As I said in the other thread, My new Z1-09 with wireless, is HERE!
The zebrawood instrument looks stunning. After a couple of confusions, I was able to hook up tha wired steup to garage band on my macbookpro. It worked but the built-in speakers sucked, so I had to attach my klipsch iFi (basically computer speakers with an iPod dock) and then it was great.
I did notice something about a few triggers' response. In the default setup that comes up, both the T1 trigger and E1 trigger are attached to note 42 which is Closed Hi-hat. But the amount of sound that comes out is different. T1 produces a lot louder sound.
At first I thought that because of hand position or choice of fingers I'm hitting the triggers with different power. But then I conciously tried to keep the force in my attack constant and there T1 produced almost double the sound of E1. Moreover, to get full volume when I hit E1 hard, I start getting cross-talk from Crash Cymbal 2 on T4. E1 is the only trigger where I've noticed cross-talk (or whatever the correct jargon is).
I also notice this difference in volume between snare F2 and L2 but the difference there is much less.
Anyone know the explanation for this? Is it the way it's programmed, or is it the nature of the triggers, or is it something else?
