If you connect a hi-hat controller (FD-8/FD-9/VH-10/VH-11, sold separately) to the HH CTRL jack on the SPD-SX PRO and select “HI-HAT” for the LAYER TYPE, you can control the open and closed hi-hat sound.
If you don’t hear the closed pedal sound even though you’ve pressed the hi-hat controller, check the following points.
One pad per kit can be set to play when you operate the closed pedal. If there are multiple candidates, the following rules apply.
- When an external trigger exists whose Trig Type is set to “VH-10” or “VH-11”, that pad is given the greatest priority. You can set the Trig Type from the MENU -> SYSTEM -> PAD/TRIG IN screen.
- If there are no pads for which “1” applies, the most recent pad for which “Layer Type = HI-HAT” is set is given priority. Layer Type settings -> basic settings (PAD EDIT)
PAD 1 -> PAD 2 -> PAD 3 -> PAD 4 -> PAD 5 -> PAD 6 -> PAD 7 -> PAD 8 -> PAD 9 -> TRIGGER IN 1 -> TRIGGER IN 2 -> TRIGGER IN 3 -> TRIGGER IN 4 -> TRIGGER IN 5 -> TRIGGER IN 6 -> TRIGGER IN 7 -> TRIGGER IN 8 -> FOOT SW 1 -> FOOT SW 2
