To skip to the next setting without adjusting the current one, simply press ENTER until it appears.

Accompaniment Volume for Demo ("Accomp Vol")

This setting determines the volume of the accompaniment you hear when playing Demo Songs. Rotate the DATA dial to adjust the volume, and press ENTER to confirm your setting and turn to the next parameter for editing.

Percussion Volume for Demo ("D.Drum Vol")

This setting determines the volume of the drums you hear when playing Demo Songs. Rotate the DATA dial to adjust the volume, and press ENTER to confirm your setting and turn to the next parameter for editing.

Master Tune ("MasterTune")

This setting determines the pitch globally. Rotate the DATA dial to adjust the pitch (in either direction), and press ENTER to confirm your setting and turn to the next parameter for editing.

Count Sensitivity ("Count Sens")

The parameter for the sensitivity of the Count feature. Rotate the DATA dial to adjust the pitch (in either direction), and press ENTER to confirm your setting and turn to the next parameter for editing. We recommend setting a lower sensitivity than your normal performance.

Equalizer

You can use the Equalizer to adjust the global tone of the drums. There are 8 types of equalizer presets: 001 – Normal 1

002 – Normal 2

003 – Bass Boost

004 – Bass Mid

005 – Moderate

006 – Bright Mid

007 – Bright

008 – Bright High

Advanced

This option allows you to adjust more advanced settings for the individual drum pads, cymbal pads, or pedal. Rotate the DATA dial to select which setting you want to edit.

Notes:

1.You cannot edit the settings of additional zones (rim, edge, etc.) of multi-zonepads in this menu. You can only edit zone settings in Edit Mode.

2.Once you press the EXIT button from the main Advanced menu screen, the changes you made will be saved automatically and you will return to the Kit Selection Mode.

Sensitivity ("Sensitive")

Rotate the DATA dial to set the pad sensitivity (001 – 127). A higher value indicates a higher sensitivity. (Note that if the sensitivity is too high, it may cause unintended sounds and "retriggering.") Press ENTER to confirm and move to the next parameter, or press EXIT to cancel and return to the Advanced setting menu.

Dynamic Range ("Dynamic")

Rotate the DATA dial to set the maximum volume of sound that can be produced by that pad. To find the optimal setting for your performance style, strike the pad with the most force you would while playing. The dynamic value will be displayed on the screen (127 is the maximum value). Press ENTER to confirm and move to the next parameter, or press EXIT to cancel and return to the Advanced setting menu.

Trigger Curve ("Trigger")

This feature allows you select a curve from 6 presets to control the relation between the force with which you strike the pad and the volume of the sound it produces. Change the curve until the response feels as natural as possible. Rotate the DATA dial to choose a curve. Press ENTER to confirm and move to the next parameter, or press EXIT to cancel and return to the Advanced setting menu.

6

Crosstalk ("Cross Talk")

Crosstalk occurs when you strike one pad and the sound of another pad is heard. This "crosstalk" is a result of pads detecting the vibrations in the rack as you hit other pads. The module's crosstalk feature allows you to reduce how much the selected pad receives crosstalk from other pads.

1.Select a pad which is affected by crosstalk by pressing its PAD SELECT button or striking the pad then press ENTER.

2.Rotate the DATA dial to change the crosstalk value (0 – 100). The smaller the value, the less the pad will be affected by crosstalk. However, if the value is too low, it will be harder to get the pad to generate its sound when you hit it.

3.Press ENTER to confirm your setting or press EXIT to cancel.

4.To edit another pad's crosstalk setting, repeat Steps #1-3.Otherwise, press EXIT return to the Advanced setting menu.

Hi-HatPedal Setting

The hi-hatpedal has three different zones, so its settings are different from the other pads. When the pedal is in the "up" position (as determined by the "open threshold") striking thehi-hatcymbal pad will produce an "open"hi-hatsound. Depending on how heavily the pedal is pressed down (and depending on the "closed threshold"), striking thehi-hatcymbal pad will produce a "closed"hi-hatsound.

The "open" and "closed" thresholds mentioned above can be adjusted in the Sensitivity settings for the hi-hatpedal ("H. PEDAL"). Use the DATA dial and ENTER or EXIT buttons as you would in other Setup Mode menus. "0" represents the lowest position of the pedal (completely pressed) and "127" represents the highest position (completely raised).

The hi-hatpedal Sensitivity parameters are:

Open THR (open threshold): The lowest point the pedal can be pressed in order to produce the "open"hi-hatsound when striking thehi-hatcymbal pad (the lower the number, the lower the pedal position). This value must be higher than the closed threshold.

Close THR (closed threshold): The highest point the pedal can be raised in order to produce the "closed"hi-hatsound when striking thehi-hatcymbal pad (the higher the number, the higher the pedal position). This value must be lower than the open threshold.

Pedal THR (pedal threshold): The lowest position of the pedal. This value must be lower than the closed threshold.

Once you press the EXIT button from the main Advanced menu screen, the changes you made will be saved automatically and you will return to the Kit Selection Mode.

Reset

This feature allows you to recover the module's factory settings. When "Reset" is flashing, press ENTER to select it, then rotate the DATA dial to select one of the four types of reset operations.

Reset Kit – This will reset the sound parameters in all User Kits. When "Reset Kit" is flashing, press the ENTER button. "AreYouSure" will be displayed. Press ENTER to confirm or press EXIT to cancel.

Reset Setup – This willreset changes made in Setup Mode. When "ResetSetup" is flashing, press the ENTER button. "AreYouSure" will be displayed. Press ENTER to confirm or press EXIT to cancel.

Reset Song – This will delete all User Songs you have recorded. When "Reset Song" is flashing, press the ENTER button. "AreYouSure" will be displayed. Press ENTER to confirm or press EXIT to cancel.

Reset All – This will reset all the items listed above as well as the parameter changes in Kits that have been edited in the Advanced menus. When "Reset All" is flashing, press the ENTER button. "AreYouSure" will be displayed. Press ENTER to confirm or press EXIT to cancel.
