  • Some new info for Hart users


    1. PAD TYPE -Choose 10A for all HDI ACUPADS and 12A for the ACUSNARE. The "A" settings allow position sensing (for position sensing "samples" or actually "models"). You may also choose 10B and 12B respectively, but you will not get position sensing.

    2. For all other triggers (ECYMBALS, HAMMER, HAMMER KICK, MULTIPAD choose PD9. So, choose "A" pad types for position sensing, "B" for non-position sensing, and PD9 for all other HDI trigger products. You must choose a pad type which supports choking for choke capable cymbals. PD9 is a good default. For advanced users, scan time for position sensing should be 2-2.4, non-position sensing 1-1.2 for all drums with heads, and 1.0 for everything else.

    He mentioned that they are working on real player demos with the TD6 and TD8 in conjunction with Hart products, so we might get some new audio/video examples.

    Peter Hart also mentioned that -

    Also, some people (Cliff) noted -

    Peter told me - " What I said was "Our drums are not quite as "hot" as the Roland
    pads." They are certainly as sensitive.

    Hart's products are great....the best bang for the buck out their...Now all he has to do is figure out a way to make a "quiet" E-Cymbal hi-hat, and I'll be in heaven...

        Good man: thanks very much for the updated info. I just got in a large load of 2-ply heads: I'm retiring the last of my single-ply veterans. I'll certainly be taking another look at the triger settings while I'm at it, since I set them up several years ago and haven't screwed with them for a while...

          Holy Cow that new PRO 6.4 is AWESOME. Now I wished I had waited one more year. Then of course I'll have wished I had waited another year because of next year's hot product. Are you following this.

          I do really wish though that I had purchased the brilliant cymbals instead of the series X pads. I do believe I will be taking care of that situation soon. Anyone thinking of buying a Hart kit, go with the brilliant cymbals.

            Since I was quoted, I will respond. The hot/sensitive conversation I had with Peter Hart had NOTHING to do with the "hot spot" issue. Hot = sensitive for instance, the "hot spot" is the spot on the drum that is more hot or sensitive than the rest of the drum. Peter's claim that his pad is not as "hot" but just as "sensitive" as Rolands is contradictory.
