That's great.The "sampled" tom sound had buzz built into it. You could even program how much or little buzz the toms needed.
That's even greater!A light went off in my head. That's just the nature of our instrument. Some prefer the sound of buzz, others not so much. That's the day that I quit concerning myself about it.
That's right, the more expensive modules and also a lot of VSTs have that option to make it sound more natural.The "sampled" tom sound had buzz built into it. You could even program how much or little buzz the toms needed.
I've read that quit a lot: take the snare or the one tom causing the problem and tune it differently. However, I notice in my small home studio that it isn't a specific tom causing the most buzz, but all 4 toms (and even the kick) about equally.The despising frequencies that are responsible for snare buzz in your kit are always going to fall somewhere, depending on the tuning of your snare drum and more so your toms.
If the hoops are deformed, then you really need to get them fixed, i.e. by new ones. I have messed with deformed hoops and they NEVER tune right, even a very slight bent in the hoop can throw everything off.Ok I check the hoop on a granite countertop and i was out a wee bit, not much. Being new to acoustic drums I am not sure how much is too much. For a new set of drums you wouldnt expect it to be out at all would you? But why is it ALWAYS the 2-4-6-8 lugs that are loose? I tighten them in accrodance to an 8 lug hoop....1-5-3-7-2-6-4-8. On my second round of tightening should I tighten 2-6-4-8 THEN 1-5-3-7? Thanks again guys, I really appreciate your help.
