    Default A2E trigger settings

    Hey guys/girls

    Iím in the process of converting my acoustic drum set to an electronic drum by switching my heads to mesh and using triggers, Iím at a stand still waiting for my cymbal and snare/Tom triggers but I have acquired a Roland kick trigger Iím tinkering around with in the meantime. Iím having some issues with the triggers settings and was hoping some of you could give me some advice based on experience with triggers....this is my first experience with them. It seems like the trigger isnít responding to the hit accurately, if I hit the mesh head harder than my standard hit the trigger gives off a different sound. Problem 2 is that the trigger isnít picking up every hit when using my double kick and Iím not sure which settings to use to fix that without losing something somewhere else, Iíve cranked the sensitivity but then Iím dealing with false triggering. Iím using single ply mesh heads and Headphones at the moment so Iím thinking issue 1 could be my headphones at the very least?

    Iíve attached a photo of the kit and also I close up the trigger and itís placement

    If you don't get much in the way of help here, I would suggest joining the vdrums forum. You're more likely to get the feedback you need over there.

    I don't see how headphones would have anything to do with false triggering or sensitivity issues...

    I have seen a few videos where guys have put pillows or foam behind the mesh head to emulate the feel and response of a normal kick head. Mesh heads seem to have a little too much bounce for my taste even when tensioned low. The single ply mesh can easily cause double and triple triggering with no muffling.

    Muffle the bass drum. Less bounce\vibration in the head will give you more accurate triggering.

    Look for a setting in your module called "Threshold," which is related to the minimum velocity required to trigger a note. Try lowering it, instead of raising sensitivity. Also look for "Retrigger," which rejects signals the brain thinks are falsely triggered. Try lowering this setting too.

    As mentioned, this is most likely related to your single-ply mesh heads, and settings within the module. It has nothing to do with your headphones, or any audio output source.

    I was thinking the headphones weren’t good enough causing some of my hits to cause a different sound, I’m no trigger expert but I guess I would call it a latency issue?
