Alesis Trigger IO Reference Manual – revision Read more about midi, pedal, software, input, drum and triggers. Could this be the the Trigger iO will read both signals programming function. s not intuitive either – another good reason to RYFM (read your freakin’ manual). I have read both manuals (SD2 and Alesis Trigger IO) and haven’t found an answer. The SD2 manual has an area for hi hat mapping and mentioned that some.

I used a modified version of the instructions posted by Joe K on the VDrums. Here’s my modified instructions which assume a 1-zone hihat with a fully variable pedal: According to the documentation Superior is designed by default to work off “GM Extended” mapping.

Thus I did not do this personally. Mannual in turn lets Superior 2 fully utilize the pedal position for the various articulations 2. Create and Load Superior 2. Right click the HiHat to select it.

In the “Instrument” Pane lower right hand cornergo through each Articulation one-by-one and press “remove” to aless clear out all default assignments. You often have to click “remove” repeatedly to clear an articulation completely as most articulations have multiple assignments, so clear them all out.

Doing this step ensures that there are no unanticipated HiHat events. Play your hihat and and exercise the pedal. Verify that Superior 2. Mapping the pedal controller: Choose the “hatsCtrl”‘ triyger.

Type ‘CC4’ in the Key field and press enter. Your pedal is now mapped. Mapping the Open bow zone: Choose the “hatsTipTrig” articulation. Leave the HiHat pedal open completely. Strike the bow of the HiHat with stick.


Your hihat aesis is now mapped. Doing just these two articulations appears to provide the the full range of Open and Closed sounds while playing the hats and using the pedal. Now foot chick and foot splash. Mapping the Foot chick and Foot splash: Choose the “Closed Pedal” articulation.

With the HiHat open, press “Learn”. Step on the HiHat triggef close it. This will provide both the foot chick AND the splash triggering. At least it sounds like it is to me. Simply right-click the kit piece, select the appropriate articulatin, click Learn, and hit your triggger. Rinse, repeat, rinse, repeat. I simply didn’t learn it in S2 at all and let S2 do everything, which it appears to do with JUST the pedal and cymbal setup as documented above.

Alesis Trigger iO Manuals

For cymbals that have choking features. Gastric is the man!! I pulled nearly all of this info from the big honkin’ S2 thread in this very forum. Basically what that does is remove the IO’s hihat processing completely so S2 can do it all. Originally posted by Gastric View Post.

I’ve read the manual. It never says what “calibration” even means or does. Keep in mind I’m not educated in electronics at all. Everything I’ve learned is from reading here and my own touch-and-feel experience.

Here’s the pertinent info copied from my Yahoo Group posting here. This causes a problem as the IO is then triggering foot chicks well before the hats are totally closed which sounds horrible in the VSTi when you maual a chick sound in the middle of your open range.

It’s not that the IO doesn’t generate open, closed, chick sounds at all. There’s no way to control that transition point. Then the synth can do all of the processing. It gets a single velocity sensitive HH cymbal trigger, and the CC 4 info, and the synth does the rest. Otherwise if you map the foot chick trigger from the IO to aleis synth alesls get a foot chick sound and some closed hat sounds in the middle of your hat travel which makes no sense.

With AD it was horrible and confusing. You’d get open, partially open, tight closed, foot chick, partially close, tight closed. By no means am I saying what I’m doing is the absolute right way, mind you.


Just what I alesia to get it working to my satisfaction. I have my 2nd DIY kit up and running and can report that the foot chik sound from configuring just the pedal and hat piezo is not a real chik sound.

Instead it’s a mild hit of the hat due to it hitting the bottom cymbal with a fast choke due to the pedal closing. So it’s somewhat like a chik, but not the totally tight closed chik sound. Unfortunately there’s no way that I’m aware of to configure the Trigger IO to place it’s chik trigger at the end of the pedal travel, it always triggers the ip in the MIDDLE of the pedal travel oi is silly.

So if you use the Trigger IO foot chik trigger, slowly close your hats while playing them, you get: You get a lovely foot chik trigger in the middle of your hat travel which is obviously undesirable. At least tfigger it’s current version.


I am having these sorts of problems with my alesis trigger io, too! How on earth did you solve it eventually? How should one solve it in bfd? Both drumsets did this i have treid everything isnt it possible to get the same attack as when i use my mouse or maybe it is not possible to get a good sound when you trigger live i dont know. Maunal edited by hellforce ; Is my Computer not good enough? I made a cpumark 99 with my laptop 2ghz pentium dual core it scored and with my computer in the studio it scored and its a 2.

But i dont have a firewire soundcard so will try with my Pod X3 to my laptop will return with the result later. Originally posted by mabual View Post. Bought a new computer that helped. It seems that a 2. Have set everything to work with the Alesis Usb Kit and S2. Help Contact Us Go to top.
