  • Hello,

    Thanks for posting. 

    Please follow these steps below:

    How To Optimize Crosstalk, Sensitivity, and Triggering
    1. Make sure your SamplePad Pro firmware is up to dateYour first step should be to make sure that you're SamplePad Pro firmware is up to date. We've released firmware that specifically addresses the way that the Sensitivity parameter responds to your playing.

      Visit the Docs & Downloads section of the SamplePad Pro product page on the Alesis website to download and install the latest version if you haven't already. This may be all you need!

    2. Adjust the Sensitivity parameter on the SamplePad Pro to a value of 2. The number you set the Sensitivity to determines how hard the pads must be hit on the SamplePad Pro before a samples triggers. A lower number requires the pads to be hit harder before a sample is triggered. The higher the Sensitivity is set, the lighter the force required to trigger. Many players use the SamplePad Pro to play loops, or trigger percussion samples. Since these applications do not typically require or benefit from nuanced playing, we recommend setting the Sensitivity to a value of 2. This should allow you to play effectively without triggering other pads unintentionally (crosstalk). 

    3. Change the surface you are playing on - try a snare stand or percussion mountIf you're using the SamplePad Pro on a flat surface such as a table, you may experience increased crosstalk. As indicated above, setting the Sensitivity at 2 should prevent this for the most part, but some surfaces or situations may not be ideal to play on. The Alesis SamplePad Pro is an entirely self-contained electronic percussion instrument that can be affected by excessive vibration. For performing, most players position SamplePad Pro in a typical snare drum stand or percussion mount. This greatly reduces vibration and also makes the SamplePad Pro easy to integrate into your existing percussion setup. 

    Let me know how this goes.

  • I use a translator and the translation may be inaccurate.
    I have a similar problem.
    I updated saplepad pro software to the latest version; nothing is wrong
    The pad is mounted on a statin; This did not improve much.
    I reduced sensitivity on blocks to 2 and is no malfunction.
    There are still crosstalk on the blocks,
    please help.
    Sorry to add to the topic.

    • Uważam, że te przesłuch które powstają podczas grania, to wina konstrukcji urządzenia i tego się nie zmieni.
      Wszystkiego próbowałem. Podłączyłem pady pod wejście 1 i wejście 2; grając na padach nie ma tego problemu ale grając na samej maszynie problem powraca.
      To wina konstrukcji i temat zamknięty.
      Dziękuje za pomoc.
