Not sure what module you're using this with, but I'm familiar with Roland electronic drum pads and modules, and guess the following would stand true for any pad / module combo....
I would check the following:

  1. Is the cable correctly connected at the pad?

  2. Is the cable correctly connected at the module?

  3. Is the module sound turned up?

  4. Are your headphones / speakers turned on & up
    (do other pads sound)?

  5. Is the fader for the specific pad (or pad group) turned up?
    (On a Roland module, where the pad is AUX1 to 4 - the 'fader' button needs to be pressed in order to operate the AUX slider).

    The next couple of things are less likely, but possible.

  6. Does the pad have a polarity switch on? - try switching it.

  7. Has he correct pad type been assigned in the module?

  8. Has an instrument been assigned to the pad
    (Roland: Press INSTRUMENT, hit the Pad, select a sound)

If you get no joy with this - please drop me a message.

How do I program snare pad to sound like a clap?


That would depend on the make/model of the pad and of the sound source, but in general, just asign the pad trigger out note number to match the clap sound note number on your sound source.

I have a RMP-5 Rhythm Coach. I cannot get any sound from the pad when I practice. Help


Hi, after doing a bit of googling it occurs to me that the internal speaker is ONLY for the metronome / click & not for the drum sounds themselves. You will need headphones or some external audio gear like your hi-fi system or oth r amp & speaker. I found this "The pad has 54 sounds in it (covering all parts of the drum kit but mostly snares), which are triggered when you hit the mesh head, but these can only be heard over headphones. The built in speaker is only used by the metronome sound (when there are no headphones attached) and then it only has a beep sound attached to it. However, plug in headphones and you get a variety of available click sounds including a proper ticking clockwork metronome." Hope that helps a little? Good Luck :-)

My kick sound has died out of the kit, when i press the button there isnt a sound so i assume it doesnt have anything to do with the cables or actual bass drum pad. any ideas?


My guess would be something faulty with the cable connector to the kick pad.
Source the faulty link by reconnecting the pad so that:
1. A tom pad triggers the bass drums sound 2. The kick pad triggers a tom sound 3. Don't use cable you use with the kick when searching for the fault.
This should tell you whether it's the pad, the bass drum channel or the cable that is at fault.
Hope that helps!

When i use my epro live drums on live gigs i sometimes get no sound when i hit the pads specialy the snare pad


Hi,
Not used this kit inparticular, but if there is a main "brain" or sound mudule, check sensitivity settings. If not, take the pad to the store where you got it as the internal sensor may have gone, or the link lead may be faulty.

I have an electric triggered bass drum pad, and it will not trigger the sound through the machine unless I practically slam the pad the model is a KP65 bass drum pad, on a yahmaha DTXpressIV


Test the pad driving a different sound... If the pad is weak, the sensor probably came loose in it... They are a piezo disc usually like in older musical cards.

Some of the triggers have an adjustment pot that is very tender... ALSO there usually is a setting in the machine for sensitivity.

If this has just gone bad, it is likely the sensor came loose... repairable if one opens the pad...

I hit a pad and it plays a sound thats not assigned to the pad


The link to the manuals is here:http://www.akaipro.com/contentmgr/showdetails.php/id/1115/tt/5 According to the quick start manual you can assign different sounds to different pads and change them in the Program mode. See p.6 in the quick start manual and p.78 in the operators manual. There is an update listed on the page I gave you. I hope this helps.

DTXPRESS IV SPECIAL changing cymbal(crash) sounds?


hi,
the right crash is a '3 zone pad' (notice the semi-circular groove around the front edge of the pad).

this means you should get a different sound from the bell, the main area of the pad, and the front edge.

In order to mimic a real crash cymbal, the 'crash' sound comes from hitting the edge of the pad.

In reality, there are ribbon switches (like mobile phone keypads) underneath the bell & edge areas of the pad that detect hits to these areas.
