General Midi isn't recognized on Transmit/Export. Partially on Recognize/Import. GM Drum Sounds compatitable.

 

 

Yes, some of the sounds are Pearl drums and check www.redboxsoundshop.com for updates.

 

 

This is because the rim trigger is an ON/OFF switch and it doesn't have any dynamics.

 

 

Yes, there are many effects, including reverb, flanger, chorus, vibrato, delay, EQ, and compression that can be applied. One effect per "Kit" can be used.

 

 

The Cross Talk control in the Trigger Menu section allows you to set the value to eliminate cross talk. The higher the value, the less likely one pad will trigger another.

 

 

Increase the value of the Threshold control until the false triggering is eliminated.

 

 

You may have the sensitivity set too high. Try lowering the sensitivity and the threshold and see if the dynamic range improves.

 

 

The switch trigger in the rim is very sensitive and can be triggered accidently by hits just glancing the rim. Please adjust your technique or lower your drum to minimize hitting the rim accidentally.

 

 

Try the Retrigger Control. Lowering the setting allows the REDBOX to capture minute and closer-spaced playing such as buzz rolls.

 

 

No. The switch triggers we us in our rims cannot be programmed to be rimshot and cross stick at the same time. It can, however, be one or the other.

 

 

The REDBOX uses a "Round Robin" protocol that automatically changes the samples being played to eliminate the "machine gun" effect
