dm10 hi hat not working properly

I recently purchased a DM10 MKii Pro. Everything is working fine. I saw someone selling the older version DM10 module on craigslist and thought it might not be a bad idea to have a backup so I bought it. I actually owned one 6 years ago.
Everything is working right except the hi hat. It very often splashes instead of closing when I step on it. I have done the calibration, changed the cables, tried messing with the open and closing feature and sensitivity and nothing is working. I searched for this problem on the forum and it seems like it is a common problem, but I don't see where the problem was resolved. Can anyone help? I would prefer the older module to the newer one. (better cymbals)

  • Hi Dan,

    Thanks for posting. Sorry for the delay.

    It sounds like you may need to calibrate your hi-hat. Follow these steps below:

    Calibrate the hi-hat pedal:

    Connect the hi-hat pedal to the module but do not press it down.
    On the module, press EXT TRIG.
    Use the CURSOR UP / DOWN buttons to highlight the Input field at the top of the screen
    Then use the VALUE UP / DOWN buttons or VALUE DIAL to select HiHat.
    Press CAL (F4).
    With the hi-hat pedal completely raised ("open"), press OPEN (F1) and wait for a message saying the process is complete.
    With the hi-hat pedal completely pressed ("closed"), press CLOS (F2) and wait for a message saying the process is complete.

    If Hi-Hat is still not working as expected, even after open/close calibration:

    Connect the hi-hat pedal to the module but do not press it down.
    On the module, press EXT TRIG.
    Use the CURSOR UP / DOWN buttons to highlight the Input field at the top of the screen
    Then use the VALUE UP / DOWN buttons or VALUE DIAL to select HiHat.
    Press TRIM (F3). Use the CURSOR UP / DOWN buttons to select Open or Closed and use the VALUE UP / DOWN buttons or VALUE DIAL to adjust the setting.
    Pro Tip: Increasing the "Closed" value makes it easier to close the hi-hat or "choke" it.
