    Default Mimic Pro Triggering issues

    So, I have a Mimic Pro, which I love, generally speaking. But I started having a strange triggering issue, where some pads will trigger not only their assigned sound, but ALSO another sound. For example, my Tom4 pad is also triggering Cymbal1. My Cymbal2 pad is also triggering the snare sound. Here's the thing... this is the second Mimic I have owned that has started to do this. My first Mimic worked great for months, then suddenly started doing this. The Cymbal1 was also triggering the Tom4. Sweetwater honored the warranty and exchanged it for another one. Now I've had this one for a few month and it has started doing this. So, I just sent an email to Pearl support to see what they say.

    Based on all my troubleshooting in the past (and I did a LOT), I can tell you that this is NOT a cross-talk issue. At least not in the sense that the vibration is causing it. I know this because it still happens if I literally disconnect ALL pads except for the one with the problem. So, if I disconnect everything except the Tom4 pad, and I hit Tom4 hard enough it STILL triggers a Cymbal sound. Crazy. I consider myself very good at adjusting the trigger settings on the Mimic. I've had a lot of practice at it. But, I'm starting to think that maybe I'm missing something. Why would the same problem happen with 2 different modules? Anyway, I've adjusted the settings and performed the cross-talk adjustments numerous times. Still the problem persists.

    Has anyone else had this issue? I'm hoping someone could shed some light on this. It's a great module, but it was expensive, and is not usable with this issue. I am very frustrated, and I'm just about to get rid of it and get a Roland.

    thanks.

    I did receive an email this morning, asking that I try resetting the module, etc. Was that you? The email was not signed.
