Having issues with 3 zone ride

Hi everyone so Im having a major problem with my ride. I just got the dm10 mesh and i love it, I have no crosstalk or any issues with any of my drums after tweaking. My only issue has been my ride and more specifically the bow edge area. So just to give you an example of whats going on whenever i tap the ride i get a nice ping sound. But when Im trying to activate the crash ride sound on the edge, it triggers both the edge crash and the ping sound simultaneously. At first I thought it was the settings that i had it set to so I reset the entire module. The same issue persist. It wasn't doing this when i first set up the kit but the next day it started to do this and its becoming quite annoying. especially when wanting to record and getting both sounds triggering. it sounds fake and unmusical.

  • Hi Brian,

    Thanks for posting. 

    It sounds like you'll need to adjust your sensitivity, threshold, and retrigger settings. Follow my steps below to learn how to do this. I've also included a video that will walk you through the process.

    Sensitivity By increasing the Sensitivity setting for a specific trigger, that trigger will respond to lighter hits more forcefully.

    To adjust this setting, follow these steps:

    1. From the main screen, press the EXT TRIG button.
    2. Use the CURSOR buttons to highlight the Input field.
      Once the Input field is highlighted, use the VALUE/TEMPO dial to choose the trigger you want to adjust.
      (ie. If you would like to adjust the main head area of the snare drum, choose SnrHd. If you want to adjust the snare drum rim area, choose SnrRim, etc.)
    3. Use the CURSOR buttons to highlight the Sensitivty field.
    4. Use the VALUE/TEMPO dial to increase or decrease the sensitivity of the affected trigger.
    5. Press the DRUM KIT button to return to the main screen.

    Threshold The Threshold setting is similar to Sensitivity in that if it is set to a low value, a very light hit will trigger a sound.  However, the difference is this: If the Threshold setting is increased, there will be absolutely no sound until the pad is hit with a certain amount of force.  This allows for accidental unintentional hits to automatically be eliminated in real-time.

    To adjust this setting, follow these steps:

    1. From the main screen, press the EXT TRIG button.
    2. Use the CURSOR buttons to highlight the Input field.
      Once the Input field is highlighted, use the VALUE/TEMPO dial to choose the trigger you want to adjust.
      (ie. If you would like to adjust the main head area of the snare drum, choose SnrHd. If you want to adjust the snare drum rim area, choose SnrRim, etc.)
    3. Press F2 (TRIG).
    4. Use the CURSOR buttons to highlight the Threshold field.
    5. Use the VALUE/TEMPO dial to increase or decrease the Threshold setting of the affected trigger.
    6. Press the DRUM KIT button to return to the main screen.

    ReTrigger The ReTrigger setting focuses on how quickly one strike comes after another, rather than how much force a pad is being hit with.  By adjusting the ReTrigger setting higher, any accidental secondary hits that come immediately after the first intentional hit, will be eliminated.  The lower the setting, the more likely the second hit will be heard.

    To adjust this setting, follow these steps:

    1. From the main screen, press the EXT TRIG button
    2. Use the CURSOR buttons to highlight the Input field.
      Once the Input field is highlighted, use the VALUE/TEMPO dial to choose the trigger you want to adjust.
      (ie. If you would like to adjust the main head area of the snare drum, choose SnrHd. If you want to adjust the snare drum rim area, choose SnrRim, etc.)
    3. Press F2 (TRIG).
    4. Use the CURSOR buttons to highlight the ReTrigger field.
    5. Use the VALUE/TEMPO dial to increase or decrease the ReTrigger setting of the affected trigger.
    6. Press the DRUM KIT button to return to the main screen.
