I guess we will see in time. But Roland put up $65M dollars to use those words. That represents about 7-10 years of DW income to break even. Certainly they must believe a bigger opportunity than that.Exactly
The terms “game changer” and “revolutionary” is more marketing hype than indeed brand new technology or even concepts. New application as an evolutionary hybrid drum step but not seeing the giant leap.
Sorry but exactly how did "Sunhouse do this years ago"?Sunhouse did this years ago with Sensory Percussion and continues to improve upon it with 10 distinct zones per sensor and the ability to blend between zones and control a multitude of other parameters in a very natural way.
I think you missed that I quoted @Chris Whitten, who brought up positional sensing, rimshots, and cross sticks as being the future. I responded that Sunhouse did that years ago. I wasn't responding to you, which is why I didn't quote you.Sorry but exactly how did "Sunhouse do this years ago"?
Going by the demo video on their website there's still an XLR cable sticking out the back of their triggers which goes to the module.
I understand if you're saying the triggering/ 10 distinct zones per sensor is the awesome part (which it is) but I was referring to wireless pads (ie triggers without cables) as the "revolutionary" aspect.
Maybe I'm missing something?
Ernie Ball Music Man brought out a guitar called the Game Changer. Didn’t last long.As both a consumer and someone who has worked in marketing within the industry for over a decade, this sort of hyperbole makes me want to puke. I'm all for getting flowery with the product pitch but this sort of stuff is the cliche that should get someone fired.
No worries (my bad).
Sure, but the trend follows the money.The trends are clear.
it can already be done (similarly to this)You can now play yours drums from anywhere and get a notification when it's time for your drum solo.
You can also control your coffee maker, sous vide machine, air conditioner, engine heater and garage door in the comfort of your drum throne.
Starlink is your friend.my 'broadband' is 8Mbps download
My latency is consistently 30–35ms. Is that too long for gaming?Unfortunately the latency is about 4x longer than regular broadband. So it’s no good for internet jams or gaming.
