For properly working and authentical e-drum translation + advanced additions:

(a "Halpern Sig/P3" kit can be great fun for e-drummers and provide so much more...)


∙ Hihat : variable CC hihat: integrated EDGE articulations!!! (all 7 stages!) + FIXED: stage levels, Open BOW articulations issue and open sound issue when closing quite softly.
(the issues : 1.: by default there is a quite extreme velocity-related sound jump on the 3 open BOW articulations "Wide", "Open3", "Open2" comparing input vel (lower) 126 and 127 ( = 126 sounds softly and the opposite of crashed and then 127 extremly increases level: sounds smacked and crashed. This won't work well for e-drumming. So I've fixed this.)
2.: Using the CC articulation won't allow altering the volume of single open/closed stages. As "Halpern Sig/P3" hihat IMHO really needs adjustments, I've just fixed this: the fixed CC hihat will now contain all articulations (all BOWs + all EDGEs) and each of them is adjustable in volume.
3.: when you close the hihat quite softly it won't mute instantly by default -> same issue like with "P4" then, getting an unwanted fade out ) ;

Hihat : the pedal note ("Chick") volume is significantly increased (not only the 6 dB that are available by default because that won't be enough in some cases) ;
Also, the Pedal Chick articulation gets a separated dynamic control! (as this is not possible with most e-drum modules/(trigger devices)) ;

+ CUSTOM hihat curve ( 👉 LINK )

additional Variable Hihat Feature: Consistently controllable 2-closed-stages Variable Hihat for GGD e-drummers 👉 LINK

∙ Snare : separated CENTERRIMSHOT ( + Sidestick) --> the range of Center Head Snare Samples is translated to the whole velocity range -> so the high velocity CENTER sounds will be played when hitting hard ( = no Rimshots on the center head)
the Rimshots will be available on the snare pad's rim (also the "Sidestick" with a velocity border, if you like)
You can also decide to keep some of the lower Rimshot stages within the main center snare (on high vel strokes) and only outsource the loudest Rimshots to the rim of the snare pad.🙂 ;

additional GGD Snare FIX feature: Snare Engine toggle 👉 LINK

∙ Cymbal Choking : you will be able to choke all the Cym sounds (except the Ride sound) by choking any of your crash cym pads (even choking the hihat can achieve this if you like). The Ride pad will exclusively choke the Ride sound and won't affect Crashes/Splashes/Chinas/Stacks. ;

additional Cymbal Choke Feature: "Mute Tail" articulations are triggered when cymbals are choked ( --> just like SuperiorDrummer3 handles cymbal choking! ) 👉 LINK

∙ adding a second Snare or call it Side Snare (as you deserve a second Snare and a rich in variety drumsound!) ;

∙ adding a (right (for right-handers)) X-HAT!! (as it increases pleasure of playing so much and provides a varied hihat sound!) ;

∙ adding a third TomTom + adding a left Floor Tom (so you can have the Tom setup similar to the INVASION kit) ;

∙ Double Bass Drum sound for single Kick Pads :
play a DoubleBassDrum sound with alternating Kick sounds (the second Kick will sound slightly different in order to achieve an authentic DoubbleBass sound/feel and to avoid machinegunning) and toggle the kick drum engine (default Single-Sound vs. advanced engine Double-Sound) after your musical needs during a song (by dedicated toggle pad hit) 👍 👉 LINK ;

adding more Splashes!! ;

adding more Chinas!! ;

choose and mix and set up the crash cymbal arsenal the way you like (for example you want to play the crashes which by default are only available on 1 slot) ;

If you want your custom settings on GGD kits (i.e. midi mapping and sound) and you want them to stay you can also send me your project files and I can add the mentioned features and send it back to you. 😊
