What I aim to achieve by triggering my bass drum, is to have a powerful yet dynamic kick sound, easy to mix for the sound engineer. With those head triggers, I was always struggling to find the sweet setting spot on my 2BOX module.
I had to avoid any false triggering from the vibrations of the head, from the snare hits, but also detect fast and low velocity hits, AND keep a certain amount of dynamic. But now, with the Kaptor Triggers, it’s a life changer for me.
Not only they’re solid and reliable to be used with my Polish tank pedals (Czarcie Kopyto), easy to install and set up, they also make the settings so much easier to mess up with.
No more vibration disturbances, I can set the threshold and the velocity curve as I want.
I can finally choose to have a triggered kick sound that perfectly follows the real dynamic of my hits, or a death metal machine-gun like kick sound, even on a low head tension !
Not to mention that I’m now able to play on other bass drums, without having to touch any settings of my module.
That’s definitely a yes!
