ION Drum Set Pedal Compatibility

  • ION Drum Set Pedal Compatibility eldarerathis

    I currently have a RB1 set that I got way back when it originally came out, but I've been considering getting a new set so that I can start playing pro drums on RB3. I figure that if I'm going to get a new set, I might as well splurge a little and get an ION set for myself.

    My hangup is this: After my original RB1 drum pedal broke I bought two of these pedals, which also came with a double-bass adapter. I really like the feel of the double-bass setup, and I really like the pedals themselves. I don't want to lose the ability to use these.

    In looking at the specs for the ION set, it appears that they use 1/4" cables/connectors for the pads and the pedal. Is this correct? If so, would it be possible to use my current double-bass adapter and pedals with an ION set if I pick up an 1/8" to 1/4" adapter? I'm mostly concerned that the adapter won't work, though I also don't know if the pedals would even work on their own either.

  • It does work with an adapter but the build quality on that pedal will feel disappointing once you have the all metal to compare it to. :)

  • The title kinda says it all-- I was thinking about getting a Portable Drum Kit for my Xbox, and was surprised to see lots of praise for the kick drum pedal that comes with it. If I get it, can I use that as a second pedal with my RB3 drums?

  • I purchased the Rock Band 3 pro drums (the ones that come with the cymbal attachments). I'm wondering what cymbal to color configuration I should use for a drumming experience most comparable to an actual drumkit. The instruction booklet said one option was to set up yellow->blue->green from left to right (when sitting in front of the kit), however, I have also seen photos on the internet with a setup of blue->yellow->green. There's even someone who's used a setup of yellow->green->blue in this question. For what it's worth, I am right-handed and I also have an additional bass pedal from

  • I have Rock Band 3 for PS3, the Mad Catz Midi adapter and a Korg PadKontrol drum pad. Now I'd like to use all this in pro drums mode. The PadKontrol is freely programmable, so it should work somehow, but I don't know the proper mappings. The manual lists the "midi numbers" I should program, so I tried programming the low tom (midi number 47, midi note B2), but it did not work. I have tried all 16 midi channels, but to no avail. What am I missing here?

  • gone wrong, and what might we do about it? The manual is no help. I also looked in the Yamaha P-95 manual, and although I didn't need to do it to get the adapter working initially, I reset the keyboard to factory defaults and tried variously setting the MIDI out channel to 1 and 10. What else can/should I do? New ones are $35, so I could just suck it up and get a new one, but I don't want to do... plugged it back in, no go. The buttons on the controller itself work fine to talk to the Wii and control the game. When we switch the D/K/G switch to "G" (just trying things), it blinks the S. O. S

  • that I can play the Wii on my montiro - much like I do with my PS3 and 360, for the convenience of having evefrything hooked up to the single screen.

  • with rubber, gluing mouse pads or cork to the drum surface, etc.. I've also seen some product(s) from Ion that claim to be low-noise, but I don't really know what that means. Has anyone succeeded in silencing their drum set? What method would you recommend? ...Is there some product / hack / technique to minimize the noise from hitting the drum with the stick? Or alternatively, are there drum sets designed with minimal noise in mind? Because I find

  • by staggering the shots. I'm not sure I could pull that off with the stunner. Furthermore, I don't seem to get the effect of delaying a repair because if I'm doing ion damage to a system (exclusively) they can't repair anything anyway! Also I'm out slightly more scrap for my choice. A more poignant example: -- Stun Bomb -- Warmup Time: 17 seconds Cost: ?? Scrap (Can someone fill me in?) Ion... basic ion weapons and others have been given a low chance of stunning enemies. While I can see the benefit of a weapon stunning foes as a random side-effect in a situation where I am focus-firing

  • The menus work fine but any FMV flickers really bad with only the left 1/4 of the screen actually viewable. The disc is a bit scratched but not severe. Is this a compatibility issue or could scratches cause this? The sound is fine as well.

  • So my 13 year old son is a Minecraft player, and I've been trying to get the new version up and running for him. Howerver, neither the 1.8 PR 1 nor the PR 2 version seems to work. He's been running a 1.7.3 server without problems, but I can't seem to get the 1.8 stuff working. The server is running on my linux box, which has the appropriate port-forwarding set up. This has been working for a while with the 1.7.3 server, and it seems like 1/2 the kids in the neighborhood are connecting to it, so I'm assuming it's not the problem. Anyways, I created a new directory on the server, dropped
