Alesis Strike Pro SE Cymbal issues
« on: March 27, 2021, 01:31:01 PM »
So after having played not so long (maybe a few weeks of playing sessions) I started to notice some weird noise occasinally when playing to a song via headphones. Having investigated further I noticed my hi hat edge hits would produce some kind of ghost hits. I hit the edge once but somehow I get 2-3 sounds in a quick succession. Tried to mess with all the options in the module (retrigger for example) and also check my hi hat stand if there was something going on, but couldn't find a way to fix it.

Playing earlier today I noticed the same thing happening with all of my cymbals' edges when hit lightly; I get double hits.

Is there a setting im not familiar with or is there just something wrong with the module or possibly ALL of my cymbals' triggers? It's really frustrating because I can only hit my hi hats bow and can't really play my cymbals without force.

Everything else has been working without issues for now.

sorry, I've got no answer, but I am experiencing the same! Little ghostnotes that feel like a retrigger setting should get rid of.
Hope to hear from someone who was able to tackle bust those ghosts! (sorry.....)

In v1.5 the HH edge threshold is really low (5)..the Ride Edge is (1)...try increasing in the trigger settings..see if it goes away.
While testing different triggers I noticed on some trigger inputs if you set below 4 (or zero-out) the trigger will start to fire or fires repeatedly on it's own

Hi to all!

I have the same problem on my hi hat (Strike Pro SE). If I take a single soft-normal strike on the edge, the edge sound is not triggered. Instead, the bow is triggered 2-4 times rapidly. If I hit hard on the edge, the sound of the edge is correct, without that weird bow sound, but when I hit hard the dynamics are lost!

I've tried swapping cables, changing threshold settings, retriggering, crosstalk. Reset factory settings, update firmware to 1.5...  Nothing works.
If I connect the PAD of the hi hat, for example to the snare input, it also triggers the 2-4 sounds if I softly hit the edge. PAD problem?

Have you found any solution?

Thanks!
