Has anyone else had problems with the ION pads? I've been using mine since early October, and lately, the most-used pads have been separating from whatever is directly underneath them. This causes a definite decrease in sensitivity.
First my yellow pad, and now my red have shown this problem. I plan on returning them, but I'm curious about any possible fixes there might be. Taking apart the pads and "burping" them like a tupperware container hasn't worked very well so far.
I'm getting closer and closer to just sucking it up and buying a Roland kit, but I'd like to hold off until at least January if I can.
* Are ALL of your cymbals not sensitive, or is it just one? All cymbals suck.
* Did you make sure they're plugged into the ports marked "Cymbal" on the module? (yes, people have made that mistake)100% sure they're in the right port
* If just one seems to be bad, plug it into a different cymbal port and try it there. Does it work any better there?Hi hat into crash with same results.
* Plug the other "working" cymbal into the port where the "non-working" one was previously. Is it any better?I plugged the crash into the hihat (green into yellow) with the same results.
One last question, how light can you hit the drum before it registers? I can hit it light and it won't register, but if I drop the stick on it, it will.
Sounds like I have cymbal problems :S
edit: while I was typing this msg, my drums just disconnected themselves. I will make sure this wasn't the ps3 setting which turns off controllers after 10mins of inactivity.
yah I'm going to. I've been playing for a bit, and it seems to be better in songs than in freestyle. odd
at least your not left handed......since ive pretty much decided that they are never going to fix the problem for lefties
Hey guys, first post here.
I got my ION drum kit today, and it's fantastic, but for one thing. The foot pedal makes SUCH an annoying sound, it's really throwing me off. At worst it causes me to lose concentration and miss notes I shouldn't (I play expert on 90% of the songs). Is there a ghetto-solution to this or should I pony up and pay 100 bucks (shipping to The Netherlands included) for the Rock Pedal? I tried searching here and google for a solution, but found nothing. Thanks.
I think my disconnecting problem was actually ps3's power saving option. after 10mins it's supposed to disconnect controllers. I didn't think it did this with the drum controllers, but it must. so I don't have disconnection problems. I will update if it happens during game play.
