I'm not sure how to phrase the title exactly.
I just picked up a bigger rack for my vDrums (the MDS-10, in the attached pic). I have the MDS-4 now, and it's a little too small to really spread the drum heads out the way I (and my drummer) would like to.
The 10 is a bit overkill, but I picked up a used one on eBay for under $200 and it should last me quite a while.
Anyhow. I have two extra tom pads right now, and they'll fit on my new rack to give me a total of 5, which would be sleek. Unfortunately my head (the TD-4) is a low end one and doesn't support more pads than I already have on it, and I can't justify upgrading to the TD-12 (which is about a grand) until I'm at least a little better.
That said, I'd like to at least have the toms active, so that my upper two 6" and lower two 8" make the same sound. Eventually I'll upgrade the head (probably in the spring) but for now I'd just like to be able to get sound out of the pairs.
My head has a wiring harness on it that ends in 1/4" TRS cables that go into each trigger. Is there any reason that a standard TRS Y-Cable wouldn't work? I don't want to split it out into a stereo signal (since that's not the application), but I think there must be a 1-to-2 standard Y cable out there with a female TRS split into two male TRS plugs, yes? And that should work?
Two? In one input?
