Hello!

I've been using Ezdrummer 2 for some time now. Recently i had a small problem with my Roland TD4k and decided to reset all pads and eventually the whole system.

Since then, i can't get my sideshot or rimshot (the 'wooden' sound you hear when you strike the rim of the snare) to sound all the time + it isn't loud enough when you do hear it.

So my questions are these:
- how can ik get my rimshot to sound all the time?
- How can i make it louder ( i already tried the 'rim gain' in my td4k, but all it does is let it sound the snare rimshot? not the 'wooden' sound i want too hear.

thank you for your help!

Hi,

I think you need to play around with the sensitivity, velocity curve and crosstalk in your module to make it respond like you want it to.
There may also be a switch setting for rimshot/cross stick or similar.
We're talking about triggering the 'Sidestick' articulation (note#37) in EZdrummer 2, right?

BR,
John

Hi John,

yes, we are talking about that one. The thing is, i've downloaded the manual for the td4k and looked at velocity, rim gain and rim adjust. The problem is that, when i set my rim gain too high, the sound also changes from the sidestick to the rimshot sound.

Can i set the rimshot note to the sidestick note when it comes in ezdrummer 2? Because i can see the different notes coming in when playing..

Btw: when i turn of xstick volume in my Roland td4k , then the rimshot sound always plays. When i set my xstick to the highest level (3) it plays the sidetalk sound 🙂

Hi,

you cannot change MIDI note assignments nor change volume of individual articulations of a drum in EZdrummer 2, those are features available in Superior 2.
I'm afraid you will have to experiment with the module settings.

BR,
John

Thank you for your answers. But i did always work, that's why i don't think SD2 is necessary. But i will try and look at the settings. When i have an solution i will report it here.

Just saying for ultimate control even with TD4 module , the SD@ plug would give you exactly what you want.

I get what you're saying. But i managed to fix it.

My td4k module is able to reroute midi numbers. So i disabled the xstick. This way, i know i always hear a rimshot and never a sidestick sound. So, now i have changed the midi note for the rimshot to the midi note for a sidestick. That worked!
