Default SPD-S left channel leaking to right still after hard-panned left

Hello everyone, I just registered and don't yet know the way around these forums. So pardon me if I say something stupid.

So yeah I have an SPD-S sampling pad and I have a problem. I want to use a sampled click to come through the left channel ONLY and the rest of samples to play through mostly the right. I use earphones plugged to the earphones output to hear the click in the left ear.

To achieve this I have done the following: firstly I put a dummy plug into the left of the stereo outputs in the back and I use only the right to connect to the mixing desk. I imported the clicks for the songs in stereo (from flashcard), but already in the computer I hard-panned them to the left, and leaved the right channels silent. I then imported my samples in mono since I cannot use the stereo output anyway.

Problem is, even though everything is set up in the right way logically speaking, and the real samples play fine, a quiet trail of the click still bleeds through to the right channel. It is as if there is an undesirable reverb/delay effect on it. Perhaps there is some effect left on from the effects of the SPD-S? I havent fooled around with the effects much yet since I don't need them really... How to turn them off?

Any help is appreciated since it is a bit annoying that the audience hears a click in a performance :D

I do the exact same thing as you (except I hard pan the click to one channel and the sample track to the other, and they're both on the same wave file), and experience the same bleeding of the click.

I haven't really found a solution for it, other than reducing the volume of the click track. I run the headphone out through a small mixer that I use for my in-ears, so I can turn it back up in my personal mix.

It's an annoying problem for sure, it seems that the SPD-S isn't able to separate the channels properly (or something to that effect)

The solution comes by knowing the unit intiumately. It isnt a fault as much as it is an extra step.

The SPD-S is set to record samples with Ambience set to ON.
This causes leak between channels.

Hold down the shift button and hit 'effect' - This tells you whether Ambience is on or off.

Obviously, ensure its off.

Problem solved?

So ambience leaks between channels?

I'll try it out, but I can't hear any ambience on the click track channel itself. I'll get back to you tomorrow, when I have access to the unit again :-)

Does anyone know if this actually worked on not then, did this stop the bleeding?

Yes it did, but it still isn't a very good method to have a click. I use a small external mixer now.

how do you use a click track through a small mixer/ why do you use a small mixer?

Hey, guys! Is it possible to use an external metronome with SPDS? I mean to connect metronome via left input channel and to pan sample to the right so we hear metronome and sample on headpones, but use only right output channel (sample) on monitors?

Thank You...

I'm having the same problem with noise on the output channels and head phone output. Did you solve your issue? I'm also getting the message "...memory error" on power up but after a few times turning it ON & OFF the boots without a problem (so far).

I use a Tama Rhythm Watch on stage and just set that at the appropriate tempo. I don't even use the audible click. I've trained myself to just follow the blinking lights. I make sure to start a sample on the one. Works like a charm. I know thatís not the issue youíre having but I thought I would through that out there.
