Over the past few months I've been putting together my setup. First, I purchased my Zendrum ZAP (Bubinga) from David back in December '08. Love it! Recently I've added an Alesis Trigger io and an Alternate Mode HATpedal.
I've got things set up and working with Toontrack Superior Drummer 2.0.2 and am getting everything I expected out of this setup. I've set up 2 triggers on the ZAP for hi-hat. 1 triggering closed (shaft) hits and 1 trigger set for tip articulation. Both are working great with the HATpedal/Trigger io, and S2 combo.
My question has to do with the closed pedal sound or, also called, 'pedal chick' sound. I get a closed pedal sound but it isn't dynamic...velocity speaking. I get 127 velocity level with every foot stop no matter how lightly I stomp.
The HATpedal has 3 outputs and I'm using the 'continuous controller responding to foot position' jack so I can get the varying positions of the open/close sounds.
So, is this a limitation of the pedal, the Trigger io, or some other mysterious force that is stymieing my ability to get velocity sensitive pedal chick sounds?
