    Check your mixer settings.

      Man I wish someone would write a program to dump your kit settings to a text file. I started a spreadsheet so I could record all the setting of a couple of my best kits. One advantage would be finding obvious settings problems which would cause what beatboy mentions. It would also help with being consistant from kit to kit and would show patterns of things that work and don't work. I am losing interest in the spreadsheet cause it's such a pain documenting all those settings. Then there is maintenance to keep them current. This isn't the first time someone has brought it up. Is this a difficult thing to program? or is it just that those who can program have better things to do than help their old pal Boingo?

        Hey Beatboy,this is definitely an EQ problem.
        Try and set the bass drum's EQ individually.
        (refer to your manual if you have no idea what I'm talking about)

          Mixer Volume, EQ, Ambience, Effects, Compression - increase any/all these and your volume goes up. That's why two sets with the same Mixer Volume and Group Volume settings often have a difference in overall volume.
