Hi Hat settings

Postby BBdrmz » Sat Nov 21, 2020 7:31 pm

My HH are eDrum Go brand.

I believe there are 3 or 4 sensors in the top hat and a switch underneath for triggering closed. There are a lot of settings and I would like to understand ALL of them. In my previous set up superior drummer figured the settings by how hard I struck a pad continuously. Knowing the language would probably help me in this area. The areas on the HH; I understand what the bell is, I think that the bow is the beefy part of the middle, beyond that I am nearly lost. The main point is that I cannot get the hat and pedal to function with one-another. Any direction would be appreciated.

This one come up first when I google for cymbal bow bell edge: https://music.stackexchange.com/questio ... ide-cymbal.
For configuring a HiHat Controller you first need to know the polarity of the controller - is it Roland or Yamaha polarity. MegaDrum modules by default come with wiring for Roland polarity unless I'm told to build a module with Yamaha polarity for HiHat controller. If MegaDrum HiHat controller input and your controller polarity mismatch then you must use a crossover cable (tip on one end goes to ring on another end and vice versa).
Then you must set LoLevel and HiLevel as per https://www.megadrum.info/content/hihat-pedal-settings
Once LowLevel and HiLevel are configured and if you use MIDI CC for pedal positions then you have to set all all Notes in Pedal settings for all cymbal zones (bow, edge and bell) and pedal positions (from semi-open to closed) equal to Notes (bow, edge and bell) in HiHat cymbal settings.
After that the HiHat controller is pretty much configured.
