Any ideas, when I hit the high hat on my TD20 as it it opening the trigger doesn't seem to pick it up in time and I end up with no sound on the opening stoke. If this makes any sense to anyone could you explain how I can adjust this, I am just a drummer and all this stuff is like the dark arts to me.
Hi Hen and welcome to the Bose L1 forums.
I use a TD-12 Module with a non-roland controller, so it reacts differently than yours. I have no solution to offer you, other than you might have the two hi-hat *cables* backward. There is a trigger & a control jack on the hat I believe.
There are a few other TD drummers here who hopefully, will have something for you.
In the meantime, you might try the Vdrum forums.
Hi, Hen ... I want to echo Drumr's comment about the cables. I'm not a drummer myself, but I know when our Roland set w/ T20 was last moved, both the hi-hat and the one cymbal which has two cables had them reversed ... and they act pretty strangely when not connected correctly.
You might try re calibrating the hi hat offset, which (as you mentioned you have a TD-20) you may have already done. Loosen the top hi hat so it rests on the bottom and simultaneously press Kit and Trigger buttons on the module. I do this often to make sure settings are back, as variations in the hi hat can through things off after playing for a while, as can switching the connections, mentioned above by Drumr and Dan. (In fact for gigging, I use white highlight to mark cords and connections, as the inputs are VERY hard to make out on a darkened stage, even with a flashlight).
