i have the alesis dm5 pro kit, and my hi hat keeps double triggering when i have the footswitch open. if you hit it anymore than babby soft, it will trigger the sound, give the nice washy open hats sound, then cut if off a fraction of a second later. i tried what the books said about adjusting the sensitivity, and it worked only slightly. anyone else have this problem or know how to fix it?
thanks

There are 3 settings that can affect sensitivity, did it previously work then suddenly develop this problem?

I'm trying to remember all the settings available on the DM5 module , but If I read you post right it sounds kind of like the sample for the open hi hats might be being effected by a gate or threshold setting .
