DEFINING SETTINGS FOR OPEN, CLOSED, and CHICK: Changing the settings for Open, Closed, and Chick sounds is pretty straight ahead.  Here’s how: Changing Open Settings: Editing the Open settings for a HiHat pad is simple.  Everything is exactly the same as for a normal pad.  For editing Notes use the NOTE EDIT footswitch as described previously.  For Channel, Velocities, and Gate Time use the KIT/PAD EDIT footswitch as described previously. Changing Closed Settings: Editing the Closed settings is the same as usual with one exception also have the HiHat pedal depressed when performing the editing functions.  An example will make this clear. To change the Note for the Closed sound do the following: 1.  Depress the NOTE EDIT footswitch. 2.  Depress the HiHat pedal also. 3.  While they are both depressed, hit the pad you want to change the Closed setting for.  Since the HiHat is depressed when you struck the pad, you will access the Closed sound for that pad: Pad6 HCLOS #042 ClsdHiHat 4.  If you now hit Pad6 again (with both the NOTE EDIT footswitch and the HiHat pedal still depressed), the Note value will increment. 5.  To decrement, “quick-click” the NOTE EDIT footswitch as described previously. To change the other settings, like Channel, Velocities, and Gate Time, use the KIT/PAD EDIT footswitch with the HiHat pedal depressed. Changing Chick Settings: To change the Chick (or HiHat foot) settings, do the same editing procedures as normal except simply “Chick” your HiHat pedal instead of hitting a pad.  Here’s an example: To change the Minimum Velocity for the Chick sound do the following: 1.  Depress the KIT/PAD EDIT footswitch. 2.  Close the HiHat pedal and release it to play a Chick.  The display will say: <<>> 3.  If you now Chick the HiHat pedal again (with the KIT/PAD EDIT footswitch still depressed), the Note value will increment. 4.  To decrement, “quick-click” the KIT/PAD footswitch as described previously. See p.21-25 in the trapKAT manual or HERE - [how to select hihat pads]. When using a HiHat controller pedal, you can also set the "Splash" sound. DEFINING SETTINGS FOR SPLASH: To edit the Splash settings involves a little more. To edit the Splash Note #, simply hit Pad6 repeatedly with the KIT/PAD EDIT footswitch depressed.  The rest is then the same. The Splash Channel, Minimum Velocity, Maximum Velocity, Velocity Curve, and Gate Time, are all determined by the settings of the Chick (see p.22). The “Ease” of Splash occurring can be “Adjusted” by hitting Pad6 with the GLOBAL EDIT footswitch depressed. Other HiHat topics: Foot Control Assign, Selecting HiHat pads, Train HiHat pedal.
