That all depends on your sound source...
If it is possible to have one sound cut another one off, then you can assign all those sounds to one mute group.
Please elaborate on what you are using-

That's vintage stuff...94/95/96 Datawheel, so I'm trying to jog my memory about the pinout connections on that circuitboard.
Did you unplug the display ribbon? Something about that arrangement looks funny to me...
but I may need to get an older board out and put it on the bench to test my memory.  :o
Please reply directly to my support email and I'll try to help quickly-

Good day!

I have a problem with my Zendrum (ZX).
Led display always shows 188.
I tried to change the battery, but it did not help.



Then I disconnected the wires connecting the "motherboard" and cursor switch (see image).



Zendrum works, but it is impossible to configure.
What happened?

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.

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.

Do people feel that BFD (2 or 3) is better for live playing than NI's drummers? For me, NI Studio Drummer has a good response and sounds good, but BFD's nuance and sound (especially the cymbals') are a little better, but enough to make me permanently prefer BFD. Sound quality might simply be a matter of taste, and maybe I could do more tweaking in NI. But it seems to me that BFD is objectively more sensitive to live playing nuances. Do people agree with that, or does it once again depend on personal taste? I think the difference in responsiveness might only be noticeable to Zendrummers.

I've been testing out REAPER from http://www.reaper.fm/index.php, and it's working very well. It's lightweight and inexpensive.

I must say, NI's Studio Drummer doesn't sound nearly as good as BFD, and I spent a good amount of time tweaking.
