Is there a way to make a zendrum work with the newer modules (Roland TD-25, TD-15, etc) that don't have midi in?  I know Alternate Mode sells midi to usb cables to go directly into your computer.  Could a cable like that go directly into the module to receive midi?

Was wondering the same thing myself.  I asked 2Box Support.  The reply:  "if you can set up the Hihat to MIDI send:
DrumIt Five MIDI note for HIHAT Edge, Bow and the Pedal  + velocity data for these 3 zone ( 1-127)  and finally controller data for open to close, than it should work."

I, unfortunately am not much of a techie (and don't want to be) so I don't really know what that means.  I suspect I could figure it out but I'm not $1200 confident I can, so...

Hi folks: Is anyone out there using a 2 Box system? I am interested in whether
1: The hi hat issue has been resolved.
2: Does the 2BOX receive Program Change messages.
3: Has anyone imported melodic sounds like bass guitar into the 2 Box system.

It seems out of all the hardware modules, the 2 BOX could be a winner. I know there have been some issues with the hi hat so I thought I'd check in and see. Thanks in advance for all input\observations

hi guys i downloaded a  version of the soft synth poise. i cannot get it to work with the zendrum. if anyone has suggestion any help appreciated. i am sure it is a simple output or midi channel tweak. i am using it with cubase which works fine with bfd3 and superior drummer. here is a sample video to show what it can do. ok thanks

Okay, I'm using MIDI-OX to test both the hatKAT and a generic volume expression pedal to compare (calibrating again when I switch, of course). The Zendrum receives/sends no signal until the hatKAT is depressed more than half way. With the volume expression pedal, the Zendrum sends/receives a signal throughout the full range of motion of the pedal. I'm afraid the problem (or limitation?) is with the hatKAT itself, which is a shame because I really like its spring action.

Alas, I haven't purchased ZenEdit yet, it's on my list to do for sure. The Nord Drum 2 doesn't have a hi-hat control input, just 6 trigger inputs and MIDI. So I'm trying to use the Zendrum to be the bridge from the hatKAT to the ND2.

I figure at this point we've exhausted the Zendrum end of the cable, thanks much David and DrumWagon for your help.

I wonder if there are any users with specific experience with the hatKAT to tell me if this is just how it works or if it's malfunctioning?

I'd hook up the output to your computer and use MIDI-OX, etc to analyze what's being output.  Does the pedal work when connected directly to the Nord? 
You can also export your SysEx into ZenEdit to check what the calibration settings are for the pedal and try tweaking them.

I am certain it's a Z4 circuit board, I've followed the instructions in the manual to get the version number and it's '41'. I've just gone through the calibration again and I'm getting the same behavior. Any other ideas?

If it's a 4.x board, you should try to run the calibration function (outlined in the manual) to set the upper and lower bounds of the pedal sweep.

Hello,
Could it be that your Zendrum is a version 3.0 instead of a current Z4 circuitboard?

I recently got the hatKAT pedal to use with my Zendrum to convert to MIDI CC to send to my Nord Drum 2. However, when I move the pedal, the MIDI In indicator on the Zendrum doesn't light up until it's halfway depressed. My guess is that the hatKAT pedal is sending a bipolar signal where the Zendrum is expecting a unipolar signal. Am I correct on that?

Is there any way to fix this issue in my Zendrum setup so that I can use the full range of physical motion on my hatKAT?
