It's starting to sound like the reports of broken Guitar Hero World Tour drums and guitars are starting to calm down a bit. I'm convinced that my hardware is fine. Ryan ended up with a cymbal with a dead spot on it and a guitar that makes a ridiculous squeaking noise that makes it the most annoying thing ever products by anything, ever.
How about you? If you answered "well, my drums seem weird," then Neversoft might have just the thing. The company has released a software-based tuning kit for the PC that will let you set the sensitivity on each of the drum pads, as well as the kick pedal.
The catch is that these drums are wireless, so you won't be able to just slap the USB cable into your PC to tune them. Instead, you'll need to use the MIDI port on the drums, hook that up to a USB-based MIDI interface, and then use all of that to set and save your settings. That sounds like a bunch of super-specific steps that most users won't be able to do on their own. As for me, my drums work fine, but I think I might hook them up to my old Tascam US-122 just to see the sensitivity software in action.
Knowing my luck, I'll break something in the process. Find out more on the official Guitar Hero news page.
