Default Roland Rhythm Coach RMP3 & Stick Control

Hi,

I've read the Stick Control thread on this site, (which is great!) and I have a question about using the Stick Control exercises in combination with the RMP3 (or a similar training pad) for measuring the accuracy (in time, balance,...)

Does anyone used the RMP3 (in combination with Stick Control)? Which accuracy score should I aim for?

Thanks in advance,

Alex

p.s. I already play on a Roland TD6, so practicing on a mesh head won't be different for me

I have no experience with the RMP3 (or any 'rhythm analyzer' as such), but here's my take on what 'accuracy' you should be aiming for.

Aim for a high accuracy on BOTH timing and balance (dynamics between hands). If you're using this to hone your technique, then there's no point in aiming for it sounding good 50% of the time, you should be aiming for 95% at the lowest.

Understand that technique is only half the battle, and while you should be working on time, dynamics and accuracy, you should also be working on applying technique in musical situations, and learning to play grooves as well.

My $0.02.

I understand I need to work on the musical side of playing drums (which I have been doing for some time now, but with limited results due to my poor technique.

Thanks for the 95% accuracy score (and your 0.02$).

Does anyone else has the RMP3?
Thanks in advance

Just bought the RMP-5, an upgraded version of the RMP-3. It makes practicing so much more fun! I love the built in PCM sounds.. I've already added a kick drum pedal to it, I'll be getting a cymbal trigger very soon, so I can get a mini set of electronic drums.
I tried out at all of the Time Check functions last night, really cool...
