The Trigger Interaction Screen allows you to suppress interaction from one trigger to another (if you hit one Trigger and another Trigger that is mounted on the same stand also plays - that is interaction.) Enter the PRE-EDIT Screens by pressing down on Footswitch1 and releasing. Then, hit PAD8 4 times to see the TRIGGER ADJUST Screen 3: <<<TRG1(TRG1-9 or DKAT) interaction, matrix:, amt=OFF(OFF, 6-200%)  10(10-130)ms, Ft1 & hit dk hard>>>  The settings are determined automatically for you by the drumKAT if you hit the Trigger hard. The matrix is which other Triggers play a little when you hit this one. The amount is how much of a signal is seen on the other Triggers when you hit this one. The “10ms” is how long the false signal is seen on the other Triggers after the actual Trigger is hit. See Chapter 10 in the drumKAT manual, “TRIGGERING”, for more detailed information. (SOUND ADV will increment the Trigger # for you.)
Hit SCREEN ADV and you'll see TRIGGER ADJUST SCREEN 4:
<<<Select #of scans, to measure peak, of trigger inputs, trg1 6(3-9) SCANS>>> Here you select how many Scans or snapshots to look at the Trigger signal before deciding how big of a signal it is. The smaller the number of Scans, the quicker the signal will play (less delay). The bigger the number of Scans, the more accurate the determination of how hard you hit it. Basically, the goal is to find the smallest number that gives accurate dynamics. Good Trigger pads are fine with 3 or 4 Scans. Acoustic Triggers and Trigger pads with a poor signal require 7 to 9 Scans to properly see the real dynamics of your playing. See Chapter 10, “TRIGGERING”, for more detailed information. (SOUND ADV will increment the Trigger # for you.)
