  • Problems with the Hi-Hat Ctrl input on the TD 8 Module

    Hi I was wondering if anyone has had the same problem as me?

    I have tried both the FD-8 and VH-11 hats in my TD8 Module and all I can hear is the "chip" of the virtual hats coming together. I have checked the hi-hat pad in other channels and it works fine. Can anyone tell me if this is a regular problem withe TD ctrl input and how much (if its a fault) would it cost to repair?

    Many thanks in advance!

    If you get the closing sound, then the HH CTRL input is working fine. It seems likely that you don't have the two hi-hat cables connected to the correct inputs.

    The FD-8 (or VH-11 CONTROL OUT) should be connected to the HH CTRL input. The pad/trigger cable goes into input 7 HI-HAT.

    (The FOOT SWITCH input doesn't get used for the hi-hat pedal.)
