  • Hello,

    Thanks for posting. Sorry you're having issues with your Nitro Kit. 

    It sounds like you might be experiencing crosstalk. Every time you strike a pad, the entire kit vibrates. Vibrations travel through the rack and can sometimes trigger other pads.  This tendency is called 'cross-talk', and due to the physical nature of drums, it is unavoidable (even on an acoustic kit). A more accurate description of this setting would be "crosstalk compensation", as there really isn't a way to prevent the physical tendency for vibrations to travel. This setting, however, uses an algorithm to separate intentional hits from unintentional crosstalk triggers; the result, when tweaked correctly, is that you only hear the sounds you want to hear. Most often this setting does not need to be adjusted, but some playing styles (heavy hitters) may want to consider fine-tuning it to improve response. If you're noticing pads canceling each other out or pads triggering randomly/when striking a different pad, this is the setting for you. Adjusting the cross-talk setting to somewhere in the middle is usually a good start.

    To adjust this setting, follow these steps:

    • Press Voice button to enter the Kit Selection page (if you are not already viewing it).
    • Hit the pad whose settings you want to edit.
    • Press Utility button to enter the available settings.
    • CRO (Cross Talk) will be the third option after you press Utility button three times.
    • Use the Left (<) and Right (>) buttons to adjust the function.
    • To save the adjustments, Select the Voice button.
    • Press SAVE button.
    • Choose a user kit (between 25- 40).
    • Press Save button again.

    I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any additional questions.

  • I will try this and let you know! Thank you for the help. However, i dont think this is the issue, the drumkit was fine, i purchased a new cable(had to give the original to my nephew for his kit) and now nothing works, its not crosstalk it literally only triggers a cymbal when i hit a drum or it trigers the rim of the snare when i hit a cymbal, it seems that the cable is faulty... Like a configuration issue but from the cable itself

  • OK, if that's the case, I would also suggest performing a factory reset on the module: Hold the < and > arrow buttons simultaneously while powering on the unit. The screen will show "RST---" for one second and then the module will restore back to the factory default settings and be ready to use.
