Taking Care of your
Multi-Pad & Drum machine
Location
Keep the unit away from direct sunlight, high temperature sources, and excessive humidity to
prevent deformation, discoloration, or more serious damage.
Power Supply
• Turn the power switch OFF when the SDMP1 is not in use.
• The AC adapter should be unplugged if the SDMP1 is not to be used for an extended
period of time.
• Avoid plugging the AC adapter into an outlet that is also powering high-consumption
appliances such as electric heaters or televisions. Also avoid using multi-plug adapters,
since these can reduce sound quality, cause operation errors and result in possible
damage.
• Turn OFF the SDMP1’s power switch and all related devices prior to connecting or
disconnecting cables to avoid damaging the unit.
Handling and Transport
• Never apply excessive force to controls, connectors, and other parts.
• Unplug cables by gripping the plug firmly. Do not pull on the cables.
• Disconnect all cables before moving the module.
• Physical shocks caused by dropping, bumping, or placing heavy objects on the module
can result in scratches and more serious damage.
Cleaning
• Clean the module with a dry, soft cloth.
• A slightly damp cloth may be used to remove stubborn grime and dirt.
• Never use cleaners such as alcohol or paint thinner.
• To avoid discoloration, do not place vinyl objects on top of module.
Electrical Interference
• The SDMP1 contains digital circuitry and may cause interference if placed too close to
radio or television receivers. If this occurs, move the SDMP1 further away from the affected
equipment.
Service and Modification
• There are no user-serviceable parts in the SDMP1.
• Do not attempt to open the drum module or make any changes in the circuits or parts of
the unit. This would void the warranty.

Note: If the pedal functions as a general trigger, you can adjust the Sensitivity,
Threshold and Velocity Curve just like the pads. But if it functions as a hi-hat pedal
(marked as Trigger 14) you can adjust an additional parameter, Splash Sensitivity.
Splash Sensitivity: This adjusts the sensitivity of the splash pedal, 1 - 5.
Note: If the pedal functions as play/pause control or fill control (marked as Trigger
13), the pedal will have the same function as the corresponding key on the panel.

Patterns
Pattern Structure
The SDMP1 includes 50 preset patterns (1 - 50) and 50 user pattern sets (51 - 100).
A “pattern” is the smallest rhythm unit in the SDMP1. Patterns contain several parts and
they last several beats. A single pattern-set actually includes 4 patterns, 2 in sub-set A and
two in sub-set B.
Patterns in the same sub-set — including the Main pattern and any Fills — will have the same
length and will share the same drum kit.
