Is nitro module capable of transmitting midi cc data?

Would like to know if the nitro module transmits midi cc data... so far I can't seem to make it work for my hi hat... is it switch on/off instead of variable? I read somewhere it was a continuous variable hi hat pedal but not working as such.

Thnx

  • Okay, here is what I THINK you MAY need to do! I am NOT a MIDI expert YET! BUT I am what appears to be a dying breed of die hard MIDI Enthusiasts who are not only still using the interface but finally moving into new ground with USB MIDI! YES it DOES transmit the control data! You have to manipulate the parameters and you may have to tweak them differently for different controllers to work right! This could still be a bit more experimental than you might like it to be but as with anything, you may have to in order to get it to work as you would like it to! Also, think of any setting that you may not have adjusted that would ALLOW this to happen on whatever system you are attempting to get your Alesis Module to communicate with via MIDI! What SOFTWARE are you attempting to do this with? Ableton Live OR AUDACITY for example! This is to illustrate how one simple thing like which software you are using will dramatically effect your user experience and ultimately your entire session! Either a great success or a total waste of time with really nothing learned if it is still not working! YET, I STILL LOVE MIDI and continue to struggle with all sorts of nuances and adjustments in the MIDI settings that seem negligible to the eye but that make all sorts of wonderful differences in what I am creating or experimenting with musically! Most important, if for one minute the confusion of the cables or the ticking of the boxes becomes anything less than FUN, TAKE A BREAK! Think about it and then go back to it a bit later on. It will make more sense and you might just figure it out! Best wishes to all my MIDI MADMEN out there who REFUSE TO LET MIDI DIE WITHOUT A PERFECTLY GOOD EXPLANATION!

  • Hi! Thnx for the quick answer... I'm pretty proficient with midi as well, been using in for the last 20 something years... hehe.

    I used to have an Alesis DM10 (first version)... but a friend drummer of mine kept it and I moved to a different country... so I got the Alesis Nitro.

    I'm currently connecting via USB Midi to my Macbook pro, there I'm using either Superior Drummer 3 or Addictive Drums 2. Both take CC Channel 4.

    In the DM10 y used to receive CC4 when I moved the pedal, so it was easy to map that to either software. But Nitro doesn't seem to transmit the CC4 when the pedal is pressed and released...

    I've made an ugly hack with a PlayStation 3 Controller and a program called ControllerMate that turns game controllers into midi software (very much like Max in Ableton Live). Works wonders... but it's a hack nonetheless and I'd rather have it go only thru the Nitro Module... less connections, less hassle.

    I'm using SD3 and Addictive Drums in standalone for the moment... but the solution would be funneled into Studio One, Logic, Ableton. Depends a lot on what I'm working on.

    Regards

  • The Hi-Hat pedal included with the Nitro Mesh Kit is a continuous variable type pedal.(standard Nitro probably the same module).
    This pedal allows for open, half-open, and closed hi-hat sounds, and will also allow for "chick" and "splash" sounds when the pedal is pressed down and released without striking the hi-hat cymbal pad.

    There is a splash adjustment under utility..

    Check to see if CC4 is actually being generated...
    (PC/MIDIOX..or MAC/MIDI-MONITOR)

    I believe the Nitro module was based off the DM6 module and is GM..

  • The sounds for open, close, half-open etc are different MIDI notes. I don't think the controller, though it may internally be continous, is recorded or sent out in any form. It's just measured by the module to determine which note to send when a sound is triggered.
