Trigger Question
« on: April 24, 2007, 11:14:20 PM »

I'm using a Roland TD-7 which is working great, however if I press and hold the Zendrum trigger I get multiple hits is this normal? Or do I change a setting on the Zen or the TD-7?

That happens to me to sometimes; I'm playing a DTX 2.0.  I wouldn't recommend doing it all that often as I'm not sure what mechanical process is happening to execute that and I wouldn't want to damage my instrument, but it's been happening to me since I started with mine and I've detected no problems.

By what I hear on the forum once in awhile you have to press down on the pads hard to reseat them, so I can't imagine that applying some steady pressure on them when playing would harm them.................or am I wrong.   Again if I press on snare pad it does a short roll is this correct or will switching polarity take care of that.

This is normal.  It seems to me that when you apply pressure, it is just sending continuous note on/note off messages s fast as the pad can respond, based on the gate/mask times set in the instrument.  I wouldn't recommend doing it a lot tho!
