Zoom HD16 Panning Drums

I Started out in 1976 trying out to sing in bands but no bands were interested in me. In 1977 I started playing guitar. The individual that was teaching me (who for now will remain anonymous) told me that I would NEVER learn how to play guitar because I had no sense of rhythm. I joined my first band in 1978 called "Dead Center" in Jacksonville, Florida. I played an Aspen guitar, black; a Les Paul copy and in 1981. I gave that guitar to the teacher who said I'd never learn to play. I wrote my first song in 1979 or '80. Over the years I have been in many bands but my passion has been songwriting. I have written well over 100 songs and though the early ones were kind of rough around the edges, I think that most of them could be dusted off and given a new facelift. Today I am still working on my songs. Currently I can play guitar, bass, keyboard, drums, harmonica, and Native American flute. The flutes that I play are ones that I made myself. My guitars are the Epiphone G-400 faded, an Ibanez RG370 DX, an Epiphone G 1275 double neck guitar. My acoustic guitars are an Alvarez 12 string and an old Kay guitar. My drum set is a Peace drum set. I do my recording on a Zoom HD16.

    Just found your Great Website. I’ m just starting to learn how to record With my zoom hd 16 cd.

    Question: how do I get just the drum pattern to play without the bass guitar?

      I had the same problem at first. The Best way I have found is to just turn the volume off on the Bass. From the main screen, hold down the “shift” key and press pad 7 (pattern). The rhythm pattern screen should appear. Turn the dial until the rhythm pattern is shown that you want to turn the Bass off of. Then press the “edit” key. The pattern edit menu will appear. Now curser right or left until it says “Bass Level”. The current volume will be in a number form. Turn the dial till it says 0. Then just hit “exit” till you’re back to the main menu. If you have any more questions, just ask….
