SamplePad4 randomly changing kits

I have a SamplePad4 which i use live with my band. It is mounted on a stand with flat plate type adapter. The problem I'm having is that the unit randomly changes kits while I'm playing. I'm not talking about false triggering, but the whole drum kit changes. I swapped out the unit as I was told by Alesis that it was defective, however, I'm still having the same problem.

It's very random, and might only happen once per show, but I can't figure out what is happening. I have the sensitivity set at 2 for all pads.

Could stage vibration be causing this? Any help would be appreciated.

  • Hi Jeff,

    It looks like you'd called in and spoke with Rich earlier, and it was determined the issue is stemming from the vibrations of the stage. Check out this helpful guide here to reduce the likelihood of this occurring: Alesis Samplepad Pro - How To Optimize Crosstalk, Sensitivity, and Triggering

    Hope this helps! Let me know if there's anything else I can help you with!
