Description

If your gigs demand more than your acoustic drums can deliver, the RT-MicS is the gateway to an inspiring new world of hybrid sounds. And if youre daunted by the prospect of a hybrid setup, rest assured that its simple to incorporate this compact module into your acoustic kitwith no extra geartransform your snare and tom into versatile digital pads. The RT-MicS has eight preloaded soundsfrom hand-clap to snare variationthat youll be using confidently within minutes. But for ambitious drummers, thats just the start: you could import sampled sounds from a computer via USB, use the onboard mic to capture and process the acoustic snare/tom sound, or even mix acoustic and digital sounds for a bold signature tone. Whatever your ideas, the RT-MicS is the fastest way to explore the exciting possibilities of hybrid drums.

Nobody wants to sound like every other drummer on the scene, and the RT-MicS makes it easy to layer sounds for head-turning snare and tom performance. Its simple to trigger the eight preloaded sounds - just hit the drum with the RT-MicS attached and your chosen electronic sound will be played simultaneously. But layering sounds is where it gets interesting, with one hit giving you both a sample-based sound and a raw acoustic sound. Perhaps youll choose to enhance your snare, mixing that familiar acoustic crack with a complementary snare sound from the RT-MicS. Or maybe youll layer a tambourine onto the snare drum for a soulful backbeat.

When youve got a killer drum sound in mind, the RT-MicS is the fastest way to include it in your performance. First, download the free RT-MicS Sender software for transferring your original sample data to the unit. Then, import up to eight sounds (10 seconds max) via USB and get creative. You could mix your acoustic snare and toms with sound effects, or layer them with other instruments that you cant bring to the gig, like gongs and timpani. Alternatively, to save precious setup time, you could import tambourine or shaker sounds (no mics needed) and trigger them by striking your drums. For extra flexibility, you can even set the RT-MicS Sender software so that imported sounds are only triggered when you hit the rim.

You love your trusty snare and tomsbut imagine if you could take that raw sound and push it even further. The RT-MicS makes it easy, attaching to the rim of your acoustic drums and recording their sound with the onboard mic (no external gear needed). Having captured the original acoustic tone, its time to go deeperprocessing, customising or adding external effects like delay and compressor. Within just a few minutes, you could have a unique drum sound unlike anyone else on the circuit.

The RT-MicS is a simple and intuitive entry point into the fascinating world of hybrid drumming. It couldnt be simpler to attach the unit onto the rim of your snare or tomno additional tools requiredthen adjust sensitivity and threshold levels using the no-nonsense threshold dial. The speedy setup ensures you wont miss a beat, while optional battery operation means you can take your mind-blowing hybrid sounds to the street.

Store Information

THE HISTORY OF MANNYS

When you shop at Mannys you don’t just get the gear, you get the knowledge and expertise of 25 years of experience as one of Australia’s most influential independent music retailers.

In the beginning…

After managing the Allan’s city store for 10 years, an ambitious Manny Gauci-Seddon decided to open his own music store. He wanted his shop to uphold the values of true support and after-sales service, and to form genuine ongoing relationships with his customer base. The trends of the industry at that time were pointing to more of a disposable, corporate mentality and so in the early years he set out to make a name for himself as a serious independent alternative.

The first store was a funky shop in Smith Street, Collingwood in 1991. By 1998 Manny had outgrown this store and saw the need to focus more on the upcoming computer based recording revolution. He established an address in Johnson St Fitzroy as the arts were booming on the north side of the city. In the same year the opportunity came to acquire a business on Chapel St – the Revolver Music Gallery. With a two store operation Manny was now making the difference he set out to 7 years earlier. The Mannys brand was known for knowledge and service, with the staff greatly sought after for their experience. Unlike the other major players, the focus was not just on sales but also on the process of making music.

When the opportunity came to consolidate into one superstore, the North Fitzroy address seemed perfect for the move. Manny wanted to expand his customer base to include more of the musicians turning to the internet due to the lacklustre service of his competitors. He took the best from both stores and moved his operation to the hub of music and musicians just north of the city.

In November 2016 Mannys was sold to SoundBay Pty Ltd, the operator of Australia’s largest DJ and production retailer, Store DJ. While the essence of Mannys Music will always exist, our mission for Mannys Music moving forward is to ensure that we continue to build the ultimate experience for our customers online or in store. Our sales staff remain knowledgeable, professional musicians first and sales people second. Mannys Music gives you one hub to purchase all of your gear, and if we don’t have it, we’ll try our hardest to get it for you.

Mannys – The best advice you can give a musician.
