I’m confused and annoyed

Kick switch delay

I plugged in a switch pedal (like one you would use as a sustain pedal on piano) into my sample pad pro to use as a kick switch and it works it's just really delayed is there anyway to fix the delay?

  • Hi Jonathan,

    Thanks for posting. 

    I haven't heard of delay occurring when using a pedal. Does your pedal have a TS or TRS connection? Have you tried using another pedal?

  • I ended up re-configuring my setup. Faster computer and regular kick head trigger setup.

    New problem I have is I inherited a roland pd-8 dual zone pad. I've plugged it into the pad 1 input (stereo TRS) that came with the pad. When I plug it in and hit the pad I see on the display ext A, however when I hit the rim pf the pad it doesn't switch to ext B. When I manually change the sound for extA and then set another sound for ext B. Wherever I play (the pad center or the rim) only the ext A sound plays and I can't seem to get the sample pad to play the rim sound. is there a setting I'm missing somewhere? I saw a demo before I purchased the sample pad pro that showed that any dual zone pad or trigger will work. All help is appreciated.
    • Have you tried another pad, Dean?

      I tried this out with my SamplePad Pro and another trigger and was able to trigger both the head and the rim. I was also able to assign a sample to EXT 1A and 1B, respectively. I'm not familiar with that other pad you're using, but if you try moving around the rim in multiple areas, does it trigger? Can you confirm the rim of that pad functions with, say, another module?

      Have you tried another TRS cable to confirm the cable you're currently using isn't faulty at all?
