Let me start by saying this might be a question that has already been answered, but I searched the forum and didn’t see it. If I missed it, apologies in advance.
A bit of background - I’m in the process of evaluating buying a Sensory Percussion setup. I’m all in with the tech, but I need to fit it in the budget. This isn’t a make or break question, but something I’d like to know in advance.
The question is about the possibility of using a double bass pedal to trigger different sounds. My idea is that each of the two pedals would be able to a different sound based on the software. My thoughts on how this might work are:
Use a zone that would normally for a different type of “hit” - I’m thinking “kick open” and train it with the second pedal using a different type of beater. If you set up the first pedal with a standard beater and the second with a wood beater, they should make different sounds on the head. If the second pedal was used to train the “kick open” zone, that might work. I don’t know enough to know if the training is sound dependent only or also location dependent which could affect if this works.
The second idea would be to use one of the parameters in the standard kick zone to trigger a different sound with a second beater. This is a less well formed idea but something I wanted to bring up.
Thanks in advance for reading and responding. I love the idea behind this product and am looking forward to joining the family.
