Mapping the “change kit” action to a trigger on Alesis DM10

Is there a way of mapping the "change kit" action to the triggers on the Alesis DM10? For example I would like to map "move 1 up/next" to the kick trigger so when I kick it, my drum preset goes from 5 to 6. I'd like to use this to be able to quickly and easily switch the kit (using the volume up/down or the dial is clunky, slow and not really practical).

I feel as if I read somewhere a few months ago that this is possible, but now I can't figure out how to do it so I'm starting to think it might not be possible and that I got it wrong. Thanks.

  • Hello,

    Thanks for posting. 

    Yes, you can do this. Follow these steps below:

    1. Press EXT TRIG to enter the main Ext. Trig Menu page. The first page shown should be INP (F1).
    2. Select the trigger whose parameters you want to edit by pressing NOTE CHASE then striking the desired trigger. Alternatively, you can highlight the trigger name at the top of the screen using the 3. Cursor Up/Down buttons to highlight it and use the Value Up/Down buttons or Value Dial to change it. 
    4. Use Cursor Up/Down to move through the menu items and Value Up/Down buttons o the Value Dial to change the Function.
    5. Select Next Kit.
    6. When you have finished making your edits, you can press Exit or any button that will enter another screen (i.e., Drum kit, Utility, etc.) Your edits will remain for that session (i.e., until you turn off the module).

    I hope this helps!
