Can you adjust the NITRO Drum Pads velocity and sensitive?

Are the Nitro drumpads velocity sensitive like the old DM6 drumpads? The product page just states that they are dynamic.

Thanks

  • Hello,

    Thanks for the post. I'd like to help! Yes you can by adjusting the settings below. The Utility settings let you further customize your pad settings and adjust the module's MIDI settings.

    To adjust the Utility settings:

    1. Hit the pad whose settings you want to adjust, or press its corresponding Pad Select button.

    2. Press Utility, then press Page/Select until the desired setting appears in the display:

    • SEN (Pad sensitivity): Controls how responsive a pad is when you hit it. The higher the value, the less forcefully you need to play to generate a loud hit.

    • THR (Pad threshold): Controls how forcefully you have to hit the pad to generate a sound. The higher the value, the harder you have to hit it.

    • CRO (Pad crosstalk): Crosstalk is the unintentional triggering of a pad when an adjacent pad is hit. The higher the value, the less likely the pad will be triggered by crosstalk.

    • CUR (Pad velocity curve): Controls the pad's dynamic response relative to the force (velocity) of your hit. The curves are shown in the Appendix.

    • R-S (Pad rim sensitivity): Controls how responsive a pad's rim is when you hit it.

    • S-S (Hi-Hat "splash" sensitivity): Controls how responsive the hi-hat "splash" effect is when you hit the pedal. (To create this sound, tap your foot on the pedal but lift it up immediately instead of leaving your foot down.)

    • LOC (Local Mode): See MIDI Settings for more information.

    • GM (General MIDI Mode): See MIDI Settings for more information.

    3. Use the < and > buttons to adjust the value. To save the settings, press Save. Otherwise, they will return to their default settings when you power the module off.

  • Hello,
    I've adjusted the various kick drums on my Nitro with max SES (16), min THR (0) and max VOL (32) but the kick is never more than about 1/2 the volume from the pedal compared to pressing the button on the module. I can match the button/pad volumes on all the other pads, but the kick can never get close to the kick-button's volume. Do you have any suggestions?

  • It turned out that the trigger was hitting a dead-ish spot on the kick pad - I adjusted that to hit a different spot and can get full volume now.
