Question Alesis DM5 drum module and Ddrum Pro Triggers?


Who on this site has used this combination for triggering your acoustic set and do you like this combo? Any input would be great as I am looking to purchase both for live performances.

In my opinion, that is one of the best combinations around, and has been for some time.

I was using the Alesis Dm5 with ddrum pro triggers back in 98.

Thanks for your input. You've pretty much decided it for me.

Re: Alesis DM5 drum module and Ddrum Pro Triggers?


I've been using mine for 10yrs. and no problems yet, i would highly recommend the 2 as a worth while investment. Get a good hard case for the triggers,those fine wires can be damaged very easily.I also have a full set of sm57's that i prefer to use as "backup's" and no more mic feedback or drums bleeding into each others, The sound tech's love'em !

Re: Alesis DM5 drum module and Ddrum Pro Triggers?


Have you guys ever had the problem where the trigger senses your snare drum hit?


I only trigger my bassdrum and when I hit a farely hard hit on the snare, the bass drum trigger reacts. I have tried it all, velocity and threshhold and sensetivity.

When the threshhold high enough so that the trigger doesnt pick up the snare, then its WAY to unsensetive. I bought a new module but it is the same thing.

I have a dm5 and a roland td-3 and a roland trigger

Re: Alesis DM5 drum module and Ddrum Pro Triggers?


You will want to really dampen the kick drum. This is a common problem that occurs when the bass drum head has too much movement in it.

Also, try putting the trigger on the floor-tom side of the kick drum, as far away from the snare as possible, and certainly not directly underneath it.

I have stuffed the bassdrum with 3 pillows and the skin tension is very high. And the trigger is also on the floortom side. It's still the same problem
