Trigger settings
You’ll need to make trigger settings when using the aD5 for the first time or after you’ve changed
the types of pads. This allows the data from the pad sensors to be processed correctly so that the
aD5’s performance capabilities can be fully utilized.
You must set the following three items.
<1> C
rosstalk cancel
setting (p. 9)
<2> T
rigger setting for
each pad (p. 10)
This prevents the “crosstalk” that can occur when the impact of striking a pad
reaches another pad, unintentionally triggering it.
Complete this setting simply by striking each pad as instructed by the crosstalk
cancel wizard.
These settings specify the response of each of your pads to ensure that the sound
accurately reflects the output of the pad sensor.
Simply select the model name of each pad, and the typical response is specified.
