  • rim sensitivity snare

    I have my rim sensitivity on value '1'. But even when I hit very very soft, I get a rim sound.

    Has the center sound been changed to the rim sound. To see if this is truly a rim issue set the rim to a different sound like a cowbell or something then hit the center and see if the rim sound still triggers.

      Its TD-10 (expanded, V-Cymbals), PD-120 pad
      Triggerbank 2, snare is set to 12A. I'm sure everything is set right (I read manuals)

        Couple of things,
        Check your head tension,this was causing me some probs a while back.
        You may want to check your cone,it may need replaced.(available through roland c s)
        And,change your cable and see if it may be a problem too.They do go bad and drive you batty sometimes,like my ride did some time ago.
        Also,what are your other settings?mask,scan,xtalk...
        Good day sir.

          Headtension is 'tight' and is good adjusted.
          The snaresound works perfectly but the rim reacts to easy.
          Cables checked. OK
          Scantime 2.0
          retriggercancel 4.0
          masktime 12
          Xtalkcancel 50
          Mounttype seperate (snarestand)
          It can't be the cone cause I tried my other PD 120 (floortom), connected it to the snare input and had the same problem.

            Did you make sure there was no little dust particles or dust bunnies in the input?

              Do you have the X-Stick feature turned on?

                I've eaten all my bunnies with christmas..ha ha.

                and my X-stick threshold is 0.
                Its a lot better when there's a rubber on the rim.

                  The cross stick threshold is the point at which the sound changes from a rim click to a rim shot.
                  Basically its called velocity layering.
                  With it set to 0 you will never get the click sound ,only the rim shot.
                  Rim shots are generaly accents anyway so a value around 100 works for me.
                  This way any hit below a midi velocity of 100 will play the cross stick sound.

                    Lower the over all sensitivity of the pad input.
                    Drumkat Turbo 4.5, Emulator X3, Superior 2.1, Roland Fantom XR, DTXtreme III, SPD-20 etc.......

                      My pad sensitivity is at 2, so thats pretty low.

                      I don't need de X-stick control so I set it to Zero.
