Scoox wrote:Personally I find skins very distracting and pointless. Skins are one of the reasons I dislike REAPER: waaaay too many options. Also, no skins means that people identify the particular look and feel with the product, which is good from a marketing perspective.

IMO there is absolutely nothing wrong with the current color scheme, once you use it long enough grows on you.

Perhaps add some basic GUI color and brightness options a-la-Cubendo.



ya, been using it a for a couple years now. still hasn't grown on me.

I partly agree that skins can be distracting for some. i personally would probably never mess with them. I just would like to see color options. something like DP did on their last release.

ha... i do the same thing. i can't type as fast as i can think so half the time any help i offer is pretty half assed. fortunately we have others here that have our backs. well, at least they have the backs of the OPs.

I totally agree. Thank god S1 is stable and offers me the workflow needed to get things done, otherwise i'd be out. I honestly can not stand the look of S1 right now. it's terribly boring and uninspiring. i mean, grey and blue? c'mon now.....

no really though, a huge plus 1 for skins! word!

Very well built, and they do not fatigue through time.

Not sure with the PadKontrol but If you want to emulate the drums a bit more, you could also get a basic foot switch and use that as a left hi-hat switch. Several Alesis drum modules do this really well. I have a Alesis D4.

If space is a concern, you can use drum sticks with a Roland Pad. I don't think I could give higher marks for a drum product than my Roland Octapad II. It's been an awesome device for years for me. It may be the only electronic device besides some guitars I own that actually went up in resale value than what I originally paid for it. You get to use sticks, assign the pads and virtually have a kit in a very small space.

Just a thought.

Btw, I like the looks of the PadKontrol a lot! I have not had success with pad controllers



Funny, i actually bought an Alesis control pad a couple years ago so i could play with sticks. It was a second hand unit from some shop on ebay. only problem was the usb port on the back was loose and wouldn't hold a connection so i returned it and went the padkontrol route. I really like the feel of the padkontrol a lot. great little tool.

The octapad would be awesome. i bet i'd love it, it's a bit out of my price range though at the moment. I've also got my eye on the new Roland TR-8. I've always wanted a solid hardware drum machine and that thing is a beast.

I probably should have mentioned that as I am a drummer, i don't in fact have a real kit at the moment , or else i would just record that.

I like the look of the FATpedal. looks like what i'm looking for. Alesis makes a DMPad but that ships without the pedal or beater

i think the roland is exactly what i'm looking for. just a bit pricey for me at the moment. think i'll keep my eye out for more of the FATpedal.

thanks guys.


that yamaha KU100 looks okay too. for $70 it could be worth a shot.

yeah, not clear at all. I'd almost pick up the saturn next week if it was 40% off $174

I love Fabfilters stuff but always thought it was a bit too pricey for my budget. Where do you see that they're 40% off?

damn... Saturn really does look quite awesome
Studio One General Discussion » decent kick drum trigger for padkontrol? » Go to message
So, i'm looking for some feedback from some people using any similar products and their experiences with them. In short, i have a Padkontrol and would really like to incorporate a kick drum trigger with it. I'm a drummer so i don't really program drums well when i have to use my finger to program the kick. i'd really like to have that on the floor so it'd feel just a tad more real while i'm pounding out beats on this little pad. I know i would be best off picking up a V-drum kit but at the moment i just don't have the space for that . The roland kt-10 looks pretty awesome but that's also like $200. I'll spend the money if i have to but just wanted to see if any of you have found a cheaper reliable solution.

an internet connection is still a luxury although most everyone has it. but if something requires it to function at all... not my cup of tea.



gotcha... ya, i wouldn't be too happy with that either. thank god none of my vst's or plugs require that!

are you referring to AD? you don't need to be online to use it.
