Well, it took 2 days, but I got the power steering fixed, the oil changed, and all the brakes replaced on the van.  Tomorrow it's the brakes on the car.  And then all the plow truck work...  ???

Now this is secret stuff but , if you don't tell I wont.

Just Wes and I farting around and I still can't play the drums.  :P
Wes is playing a Jackson JS2 4string
With all the crap I've got here you'd think i'd manage a better recording  :-[ but , oh well the wav is 24bit. If you like the mp3 you can download the wav and noodle with it.

err , there's probably a few of us here that one ear that works halfway anyhow.

Making a new template for our own use in the Reaper. Getting close to have to buy a new license. Just got the drum mics tied back in. Two MXL 991's overhead and
a Gear One MK1000 on the bass drum.

Just got a Analog -to- Digital converter , will be checking it out tomorrow. OCD got the best of me , I should be able to track 16 channels with the  Tascam US1800 now  :-X (still works good)

I've been using a couple Dell GX780 mini tower's for personal use and really like them.  All things come to he who waits?  So now I have two more. Cool running Core 2 duo e8400 cpu's (two are e8600) , 8gb ddr3 ram in each , Nvidia NVS 300 graphics cards (18watts) , Card readers in the floppy bays.  A couple have Intel ssd's system drives , couple have WD 500gb RE drives. Couple run W8.1 ,couple run W10.

I'm tired so the AD converter will get a testing tomorrow.  https://www.ebay.com/itm/Musou-RCA-Analog-to-Digital-Optical-Toslink-Coaxial-Audio-Converter-Adapter/303142392436?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649

The little AD box works great  Time to find where I put that little Behringer 802 mixer  (-!)

I've got the littlest cheap RCA wire I could find carrying a strong clean digital signal.  I'll have to get my crimp tool out and make a few more 75ohm cables with RCA ends.

 I read somewhere that 75ohm cable makes great RCA cables even for analog  ;)
I also have a little DA converter box so I should be able send one to the other. Someone that does DJ stuff could make use of a pair of AD -to- DA boxes.  Trying to use a wireless router in a unknown venue could test Murphy's Law.  :P

Thanks Joom , need a DI on the bass DI  ;) Wes was using the distortion feature but , he was hooked to the amp via the thru jack.  :P  My fault  :-[

A lot more used to get accomplished with , right handed cigarettes and coffee.   :-X

Had a lot of bleed on the bass into the drums , gonna move the bass amp. Give Chris the whole end of the room , I just had the drums set out of the way.   The room is 12.5 x 21'  after living in a trailer for years and still in that same shape room in a house. lol
Having a good drummer in the house gives me happy feet.  These kids are on the same page for a change.

That is insanely cheap for a mesh kit.....I’ve been looking around a little and the Alesis Nitro mesh kit is $500 up here....this one is $276 at Musicians friend.....

Think the Alesis has a few more features though....chokable cymbals and whatnot.... but this might be worth a closer look since I’m not and never will be a “drummer” lol

For something to mess about with the price is certainly right.....
Looking forward to hearing what you think of it once it arrives  :D

Correction: That must have been a special sale price yesterday - today’s price $414......
For an extra $86 I’d go with the Alesis.....if I ever get permission to get a set  ;D  ;D

These have single zone pads so I'm not expecting too much.
   I had a midi drum brain years ago and played around with making pads/triggers. 
To justify getting it , I'm coming up with all kinds reasons.  :P

1. It weighs a fraction of the kit I have.

2. It's quiet and might get a gig at the local Perry Como fan club annual picnic.

3. When the kids practice here I wear Micky Mouse ears (muffs) it's really loud.

4. It comes with a set of sticks

5. I have a extra throne

6. It was stupid deal of the day $199.99 , I'm Stupid  :-X it called to me.

The Alesis Nitro 8pc kit has a dual zone snare  8) $349. at GC here. 
The neat thing with midi is you can change the instrument after your done. Play and trigger sequences real time in performance. Change the kit at different points in a song via the sequence.
