  • positional sensing in SD2

    Hey Guys,

    I have a DIY kit, which I have hooked up to a laptop running SD2. I have positional sensing working, for single strokes that is. If I do a press roll, starting near the rim, and then moving to the center, SD2 keeps giving me the "near rim" sound. The sound that belongs to the position where I started the roll.

    Is that something in my settings, or is that a SD2 nuisance?

    Regards,

    Viper

    Did you use the Roland preset? Mine seems to work fine after using the preset. I have tweaked the Hi Hat a bit and changed the odd note numbers but as far as the snare goes (apart from the sounds) the positional sensing seems to work fine

      Viperr, you may have better answers if you posted in the MegaDrum forum. Lots more users there with that module.

        Hey Perceval,

        I hadn't looked at it from that perspective. It's very well possible that Megadrum sends the wrong signal, and that SD2 is not the problem. I was so focused on solving it in SD, that I was blind to other options.

        I'll give it a go.

          Yes. This sounds like more of a MegaDRUM related issue. We have about 5 different values that controls this so the midi + cc information delivers right to the VST.

              ignore mine from earlier as I don't know what made me think you had a roland module

                No problem. I could have been more clear about the fact that I use megadrum

                  Angr77, Perceval,

                  You guys were right. Megadrum settings.... Thre are sooooo many of them.

                  nevertheless, once you figure them out it is a module that can almost do anything.
