I’m frustrated

How do I get rid of DM10 Studio Kit "cannot calibrate etc etc" message?

I have had my Alesis DM10 Mesh kit from new now for just 10 days and the module still states "cannot calibrate etc etc" I've made sure that the heads are free from objects and swapped the ride TRS leads over as well as updating the firmware, but to no avail, please can you assist as i'm regretting ever buying it :(

  • You could remove all trigger cables from the module and check if it powers up OK.
    Then reinsert them one at a time and If any pad or cymbal is auto-triggering, try increasing it's Threshold setting.
    Another option is to reinitialize all trigger settings in the Utility/Sys/Init menu (page 31 of O/M)

  • Hello,

    Thanks for chiming in rhyst! Also, if you use the same hi-hat each session (even if you have disconnected and reconnected it), then you shouldn't need to calibrate each time as long as you store your trigger settings after calibrating (see STORING TRIGGER SETTINGS in the STORING & COPYING chapter for more information).

    However, anytime you connect a different hi-hat from the previously connected one, you should calibrate it.

    To calibrate the hi-hat pedal:
    1. Connect the hi-hat pedal to the module but do not press it down.
    2. On the module, press EXT TRIG.
    3. You will see a page with items including "Sensitvty" and "Function." Use the CURSOR UP / DOWN buttons to highlight the "Input" field at the top of the screen then use the VALUE UP / DOWN buttons to select "HiHat."
    4. Press CAL (F4).
    5. With the hi-hat pedal completely raised ("open"), press CAL OPEN (F1 or F2) and wait for a message saying the process is complete.
    6. With the hi-hat pedal completely pressed ("closed"), press CAL CLSED (F3 or F4) and wait for a message saying the process is complete.
    7. Press EXIT to exit the calibration page (or press DRUM KIT to return to the main screen).
