article Electronic drums are a staple of drum kit playing for a variety of musicians.
Some, like the one above, come with integrated electronics, while others are built from scratch.
We’ll start by building a simple electronic drum setup.
First, we’ll make a drum kit that has an electric drum controller, an electric bass drum, and a drum pad.
We will also need a speaker for the bass drum and an analog-to-digital converter for the guitar amp.
The setup is fairly simple:We’ll add a few components to make it work.
First, we will need a stereo audio interface (S-audio) that can connect to a PC via USB.
The stereo interface will be connected to the audio output of the amp.
Then we will add a stereo amplifier.
The amp will have an onboard amplifier.
Finally, we need to connect a digital signal from the S-audio interface to a digital output from the amplifier.
This digital signal is then sent to a computer via a USB cable.
The digital output of our amp is then connected to a USB port on the drum kit.
The drum kit will be wired to the drum pad and the digital signal will be sent to the guitar amplifier.
If you are playing a digital instrument with a guitar amp, you’ll need to install an external audio interface into the kit, which will then pass digital signals from the amp to the amp’s digital output.
The setup for the drum set.
The digital signal coming from the analog- to-digital conversion.
The analog signal coming back from the guitar.
The S-Audio interface is connected to an audio output on the guitar kit.
The S-Output is connected directly to the digital output on our amp.
We can now connect the digital signals directly to a monitor or a TV.
The signal coming in is also sent to an external monitor, and the signal coming out is sent to TV.
Next, we can connect the drum signal to an amplifier using the standard S-Input method.
For simplicity, we assume that the signal is coming from an amplifier connected to both the guitar and the drum drum kit via the S Input and S Output methods.
The amplifier is connected through a pair of coaxial cables that run from the front of the drum stand to the back of the stand.
The audio signals from each of the instruments are connected to those signals, and so on.
We don’t need to plug any of those connections into the drum controller.
If we don’t want to connect the signals to the controller, we could use a signal-coupling circuit to route the signals through a separate audio input and output.
We can now start connecting the signal to the bass, guitar, and drum.
First we’ll connect the signal from our amp to an output on each of those instruments.
The guitar amp is connected from the side of the amplifier to the front.
The bass is connected via a separate amplifier to both of the drums.
The drum amp is the same way, but the signal going to the amplifier is routed through the bass amplifier.
Next, we connect the guitar signal to a separate output on a drum controller and the bass signal to its own output.
We also need to add a speaker on the bass to connect to the TV.
The signal going from the amplifiers to the monitor.
A signal coming directly from the speaker.
The amplifier is now connected directly into the amp and the audio signals on the amp are routed through its speaker.
The sound coming from that speaker is then routed to the display.
This is done using the SOutput and SInput methods, which are described in more detail below.
Next we’ll add an external input to the SInput method and an external output to the output of one of the amplators.
For clarity, we’re using the same method as for the signal-to and signal-out methods.
This time, we have two signals: the signal sent to our amp from the speakers and the corresponding signal sent back to the speaker from the signal on the amplifier itself.
The output of both amplifiers will be routed through their own outputs on the screen.
We will also add an input to a third amplifier on the same screen.
The input from the third amplifier will be used to power the monitor, which we’ll use to display our drum set’s music.
Finally we will connect the output from our amplifier to a TV via an HDMI cable.
This is a standard setup with a stereo-to analog converter, an external amplifier, and an integrated digital audio interface.
Now, we just need to do a little work to connect all the signals.
First we need a signal from an audio source that is connected between the amplifier and the screen and is then fed to the video monitor.
This will be the digital audio signal coming through the amp from its front panel.
Next are the signals coming from our stereo-in and the stereo-out interfaces.
We use the SInject method for each of these, as explained
