Quote from: Rmiller on April 27, 2018, 09:57:59 PMI have three 3 zone cymbals (two 14â€™s one 16) and will use 1 as a ride and 2 for crashes. They each have 2 outputs per pad (Pearl, Simmons, Alesis types, not Rolands) and am wondering if the B inputs will work for them and that they are able to use a crash type cymbal with a bell or would they need to be rides only. Not sure if this makes sense. Thanks
Quote from: Rmiller on April 27, 2018, 11:49:34 PMThanks J. Mine are new 14â€ Alesis rides (not Strike) and an Alesis 16â€ ride. I also have 2 pearl 12 inch crashes but they can only be single zone since their split from toms 3 and 4â€™s rims. I will find out if the bells are switches and will report my findings. I use muted Sabien metal hats with your stealth trigger. Just got a goedrum controller but havenâ€™t had time to mess with it. All my drums are 2 zone Laurenâ€™s (12â€s, 2 12â€t, 2 10â€t, 16â€b using â€œtennis ballâ€ Kat beaters). Once I get everything dialed in I will post my settings.

Quote from: Rmiller on August 15, 2018, 03:33:43 AMFinally after 3 months of owning the d3 module I found the time to start getting it set up.1. Using the newer Alesis 14â€ rides as crashes ( not stirike cymbals) , the a and b work like the Rolandâ€™s; I get the bell on the crash.2. Using Jmanâ€™s stealth hihat trigger on a Sabian hihat upper cymbal with a geo drum controller, It works â€œokâ€. Still trying to dial it in. Need to run it thru sdse to balance out the sound. Chick sound, when using pedal, is louder than when striking the cymbal. Also still not getting a tight closed sound when fully pressing the pedal and striking the cymbal as well as not getting quite a fully open hi hat sound. Itâ€™s a little sizzley. Still messing with calibration settings.3. The drums sound great, however I am not impressed with the crash, ride or hi hat samples. They all seem somewhat tinney and do not sustain well at all, especially the rides. I have tried various settings but havenâ€™t found any that I consider good sounding samples yet. I will import some ad2 cymbal samples that I know sound good and hope they stay that way after the conversion. Also need to run them thru sdse to get the sounds better balanced between the edge, bow and bell.4. Just really getting started with this thing. I did select the appropriate type pads for each, set the gains (heavy strike =0.0) , then adjusted individual output volumes. Have not messed with faders yet for any volume control. Also messed around with different curve settings (normal for most, couple of pos 1â€™s as well.) 5. Not sure why channel 2 is the default used for midi out. Channel 10 is the standard for drums unless I am missing something here.Overall pleased with the module, especially the ability to use ad2 kits without a computer, but the factory drums are really good, again the cymbals are so so thus far.
