Alesis dm10 hi hat trimming issues

I want to fine tune (trim) my hi hat to the settings Open: 40 Closed: 60 but it will not let me exceed Open with Closed, for example if I want to make increase Closed so that the value is more than Open it will not let me, Open increases along with Closed when I increase Closed. I would like to have Open: 40 Closed: 60 but for now I am stuck with Open:60 Closed:60

  • Hi Phillip,

    Sorry to hear about your troubles. I'll be happy to help!

    Let's make sure your hi-hat pedal is properly calibrated:



    Additionally, make sure you have write protection deactivated. To turn write protection off:
    1. Press UTILITY.
    2. Press SYS (F4).
    3. Press O/S (F3).
    4. Press MEM (F4).
    5. Press VALUE DOWN or move the VALUE DIAL counterclockwise until the "WriteProt" field says "OFF."
    6. Press DRUM KIT to return to the main page.
    Hope this helps! Let me know if you have any further questions!

  • Hi Phillip,

    Let's have you perform a full reset on your module:

    1. Press UTILITY to enter the main Utility Menu. 2. Press SYS (F4) to access the Accompaniment settings. 
    2. Press INIT (F2) to access the reinitialization page. 
    3. Use CURSOR UP / DOWN to move through the menu items: 
      All Kits: All of the module's Kits and their settings will return to their factory defaults. 
      All Sequences: All of the module's Sequences and their settings will return to their factory defaults. 
      All Trigger Settings: All of the module's trigger settings will return to their factory defaults. 
    4. Press EXEC (F4). 
    5. A window will appear asking you to confirm your choice. To confirm and reinitialize the selected settings, press YES (F1). To cancel, press CANCEL (F2 or F3). 
    6. Lastly, hit Enter at HiHat TRIM Menu: Open: 40, Closed: 60. 

    If you continue facing issues after this, I would recommend calling into Technical Support for one-on-one troubleshooting. Their contact information will be listed on that page. You may also submit a support ticket online by navigating to www.alesis.com/support and selecting Technical Support from the drop-down menu.
