Babel drums should be played with the hands, preferably by striking with the fingers. In these cases Babel/Petal Drum Mallets can be purchased separately. A Drum Machine Designer track is a Track Stack – each pad has its own corresponding sub-track and channel strip holding the instrument and effect plug-ins for this pad. Click the disclosure triangle next to the Drum Machine Designer’s main track in the track header of the main window or above the track name in the Mixer. The channel will expand to show each Drum Machine Designer pad on its own channel strip and you can then adjust each pad on its own channel strip individually. To listen to the sounds, click the listen buttonon the pad.

No previous experience is required to play a Babel Drum and both children and adults will enjoy improvising with the mesmerizing sounds they produce. The mellow tones are never brassy or too loud – perfect for musical exploration in the fresh air. Unlike other parts of the drum kit, the bass drum and hi-hat are used in conjunction with a foot pedal. Some drummers use two bass drums and therefore require two pedals, placed by both feet to create faster and more impactful beats. When doing this, it is the foot that usually controls the hi-hat pedal that moves to the secondary bass pedal. Specially commissioned pieces have been written by respected teachers and session musicians with a greater focus on exploring the variety of musical styles and challenges met by the developing percussionist.

There are many ways to set up a hybrid kit, including incorporating multiple pads, a brain, and even attaching Roland’s RT series of triggers to shells to augment the acoustic drum sound. Serving as ideal practice tools for drummers that want to remain friendly with their neighbours, many modern electronic kits boast a range of realistic drum samples and offer a convincing and genuine feel. Drumsticks are essential for any drummer and come in a variety of types and weights depending on the player’s preference. Brushes, made of nylon, plastic or metal, can also be used with the snare drum to create swishing and quieter sounds. Some drummers opt to wear specialised gloves with a textured grip to prevent dropping their drumsticks and to also ventilate their hands.

The versatility of the TD series makes them ideal for gigging and the studio too, allowing players to easily plug directly into PA systems or recording interfaces. Some kits also feature MIDI integration, letting you record and trigger straight into DAW’s like Logic Pro or Cubase. Some electronic drum kits have very realistic acoustic drum sounds. This does depend on your budget however, as more expensive kits tend to have more realistic sounds.
