  • how to setup FD-7 for open/half open/half close/close in TD-30?

    Trying to setup FD-7 with my TD-30 with CY12 to use as hi-hat. Anyone has any tips? Thanks.

    Hi tivi

    I think the reason you have not got a response on this yet is that it should work fine - and what problem you are having is not entirely clear.

    With my td-11 the FD-7 plugged straight in and works great open/closed/everything in between

      Another reason might be that it's all explained in the manual!

      See page 128 and following on how to adjust hihat settings.
      The FD-8 setting is closest to your FD-7, so select this. For the correct pad-type, refer to the spreadsheet on page 126!

          I had a 30 module for a while and an FD-7 with it.

          I found the physical screw on the FD-7 affected it a lot. Basically I adjusted the screw to get maximum travel,
          then calibrated it on the TD-30. My FD-7 came with a narrow travel on the screw adjust, which wasn't what I wanted,
          a little movement went from fully open to fully closed, which made it hard to control the hat.

          I preferred the large pedal movement, which made it easier (but not all the way to easy) to get the slightly open sounds.

          I didn't have the TD-30/fd-7 combo that long, if I had it longer I would have adjusted the FD-7 to match the travel of an acoustic.

            i like and used to FD-7 [beeen playing with this for a long time with TD10] now with TD-30 i guess i need to adjust that screw to accommodate the TD-30 .. i dont want to spend more than $500 for the new hats and stands [dont like hi-hat stand, because some area when i play live, the state so tiny ..

              I read a recent thread on hat travel over at drummer world, the rule of thmb there is two fingers, or about an inch of travel.
              Although drummers being drummers there was a lot of variation on that theme.

              That's about what all the Roland pedals give you when adjustedfor maxmum travel.
