charley's foot hard enough to control does not really improve his play or work of Charley. The sounds in general are a little bit in terms of intensity, despite the settings refined + Possible nonplus not possible to work intensities.
In terms of spatial configuration, being very compact, unaccustomed to an acoustic and can create unpleasant surprises when they return to acoustic.
Good value for money, and again, I would reiterate the same, but to choose, I much prefer an acoustic

Roland TD-3 Module
MODEL is the entry level in the v-SERIES td drums. He has 32 drum kits, entries for the kick, the snare, 3 toms, 3 cymbals, 1 hihat + controller. It is equipped with a midi in and midi out one (it does not support nanmoins song position, select, clock, etc.)..

basically, it can serve three things (well I see it as a car I did that for three days - nanmoins, dj I know by heart the device - say it is false not very complicated. And the manual is clear enough so ...

Then three things:
1. converter pulse give noon
2. Kits V-Drums
3. exercise of precision and with the coach mode endurence

Well, do exercises, I do not know I have not test ...
Sounds are unfortunately a cry, the reverb (room) intgre does not catch anything. I vote no trs what I can do with it, personally, it is cold (even cold at times), horribly empty, finally it has little prt such that all modules of range). Otherwise, it's a pad converter / triggers - noon (Channel 10) trs well, it is even better than the product ddi at the same manufacturer (TMC-6), slightly less expensive (like 30 euros) and with only 6 inputs (!) against 9 for the TD3 and therefore no sound. So yes ok, sounds shit on this MODEL, but hey ca can always TFW dpanner time a track live sampler if the pte? (No, that's absurd! ) Say they can train on vacation with without having to take the computer or sampler. It dbrouille both trigger A drumkit that religious pads, the rglages are enough (curve Veloci level, pan, sensitivity type, the options that liminent vibration, etc.. ..) of course we must always adapt qand we move on pad or skins but hey you can muffle all the same just adjust the module's game, or rather, the sensitivity of the module has its sensitivity.

So it is not bad, not too expensive, a little plastoc all of the same sounds and with zero. However it 9 between pad / trigger and many rglages.
