    Circling back on this one. I set the maximum velocity yet again. This time with the intent of getting a setting over 1200. To do that, I had to beat the crap out of the HH with the butt end of the stick. However, with a setting over 1200, the sounds are much more balanced. Open HH sounds are still too loud but it's much improved. That defies all logic. I'd NEVER play the HH that way. Why setting its velocity well beyond what anyone will actually pay results in better dynamic balance between samples is a mystery. Again, not perfect, but a lot better.

    Pearl still needs to add this SW adjustment get things right.

    Any update on this from Pearl side?

    I switched from Zildjian Gen16 cymbals to triggered metal cymbals (Field) and indeed the loudness of opened to closed sounds is kind of ridicilous.
    Can't be that hard to make this configurable in the settings.

    I'd love to hear that this will be part of the next software release.

    Talking about software releases. Any idea, when the next one is scheduled to be released?

    Thanks,
    Andreas

    Pearl defends it as not an issue in the FB groups and it's a feature that isn't needed. Even stated Roland doesn't provide this feature as a defense (but Yamaha does!!). They advise edits can be made to compression and other settings to improve it and that, perhaps, people don't play correctly and are thus causing a problem that isn't there. SMH...

    I've found it depends on the HH you use. Some do this imbalance thing badly and others the settings are balanced without issue. So, the engineer was inconsistent between the various HHs. That's okay..........provided there are volume settings to make adjustments, which brings us back to the OP.

    Unfortunately, I gave up on Pearl and now use a MIDI cable to another module where the HH adjusts as it should.

    Hi,

    Your comments will be sent to our developer for consideration.

    Please remember that the Mimic supports many trigger options and some of these units were created after the Mimic was introduced.

    We haven't received many requests from these manufacturers to include their products in our settings.

    That would require them sending samples to our developer to test and create trigger patches.

    ATV sent cymbals and a snare for testing and they are moving ahead with trigger settings for these units.

    Did you use e/Drumin for your midi interface?

    Sorry I wasn't clear. I was referring to which HH sample (sound) you assign within the Mimic and not the brand of HH trigger used. Some HH samples are balanced well. Others are not. Sorry for any confusion.
