  • Hi-hats through distortion pedals

    What if a distortion pedal like the-Guyatone MM-X was used as bridge.

    TD's hi-hat output into a distortion pedal and out into the hi-hat it self.

    For experimental sound effects....?

    Maybe for really nasty hi-hats, stuff like that.

    I don't understand this. In general effects can be connected before or after a sound source. Just like guitar players do.

    But why should you put the pedal on the hi-hat input? You can affect the working of the mechanism

      Just to see if any additional harmonics can be brought out though applying light distortion.

      You are referring to the pedals mechanism?

        Yeah, and I don't think you would put in effects there. Perhaps I misunderstoud out into the hi-hat it self.

          Signal processors work on audio information, not trigger signals, so there would be no effect at all. What I think could happen is the trigger signal would be interrupted, maybe at random, maybe completely. I wouldn't try it myself.
          Your best bet on using a distortion pedal is either the send/returns or the channel inserts on your mixer. Assign the Hihat to one of the individual outs, and put some fuzz that sucker!
          Sounds quite nice, BTW, I use it one Snare, Kick and Hats very often. When sparsely used it adds a lot of punch to the sounds, and when you turn the unit up, better wear your earplugs, cause that snare is gonna scream!

            (Maybe should be under Wishlist)

            I have always thought Roland should have included Distortion as one of their effects.
