Nowadays, beginner first choice is the electronic drum kit because it’s easy to learn. You are thinking of joining the world of drumming, or you have always wished to get to play the drum, but have no idea how the electronic drum kit works. The real thing with an electronic drum is that it’s not noisy especially for those people who don’t have understanding neighbors.
The brain, sound module, and the drum model
You have been around people who use the electronic drum kit and heard them mention the ‘the brain.’ The brain is just another word used to describe a drum module and sound module. Importantly, this is where all the drum sounds are generated, even any other function of the kit. Even if you choose the basic electronic drum kit, it will always give you a selection of different sounds. So, you are a lover of rock music you will just select the rock track.
When choosing which electronic drum kit to go for choose the one that offers the ability to select your music from the different drum sounds, or just edit the current sound. A Majority of the drum modules work best using the PSM. It means that for sound to be generated, the sounds must first be recorded in a real birch kit. Also, the brain comes with different inputs to accommodate the triggers.
Drum triggers or trigger pads
Trigger pad consists of the bits that the electronic drum kit produces. Drum triggers have a sense that will pick up on the vibration. When you hit the electronic drum, the pick up will immediately sense that it was hit, but not only that but it will sense how hard it was hit, because of the levels of the vibration.
Three places in the electronic drum kit are the ones that will trigger the sense of vibration, the head, rim, and the drum shell.
Beyond that, some of the electronic drum kits will have two basic triggering places, those that will mainly depend on the head or shell and those that will rely on the housing to climb on the rim and press the trigger on the head. All this trigger depend mainly on the piezo technology. Nowadays, many electronic drum kits come with not just one but multiple zones that function by triggering different sounds.
