  • Tom on Y cable not triggering in specific conditions

    I have my first and second tom on a Y splitter cable from the Tom 1 Out. The second tom uses the Tom 1 Rim signal. It works almost perfectly, but it doesn't trigger with some drums when played in quick succession. I estimate when the notes are played about less than a second apart.

    To break it down:
    Tom 1 to Tom 1 R (second tom) works fine (I would have thought any problems would be with this combination)
    BD and all cymbals to Tom 1 R work fine.

    The problem only occurs when going from Snare, Tom 2, Tom 3, and Aux (4th tom). I've gone through various adjustments on the pad's scan and masking time but none had any effect.

    Is this a common problem when using a Y splitter? I reads that there were issues using them but didn't see anybody mention specific issues.

    What Module are you using? And what kind of Splitter Cable?

    I think it may be due to Crosstalk Suppression, and you may be able to resolve it by moving the Toms on T1 and T1R to a different Crosstalk Group.

    If it improves, but then you have other Xtalk issues, you may need to keep the same Xtalk Group but adjust the Xtalk suppression level.

        Thanks. I'm using a TD-9 and a Y splitter cable with the 100 Kohm resistor. It looks like this kit does not have Crosstalk Group options.

        Edit: I see the manual makes one reference to XTALK GROUP:

        "Crosstalk Example: If you hit the snare pad and the tom 1 also sounds
        Set the snare and tom 1 to the same XTALK GROUP."

        But there is no other information on where this setting is. I've never seen it in the menu.
