MIDI provides amazing features for every aspect of music, from performance to production to practice. Since electronic drums are designed with advanced MIDI features in mind, it’s worth taking a quick look into how MIDI works as you’ll be able to do some incredible things with it.
MIDI is not a sound itself, but a signal. When you interact with your electronic drums – for example, hitting a drum – it sends a signal to another instrument, computer, or DAW telling it to do whatever you’ve set it to do.
Here are a few examples:
Hitting a pad could trigger a looping sample of another drum track to play along with.
Trigger a metronome to play, but only in your headphones.
Set each pad to trigger a sample of an acoustic kit you recorded.
Each pad could trigger chords, or sound effects.
Trigger stage lights to shine when you hit specific drums.
MIDI is a huge topic, for another time, but it shows you what’s possible with electronic kits.
Some folks refer to the module as the ‘brain’. Its primary role is to convert the thwack of your stick into sound. But depending on the specific unit, our app modules have further tricks up their sleeves, letting you shape your sound with effects and virtual instruments, play along with backing tracks or simulate a range of classic drum kits using built-in modelling technology.
Whereas acoustic drums handcuff you to one tone, pocketdrum let you switch up your sound to suit any band, gig or song: from clipped techno beats to fat hip-hop booms, a library of tones is selectable via the kit’s sound module. You don’t need to worry about inconsistent sounds live, either, and with no mic’ing required, it’s arguably far easier to record with pocketdrum.
Pocketdrum online app modules feature the Coach function, giving you tutorials in accuracy, timing and endurance that get tougher as you get tighter. There’s also the Quick Record/Quick Play feature that lets you record passages of your own drumming, then play them back to assess your progress.
That’s part of the fun. All pocketdrum let you connect CD/MP3 players for instant jam sessions, while the higher-specced models include USB/MIDI ports, letting you play audio files between your computer and your kit.
Measured in milliseconds, latency is the length of time it takes for your stick-hit to be registered and leave the speakers as audio. In the bad old days, high latency spelt frustration for electronic drummers, as the kit would struggle to keep up with the drummer’s groove. But with the latest pocketdrum offering the industry’s lowest latency figures, it’s not something that will even register to the human ear.
Yes, if you want to take advantage of the latest features and settings with your own kit. Aeroband periodically updates the ‘firmware’ (the internal software) of the module to offer new features or settings. To check the latest
