    Default Chili Kit Without Rimshot Snare

    Hi, so I purchased the Chili kit for the Redbox and got it installed. Has anyone noticed that if you hit the snare hard enough, it plays a pop sound like rim+snare hit? Is there any adjustment for this? I'd like to be able to hit it as hard as I want and it just be a snare.

    Wow no responses. I can't believe I'm the only one... this problem happens with default settings. Maybe everyone likes the rim effect?

    Hi,

    Did you happen to download the V2.00 Chili Kit file ?

    This gets you 25 kits designed for the Chili download and sets velocities and trigger settings.

    I did install the 2.0 settings, but the rimshot still happens. However, you mentioned trigger settings and that got me playing with some things. I adjusted the sensitivity downward which made it so I could hit the snare hard as I could and module would not show max level and prevented the rimshot+snare from sounding. This did change the loudness of the snare in the mix though, so I fixed that under Drum edit > SnareHd > Level. The next issue was now the snare would sound too soft or too loud and would be inconsistent with how I struck the head, so fiddled with vel>Level to get it to reproduce according to my strength of hits. A little complicated just to get rid of a rimshot, but I now understand better how these parameters work together. Thanks.

    I too get an unwanted trigger when hitting my snare. One zone set to snare, another set to rim shot, but when hitting the snare pretty hard I get a tom trigger. On top of that, only one zone is working on my 10" tom. I was hoping these would last a little longer than they did.

    I'm planning on taking my snare apart tonight to see if I can figure something out. According to other videos I've seen on how to repair a mis-triggering zone, and assuming the Tru-Trac heads use piezo transducers/triggers, it could be a loose piezo trigger just flopping around and creating multiple sounds. I should probably say that reinitializing the Redbox and checking the trigger sensitivity should be your first steps. But, I've done that already and I'm sure you have too.

    Hi,

    If you are getting unwanted notes coming randomly from the Redbox, it might be that you need to increase the threshold level on the trigger.

    Sorry...actually forgot I had replied on this thread. I'm all good now. Got a replacement for the tru-trac head that was having issues and adjusted the threshold. No issues whatsoever anymore.
