Re: Help with hi-hat closure

I ended up going back to the lemon HHC12 controller. The Hall effect sensor isn’t quite as smooth. It doesn’t seem to hit the entire range of motion, and the calibration line still bounces around a little.

For anyone interested.

Re: Finally Real E-Cymbals from Zildjian

a way to do it is there’s just one sensor on the cymbal, but a magnet on the drumstick, and a Hall effect sensor attached slightly above the center of the cymbal bell. The eDRUMin determines what midi notes to send based on the distance of the drum stick to the Hall effect sensor. So when you tap t...

Re: Finally Real E-Cymbals from Zildjian

We just need Rob to develop similar technology. 8-) I would LOVE to be able to use a low volume cymbal that isn’t dampened and can still ring out, yet is able to trigger VST drums. Maybe a way to do it is there’s just one sensor on the cymbal, but a magnet on the drumstick, and a Hall effect sensor ...

Re: Help with hi-hat closure

I honestly would buy another Hall effect sensor. I plan to build out a 2nd ED10 kit soon. Just looking for the right shells at the moment. My first kit is using a Hawk converted shell pack from edrumcenter, and they are awesome. Will likely go with them again. $129 per converted drum for their talon...

Re: Help with hi-hat closure

I would have paid even more than $30, knowing how well this thing works.

Re: Help with hi-hat closure

It’s working right! Funny thing is, I thought the magnet WAS on the nut. When I took the pics, I didn’t notice it had moved. I don’t think that was the root of the issue though. I think that only happened when I vacuumed out the dw5000 for the pics. Must’ve bumped the magnet. Anyway, moving the sens...

Re: Help with hi-hat closure

Well the sensor has to be well secured. If it can move around or even vibrate, that's going to be a problem. You might want to open the sensor up and have a look to make sure I soldered it well. I suspect it's fine, but you never know. Maybe your sensor isn't getting enough power? I did put a 0.1 u...

Re: Help with hi-hat closure

Do you have guidance you can offer on how to check? I’m not aware of any instructions. I just tried to copy what I saw in your pics in this thread.
