    Default ATV cymbals are choking - and it's REALLY anoying

    Hi all,

    I have a Mimic Pro with an ATV aDrums Artist Series Basic - set. My problem is that the cymbals/ride are "choking" from time to time when I hit them hard, i.e. like I choked/muted them with the hand. It is really really anoying.

    Cymbals/ride
    Cymbal 16 for Crash 1x aD-C16
    Cymbal 18 for Ride 1x aD-C18

    What am I doing wrong?

    Thanks!

    Did they work previously?

    Have you tried to reset the module?

    Check in with ATV too - look into previous Edge Sensor issues they've seen evidence of. Sometimes with Roland V-Cymbals, rubber flakes can accumulate near the edge sensor and put pressure on it, so they trip the "choke sensor" when you hit them a certain velocity. It may be a cymbal\sensor issue rather than a module issue.

    They have done it from the beginning, but it seems to get worse and worse . I'm not so found of resetting the module - it just takes so long time to get it working well, I think...

    Great input! Will try to do that... It would, however, maybe be more likely if both the ride and the crash did not do it(?)
