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.

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?

Personally I've built just one giant kit in BFD3 and then use different mappings on my Zendrum to facilitate the different kits.  This way I only load up one BFD project, but I have kits for Rock, Jazz, Brushes, Rods, World and various other combinations within all ready to go.

This is pretty common usage pattern which most folks have been using since the halcyon days of VSTs.  Even the Zendrumdrive uses this approach.

hi there, i'm new to the forum.  i just got my EXP in conjunction with BFD3 and love it.  what i'm trying to do is be able to have multiple kits set without having to load them in between songs.  i thought i'd be able to do this in MainStage and/or Logic but i found that once i loaded three kits my memory would crash.  i've got a brand new macbook pro but i guess BFD3 is such a hog you have to go one kit at a time.  i just can't imagine sitting there waiting for BFD to load up between every song, even if i want to only use three or four different presets.  any suggestions?
