Alesis Strike Multipad - Roland FD-8 Pedal Incompatibility

Hello, Everyone

It has come to our attention that the Roland FD-8 pedal will not give you a "Chick" response with the Strike Multipad's Hi-Hat settings however, the pedal will still provide Open/Close features. This happens because the FD-8 pedal does *not* send a CC note message when you press down on it, causing it to *not* trigger a chick sound, unlike the Alesis RealHat pedal. You may still be able to get a chick sound with Roland modules since the pedal is proprietary to those kits.

Here is a link to the Alesis RealHat Pedal:

Hope this helps!
