Thanks man. I've watched this like a hundred times already :). I just feel like when it comes to adjust the little slider things (openness 1,2,3, etc.) I'm just farting around and not really getting it right. I wish toontrack would really break it down, like A/B what happens when you do X and Y and so on. I wondered about the smoothing effect too. I cranked that up all the way to 12 (past 11!!) and it didn't seem to do much. It seems like the certain HH's on certain kits work better than others as well. The 15" Paistes seem to be the smoothest. I don't get why that is the case either. It seems like on the the thinner hats on the drier kits the transitions just have these huge jumps between the open settings. SD3 rocks over all it's just so frustrating to be so close with everything and then the HH's are this constant battle. First world problems to the extreme 😉

Perhaps you could record when you are playing your HH and save with a Project and attach it here, so someone may take a look at your setup and the triggering data?
Thanks John here is a sample. The kit here is a modified 70's dry kit with 14" Zildjian K's. In the audio I am hitting the Hats on the top (not the edge) and slowly opening the hats with my foot. Where it becomes noticeable is when it gets to the last couple open sounds. Then I hit it and open and close with my foot at the same time and you can hear the lack of smoothness. The transitions seem to 'jump' from one to the next. Thanks!
please open your SD3 Project and record when hitting the HH the same way as in the MP3 example, so you demonstrate your issue.
Next, Save this Project as an .sd3p file at a convenient place, like the Desktop.
ZIP archive this .sd3p file by right-clicking (or Ctrl+click since you're on Mac) and 'Compress'. This is a file format that can be attached to a post here.

you have a shortened Level Envelope release in the OH Dyn Mic in the Mixer, which makes the HH sound cut off in that microphone. Turn this off. You can solo the HH mic and hear the difference.
Also, since the Open Edge 5 is totally open and very different in sonic character, I'd recommend turing it off if you are going to open and close the HH slowly like this.
I hope this helps.
