DM10 Trigger Config files (Studio or Pro)

(1/19) > >>

***Stock DM10 Config files are attached to the bottom of this post***
I'm looking for a few good members who use their DM10 kit as stock. I mean the kit itself and not the tweaks to the module. You can use a Studio or Pro kit. I hope to get both. The reason I'm looking for you is because I have been getting many questions about crosstalk and sensitivity issues for new users (these are typically people who have never played drums or edrums before).

What I'm hoping for is a few members who use their kit in a stock configuration and have their modules tweak so the kit preforms really well for them. Meaning good sensitivity and little crosstalk. The physical kit itself must be 100% stock. No mesh mods, four leg rack mods, separate snare stands, or any other modification that is outside of stock (as pictured by alesis).

Once a few of you come forward, I'm hoping to get you guys to dump your trigger setting to a .syx file. Trade them with each other to see how much you guys like each others setting and then choose an over all good one that can be placed in a sticky for all new owner (who are typically new to drumming in general) so they can have some decent settings from the get go (or at least better than stock).

I would do this myself, however my Pro kit is heavily modified and it would require me to undo all of my mods (very time consuming and I would have to replace parts which I no longer have).

The .syx file that is chosen for the sticky will get full credit for everyone on the forum to see. If you guys want, we can post several different ones and let people vote which one is the best.

If you would like to help, please upload a .syx file of just your trigger setting to this thread (again, you must be using a stock config). Be sure to state if you are using a Studio or Pro kit with your trigger config file.

Thanks for your help.

Additional notes from the DM10 manual. Keep in mind you will need MIDI-OX (PC) or SysEx Librarian (Mac) to preform any of these functions:

SYS (F4) Backing up Trigger Settings
Pressing SYS (F4) from the Main Utility menu lets you access a page that contains the module's various
system settings.
This page lets you send out the module's settings as a SysEx (.syx) file
to be recalled later.
1. Press UTILITY to enter the main Utility Menu.1).
2. Use CURSOR UP / DOWN to move through the menu items:
a. All Memory: All of the module's memory that can be saved
will be saved as a SysEx file.  This includesyour trigger
settings, Kits, and Sequences.
b. All Trigger Settings: Only the module's trigger settings will be saved as a SysEx file. (This is what is needed for this topic)
3. Press SEND (F4) to send the selected settings from the module as a SysEx file.

To load a backup SysEx file to the module from your computer, follow these steps:
1. With the module off, connect the module's USB port to your computer with a standard USB cable.
2. Press and hold the module's STORE button and turn it on. The LCD should display, "MIDI RESTORE
Waiting..." This means it is ready to receive a SysEx file from your computer.
3. Use a MIDI utility to send the appropriate SysEx file to the module (which will need to be selected as
the receiving MIDI device). We recommend the following utilities:
SysEx Librarian (Mac):
4. The LCD will indicate when the process is complete.  Once it is complete, restart the module.

I have added Tsints and ProbeGT's DM10 trigger setting files to the bottom of this post to make it easier to find them. Again, I would like to thank these two members for taking the time to post their setting and helping so many new members who are having issues with the triggering of their new kits.

Just restoring Trigger settings (not full module back-up)

--- Quote from: Essington on December 10, 2013, 06:08:08 PM --- "Just send the trigger settings without doing anything special with the module."

To restore just the trigger settings:

* Start with your module on and connected to your computer via USB (or midi I suppose)
* Select your module (or midi interface I suppose) in your SysEx utility (in SysEx Librarian it'll be in the drop down list at the top of the window)
* Send the trigger settings.
* The module will not acknowledge that anything has happened, but your trigger settings will be updated.No need to reboot or anything. Scroll through the inputs in trig edit and have a look at the shiny new settings.
I noticed that this works on the RedBox even if WriteProtect is ON! So I suspect it would be the same on the DM10.

I would like to help (stock DM 10 Studio) . Any quick advice on how to upload .sysx files to PC?

Thanks for helping out Tsints. The only advice I can give about uploading to a PC (because I'm on a MAC) is the directions on page 31, 34 of the DM10 manual.

I can tell you how I do this on my mac but it may differ slightly on the PC. On my Mac I use a software called SysEx Librarian (for the PC you might want to try MIDI-OX).

I first connect up my DM10 to my computer via USB, and then I power on the DM10. I then start up SysEx Librarian. I choose the DM10 as the device. I then click on the "Record Many" option. I then go over to my DM10 and go to the SysEx Send menu and high light the "All Trigger settings" and press F4 (SEND). The Sysex data is then recorded by SysEx Librarian and stored to a file. At this point I normally rename the file to something that makes sense. Like TrigBackup12_10.syx.

That is pretty much it. It should be a pretty small file, less than 1K (about 222 bytes I believe).

OK, I selected the DM10 as an input device, and when I sent the trigger settings through the module, this is what I got...

How am I going to save it as a .syx file?

I assume this is what we need from the command window...

SYSX: F0 00 00 0E 2F 08 00 10 01 01 00 13 04 22 01 02 00 00

SYSX: 07 00 00 00 00 F7

I saved it as a .syx file (222 bytes).

Hope it works...
