  • Mimic Pro and Cable Woes

    Anyone find their Mimic to be very sensitive to cables? When using a set of clear cables from Drumtec, I find that some of them need to be backed out slightly to trigger (at the module end). They work perfectly on the AUX inputs of my aD5 so I'm at a loss. I've got some old Roland cables around and they seem fine. Anyone had similar problems or is it just me?

    The input on mimic are heavy duty, the cable that require o ring are not standard cable, perhaps newer drumtech are not using standard cable, there was a thread with cable that require 0 ring @JmanWord

      Thanks - I'll try some small o-rings.

        i had the same issue with my older roland cables that are in great shape. some of the brands of cables are a tad bit longer then the high quality ones hence is why it you pull it out a hair it works.
        the o-ring idea works great! the size needed is 3/16 ID 5/16 OD

          I have the Drum-Tec cables with the Mimic and have not noticed this problem. Hope the O-rings work for you.

            It appears to be only the longer cables (I have the multi cable set). Maybe I got some duds.

              I had the same exact issue (also using the clear drum-tec TRS snake) - it did not happen initially but after months of use it developed on one input so far. Specifically, it was occurring on one of my HH inputs. I could pull the one cable out slightly and it would register properly. I then swapped the HH with the HH Ctrl inputs (same cable snake, just used different numbered cables) and that addressed the issue for now. If it continues, I will try the O-ring. Seems like the consensus is the Drum-Tec cable itself causing issue.

                Good to know it isn't just me. Unfortunate though as I like the price and look of the cables.
