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

Add to the question of hooking up 4 mic channels to a single compressor: I have a samson 16 channel mixer ( 8 mic inputs ) and a 4 channel compressor. I want to be able to use the compressor to compress 4...


Is there some reason you can't use one of you're aux sends for the compressor? You can then dial up as much compression as you want on each individual instrument. If you're determined to get the 4 mics into one compressor input.... Only thing I can think of is use TRS insert cables on the 4 mic channels - tie them all into one compressor input through a small patch bay or similar. Then bring your return from your comp to a 5th channel. Impedance matching is completely out the window so no promises on results.

I have the dm10 studio pro 2011 kit, and no matter how i store settings for priority, if the rim of tom 1 or 2 are struck at the same instant as the snare head, the snare does not sound. even if i set no...


Realize first that your "instant" is like eons to the electronics where billionths of a second count... This is an interesting set of symptoms. I would connect one of the other devices to one of the tom inputs and see if the snare acts the same using that devicee. Also try to characterize how much ahead or behind the snare hit the tom hit can occur and have both sound. This problem MAY be embedded in either the electronics or the firmware in the module. It could be an electrical noise issue or any of several other things. I want you to try this using ONLY headphones and NO amp... this is to isolate the possibility that the vibrations of the snare by the amp may be triggering anti-noise gate in the snare circuit. These are some more tests I want you to do the above and give me the results.

If i hit the ride bell, the tom 3 sound will come out also if i hit the crash bell, the tom 1 sound will come out also any idea how to fix it? many thanks


Is the 9ch snake cable correctly connected? TOM 3 should be plugged into the 4th input and TOM 1 should be plugged into the 2nd input. (1- SNARE, 2 -TOM, 3 -TOM, 4-TOM, 5-RIDE, 6-CRASH.........)

I have a new 1642 VLZ3. I have to turn the gain almost all the way up with all the mics and it still does not reach unity levels. What are the posible solutions or problems.


I would be surprised with all 16 mics active that you can't reach near a clipping level... Of course if you only have 8 mics active we would not expect to reach unity levels. Make sure this board is powered from the same receptacle as your amps. Powering it from building power at opposite ends of a room from where the amps are powered is asking for damage from ground bounce. The pros run a power back to the mixer alongside the snake.
Your trims will be fairly wide open for dynamic mics and your faders should be around unity during use. It is nice if the main fader can be around 50% or more. Use BALANCED lines everywhere including those running to the amps.

How do I connect my samson amp to my samson MDR10 mixer?


on the mixxer, use the "mix" "L" and "R" outputs. use 1/4 inch instrument cables, and connect the mox L and R to the amp's "channel 1" and "channel 2 inputs". always turn the mixing board on first, and the amp second- when turning off turn off the amp first, and turn off the mixer second. start with the mixer levels at the lowest, with the amp levels about 1/2 to 3/4 up. slowly raise the mixer channels first and then the mixer main volume until you have an adequate volume.

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!

What is the likely cause of the phantom power of a samson 900 mixer to go bad?


The phantom power is used for condenser mics. MAKE SURE you do not plug in other mics or devices that do NOT have balanced, isolated outputs as they will short out the phantom power to others.

You should find between 15 and 48 volts between BOTH pins 2 and 3 of each mic connector when measured to pin 1 of the connector. There is about 6K ohms impedance from the phantom supply to pins 2 and 3.

IF you have an accident and connected high voltage to pin 2 or 3 it COULD back up and blow the bypass cap for the 48 volts.

Please note: ALWAYS power ANY interconnected equipment from teh SAME receptacle to avoid damage due to ground bounce in the event of a fault in a piece of equipment.

You will need at least a 24 channel mixer to give you spare channels. You also need an active crossover and a snake. The advice you need is too much to include here so I am including some links:http://mixonline.com/live/FixIts/, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Live_sound_mixing, http://mixinglivesound.com/blog/tag/outdoor-concerts/,http://mixinglivesound.com/blog/, and http://www.scribd.com/doc/11435651/Beginners-Guide-to-Mixing-Sound. You may need more monitors than you are planning on and you might consider in ear monitoring.

Condenser microphones need phantom power (48V) to operate. Some condenser mics use batteries to work and get around using phantom power from an audio mixer. hope this helps

Electronic snare drum pad picking up tom tom triger signal ?


your right old and new technologies are all the same basic concept, a Piezoelectric transducer converts mechanical energy into an electrical pulse. Adjust/increase the cross talk (x-talk) setting on the module for your specific channel. this settings job is to disregard really small signals (ie. vibrations from the stand, other drums etc...), you may have to play the pad a little bit harder but it should work fine.
