Re: Alesis DM8 Studio - Don't bother. Alesis DM10 - Better but noisy.
When you say, "DM10 better, but noisy," what do you mean? You mean that there is noise/artifacts in the electronics and the samples, or you mean the pads themselves? I'm confused. I want to make sure I'm getting a good module, as I intend to trigger acoustic drums with mesh heads and use the Alesys hihats and 3-zone cymbals.
I'm trying to decide on a sound module/trigger/electronic cymbal combination for recording to a sound track (I don't think I'll do MIDI, but it's nice to know it's there) so that I can play another instrument alongside it for solo playing.
