Hi Hat Bow Mutes Edge in Firmware 1.4

Strike Firmware 1.4
Open hi hat
Hit the edge hard
Lightly hit the bow
Notice how the edge sound is basically muted, and the bow takes over.

It sounds very unnatural.

I checked the other cymbals and they don't seem to do this. Just seems to be the hi hat.

  • Hello,

    Thanks for posting. 

    It sounds like you may need to make some adjustments to your triggers' utility settings. What do you have the trigger sensitivity, threshold, and curve set to? Does this happen with every kit on your module?

    • More than likely you need the pedal to stop both.It would be nice if there was a mute target option.I mainly use the module for a TMI and use software that can take one midi note and send out/route multiple notes for controlling multiple pieces of gear/software/lighting.
      I don't think there is any control with muting on the module.It's either on or off.
      I see there are priority settings,but that may be for over all performance and not mute group related.
      I'll connect a hi hat tomorrow and also check in the forum I belong to and see if anyone else has the same issue.
    • I did find that my saved presets did not have the hi hats in a mute group, but the new presets do.

      I haven't tested enough to know which is better overall though.

  • I am currently using OSv1.3 with the v1.4 content.I needed to be able to see the zones/strikes as I build/test my own triggers etc.The tiny kit/rug/spotlight is worthless for stage/performing.


    +1 but I have not updated to the v1.4 OS or content for only this reason. Please bring back as an option the Kit menu that shows separate zones.

  • I noticed it immediately when upgrading to 1.4 after playing 1.3 for 6 months. I find the hi-hat in general triggers much better but the subtlest bow hit even a ghost rebound muting the edge ring while fully open is driving me crazy.

  • At least I know I'm not alone on this! Has anyone fixed this on their hi hat? If so, would you let me know what your settings are? This would be a good starting point for me, being new to this type of electronic drum set this will help me immensely! I open up the triggering page on the module and I'm like"WTF"!
    I sold my acoustic drum set due to the noise and being isolated from everyone in the house. I then bought a cheap $300 electronic set and played that until it was time to treat myself to an upgrade, and the Strike Pro Kit is definitely an upgrade!
