Different hit behavior of some pads
« on: March 31, 2007, 12:19:41 PM »

I discovered a problem with my new Zendrum. I realized it when I was playing the first few notes, already:

Most of the Pads are OK. I can play very silent and get louder the harder I hit them, but some of the pads are dull. For the most quiet notes I have to hit the pads as hard as I need to hit the normal ones for a medium volume. To get the maximum volume, I have to hit the bad ones much harder than the good ones.

I told John at the Musikmesse about that and he said, I should press down the edges of the pads (of course not too hard). That didn't make it better.

Is that something that happened in the delivery week? Maybe condensation water, low temperature or sth. like that?

Ingo - loves the behavior of the good pads  ;)

When you PRESS on the new pads, really PRRRRESSSSS.  Not just as hard as you would hit them.  Put some weight into it.  THEN, check and assign the same sound to several pads - some sounds might have differing velocity curves to them.
