You can get something close to a "cymbal swell" by lowering the attack setting...and lowering the decay settings a little bit. If i get a chance tonight i will upload what it sounds like....i will strike the cymbal a few times then take it into a swell.

Roland resets the start time of the strikes to cut off the attack sound when faster hits are detected. They use it on their snare also to help eliminate the "machine gunning" sound. It makes me wonder if Yamaha could do something along the lines of this on their cymbals. With a faster rate of strikes...make the sample start a little later in the waveform. I say that right????

From ATCMAN...

Looping WAV files-The answer!!!
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1.) Download the free .wav editing software here
http://www.yamahasynth.com/download/twe.html
2.) The open file window allows you to peruse .wav files and identify them as a loop (/ Loop /) or not (/ No Loop /).
3.) Open a file into the editor.
4.) Make certain that the Time Ruler is displayed.
5.) Trim the .wav as necessary.
6.) Select a point on the “Time Ruler” to set a loop point. In the Loop window press “Catch Loop Start” or “Catch Loop End” to set the desired points.
7.) Press the loop mode button.
8.) Save file.
9.) This file should now be identified as a “/ Loop /” in the open file window.

Hope this is useful.

Still learning,
ATCMAN

This tip is not rocket science, but its handy for those folks who love cymbals.

I have my kit setup bop style. Hence, I had two extra tom pads that needed a home. Well, because I love cymbal color more than tom color and don't want to purchase more pads, I setup one of my tom pads just above my single floor ( or right ) tom and to the right of my ride cymbal. Each rim is setup as a unique cymbal voice. There are many to choose from and you can create your own, or sample your favorite acoustic cymbals.

Imagine that... Three cymbals from one tom pad. Talk about a bargain. I'm dancing from one trigger to the next now creating killer cymbal variations. Life is good!

I would not give up my dtxtreme iis for the most killer of acoustic kits. NEVER!! The creative avenues this particular electronic kit has to offer are 100 fold greater than any acoustic kit can provide. I feel as if a whole new world has been opened up in the world of rhythm ( as opposed to just drumming ).

See pages 48-49 - in your manual - re: how to setup your cymbal voices.

Enjoy. Its just doesn't get any better than this.

For all the newbies, me included. When you are looking to do something with your kit try a search of this forum.

On the top you see the Search link, click there. Enter what you are looking for (the fewer the words the better information you will get back) and fill out the other fields necessary. Click search and you will get threads of topics that contain the word(s) you search.

This helps very much since there is over 1000 threads and 6000 posts.

Hope this helps some
Debbie
