My name's Hans Van Even, I'm merely a guitar play and need an edrum for recording drummers at my home for my upcoming project (I use Toontrack SD2 for all my drum sounds, so the edrum is used as a trigger). That said, I'm not new to edrums, a few years ago I had the Roland TD6KX set, which was cool, but I wasn't 100% satisfied with it (pads too small, hard to get rim shots done, same for bells on the cymbals etc) so sold it. Now I really need a new setup and have some questions on the new Alesis DM10PRO.
1. How does it compares to other edrums like Roland and Yamaha ? I'm also interested in the Yamaha DTXplorer iV special or the discontinued DTXtreme III ... do the pads trigger well, no delays, no latency ?
2. Is the rack solid enough to welcome one additional pad and cymbal
3. How do the rims work on the snare, is the pad large enough for this ?
4. Is it a problem for a drummer to have this type of HH or is a real pedal type HH like on the Roland or Yamaha drums better ?
Thanks so much for the input!
