I’ve had no problems with freezes like that after buying a Macbook instead of the Dell XPS I had before. But I’ve had alot of misfires and mistriggers on the shows I’ve played. However I will give it a shot this summer again. I’ve really dived into the threshold, sensitivity and velocity settings inside SP, and that has helped so much on the misfires so far.
It would be cool to share ideas and experiences with live gigging and soundchecks here?
Also: i asked Tlacael a couple of questions (how the threshold works and if you can get by without training all the pads) and here is a small snippet of response, that might or might not be helpful. It was to me at least…
" 1. The threshold setting (red dotted line in the threshold panel) is always active. So, you can use this to threshold out quieter hits or cross-talk on the whole drum. You can try bringing the threshold up on the kick drum to avoid after-hits, but you can also try putting the “sensitivity” setting all the way to the left.
2. you can certainly only train the zones you’re gonna use in performance. However, if you, for instance, only train center, edge, rim tip, rim shoulder, and then play a rimshot, the software will have to decide which zone it is closest to, rather than you being able to decide. Training the rimshot and then using the “assign to” feature lets you decide which zone rimshot triggers, even if you don’t want to have a discrete rimshot sound. I often don’t train all the zones, especially on my toms."
have a great day
