I'm working through a couple of different setup ideas for when I purchase my Zendrum ZAP.
I think I want to get a Roland FD-8 hi hat pedal for handling hh open positions and foot chicks and only need 2 triggers on the ZAP (1 for tip hits and 1 for shaft hits). This would free up triggers for more snare articulations which I'd like. I think I've got triggers mapped out to where I would like. Of course, I can't put it into practice yet but I think it might work
I think that the Alesis Trigger IO would be good for plugging the FD-8 into to send cc data.
I noticed that John Emrich mentioned this setup in another thread (Zendrum, Trigger IO, and FD-8).
My question is:
How would you plug things in for this setup? I've read the manuals for the Trigger IO and the ZAP and I can't quite figure it out. Of course, I plug the FD-8 into the HH input of the Trigger IO but then what? The Trigger IO only has a MIDI Out and and USB output.
So, would that mean...FD-8->Trigger IO(HH Input). Then...(MIDI Out of Trigger IO)->(MIDI IN of ZAP)->(MIDI Out of ZAP)->computer MIDI IN?
Would this even work? I'm usually good with signal flow and such but this is new to me.
Thanks for the help guys.
