To optimize performance for your particular hi-hat stand, run the hi-hat calibration in the "Trigger Edit" menu and then select "HH Setup".  

Then follow the on-screen instructions to complete the calibration as follows.

  1. Loosen the hi-hat clutch so the hi-hat pad is resting on the hi-hat module. 
  2. Press Trigger Edit, then press HH Setup at the top-right corner of the display. 
  3. Press Set on the display, raise the hi-hat back into the playing position, and re-tighten the clutch.  
  4. Press Finish. Follow the on-screen prompts.


To fine-tune the hi-hat performance, enter "Trigger Edit Mode", then select the HH trigger slot followed by the Advanced tab.

Then, adjust the Pedal Bottom" parameter until you are comfortable with the performance of both the open and closed hi-hat sounds.
