Specfic nformaton for e-drum systems
Before using your D-Drums with BFD, you will need to make some adjustments to the drum brain. By default, the D-Drum brain sends out multiple notes for each pad, for the positional information. You need to reduce this number using the NoteP parameter.
Kick, snare, rim, toms: set to 1 note position.
Hihats, cymbals: set to 2 note positions, unless you specifically want to use only 1 zone.
The D-Drums cymbals send out choke information as aftertouch signals.
There is a preset keymap supplied for the D-Drum4 SE factory settings with the aforementioned NoteP adjustments.
When using certain V-Drum brains, you should be aware that the hihat pedal position MIDI CC is not sent until the hihat surface is triggered. This seems to be in order to reduce the amount of data transmitted over MIDI.
When testing a TD setup with VH-12 hihat, it came to our attention that the nature of the VH-12 can lead to problems. This hihat trigger consists of 2 surfaces that move in a similar way to areal hihat. However, with positions other than closed, there can be extra notes sent out if the two surfaces hit each other at anytime after the hihat is struck. This is on top of cross-talk issues between bow (tip) and edge (shank) zones. Unfortunately

this is a result of the nature of the VH-12’s physical design. You maybe able to minimise these symptoms with careful setup of the Offset setting for the hihat in the TD20.
To get around the problem of cross-talk between tip and shank zones, it is recommended to set the Retrigger threshold in the BFD Options panel to a figure of 10 or 15 ms.
Many Roland brains send out positional information for drums as MIDI CCs: it is best to make sure these MIDI CCs are disabled in the Hit Options panel.
With the more advanced cymbal triggers, turnoff positional control on the drum brain (or disconnect the Ride Edge trigger input) – you will still be able to use hit and bell sounds as long as the cymbal has multi-zone capabilities).
The V-Drum cymbals send out choke information as aftertouch signals.
Currently, preset keymaps are provided for the TD, TD expanded, TD, TD and TD. The TD, TD and TD keymaps are unverified by us and are provided courtesy of Till
Schleicher, Eric Kitter, Alex Pickard and Ken Radford.
The default DrumKat pad setup is not suitable for BFD. In the Keymaps folder, you’ll find a keymap and accompanying
