  • 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.
