I don't know if your CY-15R is malfunctioning though .... If you have another Roland type CY on a different input that seems to perform the way you expect you could switch the Cy-15R to that cable just to test and verify there is a problem ....

Now that's probably not a big issue for me since I do not do cymbal swell too often but there are times I only want a softer response.

    I assume this is a cymbal not module problem. I have seen mention and YouTube videos addressing CY-15R bell response problems and CY-14C choke problems but not specifically volume/dynamics. Since I am not the most DYI proficient character I am a bit leery about following their directions (i.e., tearing the rubber off) particularly if this may not lead to a fix. Has anyone else experienced this and if so any suggestions, success stories, horror stories, etc.?
