Hi Theo,

I have a ddrum4se 1.50 module, but I have not experienced this.

I have read somewhere another thread about "re-setting" the module to the factory default - could that do any good as a start?

Also maybe try plugging the bass and other triggers into the other functioning ports on the module (tom 2, 3) and see if they work, that way you know it is not the solder and you can beging to isolate the problem?

Nothing to do with DDrum4SE ... but in general I have run into electrical contact problems with machanical dials or sliders on several devices...... sound module, mixer, 24 channel recorder. If you decide to open your module you could spray the affected parts with contact cleaner and turn the dial back and forth while applying. On my devices I have had success without even opening them up .... just spraying into the dial from the top with the knob removed ... You could have dirty or corroded contacts.... Maybe a beer got spilled on the module at some point ;D
The good thing about electronic contact cleaners is they are non corrosive and dry very quickly, so you don't have to wait long to test it out....  I have also sprayed the audio inputs when I had problems and that helped once or twice..... Dunno, just a thought.

I think if it were me I would open the module and have a look inside. Can't hurt to clean it out... using some kind of aeresol blower...like keyboard cleaner.... check for corrosion, bad solder joints, etc ... use contact cleaner .... can't hurt, IMO.

I think Jman should be right , the symptom looks like a dirty potentiometer ...
 I had the same kind of stuff with an adat preamp ...I changed it and it was ok....
  try with the contact cleaner first ....
