No need to connect via MIDI. Just connect the pads to whichever and run audio out of each into seperate mixer input.

Unless you were going to use built in rhythms there is no real need to synchronize the units.

I'm trying to midi from Roland TD8 to Simmons SD7PK


You need to be sure they are both set to the same midi channel.

No pad sound


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.

I have an IED 11 kit. Today when I plugged it in to play, both pedals have spontaneously stopped working to trigger the kick drum. I tried numerous experiments to figure out the cause of the problem. ...


Good job of troubleshooting... I assumed you have tried other triggers into the kick drum input and found it is dead. This leaves the problem in the "brain". Look in your manual for anything to do with sensitivity of the kick drum input. It is likely all the inouts are sampled and digitized by the same A-D convertor via a multiplexor switch. I was unable to find the schematic of your unit so I downloaded one for a Roland TD8. Often the different companies rob designs from eachother so one can glean methods from a different brand. As expected the inouts are conditioned and then go to a MUXX chip that samples the input. The signals are conditioned before going to the MUX by a limiter and before that there is an RF bypass cap on the input. IF you might have had a static discharge, that capcitor(s) may have shorted rendering those inouts dead. This is what I want you to try:with a suitable cable I would like you to pulse the kick input by momentarily connecting a 9 volt batery to it... try both polarities. If NEITHER polarity fires the kick, then I want you to take an ohmmeter and measure the resistance of the input. The Roland schematic has coupling capcitors and if your brand has similar circuits you should see infinite resistance... if you find it very low, say 100 ohms, probablly the RF bypass cap at the input is shorted. These will be surface mounted caps and you need to be a bit adept at electronic repair to replace them. Essentially I believe you will find a failure in teh interface ckt where those inputs come in.

My KD-8 bass drum pad will now only trigger if it is hit really hard- I've tried altering the sensitivity at the brain to no avail any ideas please ? Thanks


SOME of these have a small potentiometer inside the pad part... The pot is VERY fragile and one needs a small jewler's screwdriver to adjust. You have to be careful as excess pressure on the screwdriver breaks the part off the circuit board inside. The access hole is only about 1/8 inch diameter.

My roland td3 drums are playing the crash noise on every drum i am hitting even when crash is disconnected, why is this please?


Your Xtalk filter is set too low. Refer to the owners manual for how to adjust individual triggers' sensitivity to "cross-talk" (vibrations carried from other pads)
My bet is you unplugged the crash trigger, but not the cable from the actual module (the brain). If you have a cable connected to the brain but not to a trigger, than any little bump to the end of the cable that isn't connected can be picked up as though you hit the pad normally. (play with the end of the cable a little, you'll see what I mean. It's kind of neat.)

Pad wont respond


Hi, had similar problem too. What i did i tested the module and by removing the plug on one of the drums and test with another, drum pad,, if it doesn't work, that means you will have to open the electrical part of the pad and test if the wires are intact. I guess that would do.

You can pass your comment for more help.

Thanks for using fixya....

The cable assigned to my roland TD 4 mesh snare is not registering. I thought it a cable problem so a replacement was shipped however still the same prblem. I have ensured the settings are right so I'm...


You may have a bad solder joint where the jack for the snare trigger input is soldered to the circuit board. You will have to open the case and have a look. Make a note of how many screws and where they go etc. If you have a digital camera, take pictures as you go. We have a TD3 and it has two circuit boards one on top of the other.
