This was a video experiment to see if Zoom H4N built in mic could be used as stereo overhead drum mic in substitute of typical Shure SM81 microphones. The test of Zoom H4n overhead drum mic is successful in that the drum overhead mics are clear and full, no phase problems with other drum mics, but with a slight bleed from snare & toms which was solved by pulling down mids just a bit in EQ.

Steven Slate Drums for Live Patch Changes Tutorial

Steven Slate Drums for Live Patch Changes Tutorial

Using Steven Slate Drums for Live Performance.
The problem is double clicking a drum kit name is the only way to load your next kit. There is no Midi cc or program change transmit that will work. this is impractical for a live performance, so here is my work around. saving as a logic or DAW instrument Preset allows preset change from midi command. You can even save a kit Chain by using a prefix name and number order, such as Stage 1,2,3, etc.
So to do this Load the drum kit for use and select save as. give it a new name, and click save. The new preset is now seen in your list. Now hit option K to bring up the KEY Commands window . Search the word NEXT in the top right search box, click the Next Patch setting, and click the Learn Assignment button, then strike a pad. Then type Previous in the search box, hit Learn New Assignment, and strike a different pad, rim of a pad, or dial knob. Striking the top of my cymbal now loads the Next preset, and striking the edge loads the previous preset.
