Yamaha Triggers and a Strike MultiPad

Hello,

I am wondering if my Yamaha drum triggers, hi hat controllers and cymbal pad can work with a Strike MultiPad

    Thanks for posting! We apologize for the delayed reply. 

    Most drum pads with a 1/4 TRS input will work with the Strike Multipad, same with the Cymbal pads. In regards to the Hi-Hat controller, if it's a non-latching momentary pedal it should work with HH input on the back of the Multipad. 

    The external trigger inputs on the back of SMP will support dual zone triggers as well :) 

    Hope this helps!

  • Hi Mark,

    Unfortunately, Yamaha has chosen to make their pads/triggers, and pedals proprietary, by using an onboard preprocessor/encoder. While most other electronic drums follow the standard set by Roland, Yamaha's will NOT function with other manufacturer's gear.

  • Hello, Myke

    That is good to know! I'm sure you're not the only person trying to use them with the Strike Multipad or other Alesis modules, so this will be helpful. 

    We appreciate your feedback :)

    Hi
    Can it works with Yamaha DT50S and DT50K? To be more accurate, are triggers settings already recorded and tested by Alesis or not? It could be help if you can issue a compatibility list on website. I didn't find it in the manual.
    Thanks

    PS Congratulations for Strike Multipad. It looks an exciting product!

  • This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Hi hat and pedal compatibility with Strike Multipad.

    1. To those who are asking the question, Yamaha pedals and triggers are NOT compatible with anyone else's products, as they have an onboard preprocessor that makes them proprietary to Yamaha kits.
    2. The Strike Multipad does NOT support the hi hat input as a controller. I am rather surprised that Alesis would produce what is obviously such a great product, then leave out such an important feature. I will be returning this unit and going with the Roland Octopad. Perhaps, if future firmware supports this necessary feature, I will give it another look.
