Just found and downloaded a TD6 manual online, if you want to PM me again, I'll be glad to map out the settings you'll need to adjust...
would i change the crash cymbal into a floor tom?
the last question is that when i hit my floor toms my bass drum trigger
picks it up and makes a really soft hit and same with my tom that is mounted in my bass drum when i hit it the bass drum
hits is there anyway i can stop this?
I'm going to edit my statements to include the directions as I find them in the manual...
To change the sound of any pad; hit the pad, then use KIT, EDIT, ENTER then +/-. To edit the pitch; move right to Pitch, then +/-.
keep in mind that any input on the module can accept your trigger signals- you'll just have to manually change the instrument and trigger settings. No big deal. all found on pg 58 of the manual.
here's how to make sure the trigger type is set correctly
Set the trigger type to
“RT-3T,” = toms
“RT-5S,” = snare
“RT-7K.” = kick
(SETUP/TRIG BASIC/Trig Type; p. 69)
For the cross-talk problem, you have at least 2 options. You can use the cross-talk suppression setting if that module has it, but it can occasionally block out intentional hits. Raise the level of cross-talk suppression on the pad that is mistriggering.
(SETUP/TRIG BASIC/Xtalk Cancel; p. 73)
However, I'd recommend adjusting the 'threshold' setting on the tom so that only a direct strike triggers it, and not the vibration from other, bigger drums.
This is not a 'sensitivity' issue, that's a whole other function. What you want to do is set the threshold setting at which the trigger recognizes a hit. Raise it till the misfires disappear but your softest strokes still register.
(SETUP/TRIG BASIC/Threshold; p. 72)
You might also want to browse around at the Vdrums forum:
and why shouldn't he try triggering the whole kit if he's got the gear and desire?
That's a TON of new sounds you can access by triggering your kit. Why not have both, instead of just one or the other?
