  • Can't get a good hi-hat sound for a "heavy metal" drum kit

    I'm currently set to "Heavy" something or other with the pitch and sustain lowered... but it sounds like crap when I'm using the hi-hat pedal.

    Any ideas? Thanks.

    I like Swing lowered a bit with some added sustain. YMMV.

        I have a kit which I have modelled on Ben Gillies from silverchair. It's a really PHAT kit not unlike John Bonham (who I am listening to now). For a really thick hat sound, very sloshy and metallic, I use the sound "HeavyHH2" which is found in "EXP HI HATS" group, sound number 782. I haven't pitched it down at all, and it sounds really heavy. It also suits Limp Bizkit and Metallica songs too. Mind you if you cannot find the "EXP HI HATS" group in your TD-10, you should probably get the TDW-1 board...

          That's the one I have mine set to... but when I use the hi-hat pedal it sounds like ****...

          I noticed that if I pedal lightly, I get a different sound that sounds better than the one I get when I pedal quickly and heavily... is it possible to disable the latter? That could be cool...
