Superior hihat

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,


How do I programme hihat hits where the hats become graduallly more open (typically building up to a chorus etc.)

Keep in mind, I am doing this in either the piano roll or hyper editor with NO elec kit. I'm sure I saw this on the hatsrig.mov that is downloadable from the toontrack site, but at the moment I can't get that to play!


Any help would be much appreciated!

If you are talking about actually opening the hat more and not just increasing velocity, you need to trigger different samples that are typically mapped to a different key.


In other words, change to a different key every time you want the hat to be more 'open'.


How these samples are mapped, I couldn't tell you as I don't use Superior, but find the ones you want to use on your controller and then draw in the corresponding notes in the piano roll editor.


Hope that helps,

In Superior Drummer's Mapping page, go to Presets > MIDI > Note Mapping and select E-Drums.


In Logic's Piano Roll, open Hyper Draw and select Foot Control.


127 is totally closed and 0 is fully open, so draw a descending line to get a gradual opening.

I must admid ...redlogic...you really nailed it with this advice :D

I adore SD 2.0 and use it for everything I work on and I always need some extra "humanizing" in my arsenal. So BIG thanks to you.


One thing I note though..I had 4 regions of a simple 4/4 rock groove and I wanted to try your technique out. I wanted to have HiHat opening progression gradually from region 1 to 4. I followed steps you said and as you can see in my pic I was unable to make it happen because my Foot Switch automatization (blue line) was always showing up in my last region. So, I merged them all together to a one single region and than it worked perfectly. 8)


Thanks man.
