I got it worked out. I bought a $4 volume switch, a $3 audio cable and a $2 audio jack from Radioshack to make a control for the hihat. When plugged into my TD-20 hihat control it works to make a half open hi hat when dialed in just right and I don't need a pedal. I set one trigger for #42 closed hat and a different trigger for #46 open and it plays half open instead of fully open and closes when I hit #42. yay! I can be free from pedals now.

I'm trying to get one instrument (hihat closed) to mute another instrument (hihat open) when it is played like the mutegroup function on the DM-10. I want to play hihat without a pedal but the TD-20 only allows fully open or fully closed sounds if no pedal is used. I can assign a half open hihat to an aux. instrument on the TD-20 but it doesn't mute or turn off when I hit the hihat closed instrument. Is there a way for one note to play it's note and turn off another in either zenedit or in the TD-20?

Hey all.
Discovered something weird tonight... my knobs do not go all the way up to 127 after calibrating everything.
They range from 0-124, and appear to be on the same response curve as the "3" setting (e.g. the beginning of the turn rockets up the value and then it slows down to where the increases only come a couple per centimeter of rotation)

I found that, if I use ZenEdit and drop the "max" output of the knobs to about 96 (they started ~98.5 after calibration) then they will read all the way up to 127.

So, 1) I'm confused why calibration of the knobs doesn't allow reaching the value of 127 by default, and
2) I'm confused why setting the "max" output of these knobs to 96 results in a value of 127 being reached. You would think that setting the max to 127 would result in 127.

Is there a way to make one trigger play it's note and turn off another note either on the Zendrum or TD-20? This was easy when in my Yamaha S90 keyboard.

The TD-20 doesn't have a half-open note number, but #26 is 'open edge' and generally is passable enough.

I know I'm about ten years behind in technology and this must have been resolved before but I couldn't find an answer.

I just bought a used TD-20 and want to control the hi hat between two triggers with one being half open and the other closed. If I use note 46 (open HH) on one trigger and note 42 (closed HH) on the other, when I hit 46 it sounds and then when I hit 42 it turns off note 46 and plays 42 which is perfect except I don't want the HH sound of 46 to be all the way open. I can make note 46 another instrument in the kit and edit it but then it won't turn the note off when I hit 42. How do I make one trigger play it's note and turn off another note? Or how do I edit the TD-20 Hihat so that note 46 is only half open?

How is the Launchpad Mini's playing response and sensitivity for finger drumming?

Yes, KMI's stuff is inconsistent. I'm unable to program the QuNexus's controller layer from any computer, and the dev has no troubleshooting advice. And my QuNeo's rotating controllers have a nice fingerdrumming sensitivity that none of the 16 square pads has. You do have to bear down on the sliders more than you'd like to. Meanwhile, the QuNexus's sensitivity would make the older QuNeo much more usable. Apparently, they changed technology between the two devices. I asked precisely that question on the KMI forums after buying the QuNexus and before buying the QuNeo, but the answer they gave me was wrong. I think they don't comprehend how sensitive our fingers have become from playing ZenDrum triggers.

I picked up a QuNexus, and the playing response is actually not bad. It's a little bit more cramped than I wanted, but it does have other uses, plus it's really small and light and USB powered. I was so happy with it, I bought a QuNeo, which is partially designed (its 4 x 4 array) for finger drumming, but it's much less sensitive than the QuNexus so that you can't tap it to play, rather, you have to whack it. It will suit some people, but it's useless to me as a drum controller, although I can use it for other things.

I love my QuNexus.
Funny you mention the sensitivity issues on the QuNeo. I had the same issues with how responsive parts of it were (the sliders, in particular, were really dull, and the buttons really needed bearing down to activate) but the pads themselves were quite tappable. I ended up exchanging it for the Nexus and a Launchpad Mini.
Neat devices, but it seems KMI doesn't have the consistency I'd hope for from a professional instrument manufacturer.
