Help with BFD
« on: February 02, 2007, 05:15:40 AM »

I'm forwarding up a post from the old Yahoo forum for a friend who asked about BFD programming issues. Some of you guys have much more face time with BFD than I do, so step up and speak the truth! I suggested going out of the Zendrum into the Kat so the pedals would still work, but he only wants to haul around the Zendrum (imagine THAT!)
Thank you all for the knowledge! 109

I just got this awesome tool (zendrum) and already own BFD. I 'm trying to
figure out how to get the high hat notes to play by just assigning
notes to pads without using a continuous controller like the hatpedal
I use with my drumkat. I have assigned the different hit types to
different pads but BFD seems to think the pedal is closed and stuck
there even though I don't have one plugged in. I undefined controller
004 to (none). All notes still sound closed not variably open to the
various notes. It may not be possible to use BFD without a continuous
hit hat controller. I don't know. Can anyone help me with this one?

Frank contacted me directly and his issue has been solved.  BFD has a HUGE amount of play options that appear as check marked boxes.  In his case, he had the "All Hi Hats Variable" box checked.  That feature is used when you are playing a MIDI file with only one HH note and you need to make it more musical.

If you have questions, please feel free to post them here.  I spend most of my free time checking in at this forum.  If you still have questions you can also PM me, but there are a bunch of Zendrummers moving into the world of BFD and it would be nice for everyone to see the topics.

Hope this helps,
