  • Retrigger cancel for Bass drum with TD-8

    Is it normal to have to set the retrig cancel to 16? The double trigger are not as bad when I play barefooted. When I wear sneakers it's worse. When retrig cancel is at 16 it goes away. Is there any other settings that go with the retrigger cancel? Also what should scan time be set at?

    I have a Roland TD-8 and a 18" mapex bass drum with a 2ply black hart.
    Crossbar with a homemade cone a little firmer than the roland cone.

    Mask time is the parameter to help with this. As you raise it, it prevents another hit within the specified time parameter entered from triggering another hit (thus "masking" it, get it?). Once you raise mask time, you will probably be able to bring your retrig cancel back down a little. For scan time, start at zero; then as you repeatedly strike notes with the same force, raise scan time until all notes sound with equal volume. Generally, with scan time, the lower the better (according to Roland).
