I am a brand new (and happy) owner of the AD + Retro pack. The plug-in is unbelievably good, and I am really satisfied with it.
I have two questions, which you might help me with:
1) The Hi-Hat controller/pedal unit in my Roland TD-6K e-drum kit works the way that, when played with sounds from the module, it produces audible different sounds depending on how hard it is pressed, i.e. depending on the pedal-position angle.
After I connected my e-drums with Nuendo and Addictive Drums, it seems that I only can get three sounds from AD through my Hi-Hat controller: open hi-hat sound, closed hi-hat sound and foot-closed-pedal sound. There are no nuances in between the open and closed hi-hat sounds, depending on how tight I press the pedal. As soon as it is not pressed tightly, the sound immediately goes to "open". I tried to "mess around" with "Foot close sensitivity" and "Foot splash sensitivity" in the AD Map Window, but that didn't seem to help: it rather created a strange blurry of notes during the playback of my recording.
Can anybody give me any advices on is it possible to resolve this, and how? Ideally, I would like to have all the Hi-hat open <=> closed ratio sounds which I usually have from my e-drum module, depending on how hard I press the HH controller pedal.
2) Choking the cymbals
Although Roland TD-6K has the "cymbal choke" function, and although the boxes with "cymbal choke" function in my AD Map Window are all marked correctly, the recorded MIDI doesn't "recognize" the cymbal choking on my e-drum rig. I know that I can "type in" the MIDI notes in Nuendo to resolve this, but I would obviously prefer to have that already recorded during my playing.
Any information and advices would be very welcome.
Thanks in advance and all the best from Croatia.
