Waveform responsiveness

Postby rgo » Sat Aug 01, 2020 10:10 am

Hi all,

How, and in what realm, does megadrum benefit from a somewhat 'better' waveform?

For an example what I mean, see https://www.vdrums.com/forum/advanced/technical/1225322-roland-pdx-100-tom-pads-head-tension-and-hotspotting-tackle-%E2%80%93-the-nerd%E2%80%99s-way: The first waveform shown there is what we usually have, I suppose: some kind of superposition of different frequencies. The second - well, aesthetically at least, that's what we strive for. But 85 mNm an the tension watch seems really strong to me.

How do megadrums algorithms react to those differences? I.e.:
    Does it help in minimizing DynTime/DynLevel?
    Is it helpful when it comes to positional sensing? AFAIK the stronger the tension the better PS, but does it really make a difference when it comes to this order or strength?

Are there other aspects pro/contra a 'perfect' waveform / strong head tension (next to the mechanical ones, tone and bouncyness)?
