    Contributing my opinion...

    If I was starting from scratch today; ATV triggers with a Mimic Pro - that accounts for most of the accessibility advantage with Roland's kits.

    Not to forget, if the fabled instrument editor comes out, it'll dwarf any remaining argument you could...

  • I think your decision will be determined by playing feel more than anything else, as trigger performance can always be tuned in the module. But I wouldn't be surprised if the KD-10 didn't perform as well, if not slightly better than, the KD-120 - given it's a more rigid playing surface against the piezo...

    I've practically given up till April next year.

    The UK will be independent at that point and we will be able to trade with the US directly.

    The only alternative is importing from a US store and considering the price of the Mimic isn't moving, it's actually a more viable option...

  • I have the Speed Cobra hi-hat version of this stand; removing the tilt spring was the first thing I did, as it was obvious it wasn't going to work with the VH-11 sensor unit.

    You must remove the spring to sit it flat.

    replied to Mimic Pro - HiHat Denoise
    I checked the VER 1.0.8.24 Manual, but is there a technical explanation of what the hat denoise algorithm does?

    We have something similar on Megadrum which is called smoothing. I think it reduces the resolution of the sensor output, roughly speaking. As a result, the amount of MIDI out...

    replied to Kd180
    Roland R&D refuses to make their own full mesh head kick triggers beyond the 14 inch KD-140. This says something crucial to me about kick trigger design; I'm guessing could either be about longevity or trigger performance, or both.

    They are purposely being different from most full size...

    Using the offset will have to do.

    I would first neutralise the offset in the module, and also on the spindle - by unscrewing about half a turn, so you have some correction range afterwards.

    Then set the spring tension on the pedal to where you like, although as I said earlier,...

    My tips for reducing slow opening response:

    1. Increase spring tension on your hi-hat stand.

    2. Tune the open level threshold to be as close as possible to closed threshold, so that only lifting your foot slightly, opens the hats. A relaxed foot should keep the hats closed,...
