I'm proficient in a bunch of equipment. I'm kinda geeky about wires and signal routing and can answer most questions related to electronic music and the machinery that makes it, right down to the sysex hexidecimal "nibble" I expect that this creative venture may result in triggered sequences but, for now, all my playing is real-time (no backing/loop tracks being triggered and together we can work if/what/when sequences are triggered).
Normally I would think what kind of equipment I use is largely irrelevant. Tama drums or Pearl drums, 2 toms or 10? No big difference really. However, I am playing a very odd drum-set worthy of mentioning. The drum-set includes a 3-octave midi controller that permits melodic and percussive parts to share a rhythmic base. So the drumparts follow melodic structure. That's why patience may be required, a drummer following melodic structure....
I've included a couple videos using midi-controllers. Please note that I tend to post videos of playing soon after learning/playing the performance for the first time. Hence, the performances are pretty rough and without "production" loops, samples, or other stuff to make it sound better.
