Setup guides and tips / Re: Problems playing live after 4 Gigs.

Hi Don,
Yeah recorded things and sounds ace little tweaks here and there but on the whole sounds great,
The playability of the hi hat tho sucks and the odd Mistriggering in a cymbal as stated,
My biggest bug bear are the hi hats, especially after watching a demo of a Roland td25
Where the hats behaved beautifully
I've heard that I can use Roland hats with the 2 box crashes rides drum pads all no problem,
Just the hats are a no can do.

Hi thanks for your reply, I sound like a right whining git haha!
So if the bass player sets up next to my kit that can mess with triggering?
I did not know that, so in smaller venues it could be a really big issue.
Also being new to all this tech have no idea X talk and mask curve etc etc mean,
I read on here strike a pad as hard as you can and turn the gain down until it just peaks and then set sensitivity so that it triggers when striking very lightly.
So with gain on zero it peaks haha! So got no idea what to do there, except turn the gains up and the volume down in kit with each pad/ cymbal.
This us basically how I mix the kit with the Pa speakers facing me until I think it sounds great to my ears then the rest of the band is mixed to the kit.
The hi hat is the biggest issue tho it's like hitting a dead fish.
Sounds great but that's the module it just doesn't perform for my style I think nor will it ever?

Hi guys,
I am really struggling here with my kit live,
I seem to get the sounds for the pads sounding ace
The sensitivity is great can lightly tap them and beat the hell out of them.
Then when we start playing it all goes tits up
The snare doesn't respond like it did the light strokes just don't happen
Even though I saved everything and exited the edit pages.
Also every time I go to use them,the snare I set as my main doesn't save I have to go back in the settings to find again.
Then the cymbals......these are really spoiling my live performance and overall experience.
The hi hat has absolutely no feeling when I watch performances on you tube you rarely see guys opening their hats I know why. I have tried all sorts of settings , maybe I just don't understand what everything means and the combinations in the settings it really is winding me up.
Even the crashes they work well but sometimes they just don't trigger I've had the sensitivity set so I can tap lightly then again hammer for the most they work but odd times they don't.
The ride cymbal just doesn't work at all and the rubbers are starting  to split on the cymbal edge I'm by no means a hard hitter but the edge gives the best triggering for some reason.
I bought a Roland cy14 which I use for my ride it's 2 zone but have the bell on the edge and it triggers beautifully I don't like the swinging it does it's a bit much but what a cymbal.
If I buy more of these will they solve the triggering issues.
Also does anyone have a hi hat that works?
Can you share settings please? Are Roland hats the best way to go?
I use the module as my in ear monitor for the band I have an out for the kick and another out for everything else my line comes back into the aux pot.
The way the kit is mixed to give a great front of house sound means the cymbals and toms are very very high in my ear mix is there any way to control these different levels without having a line out for each. I thought I would be able to control the drum mix in my ears from the unit without messing with front of house or the mix of the other instruments and vocals coming at me from the aux, it's like I have to set the levels funny for the cymbals and tons for them to cut through so it really messes my overall drum mix up in my ears real loud cymbals I need to have a separate out for everything to combat this then the monitor guy can control my in ear levels without adjusting FOH levels?
There are lots of settings that I don't understand on the kit and I will be honest I'm a step away from Going back to the tamas and the audix.
Thanks for your time guys.

Hi guys,
After lots of trying I still can't manage to set up my kit when playing live.
I have gone through the settings and I just can't get it to do what I want
Could someone please dumb it down for me in an easy to interprate list.
I need my kit to go out to the front of house mixer with a separate channel
For my kick drum.
I need the full mix from the mixer to my headphones that are connected to my 2 box brain.
Plus I need my kit coming into my head phones also and have the possibility
To control the volume of the kit from the level
Knob on the brain for my headphones without changing the front of house volume.
And the sound guy controlling the volume of all the other band members in my headphones
From the mixer.
I hope I am not asking a lot but I am really struggling to achieve this.
Much appreciate any help.
Cheers Andy. Oh and also what cymbals are compatible with the unit?
I git a really cheap Pintech splash that works ok, but I am looking for another crash and continue using the 2 box cymbal as my ride.

Hi Andy thanks for the reply.
I use my IEM's out of the module so have no
Monitor and our guitarist sorts the pa mix
But isn't incredibly savvy with his new desk.
Hopefully the way I am gonna approach it
Will work.
I have only owned the kit a month so fingers crossed or Tamas back in biz.

Hi guys,
I'm new here so forgive me if this has been asked before.
I am in rather a rush as have 1st gig using the kit on Friday.
At rehearsal I just connected the kit to the PA and used 1 headphone just so I could hear the rest of the band as they didn't go through the mixer.
Ok I believe that to have the kit going FOH I just send a jack from out 1 to the mixer and need not change a thing on the module.
To have a separate out for the kick I have assigned it on
intf - Bus 3  Out - 3 phones Mix.
Out 1.2 Sub! phones Mix

So if I connect out 1 to the mixer and out 3 I will have all the kit bar the kick to out 1 and the kick to 3 having a separate channel therefore on the monitor.
If I then send a jack from Aux output on the PA Mixer to the line in on the module I should then have the PA mix of all instruments and vocals + the drums and kick drum in my headphones from the headphone out on the module. And the level control will turn the kit up in my headphones only not FOH..
Is this all correct or am I way off? The reason for separating the kick is to send it through the Subs FOH.
Thanks for any help on this matter, much appreciated.
