Hi again!

I just released a new manual for the Zourman Hi-hat conversion kit (formally 42Box) for FD-8/VH-11 with some small tweaking tips. You will get a 100% working Roland hi-hat implementation by just using the standard calibration scenario, but it is actually possible to tweak it even further to be able to reflect your play style even better. What I have seen in my tweaking tips is there seems to be a connection between the impedance on the bow sensor (which need to be cooled on Roland hi-hats with some resistance) and how easy or hard it is to create a foot chick. A too high cooler value (50k ohm) will make it very hard to create a foot chick(sample number 9) and a too low value will make the foot chick to misfire. About 20k ohm seems to be a sweet spot on my hi-hat solution. (There is a variable resistor on the HH kit)

On VH-11 there is also a mechanical way to transfer the hi-hat to be more open or closed by just routating the hi-hat pedal screw on the hi-hat top a quarter turn against open or closed. This will make the hi-hat to react in a smoother way.

There is also a nice way to adjust the samples if you think the especially hi-hat sound cuts too sharp by just adjusting the "hold" parameter on 2box DrumIT Five module.

For more HH tweaking hints....general or especially for the Zourman Hh Kit...have a look in the new manual:

A new version of the manual for Zourman Drums Hihat Conversion Kit can now be found on Zourman.com. (Support section)

I have now officially added support for FD-7 and the new FD-9. More hi hats will soon follow.
Mr "De...Lo" thought my 2box screenshots looked strange and that one of tweaking tip was unclear...so I have fixed it and redrawn the screenshots to now be top notch! :-)

Have a look at:

Zourman Drums introduces models with Virtual Clutch functionality.
The new added virtual clutch models includes support for Roland Fd-X, VH-11 and VH-12 and 2box.

Virtual Clutch is a system where the hi-hat pedal position variable can be set in advance between open/closed. A perfect solution for drummers with double kicks who sometimes need the ability to set the hi-hat in to near closed position. A switch on the front panel will set the Zourman hi-hat module in virtual clutch mode. A potentiometer adjust the open/closed position. One feature is that the pedal will still work as usual when in virtual clutch mode...but will go from the fixed position to closed when pressing down the hi-hat pedal.

Interested? Have a look on http://Www.zourman.com

hi Anders

Very usefull option !   

If i can give you an advice , it could be cool to add a jack so one can plug a simple switch pedal to activate/deactivate the V-clutch . With a led on the box to be able to see the status .

Have a nice day
