Default Edrums dictanary?

There are a lot of terms that Iím unfamiliar with.....I feel it would help me understand my drums a little better esp. when setting up that desired sound.

Terms like threshold....it would help me to know what it is Iím adjusting.

Gain?

Some other words I canít remember


Iím not complaining.....I just donít know

Hi there.

Here is the definitions google threw up:

In electronics and audio consumer electronics gain is a unit of measurement used to mean the ratio of a signal output of a system to the signal input of the system. Gain is a term most commonly associated with amplifiers.

A compressor reduces the level of an audio signal if its amplitude exceeds a certain threshold. It is commonly set in decibels dB, where a lower threshold (e.g. -60 dB) means a larger portion of the signal is treated (compared to a higher threshold of, e.g., −5 dB).


As far as I am aware, adjusting the threshold on electronic drum kits will alter the trigger sensitivity.
This is mainly used to cut out any double/false triggering.

Download some Yamaha or Roland manuals. They'll explain (often with pictures) with these settings mean - some manufacturers use different terms :)

Here's the two you mentioned:
  • Gain is the sensitivity of an input - use to boost or cut the input signal to match your playing style or connected pads. Similar to the gain on a mixer.
  • Threshold is the limit below which a trigger will not sound.

A quick Google brings up this useful page:

My Roland drums has a manual explaining those things. You should be able to find an online manual for yours if you go to manualslib.com


Threshold as a general term usually means a level, a point, or a border if you like, at which something changes.

For my drums, the manual says:

Threshold: This setting allows a trigger signal to be received only when the pad is above a determined dynamic.

Also, in the dictionary, dictionary is spelt dictionary. :D
