What is 'On Trigger'? One trigger for all pedals.
Electronic detachable sensor (trigger) for various types of both single and double pedals with base under the footboard.
It tracks the motion of a pedal, unlike regularly available models, which in most cases track motion of a drumhead. Thanks to this feature, it can transmit the signal slightly before the beater's impact, and thus fairly eliminates delay of the module. Setting up the electronic module is easier. There is no need to adjust drumhead
tuning, use a sand drumhead
or a drumhead
muted in any other way, nor stuff your bass drum with anything (as with standard triggers) and thus unnecessarily spoil the sound of your bass drum. It is also applicable to any kind of practice drum pad. Another advantage is, that it improves the ability to combine live sound with the module or a computer one. Even in higher speeds, the sounds match, what is also problematic with usual triggers, especially when applying a double bass pedal on a single drum.
After installing on a single or double pedal as instructed, you can use the sensors on any pad or bass drum. Setting to another drum is done in seconds and usually it's not needed. The triggers will easily handle a differently tuned drumhead, a differently shaped rim or somehow tilted bass drum. This is exactly the problem with the standard trigger. When you install the trigger on a another drum, you'll usually find out, that you need to adjust the settings in the module, tune the drumhead, or mute the bass drum somehow. If you are also forced to use someone else's drums at concerts, and still want to have sound similar to studio recordings, our sensors will really make it easier.
Is it possible to connect two sensors to one module input?
The sensors can be connected to one input in the module either by Y stereo cable if the input in the module supports a dual trigger, for example by: (KLOTZ AYS-1) or Y mono cable, for example: (KLOTZ AYU-2) in this case, the module will have to handle both sensors at once, and the configuration of the module will be more complicated.
Is the pedal movement somehow affected by the triggers?
No negative influence was observed. The sensors work only as a some kind of spring, that helps to return the pedal back to the starting position faster.
There are two sources of sound. A live drum and a sensor mounted on the a pedal, and then the sound from the module.
Will these two sounds match properly?
Yes, from our experience, the sound match better than from a classic trigger. Bass drum tilting, loose drumhead, second pedal rotation and tilting, etc., have been tested and really in very rough way.
The result is, that the sensors, even with bigger interventions, still triggering the sound from the module, and the sound still match with the live drum better than from a classic trigger. On the contrary, we recommend combining (layering) the sound from the live bass drum and the module.
Can the triggers play straight through some PC software?
In this case, you need a program that actually acts as an electronical module and the signal from the sensor is converted to midi, which then triggers the sound. There is a number of these programs...
Are the sensors dynamic?
Yes, the transmitters send a weaker signal with a weaker stroke and stronger with stronger one.
Does the pedal need to be drilled or somehow modified?
No, the sensor is stuck to the pedal base. No further action is required on any pedal from our list.
