  • Stupid Hi-Hat question

    Hi, hope this doesn't sound too stupid, and couldn't find this using the search function. I have the V-Session with the expansion card and love it all except for the hi-hat. I seem to get mis-hits, especially using certain kits. I'm just not comfortable with it. My question is can I use an acoustic hi-hat and still get the sounds through the TD-10 so everything sounds in balance? Is there som sort of trigger I could use with the acoustic.

    Thanks!

    I've never heard of anyone triggering a drum module with an acoustic hi-hat, but maybe one our more venerable contributers has an idea how to do it.

    I never have problems with my V-Session hi-hat using the TD-10 expanded. Have you tried adjusting the sensitivity and threshold settings to accomodate your playing style? Are you using Bank 2 as prescribed in the TDW-1 manual?

    I ask the above, because we have all seen complaints about hot spots, cross sticking and the infamous ride cymbal bell trigger, but the hi-hat seems to be one of the least problematic triggers. Its not an acoustic, mind you, but basically does what its designed to do IMHO.

      What do mean by "mis-hits"? Do you get drop-outs, double-triggers or the like? It sounds to me as if you have some sort of connection problem or an incorrect setting in your trigger-bank! Check if the trigger is set to the hi-hat pad you are using.

      There should not be any mis-hits!

        I agree, its worked fine up until a month ago, but certain kits, like kit#6, hat closed, the sound has become very inconsistant. Hard to explain, but I'm not happy with it.

          Hi Tully,

          what's kit #6 on your set? The standard TDW-1 Rocker (Never liked that hi-hat sample much)? Mine have been moved around a lot ... I've got 7 of my own kits (mostly tweaked from the 5/4 Funk one) up front.

            Yes, #6 = Rocker, I'm at work and couldn't remember what it was called. Thanks!

              Hi Tully,

              sorry, was away and can't get back to you right now either. I'll post something here tomorrow ... once I've put the "Rocker" back on the module.

                  ditto.

                  Rigging up an acoustic trigger (that works well) could be painful. You can almost be certain it is
                  a) Incorrect trigger settings
                  b) Faulty pad/leads

                  , plenty of , and , , triggered acoustics, , and a plethora of PA blah blah freakin blah...I mean does anyone care about the specifics of pedals, speakers, processors, hardware or anything that I'm using?? :confused: Hmmm, maybe this is an appropriate place to mention that I tried out a new cymbal stand the other day...
