Rockband: Pro Drummers or Rockband Players?

Hi Everyone!

I currently run a PS3 FatBoy (4-USB Model) and PS4 Pro. I been learning drums with Rockband for about a little over 1.5 years now. I got lucky to obtain a PS3 MIDI Pro Adapter. My drums configuration is an Alesis Command Mesh kit with Pearl P932 Demonator Right Footed Single Chain with Interchangeable Cam Powershifter. Any Pro Drummers here? What is your setup like?

The Story:
I originally got this game on Nintendo Wii for the kids to play with the toy drums and guitar for Christmas. They did play with it for a while but then decided not to use it much. I grabbed the game for the PS3 and a kids drums set because it looks better and I felt it worked better. However my son who was excited about the game decided not to play it much frustrated at the pads and such. I then picked up local an Alesis Nitro non-mesh model for $200 only 6 months old. I got lucky to have found a PS3 MIDI Pro Adapter on Amazon. So I grab that for him and he loved it.

After a while he was not playing it, so I decided to play with it here and there for about 20mins each time. Eventually I got hooked on it and continue playing it. Eventually on 2019 Christmas I was gifted (by my wife and kids) an upgraded model an Alesis Command Mesh kit to continue my obsession of this game and drums. I now own almost all the Rockband games and I just want more. LOL! Might even buy another PS4 just for the Rockband Rival since I like keeping my Pro model in the family room for other games play nights. Even considering in a year or so to upgrade to a Roland or higher end Alesis but trying to use this model to beat up and learn as much as I can before a higher expensive model upgrade.

On a side note I have come from playing bass guitar on Rocksmith and Rocksmith 2014 + (DLCs).

I wish they release Rockband for PC so I can just have my PC and drums which are already connected is. I thought I saw a project trying to go that route in 2016 but funding was limited. I think was one of those start up deals to make $1.5mil for the project. I think we reached 750k. Sadly I wish they attempt something like that again or just get it started. I am sure it will sell.

definitely not a pro...i am barely even a hack.

running the midi adapter on ps3 connected to an expanded yamaha kit. kit started out as a yamaha dtx express and i added dual pdp pedals. After buying a leftover yamaha rack and eventually replacing all the pads (pie cymbals especially werent cutting it), i moved to a dtx500 module. have left it alone since

i built the kit because the ps drum kit was utter garbage. that led me into taking some lessons and playing rb regularly. now i play once in awhile
