  • TD6 MIDI Triggering issues


    TD-6 works and triggers dual zone fine not using MIDI.
    • Hooked up my MIDI cables to my TD6 on Saturday. Had a few problems.
      • CY6 crash only triggers on top, edge does not trigger and does not choke
      • CY5 hits had to be hit in certain spots to trigger
      • CY5 HH only triggers on top, it does not trigger on the edge
    • PD9 Dual trigger seems to works fine.. pad and edge get 2 different sounds.
    • Thinking of getting SD 2.0 soon, but I have a few questions.
      • Will SD recognize dual zone cymbals and pads?
      • How would one record using SD and Garageband, Ableton, etc?

    Thanks

    What are you hooking it up to with midi? VST? Sounds like it's more of a software set up issue than the module. I'm using Addictive drums with my TD-6V and dual zone triggering on the cymbals works fine. I assume that SD would do the same thing. You can download a free demo of BFD3 and see if you can get dual triggering to work in that. Can't help with the recording bit as I don't do that.

      I've got a TD-6V and a CY-5 in my kit setup and all dual zone capable triggers work just fine in Superior 2. Superior doesn't really care how many zones a particular pad is as long as the module assigns each zone a different MIDI note. You then simply assign a sound to that MIDI note in Superior. I've tried almost all of the big drum VSTs and always come back to Superior. As far as recording goes, you just load Superior into your DAW as a VST instrument plugin, decide if you want to record MIDI or audio, or both, hit record, and off you go....

        Did you have to do anything special with your Module as far as setting up for MIDI ?

          Did you have to do anything special with your Module as far as setting up for MIDI ? Another funny thing I noticed is with my CY5 running MIDI... The rubber part of the cymbal has trouble recognizing my hits, but if I hit on the opposite (the hard plastic side), it works well (no miss triggering). Everything works perfect when not going thru MIDI.

            Hey techhjpc, you can use MIDI-OX coupled with LoopBe1 to monitor what midi information your Module is sending. Hope that helps!

              No, nothing special. I did adjust sensitivity and crosstalk to work with Superior. I never, ever use just the module sounds or care to use them without Superior, so I didn't care about messing up how the TD-6 sounds without using Superior. Just created a user patch, #99, and always leave the TD-6 on #99. I run a TD-10, TD-6V, and a TMC-6 simultaneously and they all seem to trigger virtually the same, save for a sensitivity tweak here and there. I did have to switch all of the MIDI notes since I'm running 3 modules at once, and I didn't want any note overlap. I've go no such issues with my CY5 so I can't help you there. I only use the CY5 as a hat on my right side, but I usually use my hats on the left, a VH-11.

              If I were having a MIDI issue, I'd just do a reset on the module and start from scratch, just remember to back up your patches if you're worried about losing something. I wasn't. All I use them modules for is Midi triggers.
