Loading a trigger setup file
EN
If you’re using a Yamaha or Roland electronic drum kit, you can easily make trigger settings for each pad simply by loading the appropriate trigger
setup file into the aD5. For the electronic drum kits that are supported, refer to the “Pad Compatibility List” PDF.
NOTE
When you load a trigger setup file, the trigger setup inside the aD5 is erased. If necessary, back it up before you proceed.
Preparations
• An Internet-connected Mac or PC
• SD card / SDHC card (Up to 32 GB)
• aD5 (firmware ver 1.10 or later)
Steps on your Mac/PC
1Download the trigger setup file from the ATV website.
http://products.atvcorporation.com/drums/ad5/
As appropriate for the manufacturer of the drum kit you’re using, download either “trig_YAMAHA_kits.zip” or “trig_Roland_kits.zip.”
2Decompress the downloaded zip file.
Unpacking the zip file creates a folder that contains folders for each drum kit.

trig_R_TD-30KV.ad5bk

3Copy the folder of the same name as the drum kit you’re using into the “aD5BK” folder of your SD card.

5When the screen indicates “OK” press [NEXT] to proceed.
6Repeat steps 4—5 in the same way.
The aD5 calculates the state of crosstalk for all of the connected pads.
KICK > SNARE > TOM 1 > TOM 2 > TOM 3 > HIHAT > CRASH > RIDE > AUX 1 > AUX 2
**We recommend that you play a rimshot when striking the snare pad.
**If you press [RETRY], the previous strikes are discarded.
**If the specified pad is not connected, press [SKIP].
7When the following screen appears, play the pads to verify that there is no crosstalk, and then press [EXIT].
**If there is crosstalk, press [YES] and repeat the wizard once again.
