Pad Low and High Dynamics: The training of your pads determines two values: your Low Dynamic and your High Dynamic.  These settings tell where your soft and hard hits lie in the trapKAT’s range.  As well as training with a soft and hard hit, you may also go in and manually change these values yourself.  Here’s how: 1.  Depress the GLOBAL EDIT footswitch. 2.  Hit rimPad13 for Low Dynamics (or rimPad14 for High Dynamics).  The display will say: <<>> 3.  Hit rimPad13 (or rimPad14) again.  The display says: <<>> 4.  Hit a Pad.  The display will show you the Low (or High) Dynamic for that pad. <<>> 5.  If you strike that pad again, you will increment the Low Dynamic (higher Low Dynamic gives more of a plateau of your Minimum Velocity at the bottom of your playing dynamics.)  (A lower High Dynamic will make you reach your Maximum Velocity sooner as you play harder.) To decrement the Dynamics, do a “quick-click”.  (Release the GLOBAL EDIT footswitch and then quickly redepress the GLOBAL EDIT footswitch, without hitting a pad in between.) 6.  If you strike any other pad you will see the value of its Low (or High) Dynamics and be able to change its value. Hits that are softer than your Low Dynamic setting will play at your Minimum Velocity setting.  Hits that are harder than your High Dynamic will play at your Maximum Velocity.  Your Velocity Curve effects how quickly your loudness goes from the Minimum Velocity to your Maximum Velocity - as you play from your Low Dynamic to your High Dynamic.  Experiment with these settings if you would like to tweak your response. See p.26-27 in the trapKAT manual?
