It’s always good to read the original post of any thread, but going on the thread title, one would be forgiven for thinking the discussion is about possible perfect percussion devices to use with the Pyramid mainly due to there being no mention of the Double Drummer in the title and the question mark. And even reading the original post, it can be interpreted as the Double Drummer is a suggested perfect companion. For those not inclined to program percussion sounds using a drum synth of some description, Akai’s simple sample player/MIDI controllers would be perfect. The MPX16 runs 16 samples, can be triggered via MIDI and they are cheap enough to throw into the mix by not buying lunch at work for a week and making it at home. If 16 instruments are overkil, get the MPX8 instead for even cheaper again.
I agree, there are questions regarding instruments out there are more at home in the user forums created for those products, but to limit this discussion to purely about the Double Drummer is silly and if that was indeed what was intended by TheLoudest when he created the thread, then the thread title needs amending.
I’d like somewhere here on this forum to talk about what percussion modules users are sequencing with their Pyramid, whether there are idiosyncrasies that mean the Pyramid needs to be set up in a particular manner to use certain devices and whether or not they even sound any good. I mean take the Volca Sample for example, those things are so horrible to run using MIDI, there are constant threads on the Korg Volca forum regarding their ridiculous MIDI channel implementation and that dongle that guy made to operate them via MIDI. To stick to my interpretation of the thread, I’d suggest not using the Volca Sample with the Pyramid or any other sequencer other than the one it’s got built into it. Get an MPX16 if you want home-sampled percussion.
