  • TD12: Using hi hat output for new pad

    Hi, I have TD12 drum module (kind of old, but very reliable). I want to use the existing hi-hat outputs (2 jacks, "Hi-Hat", and "HH CTRL") which I'm no longer using for a new pad. When I cycle through the sound module menu on the Hi Hat output for selection of sounds, drum types are available and can be selected (ie; 8" Roto Tom). However, when I plug an existing drum pad into either of the above 2 jacks, no sound is produced. Has anyone out there figured out how to use one of these two jacks (or both?) to use as a drum sound for a new pad? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    You will only be able to use the Hi-Hat Jack. Not the HH CTRL Jack.
    You need to go to the Trigger Bank. See P.44 of the Owner's Manual.
    You will need to change Trigger 6 to some other Pad type.

      tkydon, thank you so much. I did the changes as you noted. It feels like I'm getting closer. I successfully changed the H6 Hi Hat trigger to a PD85 pad in "Triggers". I then made that pad a "Roto 8" in "Instruments". Still no sound. However, when you hit the pad that I have the H6 trigger plugged into, The H6 trigger indicates it's playing something when you view the "Scan" portion of the "Advanced" page within "Triggers" (each time I hit the pad, a new bar was created on the graph). See photos. Any other ideas? Again, any help would be very much appreciated.

        I'm afraid I don't have access to my module right now to test.

        Instead of the Roto 8, can you select a Hi-Hat Instrument and see what happens. Do you get any sound? Open Sound? Closed Sound?

        Do you have a Hi-Hat Controller that you can plug in to HH-CTRL Input and see if anything changes when you have it open or closed?

        Can you try Trigger Setting
        PD-80
        PD-9
        PD-8
        PD-7

        The PD-85 is a Dual Piezo pad, but I think the Hi-Hat Trigger may only support Piezo-Switch type Pads.


        It might be easier to purchase an eDRUMin (4 ports) or other TMC and connect it to the MIDI-IN
