  • TD8: How obvious is the Positioning Sensing?

    I have a TD8 and have just recieved my Jobeky snare (very nice by the way)...

    I have been playing with the "Positioning Sensing" and at first I didn't think it was working.. But when I listened carefully, I could hear a subtle (very subtle) change in sound when comparing hits to the middle and the outside edge.

    I assumed that subtle was normal, but I have been told that this might not be the case.

    Does anyone have a TD8 who is using its Positioning Sensing capability.. Is the effect it subtle or obvious?

    If its obvious, does anyone know why its only 'subtle' for me? Are there any config changes I can make which might help?

    Just to confirm, I have the trigger settings configured as the 'A' type (with Pos Sensing) and also am using an instrument which is 'pos sensing' compatible.. Its not that it doesn't work.. It does, but as I said, the effect is very VERY subtle!

    Not sure if this helps, but I have a PDX80 snare on my TD12, and chaning the pad type can significantly impact the "amount" of POS you hear. Not sure if this is the case on the 8. Try experimentign with different settings if you are not using say a PD125.

      I have tried them all, and I don't here much difference.. My Snare is 12", so I am using the 12A trigger.. But have also tried the 10A, 8A, etc and don't really get much variation in sound.

      I have just recieved my 8" Hard Accupads and have tried one of those on the Snare input.. And the result is the same (infact, if anything, there is LESS variation in sound).. So if anything, its the TD8 which is to blame!

        Did you look at the MIDI settings? Bruce (Bart) replied to an early post of mine and stated how you can disable POS. Not sure if this is the issue you have but it worth looking in to.

          I will check, but I don't think that this is the answer, because pos. sensing IS working.. There is certainly a different sound as you hit the drum towards the outside edge.. BUT.. Its very VERY subtle!
