Problem with MixerInputs

I use my 1010 to record my drums, and I have the snare and the bass drum mics in the 2 XLRinputs. When I use the Maudio Monitor mixer, I try to lower the Input fadder, os that the recorded audio wont clipp. But even as I drag the fadder to the bottom, there is no change on the meter. it still shows a soundlevel which that peaks everytime i hit a snare or bass. How do I solve this?

    Is this the only way to lower the gain? I havent changed the Jumpersetup, and the manual says that the default setting is for low gain, the non phantom power one.

I have pretty much the same setup, as in snare and bass into the xlrs. You can change the physical jumper positions on the sound card, to give you a lower gain, as in mic/line (details in the manual) This lowers the input gain. Unfortunately, this can sometimes be too low. It's one or the other.

I am going to buy an electronic keyboard for my kids, maybe with a drum set etc too. Are there any makes that people can recommend that I look for?

I always buy Yamaha or Casio when it comes to electronic keyboards for kids. I think their products are well made but also are more affordable than some of the more professionally aimed products.

Every time i hit the bass drum i hear a click along with the bass drum sound...i cant figure out where it is coming from

Unplug all the other triggers and see if it is in the mechanics of the kick mechanism. If not, then one at a time plug in the other triggers till you find one that is causing it. Could even be the bass when amplified is triggerin lightly the rim of the snare for instance.

You can not play these drums live the spill of the fold back drum fill bin sets of the snare trigger ive turned down the sens on the red box still doesnt work a big waste of money i need to talk to...

With this kit being acoustic-electric, the only advice I can give is to disconnect your snare trigger and mic the snare. It's either that, or your snare trigger is faulty. A new trigger is going to cost about the same as mics, but mics won't hit your snare, making you sound inexperienced. For miking the snare, you'll want to get two mics, placed on the top and bottom head. Try to position them on the same spot on the rim to avoid voicing problems. Studio drummers do the same thing when recording.

For playing this way live, you'll want to use either the main PA, or run to a separate mixer so you can control the volume of the snare in relation to the rest of the kit.

Hope that helps!

Every time i hit it anywhere on the front the snares shake, whats wrong?

Absolutely NOTHING is wrong. The snare drum resonates. The only solution is to NOT let th snare drum "hear" the Cajon... This is a common problem... Other instruments can also trigger the snares... SOME people add clearance of the snares to the drum to avoid some of the problem.

Hello, I hope you can help. I have been using my akgd112 mic for my kick for about 1 1/2 years and now I notice that when I hit the drum hard the sound is distorted. I always store the mic in a pouch and...

Get the Caig Labs connector chemical cleaner kit and clean up the XLR connectors. Test a different mic cable as well. If it is not the connectors that are the problem, you have a damaged diaphragm. That mic will handle very high SPL's, but if you put it on a snare drum or guitar amp at high volume you may have toasted it. AKG service dept. will fix it for a fee.

Seperate tracks

They have to be recorded on SEPERATE tracks if you want to keep them seperate. It will be hard to do this live as if you mic acoustics you will still get some cross feed in the mics from the different percussions.

With an electronic drum set it may be even harder as they often only have a single mixed output.

The way the professionals would do this is to play the kick and record it on a track... and then play that track back and record the snare and hat each seperately on other tracks.

Once you have synced tracks of the parts, then you can mix anyway you want.

With electronic drums you COULD have two seperate modules to give you two seperate outputs, but that is a budget breaker.

Go check out these pictures, and there is some good info about micing up your drums. :) Recording it is then a case of getting levels good for a start by worling your way around the kit one drum at a time setting the level for that drum. a bit of nice reverb in the mix and out come you drums.... whoooohhooooo
