What programs do you think would better emulate a quinto plus a conga, or a tumbadora, the biggest drum?

Are there any further descriptions about the provided settings? I mean, what was the idea of the "Conga Circle" setup for example, and how it would match or compare with the other options?

Thanks, and sorry if the question is too basic. I have seen another post about tweaking or improving on Conga 19, which seems more like a quinto to my untrained ears.

I haven't seen any detailed description of the various programs beyond their sometimes-random titles.

But as far as emulating real quintos, congas and tumbas, I would say your best bet is to start with program #19 and alter the tuning. It's the only really "pure" conga sound in the list. You might find that altering some of the other parameters is useful as well, but try simply tuning the pitch up and down to see if you can achieve the desired result.

Edit:
I assumed you were asking about using two different Wavedrums together but now I see that maybe you are trying to achieve the sound of two drums (quinto & conga) on one Wavedrum? That might be a bit trickier.

In that case, you'd probably have to start with program #20 or #21 and try altering the rim sound to maybe create a somewhat simulated effect of two different drums (one on the head, one on the rim). Program #19 is the most authentic sounding but due to the fact that is uses a "double-size algorithm" (which is why is sounds so good) it is impossible to add a separate sound to the rim on that particular program.

Thank you for your detailed response. I was actually trying to make a case for myself to get a second Wavedrum and assembling a two conga set, setting one more like a quinto and the second as a conga. I will experiment with your suggestions as a starting point.

In certain way, I was expecting the conga-centered programs to be rather complementary in two Wavedrum setups. I would likely try tweaking the rim sound of #20 and #21 and learn from it.

Thanks again for your kindness,

Guillermo

I worked for a whole day trying to getthe sound of both on one wavedrum and never really hit it. I'm no tweaking pro but dog gone after a day I thought I could get something close. Get a second WD!
